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.

In town from NYC and Hal’s was one of the greatest restaurants experiences I’ve ever had. Get the lobster special app. The 22oz ribeye is as good as it gets.
Ten stars if it existed......

This was our first visit to Hal's after hearing about it for years. The visit was worth the wait! The server and all of our food selections (crawfish tails, escargot, lobster bisque, steaks and bread pudding) were all fantastic. The place was incredibly loud and energetic but it was 7:30pm Saturday night. All in all, a fantastic dining experience.

Food and service were outstanding. Everything from the appetizer to cocktails to steaks and sides were perfectly cooked. Only complaint was an extremely loud table near us that made it difficult to converse without shouting - not Hal's fault though.

The only draw back to the dining experience was the smoke from the bar transcending into the dining area. At a minimum, Hal's should prohibit cigar smoking, and ultimately consider moving to a smoke free environment.

Old school, clubby steakhouse for sure! They even allow smoking inside at the bar. Fortunately we were seated well away so this didn't bother us. Can't say I would've felt the same if we were in one of the closer tables! Steak was excellent. Wonderful, extensive wine list. Lots of high-end steakhouses in Atlanta to choose from and this is another solid one!

It was my husband’s birthday and they sat us in the front of the restaurant near the window in a nice and quiet area. Our server was Jeff and was very attentive and personable. The food never disappoints and we both ordered filets that were exactly as we requested. The meat melts in your mouth. We were both very full and decided to skip dessert and order coffee. The next thing we knew was that Jeff came over with a beautiful birthday dessert (brownie and ice cream) for us to share. It was a very thoughtful and generous gesture and topped off another wonderful experience at Hal’s.

Truly an Atlanta institution. So good! Have been going for over twenty five years. Whenever I want steak, this is the place I go. If I want to celebrate something special, again this is the place. Enjoy the food, the staff and just being in the very comfortable atmosphere. Love it.

It's a steakhouse. Run-of-the-mill steakhouse. With the exception of the brussel sprouts, it's nothing special. You could probably guess the menu. Very generic. Pretty pricey. It has to be the loudest restaurant that I've ever experienced. Think high school cafeteria loud - both the first and second floors. I won't be back.

The good: the food is excellent, not at the very top of the best steakhouses I've been to, but close. The service is quite good, though the place is so packed you sometimes find yourself looking for a waiter.

The bad: The noise. Oh the noise noise noise noise noise. It's crazily loud, annoyingly loud, impossible-to-hear-the-person-sitting-next-to-you-loud. The waiters have learned how to yell politely, but I fear for their vocal chords. The seating is not comfortable, and the place is so incredibly crowded that your chair is likely pressed up against the back of someone else's chair, and you really feel packed in. It's not comfortable, and I would never take a date there or plan anything romantic or anything that requires conversation at Hal's. I'm not kidding. I normally don't complain about noise, but this is excessive. It's really sad, because the food and the service make it the kind of place I would otherwise come back to again and again.
