    After reading all of the glowing reviews, I thought that maybe I might expect too much. But from the moment we walked in, everything was amazing. The pride that everyone takes in the restaurant is immediately apparent. I don't think I have ever had better service anywhere. You really feel welcome by everyone. And the food was incredible. We each had steak, but 3 different types. They were delicious, cooked perfectly, and huge- none of us could finish! The sides were great too, not to mention the french onion soup and the oysters rockefeller- yum! Oh and the drinks- the Manhattan was awesome & the Whiskey Bread pudding- wonderful. We will be back for sure.

    food was great, service was friendly and attentive, the Hall family members who work there and their support staff make you feel as though you are being welcomed into their home, and they remembered to ask about a food allergy that I had noted when I made the reservation a month prior.

    I took my wife to Halls Chophouse for our anniversary, and from start to finish it was amazing. The inside of the restaurant is beautiful, and we were greeted by the owner. He wished us a happy anniversary and thanked us for coming. The cocktails were great, and the she-crab soup was delicious. They bring out a sample of all of their steaks to show you and help you decide what you want. I had the filet and my wife had the dry aged Strip. Both steaks were absolutely splendid and melted in your mouth. For sides, we had creamed spinach, creamed corn, and lobster macaroni and cheese. All three were great. After dinner, the owner stopped by our table with some complementary champagne. We had cheesecake for dessert and it was SO good.

    This was my 2nd visit to Hall's. The first was in May for our 50th anniversary. It was such a total wonderful dining experience that my Wife and I wanted my Son and Daughter-in-Law (Brian and Paula) to have a similar or if possible, a better experience. I think we and Hall's achieved that extra level of greatness. My hat is off to the Hall Family, as they always go the extra mile to make you feel at home from the very first minute. The food was wonderful and the service exquisite. Special thanks to our wonderful server Anna for making the whole evening a very special one. Rest assured we'll be back for our next special occasion and we'll also zestfully recommend Hall's to our friends.

We arrived a little early and they were happy to seat us. The owner was so friendly as was the entire wait staff. The food was AMAZING. We truly felt like family at Halls. Highly recommend!

    We went to Hall's Chophouse while honeymooning in Charleston. Although we hadn't informed them, they still gave us a romantic table by the window. Our server, Amy, was wonderful. Attentive and knowledgeable and full of energy. The lighting and the energy level of the dining room was perfect. Everyone there was having a great time and that type of energy is both difficult to come by and hard to produce. The Hall family hit it out of the park. The food was amazing. My husband is STILL raving about our meal. The Hall family greeted us when we arrived and shook our hands when we left. It was a rollicking good time accented with Southern hospitality. RUN to Hall's Chophouse. Go hungry and expect to be wowed. xo The Colberts

    While on a short trip to Charleston, this was my splurge meal and was everything I had hoped it would be! During the day while sightseeing, we overheard others talking about how "Halls was the best." I had already made reservations for that night so this was good to hear. Upon our early arrival, looking a little worn from our day, we were greeted warmly by the hostess and the owner. Promptly seated at an excellent large table for just the two of us. The servers were extremely knowledgeable about everything on the menu. I had the bone in filet which is pricey but worth it. Just as tender as my heart! Everything was EXCELLENT from the time we arrived until our departure.

    My wife & I chose Halls as part of our 25th wedding anniversary. While we have made many trips to Charleston, we had not had the opportunity previously to visit the restaraunt. While their cuts of beef are the only things mentioned as 'prime', the entire experience was prime! Truly great service, great ambiance, and of course, great food. I opted for the cowboy cut of the ribeye (24oz?). My wife chose the petite filet. We also ordered the lobster mac & chesse and the asparagus with hollandais sauce. Topped it off with the Creme Brulee. A five star experience all the way! Don't miss out...

    One of the best restaurants i have been to!!! Service is excellent, everyone is friendly and very professional. The food is phenomenal. Loved my ribeye with gorgonzola melted on top. Favorite side was the sweet corn. Shrimp and Grits was also very good. Pear martini was ok, would have liked it to be sweeter a little bit, the grey goose was pretty strong. Bar definitely did not skimp on the alcohol on this one. My friend ordered the French Kiss (Grey goose pear with grapefruit?) which was also great. My husband ordered the dry age ribeye which was also excellent. Very pricey but worth it for special occasions. Deserves to be #1 on tripadvisor (under fine dining).

    Food was excellent, service was good. We were very early for our reservation but they took us right away. Table was nice by the window but it was all a bit noisy to be romantic. I would say it is more vibrant than romantic. 12 oz filet was awesome, onion soup, cheese cake are all things I would order again. I would say 4 1\2 stars. Just a bit too noisy to give 5 stars but a real nice dinner spot.

    If you wish to be treated special and have a one of a kind dining experience, then definitely dine at Hall's Chop House! The Hall family goes the extra mile to ensure your every need is met. They have a fine wine list, also. The live piano music adds to your special dining experience. Upon arriving and again at departure, one of the family members extends his or her best wishes and thanks you for coming. By the end of the evening, you feel like royalty!

    I dined at Hall's for the first time last night with a friend. Even though the entire restaurant was packed, we were seated very quickly and greeted by a server taking our drink orders and some managers wishing us a good time. Mr. Hall himself personally came by the table several times to ensure we were enjoying ourselves throughout the evening. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. My friend got the bison special done med. rare and I had the scallops. Both dishes were incredible, and the risotto that came with mine was the best I'd ever tasted. The food arrived promptly and hot. We split the whiskey bread pudding for dessert, which was delicious. I will definitely be dining at Hall's again.

    My wife and I saved Hall's for our last night in Chrleston. The service at Hall's is outstanding the moment you walk in the door. I ordered a dry aged KC strip while my wife ordered the dry aged Tomahawk bone-in ribeye. Our steaks were cooked as ordered, medium rare. I have had the opportunity to dine at numerous steak houses including Bern's in Tampa. Halls is my new favorite Steakhouse. In a word everything is fantastic. I highly recommend Hall's Chophouse.
