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.

Amazing filet and service!! Best steak in Buckhead for sure.
Preferred upstairs as downstairs is the cigar bar.
We will be back.

Everything was perfect the only exception was that we asked for our steaks well done and they were extremely pink inside. We didn’t want to cause an issue so we just ate some of the steak and took the rest home to put on the over to cook all the way through. Overall, the atmosphere was great and the taste of the food was excellent.

100% capacity. Zero observance of any social distancing recommendations or table/bar spacing. Staff were all wearing masks which was great; however, less than 10% of the guests wore face covers walking to/from or while walking about the restaurant.

Food and service was fantastic as usual.

Awful - just awful. Obviously for the steak and potato crowd. No refinement nor finesse. Oily fried food devout of flavor. Overcooked pasta. Sweet sauces with no depth. Steak unimpressive. Complete waste of money.

The place was very dark on entering. The staff was sitting at a table where we were seated. This was very unprofessional. Upon us entering, the staff got up but hovered around in the area which made me nervous. However, our waiter was very knowledgeable in the food and very nice. The food was great!

Not sure what was going on Saturday June 20. My husband ordered a ribeye steak cooked medium well. The steak was cooked well done. I ordered lamb chops cooked medium and my entre was well done also. The 1st time that we visited was in February and everything was superb. This time around it was just ok We didn’t want to send it back due to the wait. Maybe you all got a new chef but he/she really needs to learn the different meat temperatures.

First time at Hal’s and we would definitely go back. Quality food, drinks and service! Unfortunately it is in desperate need of a facelift. Still had a wonderful evening but just wish the interior wasn’t so dated and dark.

The room was dark which was ok but a poorly placed tv in the corner cast distracting light across the room. As the program would change there would be a change in room color and ambiance that was detrimental.

The food was just average, it was not a memorable experience which is why I would go there. I can get average all over town and in chain restaurants. Don’t be average!

Good food - not great as advertised (sorry to report). We wasted an anniversary there - so disappointed. The service was subpar to say the least. Wrong food... late drinks... wrong drink... late correction of wrong drink... dessert coffee came way later than the actual dessert. We went for an anniversary... the hostess mentioned it... (it was on our OpenTable reservation) but no one else made any effort to make it a special evening. That's the job of the restaurant - which is why we went out instead of staying in for this special night. SPECIAL. That's on the service team. But good god they seemed put out and in a hurry to leave the table and stay away. Odd. I feel bad they have to wear masks... so I'm sure it's miserable all night. But we never felt comfortable - figuratively and literally. It was like we were unwanted guests in someone's home... but it cost us $150.

I think the place was too crowded as we are in the middle of Covid-19. We recommend a little more social distancing.

I love Hal’s. If you’ve never been, please support them. You’ll pay for it, but it is by far worth it.

First time there. Wasn't impressed steak was good small portions on sides. Wait staff was very attentive. For $180 with tip not a good value in my opinion. Won't be back.

Amazing! Came to Hal’s for a date night celebrating a Birthday. I reserved a seat on open table and everyone were super friendly and wishing us a Happy Birthday. Our waiter Ellis was friendly and very knowledgeable of items on the menu. Garlic bread was brought to our table loved it was trying not to fill up on the bread but it was super tasty. We ordered the calamari for our appetizer which came out very quickly and tasted amazing. Love that the calamari were on the bigger side. Whereas other places you tend to get more fried pieces than calamari. Then, we ordered New York Strips which were a special for the night. I got mine medium rare which and my date got his medium they both came out great. Side of mashed potatoes, broccoli, and truffle Mac n cheese. They were all amazing loved that the broccoli still had a crunch to it, mashed potatoes were soo smooth, and the truffle Mac n cheese was amazing it’s my new favorite. Then, Ellis brought out a Birthday Dessert warm chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. It was great even the ice cream wow and it was a shareable dessert. We will definitely be coming back soon. Thank you Hal’s & Ellis for making our first experience awesome!
