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!

Halls Chophouse is not just having a meal, it is a complete dining experience. From the gospel singers greeting you at the front door (Sunday brunch only) to being personally escorted out of the restaurant by the owner-you feel like you have just enjoyed brunch at a friends home. The food is excellent, the servers are friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend Halls to anyone visiting Charleston.

Amazing hospitality. Truly a highlight during our trip to Charleston! Whenever we make it back to town, it will be at the top of our list.

French toast was out of this world amazing. Gospel Brunch was fabulous.

This was a first visit to Halls Chophouse and the food was for the most part delicious. One member of our party was not a beef, pork, or fish/seafood eater so options were limited. Could it hurt to put a chicken or pasta/risotto style dish on the menu that did not contain meat or seafood? The Brussels sprouts were cold and not as crisp as they could have been. The macaroni and cheese was delicious. Service was very attentive, and the live jazz music followed by recorded music was fun. Our group was impressed by the selection which encompasses both Okd and new!

I went to Hall'so for my birthday and could not have been more pleased with my experience. The staff was so friendly and the steak was the best I've ever tasted. I will definitely be recommending them to my friends and family who visit Charleston.

We brought some out-of-town family to Hall's to celebrate my husband's birthday and had a great time. Everyone was very impressed with the food and agreed it's well worth the pricey bill. Best meal in Charleston!

Our experience was amazing. Everyone was our server and even the owner, Mr. Hall, played an active part in the experience. We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone celebrating an anniversary, birthday or other special occasion. The prices are steep the service is excellent. The restaurant week special was nice. They should consider offering more of those on a regular basis.

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.
