We dined here while visiting Charleston for our anniversary. Overall it was very good. The service was very very good although our waiter was very chatty. He was very knowledgeable. We split a wet age NY strip, baked potato, creamed Spinach and creamed corn. Also we had the chopped salad. All the food was really good except the main dish, the steak, which is what we went to Halls for to begin with. We should have gotten the dry age and not sure why they don’t just dry age all of the steaks. Our steak was very chewy and just so so given the high end restaurant and steak house. The steak rated a 6 out of 10. The other dishes rated a 10. The service was a 10. And for our anniversary they gave us prosecco and a dessert. That was real nice. So overall we liked the restaurant but wish the steak was the best ever. It was not memorable. We would give Halls another shot but not get the wet age steaks.

Fine dining at it’s best! Probably one of the best steaks I have ever had. Was a bit pricey but worth every penny. Waitstaff was polite and attentive. Our server, Valerie, was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Over all a great dining experience.

My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary at Halls Chop House in Charleston. We both ordered steaks -New York strip and Filet Mignon... Best we’ve ever had. Cooked to perfection and not salty like most other restaurants that serve steak. The portions were huge! The Simple Greens salad and panchetta roasted Brussels sprouts were also delicious as was the caramel cake. We were greeted promptly when we arrived. Everyone was friendly and the atmosphere was perfect. Highly recommend this restaurant for great food and service!

Both our meals and the service were outstanding. The only reason we will not return is because it's a bit pricey and not in our usual price range for dining out. The meal was a gift to us and we certainly enjoyed it. But if you can afford it, you should have a great experience!

My husband said it was the best steak he ever had. I had the scallops but I wished there were more of them. The crab bisque was delicious also. The staff was very friendly & helpful. Would definitely recommend to anyone going to Charleston.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by Billy Hall, the owner, and it made to feel as welcome as possible. Our seating was fantastic in the side dining room. Billy brought us complimentary champagne for my girlfriends birthday and was constantly checking on us throughout the meal. The service was second to none as the staff was right there for any request. The food is impeccable and of the highest quality. I would recommend Halls to everyone. A truly spectacular culinary experience.

I screwed up the date for my reservation but they still found us a table and then proceeded to knock it out of the park service-wise. I cannot recall ever being treated so nicely anywhere I have ever been. It was a magical experience from the moment we walked through the door.

Have been to Halls many times and each time the service seems to get worse and worse . Food is great but very overpriced compared to some other steakhouse restaurants in the area that in my opinion are just as good. Mr. Hall himself is there on occasion and greets people at the door . When I went to talk to him when leaving to tell him about the issues we had with our service he was very rude and said he didn’t need our business because his restaurant is the best in town and to try and find somewhere better! A very pompous response ! You couldn’t pay me to eat there again. Dinner for 3 and $800 later and he could care less if you had a great experience or not. Won’t be back!

 (Wilmington)·Dined on November 9, 2017

My wife and I visited Halls while in Charleston celebrating our 20th Wedding Anniversary. This was only our second visit to Halls, only because there are so many fine dining choices when visiting Charleston. On our first visit, several years ago, I enjoyed our dinner and the food was great, but I was not blown away. This visit was totally different. It may have been a combination of the food and the great service Dirk (our waiter) provided, but I left much more blown away by the restaurant and the staff. The staff went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our visit and our anniversary. Dirk did an amazing job making sure we had an over the top experience. From the appetizers, the drinks, our meals, and desserts, it was all amazing. I was overly impressed by the special Bison Filet being served this night. It was the most tender steak I have eaten in a very long time. To top the entire experience, I come home tonight to find a personal thank you note from the restaurant and Dirk. Best customer service ever. Will definitely be returning more often when in town.
