Lunch With Your Best Friend at Halls Chophouse

In partnership with Santee Cooper County
Written by Jane Powell, Executive Director, Santee Cooper County

Last week I had a wonderful experience having lunch at Halls Chophouse in Summerville with my daughter, who happens to be my best friend. Locals know that Halls is known in South Carolina for exceptional good service and southern hospitality, and to die for delicious food. What people may not realize is that even non-protein picky eaters (a.k.a. my daughter) have delicious options to choose from off the menu.

Rev. War Cannon Returns

As we observe the 243rd year of our nation’s independence this month, a rare relic from the American Revolution is back home in Berkeley County. A British naval cannon, recovered by scuba divers from the Cooper River in the 1980s, returned July 9 to the Berkeley County Museum and Heritage Center and is again on public display. The museum is an attraction at Old Santee Canal Park. Conservators at the Warren Lasch Conservation Center in North Charleston recently completed the cannon’s nearly two-year restoration. The center is part of Clemson University’s Restoration Institute.
