I was honestly worried about eating here after reading the reviews. The Hall's friendliness is a matter of taste. We went on a fairly quiet Sunday night, and I found the host to be very hospitable and very helpful. I would ask this of the extreme negative folks, would you rather your hosts at a restaurant be overly helpful or non-existent. I thought the server did extremely well with our group, he did a fine job of explaining the specials and explaining preparations of dishes (such as the "bacon steak"). The food was very good. Not great, but not good either. We had to send one steak back because it was underdone for one in the parties liking, but my steak was fine. The prices are on par with upper tier restaurants in this area, which in my opinion is overpriced anyway. Then again, I ask myself, how much business would they draw if they lowered prices by 5 dollars a plate, or 10 for the upper regions? Probably not much at all. It is a very nice place for a special night, one of the best in Charleston. I couldn't afford to eat there more than twice a year, but I wouldn't turn the place down. I'd have to eat at Oak now that Jeremiah Bacon is running the show in order to judge, I was not a fan when Brett McKee was over there. Hall's is very good, and I would eat there again.
Uh, bullshit, DocLandis. The Halls physically molest every person that walks in the door. And you don't know me.
If that's your thing, more power to you. I don't go out to eat to have strangers bear hug me, interrupt my conversation 8 times during a meal, and chased out the door for one more man hug. It's creepy.
You will find a series of highly negative reviews at the beginning of the review section, I know the person that set this up and he made it his mission to try to reflect poorly on this great establishment, putting a multitude of negative reviews up in succession in the hope that you wont take the time to notice all of the great reviews that follow. He is the kind of customer you hope you never have in your restaurant. I have been with him several times when he orders food, nearly finishes his dinner, then sends it back, refusing to have something else served, or to pay his bill. This night in particular, the host made a point of checking with him to see if his food was OK, as he had sent it back, unpaid 3 times in succession, and they were on to his game. He got caught, and didn't like it. I finally quit going to dinner with him.
Our personal experience with Hall's is one of complete enjoyment of the food, the staff, and the over-all experience. Come join us for one of our City's best dinner establishments.
too damn loud!
Tehn maybe you should go back to New York.
Whatever!!im bitter...bout what?? Lol its the truth.but ok.im done.its bullshit anyways
There is nothing worse than a bitter fired employee. I work at a plant near there and go there after I get off. I have always been treated with courtesy and respect. The girls there are nice and nice to look at. They have a good variety and private dances are reasonable(they run a 2 for 1 every hour or so). There drink prices are competitive with ANY bar in Charleston (not just strip clubs).Before taking some bitter ex dancers word for it go check the place out yourself would be my suggestion.
We visited on a busy Friday night and the restaurant was packed. Luckily for us there was space at the community table and we were seated right away. Seeing the crowd I figured service would be slow, but I was wrong.
Our server was very attentive and cocktails and waters were provided almost immediately. The food came out quickly as well.
The atmosphere was great, my only reason for removing a star is that I found the tuna and mahi tacos to be quite bland. Still the rest of the meal was pretty good and the service was outstanding.
We will be returning
I just had dinner at Halls for the first time recently and I admit, I was a bit weary after reading some negative reviews concerning the food and the overly-friendly atmosphere. I went to dinner with as much of an open mind as possible though, and I'm happy to say that I was very pleasantly surprised. I was half expecting the fake, intrusive and unnecessary niceties described in previous reviews, but nothing was over-the-top. Yes, the owner was very friendly, but certainly not to the point where it was weird. We had a wonderful meal--the service was great, the food was excellent, and the atmosphere was warm. I would definitely go there again. And with food that good, they can welcome me as if we're long-lost relatives, I won't care!
I always have a great time at this club, there is no other club in Charleston that can compete with it. The other ones have like 5 girls working but Jaguars always has 25-35 girls every time I come in, even for happy hour they have 10 girls which is 5 more then other clubs on Friday night!! Drinks are what you would expect your at a strip club so your gonna pay but they offer daily specials and if you stick with them your good.
i went to diamonds last week for the first time and saw two hott chicks on day shift and black girl named envy and a asian chick name lulu or whatever.really i only stayed for awhile to see the black chick cause she was very professional and talk with a good head on her shoulders. she was very sexy n knew how to get a man to come out his pocket..lol..but what i can say is that ..the only reason i came in the first place is cause i heard about her from some friends i work with and she is the only girl in there is worth coming to see on day shift now far as the asian chick cant dance but nice to talk to. but i think they can use more professional entertainers,instead of hiring any girl with a pretty face. i might go tonight if she is there.
