    While on vacation in Savannah and Charleston first time to either city, we wanted a special night out. We were directed to Hall's and we went...twice! Our second trip there was our last night on Chalreston and it was by far the best dining experience we have ever had. The ambiance is lovely, the owners on site, and staff impeccably trained. The food was delicious...and great blend of traditional steakhouse with Southern touches. The owner remembered us from our earlier visit, sent complimentary champagne. Wait staff remembered our preferences. It was truly amazing!

    Excellent quality food , from steaks to vegetable. Service and Hospitality is as expected for Charleston. Great experience for a special night out. Would make a point to hit Hall's if able. If you are a steak eater the quality of Beef and presentation was second to none. Wife had a vegetable plate of all things, it was again over the top. A+++

    WAY to noisy. That's wasn't Halls fault though. Our reservation was late, 9pm. There were two parties in our dining area. One was a 14 top and the other was an 8 top. All guys draining heavily. Very loud. Over all ok. I'll get a much earlier reservation next time. That should help. The wait staff was superior to any place I can remember eating. They were knowledgeable and friendly. Our host, Brian, was top notch. Best front of the house guy I've ever seen work.

    The owners of Halls have mastered hospitality! I have never felt so special and comfortable at a resturant in my life. The food is absolutely amazing. We both had ribeyes and can honestly say it was without a doubt the best steak I have ever eatten. We also ordered burbon bread pudding and it was out of this world!! We will be back as often as we can!

    Visiting Charleston for our 25th anniversary and booked a reservation based on on-line reviews. We were not disappointed!! This was probably the best meal and best service that I've ever had. Staff was very friendly and inviting, owners and other family members also introduced themselves and thanked us for dining with them. We will definitely makes reservations again next time we are in Charleston. Highly recommend dining with them.....you won't be disappointed!!!

    This was our first dining experience at Halls and it was amazing. I have to start off with I made the reservation for the wrong week - they were able to accomidate no problem. Since this was our anniversary dinner I was so thankful! The staff is amazing - all of them. The service could not have been better if they tried. Both my husband and I think our meals were the best steaks we have ever had and we have enjoyed top notch steak houses in a few states. Seriously, we can't wait to go back. Everything was cooked perfectly and seasoned beautifully. Our cocktails were amazing and Mr. Hall stopped by a few times to wish us a happy anniversary, bring us champagne, and thank us for dining with them. We felt like guests, not customers.

    Hall's not only had delicious steaks, sides, and drinks, but also wonderful service and atmosphere. There was a live pianist, singer, and saxophonist playing as you entered as well as an owner greeting you and shaking your hand to say thank you for joining them tonight. We went on a Thursday night and it was quite lively! I was surprised for it wasn't a Friday or Saturday. They had a great team of people working there, our hostess was very friendly and cheerful, our server was nice and knowledgeable, and the family themselves made it even better. It's a great place to go to feel welcomed, especially since we were from out of town, and I would recommend them to a family, couple, or group! It's expensive, but worth it!

    My husband took me here for my birthday. We were early for our reservation but were seated right away. The owners son brought us champagne when he heard it was my birthday. The waitress was attentive and knowledgeable. We were also given creme brûlée for free too! My husband had the ribeye and I had bison. We will definitely be back to this restaurant. One of the best dining experiences ever.

    The management and staff were very welcoming and accommodating to the members of my party. One was on crutches and they made seating adjustments to keep her comfortable. The birthday girl was surprised with a huge slice of chocolate cake, which she does not eat chocolate or cake, but they made an adjustment and gave her ice cream. The steaks were superb and the family style way of serving the sides to each person was a definite change from other restaurants.

    It was our anniversary celebration and Hall's kindly changed our reservation from 5:30 to 6:30. The bar was hopping and yet the bartender had our drinks to us in a flash. Anna, our waitress, had a great sense of humor. Steaks were cooked perfectly and my veal chop was excellent. Creamed spinach was a little-off and no one finished it. There was free glass of bubbly and sides for our anniversary. We'll be back, maybe for Gospel brunch?.

    We have dined at Hall's in the past and loved it. However, this time was not so great. There was a party of 75 dining at the same time as regular guests so I think that caused a lot of our issues. We waited over an hour for our entree and when it arrived both meals were incorrect. My husband got the wrong steak and I got the wrong side dish. Plus we both found the meal flavorless.

    The restaurant was recommended to me by a work colleague. My wife was over from England, so I want a really nice place to take her. The experience was far greater than expected. We were greeted by very friendly staff. The son of the proprietor introduced himself and also introduced the father. Never had a welcome like that before. The waitress (from NY) was very friendly and helpful throughout. The food (starter and main course) was superb and the whole experience was exceptional. Even when leaving, the son offered his help during our visit to Charleston. Our meal time was a little too early to enjoy the entertainment. Nevertheless, it was a very enjoyable time Thank you everyone at Halls for a great evening that will never be forgotten

    I usually do not do brunch, but our travels brought us to Charleston early on a Sunday so we booked a reservation for brunch. We were greeted at the door, seated quickly. The service was great. The food was outstanding - we had the buffalo special and Belgium waffles. We also had bloody Mary cocktails and they were great with a Charleston touch of a shrimp and okra garnish. The interior is very nice. The wine list is also extensive.

Charleston is known for it's great food. My fiancee is a bit of a foodie and she agrees Hall's has all the others beat. The bison special and the Rib-eye were delicious and you must have the creamed corn side! A dinner at Halls is a truly wonderful experience. We cannot wait to return!
