Steak
A restaurant that triumphs in taste over trend, Hal's is not the typical highbrow restaurant so often equated with food of this quality. It is a place of white table cloths, flowers, warm brick, & candlelight.

The food and service is pretty good, but the restaurant itself could use a little revamping. Feels very old school for the price of the food.

I’ve had steaks at almost every “Best Steakhouse” in every major city in America. This was the BEST OF THE BEST! The filet is perfect, the sides are great, the ambiance leaves a little to be desired and the FOH staff could do a little better.

The FOOD AND WAIT staff are terrific!

Wow, wow, wow!!! The food was excellent, as always, five stars. In fact, everything about our experience except the service was five stars. Why not the service? Because I have to give the service ten stars!! Our server Chaz was, without a doubt, the best server we have ever had. It was a very special occasion for us, and Chaz made the occasion all the more special. He treated us as if we were guests in his own home. Sometimes you leave a restaurant and think you will go back because the food was so good, but in this instance we said we would come back again just to have Chaz as our server. Thank you Chaz for making our special night all the more special. If you are thinking of going to Hal's, do yourself a favor and ask for Chaz. You will be very happy you did

The staff and food are always excellent. A great place for a date, birthday, anniversary or just sit at the bar and have a great steak. I've been going to Hals for 15+ years and can't wait to go back as soon as possible.

My mother in law was in town so my husband and I took her to Hal’s on her last night. The food was outstanding as always. I wish they wouldn’t allow smoking though, since someone was smoking cigars all evening.While it adds to the old world ambiance, I just don’t like the smell and get a headache from it. We will definitely be back though.

Hal’s is and always will be my go-to spot for a business meal to impress a client or treat my wife. I’ve been eating there for nearly 15 years and (still) have never had a bad meal/experience.

Best steak and service in the south, they are a little noise but it does have bar so that is to be excepted. This was our 2nd trip for our anniversary dinner and will be as long as they are open. I highly recommend them for anything.

Filet au Poive was outstanding - perfectly cooked and super tender. Really enjoyed the crispy brussel sprouts and chargrilled oysters as well. Service was top notch. I've been wanting to try out Hal's for some time, and it didn't disappoint. Hal's has a lot of dining space and keeps packing diners in, which explains its longevity.

Hals is my favorite steakhouse ever. The steaks here are better than anywhere else I have ever been nationally and internationally. The ambiance is makes this place a “must see” I love people watching, I love the live music and most of all the incredible service I get when I can clearly see the place is slammed. Those employees work harder than I have seen in a long time. The wait is well worth the experience and the service. I worked in hospitality for ten years and I have never seen a stronger team push so hard and so consistently. It’s not your average place. It has such a full house night after night for a reason! I bow to the management and absolutely admire that this has no replica. Everyone loves a mom and pop restaurant!!!!!! Don’t ever leave our neighborhood!!

We dined for Valentines Dinner with a reservation and it was still very crowded but that was expected. We did wait for a little time to sit as we had drinks and then we were seated. It did not take long to get orders in and food came out quickly. Server was very on top of things and as we were enjoying our food and then a dessert as well. The food was great as always and we will always return no matter what day it is. I always recommend this place as it’s a very good place to dine no matter what occasion. Thanks again for a great night.

We made a 9:30 reservation for the 15th. We arrived at 9:29 to a mad house. Elbow to elbow. Finally plowed to the desk and was told we were checked in but it would still be a 30-45 minute wait. We decided to leave and go somewhere else. We were looking forward to the famous Hal’s but were severely disappointed.

Horrible experience. Restaurant was severely overcrowded and unsafe. Entrance/egress was completely blocked with people and no management control. We were seated 45 minutes late only because we continue the front desk. Front desk staff was overwhelmed, unfriendly and not in control. My fiancé was visiting from California and we were looking for a nice dinner. We finally got seated, but the dining room was also overcrowded and uncomfortable. Waiter was pleasant and apologetic. By the time our food came, my fiancé was fed up so we left without eating. She complained without profanity to the front desk and Sammy told her to be a lady and ended up telling us to leave and don’t come back. We were also escorted out by a security guard. I have dined at Hal’s before, clearly this evening the place was out of control. We felt very unsafe due the entrance being completely blocked by people. They also allow smoking in the bar area which is adjacent to the kitchen.
Don’t waste your money here, there are better and safer restaurants close by.
Thanks Hal’s for a miserable experience and upsetting my fiancé.
