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.
Exceptional as always. Hands down the BEST steakhouse in the ATL.
Food, service, Howie card tricks at the table, tiramisu after dinner for son’s graduation...couldn’t have been better!
Back to normal life
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!
Steak great, Lobster, poor no dross, sides and bread poor
Steak was a little overcooked but still had a nice flavor.
Food was Overseasoned
Outstanding as usual!! First time out since quarantine and Hal’s did not disappoint. Highly recommend the Hal’s Ribeye, Lobster Mac & Cheese & Brussel Sprouts!!
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.
Glad to see Hal's up and running. Great food and service
Every visit to Hals is a great time. The food is always excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. My favorite!
Always a great time at HALS
Staff was great so was the food. Glad to be back.
The food and service is amazing. We love to celebrate special family events at Hal's. Always perfect!
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.
We had a fabulous time. Food and service was excellent! It was our first time out in a very long time!
Sammy provided balloons and covered the table in confetti in honor of my birthday. The dessert tray was sinful.
First time out since quarantine
It was the first night out dining in a restaurant in a couple of months and we knew we wanted to go somewhere that would be awesome as Hal’s always is! Every morsel melted in our mouths. The service was terrific. Pricey dinner of course but worth it. Still wish they would stop the cigar smoking in the bar!
The food and service were great. We stuffed ourselves!
The Lobster Bisque was exceptional.
Hal's is always wonderful. Great food. Great service. Wonderful people. Everyone's neighborhood favorite.
Fresh, perfectly-cooked food and excellent, friendly service. I love Hal's, but this was my best experience by far!
Jamal and Alex did a great job
Well done Hal’s
The food was amazing,
Awesome dining experience as always!
Hal's has been successful in Atlanta for all the reason's you would expect - great atmosphere, excellent service, and wonderful food. I will definitely go again!
This is the second time we have been here and it has been incredible both times!
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
We had the most fun girls luncheon! The food and ambience was the best! Look forward to my next visit!
Great restaurant with great food love the piano bar
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.
Waiter was outstanding. He was also our sommelier and made excellent recommendations
Food and service were excellent. Alvin took great care of us. Will definitely return.
