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 here is always phenomenal. I heard the waiter mention to another table that Hal’s has been rated to have the best steak 4 out the last 5 years. I said to myself, he’s lying. Bones has the best steak in Atlanta. After eating the bone-in filet as my entree that evening, he proved me wrong. Hall’s has the best steak in Atlanta...

Best steak I’ve ever had! Probably the best steak in Atlanta too. The only thing I didn’t like about it is that the place is so dark and a little tight on the inside. I recommend the filet mignon though!!

I have always enjoyed Hal's. Spectacular food and service. However on this visit, the service was very poor. They forgot the appetizer and salad and brought out the entrees first. Did not clear the table of empty glasses. Took awhile to bring the next drinks.

As always the food did not disappoint. The wait staff was attentive and in a normal world, this would have been a perfect dining experience. Unfortunately, we are not living in a normal world. Hal's was as busy if not busier than ever and there were absolutely no social distancing safeguards in place. I could easily reach out from my chair to the left or to the right and touch those sitting near me. Our waiter did a great job of keeping his mask on throughout the meal but many guests entering the restaurant did not have masks at all It seems. Luckily, my wife and I had both been vaccinated weeks prior otherwise we would have left. Hal's should care a little more about their staff to not only ensure their safety but also be a little more concerned about the safety of those coming to enjoy some of the best food Atlanta has to offer. If you plan to enjoy Hal's...grab the food to go and enjoy the food while not risking contracting a deadly disease that has killed 17,000 plus Georgians.

A wonderful evening celebrating our 53rd Anniversary. Hal's was our last visit to an indoor restaurant last year for our anniversary, and our first choice once we were vaccinated and felt safe. It was wonderful. The food was amazing! The lobster appetizer was divine and the filet is the best I have tasted ever!

received the usual great service. i like that when you are sitting at one of the bars waiting on your reservation they dont buzz you or text you. they politely come find you and wait for you to close the bar tab and then escort you to the table. mich more elegant process. and of course the food is always good.

The service was excellent and the steak was outstanding. The side dishes weren’t very different from other steakhouses but for an excellent steak and special occasion - great place. I would go back.

Brandon and the team that assisted him were amazing. Last time we were there for my birthday our server was horrible and extremely rude. This time everything was great. I will only sit with Brandon from now on.

We had reservations at 8 PM but, did not get seated until 8:55 PM almost an hour late. The waiter was very accommodating but, one of the girls food was burnt and had to be sent back. I always love Hal’s And this was my first “bad” experience there I realize it was a busy weekend and a Friday night but, to make a reservation and have to wait almost an hour is a little ridiculous especially since two girls ended up having to leave in the middle because it took so long

I took my husband here for his birthday dinner. The food was phenomenal - from the appetizer to dessert. He ordered the 16 oz New York strip which was prepared perfectly to his liking. I had the seabass which was truly delicious. Both entrees were off menu items. We were however surprised by how many people were there especially on a Tuesday evening, so the service was rather slow. Other than that our experience was excellent!

A friend had been bragging about Hal’s for months and it lived up to his hype. I've never had a better steak and truffle mac and cheese. I might have found a replacement for another favorite steak restaurant which I frequent. The door guy is super friendly and professional. Honestly, The service could have been better. My waiter was really nice. Although only seeing him interact with two other tables of two, he was super distracted and forgetful, which showed when I waited a long time for my entree after my appetizers. I would still return and give Hal’s another chance.
