Re: “Halls Chophouse

Seems like someone in town has organized a campaign to attack Hall's on this board, (Charleston is still a very small town-not surprised at this). I've been there four times and found both the service and the food to be excellent. Special requests were handled were handled with alacrity. Found the family members to be very nice. Would definitely go again.

Re: “Citadel Mall

This mall has the only IMAX in the Charleston area. It also has the largest Belk & Dillard's locations in Charleston. Centrally located, easily accessible and convenient to all areas of Charleston.

Re: “Manny's Neighborhood Grille

Manny's Mediterranean Cafe on George St has the best Gyros I have had in years - fresh and delicious - a must. Great service and a very comfortable experience - can't wait to go back for more

Re: “Halls Chophouse

The five of us dined upstairs for Father's Day and we couldn't have had a better prepared, more flavorful meal. The service was attentive without being annoying. 3 of us are vegetarians and loved the scrumptious offerings at this 'steak; restaurant. Great cocktails and an extensive wine list rounded out the experience. If I had to make one complaint, it would be that the desserts were massive and we could have shared and would have appreciated that suggestion from our server. In a town full of amazing restaurants, this will be a repeat.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

Went to Hall's recently with a party of six and I must admit, everyone had a great meal. Don't quite understand all the negative comments. One of the owners came by once to say hi but other than that no harassment like you read in most of the reviews. They are a little pricey, but anyone would no this with a little research..definitely would go back again.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

Wow. These reviews are terrible. I have eaten at Halls over 25 times and have NEVER had a bad meal and have NEVER had bad service. The owners seem to really care about the end product and are very nice. All of my friends agree. This is the GO TO place in Charleston for steak. Khai Mahala

Re: “Smokey's Place Sports Bar and Grill

Best burger in town. Don't know what they are talking about in terms of right wing antics. I have been there a thousand times and never heard one discussion. Plus the owner is not a guy (I don't think), the wait staff is friendly, and the food is set at a very good price for the portions you get (I can never finish). Pretty funny reading the comments on the right wing stuff, as long shoremen go there all the time. You can smoke in there which is probably a turn-off for most, but there is always take-out!

Re: “How Art Thou Jazz Lounge and Tapas Bar

Cade Style was awesome! Blues, jazz, Motown, our feet were tappin' to the music while we joined in singing to old familiar songs. Great performance.

Re: “Seanachai Social Club

What a great local! So happy that there is a place on Johns Island to enjoy an after-work beer in a friendly pub. Bartender and owner Gerry is a gem, treats his customers as friends, and is a craftsman with the cocktails, too. Hard to drive past it on your way home without stopping for a pint!

Re: “Hanahan's Neighborhood Pub

Apparently this is the best kept secrect in Hanahan/North Charleston. From the road it looks like a dive bar/restaurant but inside it's not at all. A buddy of mine told me I should go in there on a Wednesday and try their steak special (10oz. for $8.95 with salad, french fries or baked potato). This may be the best deal going in town and the sorrounding area! You definitely won't be dissappointed and the waitstaff was great!

Re: “Castaways Grille

I really wish I lived closer to Castaway's because it is such a chill, spacious bar for happy hour or to grab a bite. They have the usual pub fare but fancy it up with pasta dishes and a pork chop entree. I always make sure to go once a month on the Tuesday when they have a stand up comedy night. I'm usually not a big fan of stand up, especially when I'm not familiar with the comedians because I hate when I have to force myself to awkwardly laugh, but I've been three times and they've never disappointed! It doesn't hurt that they have super cheap beer and a $2 vodka special. I'd highly recommend!!

Re: “EVO

Let me start by saying I am rather disgusted by the fact that someone has enough hatred for EVO to "dislike" any positive review or comment on here. Really? What did this restaurant do to you? I won't let that affect my review of what I consider the best pizza in Charleston.
Why is this the best pizza in Charleston? Why does my opinion count? Actually, pizza taste is more subjective than any other food out there. It seems that some people think the best pizza comes from NY. Other people only like the thick Chicago style deep dish pies. I can appreciate all styles of pizza, and I used to make them as a part time job as a teenager. However, my true pizza purist side really appeared while living in Italy for 3 months (and during multiple return trips). While I lived in a little suburb of Torino called Venaria Realle, I learned that most popular pizza in Italy was Pizza Napoletana, which originated from Naples. This style had thin crust with light toppings, and was cooked in a wood fired oven. The wood fire always added a wonderful touch of smoke to the crust, while providing a high heat level to crisp things up. When you ordered a Pizza Margherita, you would get an 8" pie with a light covering of sauce, frest cut tomatoes, house made mozzarella cheese (I preferred to opt for Mozzarella di Buffalo), and just the lightest touch of seasoning from a couple basil leaves. This was pizza perfection to me. I tried this pizza from many places during my stays, and it was always delicious.
Now that I live in Charleston, I often miss this Napoletano pizza experience. Then, I discovered EVO. Extra Virgin Oven (EVO) takes pride in producing the most accurate representation of true Italian pizza you will find in this part of the country. They offer the same fresh ingredients and even feature a true wood fired pizza oven. The crust is always cooked to a perfect crisp level, and they even seem to have the dough chemistry worked out to match EU. To add some American spice to the traditional dish, they offer something called a Pork Trifecta. Sweet Jeebus, the Trifecta is delicious. I am still an American, and I love bacon. The PT gives you the bacon fix you needed, along with some house made sausage and pepperoni. I think the combination of tradition with an American pork lover's wet dream make this the best pie in CHS.
Aside from the orgasmic talk about the pizza, EVO also delivers on beer selection and service. I have never had an issue with the waitresses, as they are quick to take orders and deliver food. The craft beer selection had slacked off for a while, but seems back to normal. I also have enjoyed the breads I have tried from their bakery.
While there may be many NY pizza purists on Citypaper, if you love fresh ingredients, you really need to try EVO for yourself. I don't expect it to be #1 on everyone's list, but I would hope the flavor might convince you that these guys know what they are doing. All this pizza talk is making me hungry! Cheers!
