The staff is amazing - very accommodating, talkative, willing to answer questions, just great. But, if you've ever been to Hall's Chophouse in Charleston, SC, you'll be disappointed. It's very much a similar concept to Hall's, but it falls short. I hate to compare a...More

I have been several times and it never disappoints. The food is always top notch, as is the service. They have generous pours several times a year, which is also a lot of fun.
