First time customers during restaurant week and they definitely won us over! Classy establishment with charm. Greeted at the door and made to feel incredibly welcome. Fantastic ambiance with a gentleman playing the piano. Staff was very attentive. Filet cooked to perfection with the addition of the creamy gorgonzola just can’t be beat. All the right options on the restaurant week menu that we got to enjoy some of the top items we had read about. Definitely will be repeat diners every visit to Charleston!

We had an amazing time dining at Halls! Dan, our server, was excellent! A few of my friends had never had the true Halls Chophouse experience and they were blown away by the outstanding service and friendliness and professionalism of everyone we encountered. Also, two thumbs up for Piper, the sommelier that talked wine with me. She's simply a 10/10. We can't wait to come back! Thank you to everyone!

Food was fantastic, but the server continuously hit on my date. Every time he walked over he leaned over close to her side with his hand behind her back, on her chair, and kept asking her questions like I was not there. He would ask questions, but only engaged with her answers and not mine. I really didn’t appreciate the experience provided by the server and would likely not bring anyone her in the future. I expect that from Chili’s , not Halls Chophouse.

To be clear, the food was fantastic though. No better Filet Mignon in Charleston.

Halls was the culinary highlight of our trip to Charleston. Our waiters were warm, friendly and very attentive. They have really figured out how to provide a great dining experience. Every bite of my meal was excellent from salad to dessert. I will be sure to visit twice on our next trip and have already recommended this restaurant to others. Highly recommended!

Wonderful dining experience from the service to the food. Sarah was our primary server and she was fantastic! We had the prime steak tartare, which was out of this world! After the salads, which were great but no one wants to hear about, we had the grass fed filet and the bone in filet. Both were tasty, tender, and cooked to perfection. We finished our meal with the carmel cake sans powdered sugar and it was perfect. I can’t say enough about the service. From the hostesses to the sommelier, the manager and server, we were treated like we were royalty. We will definitely be back soon and numerous times!

When I first started going to Halls 4 years ago it was one of the best steak houses I had been to outside of Las Vegas or New York. My last trip to Halls was a disappointment. The sides were still great but the steak while good was over priced. The service was fine for outback but not for what is supposed to be fine dining.

Hall's is one of the best restaurants in Charleston. They make the best cosmo anywhere! The sweet and sour greens are delicious and the filet is indescribably delicious. It practically melts in your mouth! But there are lots of places in Charleston with great food. What really sets Hall's apart is the service. From the hostess who seated us, to the sommelier, our waitress, and the staff who brought food and water to our table, everyone worked together to make us feel like family and to make this a wonderful dining experience.

We were meet at the door by Mr hall. Promptly seated and offered a glass of bubbly for our anniversary. Special and steaks were described to us and steaks were shown. I had dry aged NY strip with truffle butter. My wife had grouper special both were amazing. Had lobster mac and cream corn half portion size. For dessert we could not decide ordered bread pudding it was great and they also gave us the Carmel cake with bannas foster sauce. The Carmel cake was again complimentary for our anniversary. Amazing experience not cheap but worth the price. We will go everyone we are in Charleston

Hall’s Chophouse is the best dining experience overall. We felt welcome the minute we walked in the door. We had the fried green tomatoes for an appetizer and shrimp & grits entree. The food was amazingly delicious. The service from all the staff was superb. We loved this Sunday brunch experience and the singers were outstanding. We loved the layout of this restaurant as the seating was not over crowded like most downtown restaurants. I would recommend this restaurant to all my Charleston friends. We are looking forward to bringing family and friends to experience this gem of a restaurant on King Street.

We have been celebrating my husband's birthday at Halls for the last three or four years. They never disappoint....my husband says they have the absolute best steaks! I always get the bread pudding. We look forward to our next visit for the whole year each year! Even though we were seating next to a loud group, Erin's smile and attention to our needs made our night very special. She was not even our server! We love dining at Halls!
