It was our 45th wedding anniversary. We let them know and EVERYONE made our day special. We were treated to complimentary champagne and an outstanding dessert. All our servers made it a point of wishing us well and made us feel welcome. Our meals were exceptional including our salads. In a city like Charleston with so many good restaurants we feel fortunate to have chosen this one for the many "extras" given to us. We will go back EVERY time we are in Charleston.

This was our second time going for a Special Occasion (1st- Birthday, 2nd- Valentine’s Day) the food was delicious and tasted so delightful. The service was great everyone busy and constantly doing something to make a better experience for the guest. It was a very bustling venue. The piano and downstairs crowd during a busy Thursday night made it quite loud. I suggest if you are looking for a quiet evening dinner maybe try somewhere else. I personal enjoyed both experiences and will be visiting again. Overall, a wonderful evening.

We come here often, at least once every other month or so because we enjoy the FANTASTIC food and the amazing service by every single staff member. It has always been a great experience everytime. This time (February 15th, 2018) was slightly different because of a table next to us. A woman in the party was very drunk and loud and extremely vulgar. My fiance and I are not bothered by cursing being in public service we are around it often, but this was a different level of obscene. No one at her table tried to quiet her or tell her to stop. The staff was very kind and understanding to us and even attempted to find us a new table but we didnt want to lose our servers and they had already finished their meal, so we thought surely they would leave. We were wrong. Our servers were acutely aware of the problem and appeared to have alerted management staffers a few times but no one asked her to stop. The only negative I would say or thing i would change about this would be that management should step in and be more curt to those who are invading the tables around them with obscenities especially when children are in attendance. They were buying wine by the bottles so I'm sure they were racking up their bill. But there's a time when it shouldn't matter if they're spending hundreds of dollars in your establishment, behavior should be addressed and/or removed from the restaurant if need be. This one incident definitely will never change our opinion of Halls, we will be coming back the same as always. We love this restaurant over all others because you guys continuously deliver exceptional service and food.

I cannot say enough good things about every aspect of this meal. The service was flawless, the sommelier was very helpful and Tommy was charming as usual.
We ordered the bone-in filet and the lamp chops. Both were tender, delicious and expertly cooked. I would highly recommend the creamed corn and the sweet and sour collards...fantastic sides!
If you are on the fence about going here...go!! You will not be disappointed!

I took my wife to Halls for an early Valentine Dinner. She has always had Hall's Chop House on her Bucket List and she was absolutely blown away with the entire experience. We both loved it. Truly AMAZING and oh so delicious food. I am just sorry it took us so long to actually give it a try. We WILL definitely be going back for some more.

Everyone was so nice from the second we walked in to the second we left. The waiter was extremely knowledgeable about the menu. And, on top of that, we requested to sit upstairs by a window in our reservation and got exactly that. Would recommend and will definitely be going back!

Experience from beginning to closing the doors was memorable. We arrived a little early and spent our dwell time at the bar. Bartender was attentive but not underfoot. Our bartender made recommendations to replace our favorite beverages. He was spot on.

The menu was varied and everything sounded wonderful. I chose the prime rib and my wife chose a filet. Both were outstanding. We appreciate the side dishes are served family style. As a result, we able to try many of the side dishes and they were wonderful.

We highly recommend the Hall's Chop House.

I took my wife to Halls for her birthday! Greeted at the door with a handshake from Billy Hall. SUPERB food and service - EXCELLANT wait staff. Live jazz music in the background set a romantic atmosphere creating a memorable birthday celebration. We each had aged bourbon Manhattan cocktails, 6oz grass fed filet, with side of mushrooms. I had half dozen oyster Rockefeller and the wife had green fried tomato appetizers, both fantastic. Whiskey soaked bread pudding and glasses of champaign were provided complements of the house for desert! Total cost was $224, but well worth it. Next birthday we will be headed to Halls again for sure. My wife is still raving that it was the best birthday ever!!!

So thankful we ran into someone who recommended this place during our stay in Charleston. Fantastic venue from walking in to exiting. Some of the best customer service, food and beverage we've ever had the pleasure to experience. Perfect for a special occasion or date night, but can also accommodate families and large groups. Meeting Billy Hall was a wonderful treat!

One of the best restaurant experiences we have had since moving to Charleston 3 years ago. The level of service was a 10, as was the ambiance and the food. Some how the staff has mastered the choreographed art of overseeing every detail without the guests noticing their presence. It was elegant and stately while at the same time genuine, warm and friendly. We were greeted by both the owner and the son and the GM checked on us as well. I can't wait to go back again! Very impressive indeed!

An amazing experience from start to finish. Was met at the door by one of the family owner/operator. We were seated right away and every staff member we came across was so pleasant, definetly full of southern charm. We had a amazing meal, Halls is the best steak house we have ever been to beating out the like of Berns and Gallgers. We had mentioned it was our anniversary that had brought is there and shortly after we were seated the owner brought up champagne. We wanted to speak to the owner regarding the wonderful service, he sat and talked with us for over 10 mins. It was a very memorable night. I would high recommend Halls Chop House.

Excellent service. The server was extremely attentive and catered to our special dietary restrictions, and was happy to do so. He made the experience worthwhile. The dry aged steak was underwhelming though. For the price, I would expect for it to be tender, not tough. My wife’s steak, on the other hand, was very tender. She got the grass-fed steak. Fun place overall for a special occasion.
