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: “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 bar in town! Also, an award winning, incredible restaurant downstairs! Great service, great active owner, great staff & management, and an extremely talented Chef who pours his heart into his food! If you haven't been, I suggest you go! Now! :)

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: “Halls Chophouse

I live in NYC and here and have to tell you this place has the best service I have seen in a steak house. The food is great and the owner and his two sons make sure that everything is taken care of. I go their at least once a week when Im in Charleston, its almost impossible to get a reservation after 8PM and the place is packed every night. This is my favorite place in town.

Re: “Fiery Ron's Home Team BBQ

Was impressed that the Big Bill Morganfield show started at 10:01 pm as advertised. BBQ fans had paid $60 to sample pig-pickin' competition food and booze from 6 - 9pm so the place was packed but I found a seat at the bar. That HAS to be the longest bar in town! Staff seemed well-trained and service was quick. Welcome addition to North Morrison area. I'll be posting photos on my blog at http://chuckography.blogspot.com.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

I've always had a wonderful experience at Hall's Chophouse, the food being very tasty & to my satisfaction. The Gospel Sunday Brunch is just perfect, admittedly the experience is much better when seated downstairs where the Plantation Singers are situated but the atmosphere & music travels well. The staff have always been so friendly, not just Mr Hall but all the servers we had. We have visitors coming into town & this is definitely top of the list to show off. The She-Crab soup in particular was exquisite as was their grits. The triple juice mimosa was simply divine!

Re: “Moe's Crosstown Tavern

I had brunch for the first time at Moe's last weekend. By far one of the best I've had in Charleston! Fantastic food, little to no wait time because we got a seat at the bar, and no pretentious prices. Loved it and I'm a brunch snob.
