    The guest experience here was on point. We were greeted with a very big welcome from Mr. Hall when we walked in. He seemed so genuine and later brought us champaign since it was my birthday. The staff was excellent, as was my filet mignon. This was the best customer service I've received at any restaurant I've ever been to!

    Greeted warmly when entering. We were a group of 8 and the owner immediately connected with one of our party and realized they had common friends in Utah. Service was outstanding with about 6 people serving our entrees at the same time as well as clearing the table at the right time. It was a bit pricey, especially the wine but I guess it was "you get what you pay for."

    For the past three days we've been eating our way through Charleston for a friend's bday weekend, and we all agreed that Hall's was the best overall experience. We were seated promptly, servers were well trained and attentive and the meal was spot on. Two of our party had perfectly cooked steaks. I had the shrimp and grits; grits were creamy and flavorful and the shrimp delicate and succulent. The lobster mac & cheese, asparagus and sweet potatoes were nice sized, delicious sides. I will say the bread was a bit dry, but the chocolate fudge dessert was over the top. I've read some negative comments about Billy Hall's greeting at the front door. We thought he was genuine and welcoming. We would recommend Hall's and we will be back.

    Saw Hall's on Trip Advisors Top 100 right before I left NH to visit my Charleston friends booked a reservation immediately! Hall's is #4 and #1 in Chareston! Took my Charleston hosts to brunch as a thank you! All absolutely loved it. Mrs. Hall and her son Billy were great and the staff was over the top. Thank you Kristen, Stephan and Devon! Loved the popovers in the bread basket! We were upstairs and could hear the music while conversing. Fun and relaxed. All the dishes ordered were done perfectly. If you only have time to hit one restaurant while in Charleston, Hall's is a must! I will go back next time I'm in Charleston and my local friends now have a new favorite! Best staff ever! I felt like we were old friends by the time we left! Hugs

    Halls is a special place. When you walk in the door expect to be greeted directly by one of the Hall family members who will make you feel appreciated immediately. The service is perfect. The cocktails are works of art. And of course- the steaks are one of a kind. What an experience. Its always a dining highlight of the year.

    Public parking only street or lot. Greeted with nice hand shake from owner. Sat upstairs - much quieter than downstairs due to live music & bar. Nice ambiance. Service was exceptional - attentive without being intrusive, great follow up and plating our side dishes on our plates was very rare. We felt like we are the only ones in the restaurant. Timing was perfect, not rushed. Food options were excellent; petite filet was the best I have ever eaten (and I'm a foodie who eats all over the country.). Cowboy ribeye very tasty, and both steaks cooked perfectly as requested. Drinks were very tasty/strong. Wine recommended paired perfectly with steak. Free desserts, perhaps because this was our first visit? 3 hours later...time flew!

    My husband and I dined here based on a recommendation from a friend. We were greeted by Billy Hall upon arrival and thanked for coming in. We had a 9:00 reservation but waited about 40 minutes to be seated. Once seated, two glasses of champagne and a delicious appetizer arrived with apologies that we had waited so long for a table. We enjoyed a fabulous dinner. The service was impeccable. We were thanked by our server and hostess for coming in and looked for Mr. Hall on our way out but didn't see him. We were half way down the block when we heard someone calling us and it was Billy Hall chasing after us to say "thank you". Wow! We can't wait to go back to Charleston and Hall's Chophouse!

    First let me start by saying halls chops house is second to none when it comes to service. Again second to none. The owner meets you at the door to greet you. He also tells you thanks and talks to everyone as they leave. We were there for are annerveristy which Mr hall himself treated us too some free champagne. Food sIwise the spicy cream corn was probably the best thing I have ever ate. My wife loved her steak as so did the couple that ate with us.

    This was our first experience at Hall's, even though we live in Charleston. We ordered the tuna tartare, caesar salad, chopped salad, filets, and lobster mac & cheese. The only thing that we weren't blown away by was the lobster mac & cheese. Our server, Anna, also brought us a side of the creamed corn, which was amazing. After dinner we got the bread pudding, which is a must!

    It was a last minute decision to dine and we could only get in at 5pm, but that worked for us. The food and service were amazing, and Mr Hall and his staff made an ordinary day into a special occasion. I had the quail and my husband had a steak. I think the creamed corn was spectacular, which seems funny to say but it really was so good. I would definitely go back and definitely recommend it.

    We had a group of six people visiting from Boston and everyone we knew recommended Halls Chophouse. From the moment the door was opened and we were greeted by the owners and staff, the evening was wonderful. The steaks were fantastic and the service was great. Waitress was chatty and fun. Definitely an expensive evening with appetizers, steak and drinks, but well worth it on a vacation with friends.

    We were greeted at the door by Bill Hall and we were treated like family for the rest of the evening. The staff was abundant, courteous, and extremely knowledgeable. The food was magnificent. Bill returned to our table on at least three occasions, once to give my wife and I two glasses of champagne in celebration of our anniversary. The night ended with Bill again coming outside after we had walked out to thank us for coming and to wish us a happy anniversary again. It was a great evening and we will definitely spend another special occasion at Hall's.

    I have been to Hall's many times. We live in HH/Bluffton - and anytime we go to Charleston the first thing i do well in advance is book a table at Hall's. When guests from the North are visiting, first on the list is dinner at Hall's. The food is superior. The wine list has a wonderful emphasis on limited release & small wineries that produce great wines. You must try a steak - can a steak be truly exceptional - yes - if you go to Hall's. The service is 5 star across the board. This family run venue's roots are steeped in the highest service standards and they excel from the moment you open the door. Everyone at Hall's is energetic, without intrusion and truly enjoys their work. Halls' is a standard from which others should learn.

    My wife and I had one or our greatest dining experiences at Hall's. Our waiter, Kasonda, was really great. We'll ask for her again. The filet my wife ordered was flawless, as was my dry aged ribeye. Lobster mac and cheese was as much lobster as mac-superb. Roasted brussel sprouts were the best we ever had. We were happy to see the half-bottle wine list-great for a couple and well-diversified. My wife's birthday was made all the more memorable by the restaurant's gift of dessert, a wonderful multilayer caramel cake topped with bananas Foster. Can't say enough good about this establishment.

    This was our second visit to Hall's, each time celebrating a milestone in my son's life. The staff and management at Hall's are so accommodating and wonderful! Service was great and the food was out of this world!!!!! The only thing that was less than great was the noise level on a Friday night. We had to have a late dinner, 9:30 pm, and there was wonderful music being played downstairs but it made it difficult to hold a conversation. We still had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

    Upon entering the restaurant, we were greeted by the owners. Maybe it's just me but I have never been greeted by the owner of a restaurant upon entering, so it just kind of set the bar for the rest of the night. I ordered the bone in filet mignon and wow. Just wow. It was quite easily the best steak I have ever had. Alongside with sautéed mushrooms and loaded mashed potatoes, it was certainly a five star meal.

    This was our first dinner at Hall's Chophouse and we were celebrating our anniversary. The food was delicious but the experience goes way beyond the food ..... you are treated very special at this restaurant. Our 2 servers were very attentive and explained everything. We were greeted by one of the Hall family who made us feel very welcome. To celebrate our anniversary we were treated to complimentary glasses of champagne and when we didn't have room for dessert they also included a dessert in our take home bag so we could enjoy later. It is pricey - but a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion. One last note ..... the creamed corn is incredible!
