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. This is a can’t miss stop in Charleston!

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.

Our meal was wonderful. My daughter had the Bison filet which was awesome and I had the aged filet. Couldn't have asked for better. The owner even came to our table a couple of times. Very personable. The service was perfect. The meal was very pricey, but we knew that going in for the most part.

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.

The entire experience was absolutely amazing. The setting and Ambiance was wonderful. You felt welcomed as soon as you got to the door. The owners are there to greet you which is rare. The service was impeccable. Everyone that we saw working operated as one and they moved like a well-oiled machine. The synchronicity of their movements was mind-blowing. They did everything with such style and grace that I was utterly floored. The food was out of this world. Each course was delicious, excellently presented, and dare I say they have the best steak that I have ever tasted in my life! Even the decor was absolutely beautiful . Kudos to the Hall family!

We were greeted very warmly by Mr. Hall himself along with otters, which was very inviting. We arrived early as well and we're pleased to be seated about 20 minutes before our reservation. The food was good. We got the sweet potato pancakes, lavender French toast, and shrimp and grits. One person in our party also started with the she crab soup and that was wonderful. The only downside is that we were seated in the back portion of the restaurant and you can't hear the Gospel singers back there. And of course it was our luck that they didn't make it back to our section either. Unfortunately that was one of the reasons as to why we wanted to go on Sunday - for the music. Overall everyone was very warm and welcoming, the food was good and we would definitely come back.

We were bummed with this trip. My friends and I go for gospel brunch about once a month, (usually on second Sunday). This time I had a good friend in town so we went a week early. We raved about their biscuits and gravy and how fluffy their eggs always are- along with the egg bread. Everything was just completely off this past trip. I hate leaving a bad review because everything has been great before, along with dinner and happy hour, but this past time disappointed everyone at the table. The bread was burnt. They didn't have the gravy for the biscuits and gravy so two of us got another option- the chophouse omelet. The meat was extremely greasy, everyone's eggs at the table were burnt and the people who got the potatoes said they were hard. Like I said, it's one of our favorite spots, but I wish I had taken my visiting friend elsewhere to spend $200 on a breakfast none of us enjoyed.

I attended the first time not only to sample the menu, but also to hear and see the internationally known Plantation Singers who always delight me with their attire and preformances. I would recommend advance reservations if desiring a meal during peak serving times. I was taken to my seat immediately and can't say enough good things about the treatment from the staff. Being there to celebrate my belated birthday was a wonderful memory and plan to do it again. I've never experienced such a caring staff of waiters and attention from the owners. Thank you for turning a meal into a delightful, grateful event!

I would recommend your restaurant to everyone I know that would be in your area. We actually chose your Greenville location for our sons rehearsal dinner and the experience was great also. Thank you very much for our experience it was very enjoyable. We will definitely be back. Dan b

We went there to celebrate my son's 21st birthday. Everything was exceptional from our waiter to our food. We had a very relaxed and wonderful time. We came last year for his 20th birthday, he loved it so much we came back again this year. The waiter was wonderful in recommending drinks and food. They took extra care of my son and made him feel extra special. Truly love this place and we will be back next year for his birthday..

We enjoyed our meal from beginning to end. It was my birthday and the owner gave us a complimentary glass of champagne and a dessert which we could barely eat because we had so enjoyed our steaks and sides.
Brandon and Shauna were great servers. Brandon gave us so much information about each dish, it was hard to choose. The steaks were so tender and we loved the creamed corn topped with Parmesan cheese as well. The bone in filet was the best we have ever tasted!!
