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: “The Refuge

I saw your write-up in Charleston Living magazine and would LOVE the recipe for the Shrimp Grit Cake. Any chance of getting it? My husband has been gone for 3 years and I haven't been able to come back to IOP, but hope to soon and now I have a new place to eat very close by. I wish I were there now.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

This is just another expensive version of Aaron's Deli. Tourists are their main clients, and are stuck with mediocre food and a very noisy atmosphere. With all the nice genuine professional restaurants in town, I wonder why they can stay in business.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

Halls is for dumb tourists only. All of the negative comments on this board are true. The food is average, the prices are high and the four owners are a pain in the butt. Please stay away from this horrible place.

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: “Gentry Bar & Room

Bring back Sermets, not sure what Gentry is even suppose to be, a whisky bar? restaurant? sports bar? venue for filming Southern Charm? No purpose to this place and the food is mediocre to say the least!

Re: “Halls Chophouse

Food is in line with other steakhouses in town- Oak, Grill 225, Ruth's Chris. The difference as some other reviewers have stated is its way overpriced for locals. $13 including tax for a crown and coke filled to the top with ice, and thats without the 20% tip. Now thats outrageous. That's just an example. Hall's is a tourist trap, they have little use for the locals other than the bar crowd, and they couldnt care less what we think as they pack the out of towners in. The atmosphere is lousy as the bar crowd downstairs drowns out your conversation in the dining room upstairs on any given night. Go once to say you've eaten there if you wish but smarter to save your money and go somewhere you can actually have an enjoyable evening out at and hear your dinner guests across the table from you. Dont worry the tourists will still be there. With the dining options now available in Charleston, why bother is the question.

Re: “Ashley Lanes

Agreed, I love Ashley Lanes, but now that it is the only game in town it's best to call ahead and make sure an alley is available.

Re: “Ashley Lanes

it's your typical bowling alley, and it's clean with good lanes and great food and beverages!

Great place for events, a walk and to see the harbor. Walk down Pitt Street Bridge for an even prettier view.

Re: “Hunley's Tavern

If you want to hang on a Saturday night and want good service.. don't go there. Hope the owner gets this.. I've been going there for a long while, this new bartender will not create business..

Re: “Brittlebank Park

Charleston Carifest has improved over the years and although the organizers struggle with sponsorship they do a good job and are happy to share the Caribbean Culture and Heritage celebration with the community. $10.00 is not enough for this event.

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: “Frothy Beard Brewing

I agree with RealBeerGuru. They had a small selection of their own beers on tap, and then had to fill up the rest with beer from other breweries. I've never been a huge fan of their beers, but they were OK. Pizza was also just OK. It also seemed to me like they had baked it earlier and re-heated it. It's a cool spot and nice facility, however.
