Low Country

Slightly North of Broad is a Lowcountry bistro that brings together an abundance of local ingredients and thoughtful, expert presentation with a friendly, contagious energy. Here the dining room is a natural extension of the kitchen, a place where culinary skill, a clever, considered wine program, warm service, and conversations meld together. Our local farmers, fishermen and producers are as integral to the food we make as they are to our place in this community.

Desert of chocolate bread pudding with ice cream and the creme brûlée. Yay. I will always have dinner here when I am in town.

He also takes an interest in making sure your evening is memorable. Didn't have reservations but decided to take a chance for a communal or high top table for 4 of us in CHS for a girl's weekend from JAX. It took some time but eventually had 4 seats on the end of the communal table. Overall everything we ordered was delicious but what stood out was the 16oz Rib-Eye and a must is the creamed corn skillet Picking your seat will depend on the desired atmosphere: Downstairs is two bar areas; one has music and tends to be more energetic, the other is still a bar setting without music but a great place to dine, drink and watch whatever sport is showing on the Tube. Upstairs is an array of dinning rooms, a quieter setting. The other three in the party were hesitant since we didn't have reservations but ended up saying this was the best place we dinned in CHS. FYI: Tables can be reserved in either bar area too, if not certain seating in the bars is first come first serve. Definitely will drive up from JAX to dine at Hall's again.

They had a tamale appetizer special that was excellent as well. Cons were that it was a little slow. Also our server kept trying to push and sell specials, apps, deserts, and more drinks on us to the point it became slightly irritating. “We’re good!”

Once it was mentioned to our server we never had to ask if anything was dairy free or safe when it arrived to the table. Kelsea coordinates with the kitchen and told us what changes edits were made. It was wonderful!!! And, everything was delicious. We also appreciated that the we’re participating in “No Straw Summer”!

It seemed to take a while for our server to come by. Compared to the male server taking care of other diners, our server was just average. The shrimp and grits is superb. My husband ordered the fresh sword fish special. It was great, too. The cold refreshing gazpacho was the best I’ve ever had.

Instead Halibut. Very good. Scallops very good. We were there on Saturday night, June 23. It was busy. Nice place. I would go again.
