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

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

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: “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: “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: “UPDATE: 70+ Charleston restaurants have signed on to the Strawless Summer Challenge

Use paper straws! There really is such a thing!!! I used them when I was a kid. They made them until the 1960's when they were replaced by plastic straws.

Re: “Strawless Summer challenges Charleston bars and restaurants to give up plastic straws

What's wrong with paper straws?? I used those all the time when I was a kid! They are biodegradable.
They made paper straws up until the Sixties when they were replaced by plastic straws.

Re: “Why are white men turning on women?

you worry about being able to raise them to be good men- because you cannot know how. your worries are justified. only a good man can raise a good man. or the cruelties of a world filled with evil can provoke a man to change it. but a woman can never raise a boy to be a good man. she can only raise a boy to be a good boy.

Re: “Charleston's printed accolades may be doing more harm than good

Charleston's printed accolades are not doing more harm than good. Yes, our infrastructure is suffering and it has been for a long time. Luckily the gas tax passed and road projects will start churning in the next few years. Like the writer states, the Rust Belt cities have lost key industries and now those cities are noticeably shrinking. Therefore, I would think it would be wise to not shew away tourists as tourism is a key industry of Charleston. Charleston is a wonderful place that is full of activities and entertainment. We should be happy that we live in a place that is on the rise, unlike the rust belt.

@NewslessCourier

That's because 526 is a solution for the terrible traffic through the Savannah/Folly/Maybank corridor. The land it is cutting through is already developed or already planned to be developed.

Re: “The Agenda: Cruise ships hit downtown cap; State to discuss I-526; Graham reacts to McCain cancer diagnosis

Uhh...Mr. Santos....
The underlying reason for the limit on docking is not due to a lack of dock availability. It is to keep the city from being more overrun with tourists than it currently is.
Somehow this plan is either completely tone-deaf to the will of the city or is yet another end run to circumvent regulations which have previously been negotiated and accepted as a reasonable compromise for all residents of Charleston.
Regardless of the unknown motivations and interests of Mr. Santos, it seeks to circumvent the efforts of residents to maintain the quality of life in our city.

Given recent events, I'm not surprised. Glad he now knows what that noise symbolism feels like. Maybe he can help solve this crap we've dealt with for centuries

Re: “Jury sides with family of CofC grad Sarah Jones in wrongful death lawsuit

Let me get this straight. A film crew, knowingly, trespassed onto railroad property to shoot a movie. They filmed on a live railroad and believe it's the railroad company's fault for the killing? It would take a train at least a mile to stop at that speed and they should stop because some people want to shoot a movie? Screw that. Get the heck out of the way.

Reaching the (voluntary) cap (of 104 per year) means that there are no more open slots available for the remainder of the year because they are all booked - apparently thru 2018. Booked ships will continue to dock.

Re: “Charleston's printed accolades may be doing more harm than good

Charleston and the area in general are suffering from a lack of infrastructure and planning, that was ignored for the last 40 years or so in favor of more glamorous projects like the Guillard, Aquarium, and others.
