In 2008, Holeman and Finch Public House opened for business and began serving casual, approachable fare with a sophisticated slant. The menu is driven by Chef Linton Hopkins’ signature all-from-scratch approach, as well as his passion for vegetables. The restaurant, which promotes a sense of community with its kitchen nook-style seating and convivial ambiance, offers a continually changing menu in accordance with the year’s seasons and area farmer’s harvests, along with a dedicated parts menu honoring whole animal cookery.

The food was really good. We had one bad experience with hair in my man's burger, but this was immediately fixed. The drinks were good. The server did good with his recommendations.

Food was great and so was the service. The only surprise was how tight the restaurant was - not a lot of room to move through the tables.

Holeman and Finch used to be our favorite neighborhood spot. No more. The menu has changed and is no longer unique. The fried oysters were more over-breaded topping than oyster. The once outstanding pate, served in a small jar with a gelatin topping, is now just a slice from a loaf of pate similar to something I can buy at Whole Foods. When I asked for a to-go box for remaining pate, I requested a few extra toast points. I was told there would be an extra charge for that. Really? A charge for one small slice of bread cut into quarters? Is Linton Hopkins faring poorly? Does he need alms for bread. Good-bye Holeman & Finch. We used to love you. No more.

Always good food and drinks; the seating was a little tight, but service was excellent. Found the deviled eggs a bit salty, but the cornbread is amazing. Can't go wrong with the burger. Overall, I love the vibe at Holeman and Finch!

We went at 7:45 on a Sunday and the menu only had two entrees, and a number of dishes were 86ed. Food took a long time, and when it was time for dessert, the server just brought our check and told us the kitchen was closed; no warning, no nothing. This was at 8:30, and the table next to us had JUST placed a dessert order. Plan your outing accordingly.

All around the best dining experience from beginning to end. Drinks, food, service were all perfect. We do date nights frequently and like to try new places, but I will be making this one a frequent stop.

We started out with an order of fried oysters which was enough for two. My husband had a vegetable plate and I had the famous hamburger. Both were delicious. The sticky toffee for dessert was out of this world.

My only criticism would be to have the back area more open rather than the windows being covered and the booths being so high that you could not see into the restaurant.

Our server, Opeyemi, was attentive and described the dishes well.

For all the hype surrounding the burger, it didn't quite live up to the expectation I'd set. It was REALLY great, don't get me wrong! But I guess I just had it really built up in my mind from everything I'd heard. Still would highly recommend! The waitress recommended the bone marrow which was different and phenomenal! We wouldn't have tried it if she didn't recommend it. Glad she did. Overall a wonderful experience!

I went with a vegetarian friend. He inquired about the vegetable plate and was told it was cooked in beef fat. He then asked the server about an alternate preparation and was told that was the only way it came and there were no vegetarian alternatives. He had to order the carbonara with no egg or bacon. When he then inquired about a side of vegetables to order with his plain pasta he was told that wasn’t an option. This is absolutely unacceptable for a restaurant of this caliber to not offer any vegetarian entree or to be willing to accommodate a vegetarian request.

The food was great but I think the waiter forgot he had a table! We ordered wine and they didn’t come back until we were halfway done with dinner. Shame on you for poor service. Another waiter had to take over so we weren’t really sure who our server was? Then he came back and didn’t even know that we had dinner. A little disorganized

Visiting Atlanta for the first time in 8 years we returned to Holeman and Finch for a friend’s birthday. We started off with happy hour $1 oysters which was a mind blower for the west coasters who rarely pay less than $3 a pop!. The Charcuterie and cheese course was very good, we tried 8 different items among the 5 of us. The mains were quite good and the desserts were well done. The wine list isn’t as extensive as I’d like but we powered through several bottles.

Great service, I hope it isn’t 8 years before I go back!

To my mind, this is the perfect restaurant - outstanding food with a warm and inviting atmosphere. You'll be equally comfortable in jeans or cocktail attire. The starters are delicious and you'll be sorry you shared them! The entrees are equally scrumptious, making it hard to choose! Then you move onto the desserts, which you swear you're too full to enjoy and yet ... you can't resist and won't be sorry you caved! Some of my favorites - the deviled eggs and Crunchy Gentleman, the burger (of course!), the cookies and the sticky toffee pudding. What's not to love?

The service is as fantastic as the food! Everyone is quick to say hello and ask if you need anything. (Even after two spills on my part they keep their good spirits!) The servers are knowledgeable, attentive, and totally charming. I can't recommend Holeman and Finch highly enough!

Nothing written here will make anyone change their mind of H&F. Great place for a most excellent burger and drinks. The appetizer boards are yummy though pricy. Did get some roasted cauliflower as well which was tasty though. Will keep coming back for burgers and drinks even if not for anything else.

If you are in the mood for a delicious meal and tasty cocktails look no further than Holeman and Finch. I went for Saturday brunch and enjoyed it so much I stayed until the 3 PM closing. I highly recommend the steak tartare (the best I have tasted anywhere in the USA, yes it is that good!), deviled eggs and the Johnny cakes. If Kayla is your bartender I know you will be well served in all respects. Cheers ;-)

Holeman and Finch is small, cramped and the seating makes it impossible to get up and use the restroom without bumping someone's table or tripping over someone's foot. The layout of the restaurant was not considered at all! The menu was depressing, roast bone marrow for $20?! Appetiter yeast rolls for $3 that look like the type you could purchase at the famer's market. The cocktail menu was a very generous with an almost overwhelming selection, but once you consider the mixtures the selection is quick to narrow down. Definitely will not return or recommend. The location is charming and parking is very limited

We had a wonderful time at Holeman and Finch! We started with the meal with a delicious cheese plate and had the Springer Mountain Chicken, pork loin and burger for entrees. Everything was delicious and everyone was very happy with their meals. Every staff member we interacted with was kind, prompt and professional. I would recommend H&F to anyone!
