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.

    Service was not as great as as it has been in the past. Still ok, but just not as great. Food is always great at Hal’s. The drinks were not good this time at all. Still one of the best steak houses in Atlanta, and I will be back. But room for improvement.

    Watch the prices! Prices don't match what you are charged for. Online showed $75, menu showed $80, we were charged $85 on the actual receipt. Other than milking the money train, the food and service was exceptional. I was curious though what was entered on the ticket for seating arrangements for them to walk up to us and know it was us -- without being the person who took our name. But nonetheless, I love Hal's and the food is beyond amazing.

    A hal’s has started an automatic 20% gratuity. i do not feel this is fair. if service is good yes absolutely. we have had good and bad. if bad , 20 is not the amount to tip. if a service is automatically added , just raise prices 20% and say no tip needed

    It was so loud, we could barely hear each other speak at our table. I would compare it to eating at a bar. For the amount of money we spent for a fine meal, One would think we could be seated in an area more conducive to fine dining.

    Hal’s never disappoints food and service wise. If you’re looking for a quiet dinner, this isn’t the place, but their lobster mac and cheese will make you forget about it. The steaks melt in your mouth, the oysters are always fresh, and the staff is always helpful. We’ll continue to come back.

    It was my first time at Hal’s. I had heard good things but I don’t love it. I’m not sure if it was because it was Valentine’s Day but a couple of people waiting said it’s always like that. It was crowded. The hostess did not seem organized. The service was marginal and so was the food. For all the rage, I would rather dine at a nicer steakhouse. I don’t think I will be back.

    I would have tipped more but they automatically include a 20% gratuity for any size party and I was 2 . When they force that on me I just sign but I usually tip 35% that’s there loss, very tacky for tables 6 and under

    Our server, Jeff, was phenomenal! We’d return based on the service alone. The food was good. My steak didn’t have the superior quality I had experienced previously at Hal’s. With the inflation that has hit all restaurants pricing, my expectations are for a perfect experience. The value quotient has fallen. The main dining room feels very cramped , especially at our table that was against the wall. Also, even though it is a no smoking facility the residual odor of cigar smoke is prevalent .

    Another delicious experience at Hal’s! The service is impeccable and the atmosphere gives you the “old school” steak house feel. The bone-in filet is perfection, the bread pudding is ridiculously good and my Old Fashioned was wonderful!

    Took my husband for his birthday and at first we were seated in the corner of a sunroom tucked behind a very large loud party. We asked to move and were accommodated; however, our new waiter essentially ignored us all evening. Now that I’m writing this review it is probably because tip is automatically added. Anyways, I left disappointed.
