Alesia and I are taking advantage of the great prices and dining opportunities offered during Charleston Restaurant Week. First stop on a rainy (on and off) Friday night was Halls Chop House.
We'd been to Halls once before when it opened a few years ago at 434 King St. The ambiance, decor, food and service are excellent. Prices are high though with steak and prime ribs dishes ranging from $36 (8 oz. petite cut) up to $85 (34 oz. Long Bone Tomahawk Rib Eye- Got to try that some day-- OK, probably not!)
We both had the steak and it was fabulous! Quite filling too, after the bread and soup. Dessert is part of the deal too! I had the Southern Biscuit Strawberry Shortcake.
The shortcake was not short on flavor- delicious! And Alesia enjoyed her Chocolate Pate.
We also had a very nice wait staff. The main one was a CofC graduate from 2008. She took this picture of us. And was thoughtful enough to turn up the lights so we could actually be seen.
Charleston Restaurant Week runs Sept. 5-16. Check this website for participating restaurant. There are something like 140 that are involved with prices ranging from $20 to $40. Click here to see the list.
Make your reservations ASAP because many restaurants are filling up fast.
