Hall Management Group (HMG) on Wednesday opened their fourth Halls Chophouse in Nexton Square over in Summerville. Their flagship location at 434 King Street in downtown Charleston, is one of the most award-winning steakhouses in the country earning AAA’s Four-Diamond award, 4th Place on TripAdvisor’s national restaurant list, and named one of the “44 Best Restaurants in America” by Business Insider magazine.
Their newest restaurant, at 300 Nexton Square Drive, is just off 17A, Main Street, at Brighton Park Boulevard. The interior design replicates the King Street restaurant with a 16-seat bar on the left and a grand, blue-carpeted staircase to the second-floor dining on the right. The walls are filled with original paintings and sculpture from Halls collection of Southeastern Wildlife Exposition (SEWE) art.
There is seating for 200 guests in the main dining areas. Plus, there is an outdoor covered patio that seats up to 60 guests, complete with a two-story wood-burning fireplace and flat-screen TV’s. There’s an additional bar on the second floor and two special event rooms, the Ryland and Redford Rooms, that can accommodate from 10 to 50 guests.
Halls Chophouse Nexton will open every day at 4 pm for cocktails with dinner service beginning at 5 pm with live music. In the next few weeks, HMG plans to introduce lunch service, Monday to Saturday from 11 am to 2 pm, and Sunday Brunch from 10 am to 2 pm.
“We’re so proud to be in the Nexton/Summerville community and be part of the fabric in this vibrant, new, developing area," proprietor Tommy Hall said. “It’s a great opportunity for our brand to grow and, more importantly, to internally grow career opportunities for our team members.
“We will work very hard to provide the same outstanding hospitality and excellent dining experience that our customers have come to expect from Halls since 2008. Like our Charleston restaurant, we want the Nexton Steakhouse, to be that special place where families and groups come to celebrate their special occasions.”
The Nexton culinary team will be directed by Executive Chef Daniel Kane, who has been with HMG for over seven years. The menu will feature Allen Brothers hand-selected and custom-cut meats flown in from Chicago.
