Steakhouse
Hall's Chophouse is a family steakhouse and iconic Charleston institution. Decidedly old-school, this refined eatery excels in prime cuts of beef, luxurious raw bar offerings, and original takes on traditional sides (pepper jack creamed corn, sweet-and-sour collard greens). As for hospitality, it doesn’t get much better than Hall’s; expect highly attentive service and an eagerness to accommodate for all diets.
Our recommended attire is business casual. For those casually dressed or last minute reservations (or walk-ins), we have walk-in tables set aside in our bar areas to accommodate. Baseball caps are allowed in our bars, but are not allowed in our dining rooms. Any type of cut off T-shirt is strictly prohibited.
We accept walk-ins! (when available). Our full dinner menu is available at the bar. The bar is open until midnight to cater to the Charleston nightlife. We feature live music every night, classic jazz on select evenings and soulful sounds during our Gospel Sunday Brunch.

    We decided to try Halls for dinner since everyone said it was so good and man it was AMAZING!! I would definitely come back to this restaurant and recommend it to everyone. The filet was awesome and the best side was the creamed corn! I got the Filet over mushroom risotto. Everyone that was with us enjoyed their meal and did nothing but raved about it all weekend.

    Our server was delightful and very helpful. We were 2 women, and didn’t want to overeat, so w truly appreciated her guidance with the menu selection. We started with a Pomegranate martini, and it was delicious. The veal chop was perfect, as were our sides. It was our first time in Charleston, and I’m sure we’ll be back, and definitely come back to Hall’s.

    This was our second visit to Hall's Chophouse, but our first for their brunch. We both enjoyed a cup of she crab soup, I had the crab cakes benedict and my husband had a bone in rib eye with mashed potatoes. Both dishes were outstanding! I wish I could eat there every day. Loved talking with the owner and the staff. They made us feel welcome and they were glad we decided to join them. Oh, and the gospel singers were out of this world. We had a great time. We'll be back.

    Full disclosure: I never made it to dinner. Restaurant staff informed me that they would call me and let me know if they would be open following a recent hurricane scare. Never got a call and missed what I had hoped was going to be great birthday for my wife. Things get crazy on the coast during a hurricane event and things like forgetting about a reservation you promised to call are going to happen at even the best establishments. I really want to like this restaurant, as they have plans to open a location near me, so I will wait another 3 months for a Saturday night to open up and give it a second chance. This review will be updated at that time. In the meantime, I would recommend other diners be vigilant and double check reservations and conversations with restaurant staff.

    We consider Hall's Chophouse Charleston to be the finest restaurant in Charleston. Plain and simple. We walk in the front door to be greeted by Billy Hall who immediately makes us feel like family! We are always greeted by genuine smiles by the entire staff. The waiters / waitresses are routinely right there when we need them and inconspicuous when we don't need them. The food is cooked to perfection (once delivered to our table, the waiter always makes us cut our steak to check the cook of the meat). The waiter's knowledge of the menu is extraordinary. If I had a complaint, it would be that our dinner is always so delicious and filling that we never have room to try your desserts. We're gonna have to work on that! Thank you Hall Family and Hall's Chophouse for always making us feel like part of your extended family.

    We had a fantastic meal, visiting for a special occasion. For starter, I had the best onion soup I have ever had. It had the addition of onion rings piled on top and I have asked my wife to add it to her own recipe! I then had a delicious steak whilst my wife had the succulent lamb. I finished with a yum bread pudding with a whiskey sauce. Not a cheap meal but absolutely delicious and I would highly recommend a visit.

    Have heard of Halls for ages, but never had indulged on one of my frequent trips to Charleston. The reputation is for excellent food and outstanding service. My son, on an earlier visit with friends, proclaimed to the world that he had enjoyed the best steak he’d ever eaten. My two friends and I concurred that the service was superb and the steaks among the best ever. However, there was one shortcoming: the onion rings!!! I consider myself a connoisseur. The onion rings served that evening were very large - fine - but coated in a heavy, doughy batter. The batter must be light, flaky. Overall perfection is so close. Let the onion rings lead Halls to its culinary apotheosis!!!

    If you know you will be in Charleston on a Sunday morning, please make reservations for the Gospel Brunch at Halls. The food was fantastic, the service was flawless and the music was great! Billy Hall was there the moment we walked in the door with a lovely greeting, and he even checked in a few times to see if were were enjoying our meal. I have never experienced customer service like this. True southern charm. We will be back the next time we are in Charleston.
