Last night we had a company dinner at Hall's Chophouse. The best steakhouse in Charleston. For anyone who has not been there and those planning to visit Charleston, eating there is a MUST! There were 11 of us so I got to taste what everyone else ordered and all was delicious. Hall's has quickly grown to be the favorite of locals. When you walk through the doors you are welcomed by a smooth voice playing the piano and the hospitality of the entire Hall family. Even though they meet and greet hundreds everyday, they make you feel like an old friend genuinely delighted to have you come for dinner. Once seated, we were presented with the specials, Hall's cuts of highest quality beef. The variety ordered by my group included the rib eye aged for 45 days, petite filet oscar style, filet mignon with a horseradish cream sauce, roasted chicken, and filet of rib eye. For Appetizers we had a seafood platter that included fresh oysters, rock shrimp, and crab legs. Choosing a salad is just as exciting as the beef. I had an amazing roasted beet salad with apples and a warm brie dressing. It was perfectly delicious. Others order the Hall's chop salad and the wedge salad which they devoured in delight. Fried green tomatoes and lump crab cakes were also enjoyed. Our steaks were served perfectly cooked and the family style sides were the perfect compliment; creamy mac and cheese, huge sweet potato fries, sweet and sour collards (amazing, unlike any you have ever tasted), and local butter beans. For dessert we had a praline cup filled with key lime ice cream, a peach and blueberry cobbler topped with vanilla bean ice cream, soft chocolate fudge with berry compote and fresh whipped cream, banana spilt, and vanilla bean creme brulee. They perfect ending to a perfect meal. That was not my first time at Hall's and it definitely won't be my last.
