This place turns into your typical loud, expensive "club" on saturday nights. No thanks
I have read thru many of the comments and find them rather suspicious. The mean spirited comments smack of being posted by disgruntled former employees or jealous competitors since the focus of the complaints are directed at the owners/hosts, not the food.I am a local and have eaten at Halls many times, for both business and family events. I do agree that the prices are high, but I have never walked away disappointed. The food and service have always been excellent. Depending on where you are seated, it can be a little noisy. I prefer the upstairs dining areas since they are more amenable to conversation.
I strongly disagree with the comments that state that locals stay away from Hall's. I live here and have never heard a single negative comment about the owners or the food. Since when is it "creepy" for a business owner to remember your name or to inquire if you were satisfied with your purchase? Charleston is a small town and part of its charm is that local businesses DO remember who you are. I have out-of-town friends who look forward to eating at Hall's and the hosts even remember their names. The food is amazing--try any of the steaks, but the tuna and salmon are wonderful, as well as the corn and brussels sprouts.
Great light fare. Fabulous wines . Friendly folks that hold many fundraisers for those
In the community .
Is this EVERY Saturday, or only when they have a band playing. Or do they have bands? I can't imagine a cover fee just to eat or drink there. I usually go to the Chas. Grill in Northwoods. Can someone clarify this one?
My favorite place in Charleston. Seriously hands down awesome tacos and great margaritas.
Love this place!!
This place on a Saturday is ridiculous. They charge 5$ cover fee to have to wait at the bar and get served like 20 mins later. Who does this 5$ go to? That stuck up little club promoter who thinks his stuff doesn't stink. GET RID OF THAT GUY!!! I will take my business elsewhere.
After spending a good deal of time and money at this restaurant, Halls finally showed us their true colors. Dont be fooled by their fake charm like we did. They need a security doorman at the front to handle the drunk unruly patrons who insult and fall over other customers. I felt like i was at a Biker Bar. The Halls and their staff are ineffective and inexperienced to deal with this. I have been to numerous steakhouses over the last 25 years and this would never occur there . Do yourself a favor, go to Oak and be treated properly and professionaly everytime, in addition to getting a much better quality meal.
Thanks for this amazing article. I hope you guys keep on giving us information like this.
Clipping Path service
I have to say, I don't know what the big deal is with this place. The service was ok but everyone on the waitstaff looked hungover; granted, we went for Sunday brunch so I suppose that's understandable. Food was also just ok, really nothing to write home about but nothing was outright bad. The most egregious part of our experience was the lack of cleanliness in the bar area. There are stains on the drop-ceiling tiles, duct tape on the chairs, grease on the bar, dust in the air vents, etc. This place would greatly benefit from a thorough cleaning and a fresh coat of lighter paint; the dark green interior makes the place feel grimier than it is.
Some of my steak tasted like it was bad. Manager never offered anything else or even apologized- just said it could be some propane from the gas grill. Like that's OK. Practically accused me of trying to weasel a free meal- which I never suggested, just reported the bad taste. Spend your money somewhere with better food, where your business will be appreciated. Embarrassed to be a local today!
This place is awesome! I will go back again and again and again. And the mac n cheese is to die for! I give it 10 stars and its only 5 so you do the math. AMAZING
We were visiting Charleston so I took my boyfriend there for Father's Day. I'm from Charleston and it is one of my favorite spot. It was his first time there but he enjoyed everything. We both had the seafood platter and YES the scallops were the best. We look forward to visiting again soon with other family and friends.
The service was really poor...as if they were all new. Two of our entries were wrong. We were told to wait about 30 minutes to be seated inside. After 30 minutes we were called and told we had to eat outside anyway. The quality of the food was no better than a fast food restaurant. If we would have been told we had to sit outside in the beginning we wouldn't have waited. Don't waste your time going here. The photos on their web site were obviously photoshopped as well.
I've eaten at Green Goat five times now for brunch or supper ,alone and with the whole family, and it has been consistently delicious.
Always a great experience - friendly staff and the best food!
A bunch of friends and I ate there last night. It was a really bad dining experience. We entered at 845p. We left at 1215a. Dinner took 2:10 to come out. The waitress never once came over and asked us how we were doing, or offered us drinks. So overpriced. The bathrooms were filthy, ugh.
Posting again due to how appalled I am. I cannot reiterate enough that this place is dangerous. I've never once filed a lawsuit... Until today. When my wife and I go out, we assume we'll be treated kindly and with respect by any establishment. This place acted as though we were lucky to be there giving them out hard-earned money. I wish I could post pictures of the bodily damage their bouncers caused. Montreaux's does not need to be in business, and I highly encourage anyone reading this to not patron this establishment. The more I read about this place, the more I see this isn't a one-time occurrence. I wish I had known this prior to walking in last night.
This place is dangerous. I'm referring to the staff mainly. I'm not from Summerville, nor have I ever visited this establishment. I was thrown to the curb by bouncers bc a bartender told them to - I sipped an abandoned drink and actually tried to pay for it. I've never been tossed out of a bar, not do I have a history of unruly behavior. Not only was I tossed to the curb, I was tossed multiple times up and down the curb for pleading my case, which eventually led to a trip to the hospital - concussion and severe lacerations. A large black bouncer told me I was lucky he didn't get me because he would have beat the shit out of me. My phone and clothing were both destroyed as a result. I am filing a lawsuit against the place. I'm subpoenaing the video footage and also filing criminal charges. I was not intoxicated, nor was I causing any problems. The uneducated and quick-tempered staff on this place is going to get it shut down due to their actions and. DONT GO HERE...EVER!!!!!
Ordered take out wings last night from Wings and they had a problem with their credit card processing system. So they just kept swiping my card and eventually gave up and wrote up a manual slip. Lo and behold the next morning I had been charged 5 TIMES on my credit card. Definitely won't be using a credit card if I ever go there again! Now I have a huge mess to straighten out with them and my bank.
