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 at Hal’s is excellent. The wait staff is excellent. I don’t plan to go back because they allow smoking, which is so antiquated nowadays. The atmosphere is old-school meaning that it’s dark with darker wood and darker greens. That’s really not what I prefer either but it’s not bad.

Our food was fantastic (the steak is literally the best in Atlanta), the drinks were delicious, our server was awesome and the ambiance was perfect. they sat everyone one table apart so i wasn't nervous to be too close to other patrons and all the wait staff wore surgical masks. overall, fantastic experience!

The atmosphere upstairs was amazing. Everyone was very helpful--great service. I got a martini, chargrilled oysters, and fettucine alfredo; all were spectacular! I will be back.

We were shocked to see a packed lounge when we walked in the door with absolutely no social distancing taking place and that made us nervous for what we would find upstairs. We were pleasantly surprised to see a well distanced dining area and we were seated in a corner on the balcony. Our waiter, and all the staff, had on gloves and a mask and that helped as well. Drinks and appetizers came quickly. I'm a stickler for a simple old fashioned and this bartender muddled the fruit, which I don't like. I also prefer a single large ice cube and they use more of a typical cube. That will be my last old fashioned at Hals. My wife and her friend ordered martinis and they loved them. For appetizers, we got roasted oysters and fried lobster bites. Both were a hit. Salads came next and they are large enough to split. Everyone ordered filets and most were cooked over. Not to the point that we complained, but when spending $60 on a piece of meat at one of the better steak houses in Atlanta, you expect a more consistent temperature. Our server even asked if we wanted plus on the medium rare. I ordered medium rare plus and got a solid medium or even a medium plus. My wife ordered the medallions and you would think that if the large steak was over, the medallions would be crispy. Not so. Hers was cooked to a perfect medium rare. Even being cooked a bit over, the steak was still moist and the flavor was great. Last is desert. We were there for a special occasion so our server brought out two complementary, the molten chocolate cake and a strawberry cheese cake. Both were loved by all.

If you are looking for a good steak Hals is a great place to go. Stay away from the chains and go visit a long standing local Atlanta establishment. Your steak may be a bit over done, but you will still leave happy.

Food was delicious. They allow smoking downstairs but as long as you go upstairs it won’t be a problem. The service is great and the price is fair. If it wasn’t for the smoking, it would be 5 stars.

This place is an Atlanta institution! Katie the wonderful bartender was attentive and delightful as always. I had Veal Masala , probably one of the best Marsalis I have ever had. Kitchens often struggle with getting just the right balance of sweet to savory
Not Hal’s , they nailed it!
Love this place! Can’t wait for Friday lunches to open again! That Hamburger is EVERYTHING!

Best dining experience in atlanta. If you’re looking for a night out with a significant other, or a long time group of friends, go to Hal’s. It’s worth every cent.

Steak as good as Chops and Little Alley, with more fun and energetic vibe... no stuffy attitude like Bones. Try their apps Lobster bites and escargot.
