Food was incredible. We were in charleston in transit South, and had heard raving reviews and had to try it out... our expectations were met and more. Great staff, and the meat was incredible, not to mention the sides. All around exceptional evening - Y'all do it right. Can't wait to return.

Once again Hall’s Chop House did not disappoint and my expectations are very high for this dining experience! We were a party of 4 celebrating 3 Birthdays. We were greeted by Billy Hall and served complimentary celebration sparkling wine upon being seated. The service food and wine was excellent! A wonderful plate of complimentary deserts were served to top it all off! The Hall family sure does know how to make their guests feel special!!!!

As always no trip to Charleston is complete without a visit to Hall’s Chophouse. Hall’s never fails to exceed our expectations. Our group of four each ordered a different appetizer. We had a crab cake, Oysters Rockefeller, bacon steak, and steak tartare. They were all excellent. The guys ordered steaks. I had the dry-aged ribeye with mushrooms and onions. My friend had a dry-aged NY Strip. Our wives ordered lobster tails. We had the creamed corn and the Brussell Sprouts as sides. The food and service was fantastic. Can’t wait to return.

We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant and felt it was well worth the price. We shared the tomahawk steak and it was amazing. We were celebrating our anniversary and we were given a free glass of champagne to toast with and the waiter bought our dessert. We will definitely come again.

From the moment my family of 4 entered we have had wonderful, memorable experiences. From being greeted at the door by a member of the family, to scraping the last crumbs from our rich, moist chocolate layer cake we have been treated with utmost courtesy and respect. The food is even better than expected and service impeccable. I highly recommend Hall's for any occasion, or when you just don't feel like cooking.

We always take anyone who visits us to the Sunday gospel brunch since it showcases southern hospitality, great food and southern gospel music and when they return to us they always ask to go to Hall's again. Hall's is the BEST advertisement for gracious southern welcoming hospitality so we will always go back!

As always, an incredible dining experience! One of the factors making each visit special is how the service team goes above and beyond to ensure the customer has the best possible information allowing them to order and enjoy what is ordered. Brandon Durham our primary server this attention to customer service and the Hall's way of making each customer's meal memorable. BTW - the food was excellent!

We went to Halls on while we were on our honeymoon. The food and service were fantastic! We were seated in a booth in the bar area, and it was extremely loud— so it would have been difficult to hear if our party was any larger than 2! Overall it was a fantastic experience and we will definitely be going back!!!!

The staff here is really outstanding and thoughtful. However, the noise level is deafening and the restaurant was full of drunks, including one elderly woman who was so drunk that she fell in the floor and couldn’t get up. There were younger people so intoxicated that they were stumbling out the door. I’m all for fun, but this wasn’t the ambiance I expected at this type of restaurant. The food was mediocre. The staff is the only really great thing about this place. I would only recommend if you are looking for a very rowdy and loud dining experience.

This was an exquisite experience. We were celebrating our 20th anniversary and we were treated like royalty. They wished us a happy anniversary at the door and provided a complimentary champagne and desert. This is a top notch establishment with top of the line service.

Some family who are local to Charleston recommended Halls, and we are so glad we went! Of all the outstanding restaurants in Charleston, Halls was our favorite and best experience. I can not express enough how great our time at Halls was. The building was beautiful and clean, full of friendly conversation but never loud. The steak was perfectly cooked, and because all we did on our trip was eat, they allowed us to share our steak- they cut it in two and cooked each side at my wife and my liking. However, what sets Halls apart from all of the other incredible foodie havens was the staff. They were polite, charming but never fake, attentive but not overbearing, and highly knowledgeable of the food they served. The owner Tony Hall Jr. met us as we entered, shook our hands, and struck immediate conversation. As we were leaving, we almost felt like he was waiting on us to come down so he could meet us as we left. He made us feel like we have been friends and known each other as he stood outside his establishment and spoke with us with ease and comfort at length. It was a wonderful evening, our best night of the 4 nights that we were there, and our best dining experience of the 10-15 restaurants that we went to, all of which were highly regarded.

Amazing dinner. We were there for our anniversary. Bryan was an awesome host/waiter. Natalia is an excellent sommelier and made some really great suggestions. Mr Hall greeted us on arrival and treated us to a celebratory pineapple infused vodka at the end. Everytime we have been here we feel so welcomed. The Veal chop and the Bison filet were both excellent and the chef made us both a sweet version and a separate savory style foie gras appetizer. What a delicious experience.

Best experience in a restaurant I have personally ever had, including my boyfriend. Most amazing steak ever, and the owner was right at the door introducing himself to everyone. The staff was amazing and made everyone feel so welcomed and at home, our server was the absolute best! The owner even personally brought us champagne to congratulate my boyfriend and I on our anniversary and even surprised us with a special dessert! The food portions are huge and completely worth the price you pay! We will be back very soon.
