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.

I have been to Hal's almost every time i entertain clients in Atlanta. it is always noisy, but this week was extreme. interesting that your adjective for the loudest noise level is "energetic". We could not hear one another, could not hear the server. Hard to close a deal when you cannot hear one another. I understand that may be Hal's vibe but this was very loud and we'll need to look elsewhere in the future.
food was excellent, although out of one item and a dessert chosen by the client.

Hello, We are so sorry to hear your boyfriends birthday wasn't celebrated with a dessert and candle in typical Hal's fashion! Could you provide me with a little further information so I can look into this please?

Love Hal’s for great food and service. Hal’s ribeye is absolutely delicious and worth the salt. One of my favorite steaks in the city. Highly recommend the truffle Mac and cheese!

The food was great but it was very loud the Friday night we went. We had to basically shout across the table (party of 4) to hear each other.

I love Hal's! However, it seems like they have tried to crowd more tables in the downstairs and you can not walk through the table without someone having to scoot their chair in. Noise level was off the chains as well. I had to yell to speak to the person at my table.

Very good and the service is superb! The oyster dish was very interesting and the steak was cooked to perfection. I also enjoyed the fried lobster tail and a very comprehensive wine list.

Hal’s was fantastic as always! Food was impeccable; our waiter was fantastic; and they even threw in a special treat for my wife for Mother’s Day! Hal himself was there- and told our boys to bring their dates there when they are old enough- ON HIM!

Can’t go wrong at Hal’s!

Hal’s is an excellent choice for an incredible dinner experience. We have been dining there for many years. Always consistent.
The filets are outstanding along with the many side dishes available.
Our favorite server is Bobby. He knows the menu inside and out.
Highly recommend you make a reservation soon.
Enjoy-

I know this is a steakhouse but I had the sea bass special and it's one of the best I've ever had and I've had it at several different restaurants. Also recommend the lobster mac and cheese! I'm sure the steak must be out of this world since that is what they are known for ...I'm going back to try! The service was Awesome :)

OUTSTANDING!!!
Food was superb.
Service was nonpareil.
Ambience was “happening”.
Any trip, to Atlanta, would be incomplete; without, a trip, to Hal’s. It is “old school” magnificent.

Hal's is lively and loud in a good way. It goes down hill from there. Our appetizers came quickly, then we waited 30 minutes for our entrees. The lobster app and seafood gumbo were very good. The escargot was served with no bread other than the table bread (stale garlic bread). My bone-in rib eye was perfect. My wife's osso buco was so bad we questioned whether the meat had spoiled. To top off the evening, the waiter altered my drink - bringing me a different vodka and only disclosing the fact as he handed me the bill. How dare he. Not sure if we would ever go back given the number of great steakhouses in Atlanta.