Juanita Greenbergs is a jewel on King St. Its got a sign out front that invites a dog friendly atmosphere. The staff enures that the restaurant is kept spotless and sanitary, and food is delivered promptly to your table in virtually no time. Its a place where you can let your kids run around out back and play hide and seek, while you enjoy your favorite margarita in a relaxed, fun atmosphere. The patio area smells of Carolina Jasmine, as it is growing on the walls around the outdoor seating. I would recommend that anyone and everyone come enjoy this place. Also every Wednesday night one of the best female vocalists in town performs free to anyone who will listen, So come out and see Jordan Igoe and Friends. It will change your life. If you dont like the atmosphere clearly stated on the chalkboard out front, then go to McDonald's...lookin at you, Beth.
Great place to enjoy a burger and a beer or mixed drink and watch the Stono River boat traffic. Good live music and nice cool breeze. Very friendly folks!
Juanita Greenberg's Nacho Royale was an experience I wish I had walked out on.
Our table at the King street location was not just dirty, it was filthy. There were at least 3 dogs in the restaurant. Children were running around and playing hid and seek with vacant tables. Obviously the children should be corrected by the parents, but the restaurant manager should be able to instruct its patrons to reign their children in.
Our server was negligent at best. Perhaps ADD? With the college crowd there, her thoughts were less on taking my order for my children and myself and more on adjusting her short shorts and posing for the frat boys. I think in the process she forgot to put our order in, b/c the food took a huge amount of time for a round of appetizers and a child's meal. We were seated outside and could smell garbage and urine smells. Why I sat through until the food came out, is obvious, I had a hungry family to feed and was not that familiar with the options in the immediate area. My daughter with leg braces can only walk so far at times. I am mad at my dumb luck for wandering into a dirty, dirty, restaurant that honestly didn't care if I was there or not.
Will NOT be back, will never suggest to anyone.. And it is firmly on my top 3 WORST in Charleston. Avoid.
The wings and boneless wings are really good. Go to the bar not the bar area, children running through the isles constantly with no parental control. Its more of a FAMILY RESTARAUNT then a so called sports bar. If want to hear children while your trying to watch your favorite team play then you might as well stay home.
Too bad you can't put zero stars. I split a shrimp & chorizo quesadilla with a friend. We got a slimy grilled cheese sandwiched by cardboard-baked tortillas for $9. No shrimp & no chorizo. Since the waitress brought the paid check back in cash (bill was $26.84) and didn't bother to return our change (guess she really needed that 16 cents) she got to keep that change + 2 bucks for her tip. I get it now, you go there to see people and be seen. They only serve food so it will support their license to serve over-priced liquor. bleh
I've been to this place 3-4 times in the last year. The food is actually pretty decent, but the atmosphere and service not so much. We go in there for dinner during the week when it does not seem to be very busy. The acoustics are terrible and the food is always slow to come out. I would go there more often for the food, but I just get annoyed with the lack luster service and too laid back attitude from the staff.
The best restaurant on Seabrook Island. Lucy's has great food, great bar and a great waitstaff. The only negative I'd have with the place is it tends to get loud when it's busy.
The Saturday afternoon Band ( 4 to 7) is very entertaining. The Crowd is energetic and engaging so it makes for a fun place to enjoy a few drinks!! Amanda and her crew provide good service in a very hectic environment. I highly recommend you give this place a try!!
They have a new Chef and now that the Owner is down to one the food is AMAZING and the service is excellent. The new Chef mixes it up with new and creative dishes and appetizers, and the portions are huge! Highly recommend the bacon wrapped scallops, the southwestern eggrolls, and the GATOR bites. Their friend clams are the best I have had since eating them in Maine. Highly recommend this restaurant and its food!
