Hall's is one of my ATF's. Tommy Hall and his dad have made this place an iconic stop for Charleston visitors. May be the best wait staff in the U.S. Food good ...you bet. You will feel special if you decide to try Hall's.

Not impressed with all the hype. $200 for cold fatty chewy prime rib and stringy flavorless falet. Good service but not worth the price at all.

We normally get seated upstairs, but this time we were seated downstairs by the window. The draft from the window was extremely cold and the music and bar noise was very loud - could not even talk among our table. My husband and the other couple with us, all ordered sweet tea. It was brought to the table; however it was not discussed before hand that they only have unsweet tea that you sweeten yourself. I know when this happens to me, I will then order another beverage, but they didn't get that offer. I thought the desserts were not as good as in the past. The butterscotch cake tasted more like just a butter frosting cake and the cake itself was hard. The carrot cake was really little - yes they stated it was a mini carrot cake, but it was really small compared to other times when we have had dessert there. We normally go to Hall's at least once a year and skipped last year, so I was extremely excited to attend; however with the cold draft and loud music it was hard to enjoy. We will definitely be back, but hope they fix these issues. Thanks!

The service and Ambience of the restaurant was very much on point. The food although good was plain & did not have much flavor to it. As well for Restaurant Week the selections were good but not great. Moreover the choice of the sides I found disappointing.

We have lived in Charleston for 42 years, and seen many restaurants come and go. We also usually don't make a practice of repeatedly going back to one particular restaurant, simply because there are so many good restaurants in Charleston and the surrounding area to choose from. However, Hall's is one of those restaurants that we always seem to want to go to again and again and again. The food is fabulous, the waitstaff is superb, but the service from the owner, his son and even the mother is beyond belief! It reminds me of a very elegant Italian restaurant in Atlanta, where the owner personally came to your table to greet you as if you were a treasured friend, not just another customer. Unfortunately, the restaurant in Atlanta is no longer there....... Here's hoping Hall's will be around for many years to come!

Halls was great as expected. We went for Restaurant Week, which I would highly recommend -- Halls' Restaurant Week menu did not have a ton of choices but was about as good a value as I have found for that event in Charleston.

High quality even during restaurant week. They don't skimp on quality, preparation or service for the restaurant week event, like some other downtown establishments do. Billy Hall personally meets and greet everyone in the place; this is such a nice touch. Brought my wife, son and mother in for a birthday dinner. We WILL be back!

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.

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!
