Even in a city like Charleston with dizzying choices when it comes to amazing food and bars, Halls Chophouse stands out as not only the place to go, but also the place to be.
Just the first ten feet in the door is an experience in itself. Beautiful hostesses and hosts smile and welcome you, and least one member of the Hall family will either shake your hand, or if you’re really lucky, throw you a hug and a kiss on the cheek. You’ll feel like they’ve been waiting for your arrival all day and are now thrilled that you’ve made it.
The bar can be a place where you have a drink while you wait for your coveted table, or, as is often the case nightly, a destination in its own right. You won’t be on your barstool more than thirty seconds before someone is by your side, either remembering what you ordered last or ready to fetch your heart’s desire. Cocktails in Charleston will usually set you back between $10-$20, but your $17 cocktail at Halls is the equivalent of three of theirs, we promise. There is no skimping on the quality or quantity of liquor behind that bar. There is live music nightly, and fun music played in between sets has been known to get patrons up on their feet dancing. The atmosphere is special at Halls; the energy is humming and the crowd is well-dressed, well-connected, and well-to-do. The bar menu is fantastic, but the staff is also happy to serve up a full-course meal to their guests anywhere they are seated.
The full menu is classic steakhouse with fine southern staples, sustainable seafood, vegetarian and vegan options, and fantastic desserts. Halls boasts an extensive, award winning wine list. You will not leave here hungry, and the bustling, knowledgeable, friendly servers will be at your beck and call the entire time you’re inside.
Executive Chef Matthew Niessner runs the kitchen operation at Hall’s Chophouse. Matthew was the Executive Chef at the grand Sanctuary Hotel on Kiawah Island prior to coming onboard at Hall's. He runs a fine tuned operation and you will experience some of the best of the best as Matthew learned his craft from some of the finest restaurants such as “The Brass Elephant in Baltimore, “Tapas Pepin and the Princess Resort” in Scottsdale, Arizona
If you’re hungry on a Sunday morning, make sure you hit their Gospel Brunch; with a live choir singing hand-clapping songs of praise, it will be like going to church twice. Make a reservation well in advance if you want to get a table; this place is wildly popular with locals and visitors alike. When you go, make sure you keep your eyes peeled for musical, political, sports, and entertainment celebrities. This is where they all end up when they visit Charleston, and for good reason.
The bar at Halls is open nightly until 2am, and the kitchen serves until midnight Friday and Saturday and until 11pm Sunday through Thursday.
We’ll see you there!
Hall’s Chophouse is located at 434 King Street in Downtown.
