Re: “Halls Chophouse

My wife and I live in the Charleston area and have eaten at halls numerous times. We love it. The steaks are to die for. We often go on the spur of the moment and eat at the bar. The Halls do sometimes politely ask how you are enjoying your experience, something any good restaurant will do. It is pricey, but it tracks with what other fine steak houses charge for top notch beef. Pay no attention to the low ratings - the people who are posting them are clearly insane.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

Hall's is top notch across the board; frankly, I think that these reviews shooting the place down are pretty mean-spirited. The Hall family is a class act, and I have very good memories of their kindness to me and my wife and young daughter. Good people bringing top notch food to Charleston.

But hey, haters are gonna hate...

Re: “Halls Chophouse

It should be pretty clear to anyone reading this thread of comments and "Linda" and, most likely a few friends she has recruited, are on a personal mission to smear Halls Chophouse and the Halls themselves.

My wife and I have been to Halls 6 or 7 times. We've been to some of the best steak houses in the Country (NYC, Dallas, Atlanta, etc) and Halls is one of the best. The steaks are fantastic, on of the best caesar salads anywhere, and a world class wine list. Perhaps Billy can be friendly to a fault, but you have to appreciate the families commitment to this restaurant and their patrons. They are always there and try to get to know people. The bar downstairs is a lively scene, so its not the most quite restaurant in town. So, if you are looking for a very quite dining experience where you don't see or here from the owners, perhaps you should try another Charleston steakhouse, Penninsula Grill is fabulous.

Read reviews on Open Table and Trip Advisor if you want to see some honest reviews of Halls.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

I don't know where the other people on this thread have been eating but I have never had a bad meal, bad service or experience at Hall's. Maybe they aren't used to knowledgeable servers who are attentive without being intrusive (anywhere else mail you a thank you note afterwards?), or owners who greet and try to take care of their guests like it was their home (3 deep at the bar but Billy finds me a barstool). Walked in on a average Sat night & we were seated within 5 mins at the community table. I'm no one special other than I appreciate the best steak Ive ever tasted, fantastic side dishes (lobster mac & the chopped salad!) & the first class service.It gets loud but there's nowhere that doesn't anymore as people seem to have forgotten their inside voices. Yes, it's pricey but we've never left feeling we paid too much for the quality we received. Go to Ruths Chris if you don't like it and free up a table for those who appreciate this gem.

Re: “Crave Kitchen & Cocktails

My new go-to brunch place in Charleston. Shrimp with grits and chorizo sausage is great. The bacon Bloody Mary will not disappoint. Great casual outdoor seating.

Re: “Page's Okra Grill

One of the best sandwiches I've ever had. Charleston or elsewhere.

The PBT is amazing. It's got pimiento cheese, fried green tomatoes, apple-wood smoked bacon on Texas toast. Delicious.

I agree with the other reviews that it can be busy at times, I usually avoid the crowds and go a little later at night once the dinner rush is over. It means eating later, but also better service and shorter waits. Highly recommend.

Also, the BBQ cheese fries are great to snack on!

Re: “Halls Chophouse

If you cant get a table, eat at the bar. The bartenders are amazing and will keep you entertained and they'll offer amazing insight on the menu. Food is amazing! Family style apps are fantastic! A+

Best wings, best brisket, friendly staff, beware the "Liquid Marijuana!" Everything was going pretty good until I greedily drank 3 after being told only 2...

Re: “Magnolias

Went for lunch and LOVED the crab cake entree! Just a great balance between the risotto and collards. Would definitely return just for that! Our server was very friendly and helpful too!

Re: “TBonz Gill & Grill

Management has it together. Greats you at the door, checks on you, listens. Really a great experience here. I was so surprised to see the level of attention the management and servers have here. Food was very good and good prices. Highly recommend.

Re: “Charleston Beer Works

The new location is great. Having an outdoor patio to go to out to is great for our running group that meets up there. All the other reviews are out dated and should be removed since they are about it's previous location.

Re: “Sermet's Southernterranean Cuisine-Bar

Great food! Ate there for the first time last week and absolutely loved everything about it. Our waitress was attentive and just as awesome as our food! Definitely will return often. Goal is to try everything on the menu - something yummy each visit!

Re: “Amalfi's Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria

We went to Amalfi's last night.. it was the best food I have ever had the pleasure of eating! The bread comes to the table with a plate of oil and herbs for dipping -- the bread is heavy and filling and tastes so, so good! I got the tomato soup and fettuccine alfredo. The tomato soup was the best I have ever had. It was so creamy and had pieces of tomato in it and just burst with flavor. The fettuccine was so soft and creamy and the best pasta ever. My husband had tortellini, which I tasted, and am not usually a fan of, but again.. Amalfi's did not disappoint!

The vibe was lovely as well as it felt rather intimate/romantic and of course italian. We probably would never have found this place if we hadn't been actively looking for local cuisine in Mount Pleasant and I would agree with the previous reviewer who called it a "hidden gem". I would recommend to anyone who wishes to have a lovely italian meal or a nice date night.

Also, I did want to point out -- it was not overly expensive and actually quite affordable .. for the two of us (no wine or dessert) it was in the $20 range before tax to give you an idea as I understand different people have different understandings of what "affordable" is. Another side note as well.. this was incredibly filling. We would have tried a dessert otherwise.. Will have to try for that next time =)

Re: “Skoogie's

I LOVE Skoogies and we go there on a regular basis, driving all the way from Goose Creek. I know their Chicago style hot dog seems to be quite popular, but my personal favorite is the polish dog with Chili and Mustard (i love the chili!) and my husband gets the roast beef melt. Also, the fries are great too.. and the seasoning ... now I want Skoogies lol.
