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.

We’ve been a couple times. First for brunch/drinks and then twice for dinner. The food has always been excellent. We have never ordered anything we didn’t love. I do wish the draft beer selection was better, especially with dark beers, but the bottled beer selection makes up for it. Their whiskey selection is huge and top notch. It’s not a “cheap date” by far but it is worth every penny, I assure you.

I do feel like the charcuterie trays are on the small side with only four or five thin slices of meat or maybe two ounces of cheese but I realize they are high quality, expensive, and often local offerings. Most dishes are small plates and I would highly recommend ordering several to share. My girlfriend and I usually order an app or two and then order two or three items for our meal to share. That’s not a complaint at all, it enables you to try a ton of truly great food. We’ve also never left hungry.

Overall, I think it’s a great find and would recommend to anyone lookin for a nice dinner date. Food and service are excellent. Dishes are creative. And, most importantly, it’s delicious. It seems like a place that would be overly pretentious. I can honestly say the staff was knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions we’ve ever had. Definitely worth checking out.

The food was delicious. Just wish the server had been more knowledgeable when asked questions about food products and sources. I ordered a french omelet and asked her what the greens were inside. She did not know and instead told me about how nice the individual was were the product is sourced. Had to give my best guess on what was inside. Asked about jam for toast and she didn't know what they had. She just brought a muscadine one back; no options given.

The burgers and fries were delicious and the price was reasonable . The drink prices however were too high. $14 for a small and mediocre bloody Mary and $12 for a small mimosa... ridiculous. We didn’t know the prices when we switched to beer but we were glad we didn’t have a second cocktail. On top of that, the time it took to get a drink was not acceptable. Keep the drinks coming and you will have happy customers. Our server was lovely but not sure whose fault it was for the slow drink orders. Unfortunately, we probably won’t go back anytime soon.

Love this place! As we arrived, (early due to skipping lunch), one of the Chefs was carrying in a “log” of fresh mushrooms....
30 minutes later, these mushrooms appeared on the menu.....
With Chorizo & Hollandaise!! SUPERB!
Perfectly cooked NY Steak!
Excellent & attentive service from Annette.
Thank you!
Will see you on next visit to the ATL.

Very delicious food! What made the yummy food even better was the impeccable service and welcoming personality of our server, Kory. He was knowledgeable and assisted perfectly with our menu choices. He helped make our dinner perfect! The favs of the night were the okra and eggplant dish, oysters, burger, chicken entree, and the Hoppenjans side dish.

The food was good as always, and the service was excellent. However, their air conditioning was out, and given I had reservations I kind of feel like I should’ve been told this before arriving. I would have worn something more comfortable, and the gentlemen would not have worn blazers had we known this fact.

Entrée food was good and reasonably priced. Felt the starters were over-priced for the amount of food. we had the charcuterie and it came with two small wedges of cheese and small pile of meat. The pork belly and peaches, while very good, was the same price as the entrees. The dining space felt cramped.

Previously one of my favorite restaurants. Hadn't been in awhile and didn't realize the menu had changed so much. Fewer choices, more expensive, and overall the food just didn't sound very interesting. Plus, in an empty restaurant we were seated in the last table by the lockers so I could watch employees change their shoes.

Left without ordering food and probably won't go back.

We really really wanted to like this place since it was so convenient to my son’s apartment, but after dining out at a midtown restaurant last night and seeing that Holeman’s drink prices were about ten dollars more for the same exact drinks, it was a little disheartening. Then we ordered a cheese plate. We had high expectations and were disappointed by the small portion sizes. The cheese plate is maybe better for two instead of four. We were going to do dinner, but we were turned off after the appetizer. The ambiance in the bar was nice, but the dining room was super small and very warm. Service was good; however, our experience was not.

With one of our grandsons we continued our search for Atlanta's best cheeseburger at H&F, a burger we've enjoyed at Braves games for years. Much as we liked the ballpark version, this one was better yet! We also enjoyed the chicken liver pate and can't wait to return to try the sweetbreads.
A special note of thanks to our server, Annette, who noticing that my wife was picking at her burger, asked if anything was wrong and my wife replied that she didn't really care for cheese on hers but that she'd make do as she should have known. Annette was back in seconds to tell her that a burger without cheese was on the grill for her. We'll be back!

The peppers are amazing. So simple and yet tasty. The sweetbreads tasted like a piece of fried chicken. Really good fried chicken. Crunchy, salty, savory are among the words to describe. Solid cocktails. Comfortable ambience. I will be back.

we really enjoyed our meal at H&F. I had a Galapagos cocktail and it was amazing! The food was great, as was the service. The only negative was that they ran out of their famous hamburger. Because they have a fairly limited entree menu, you would think that they would make sure not to run out of one the items.

Every part of my meal at Holeman and Finch was perfect. Their strip, with bleu cheese butter, was the best, most perfectly cooked steak I have ever had. I was treated like royalty, or even better, like family. The quality both in service and in food abounded. I thoroughly enjoyed every second of my experience. 11/10 would recommend!

Much-lauded cocktails lacked in both presentation and flavor. Kitchen overwhelmed and could not get items and courses out at the proper time. Creative menu, but just not that tasty. I would not risk going here at this particular time.

Staff was pleasant and made the effort to come out and explain why everything was late, but ultimately that did not compensate for a bad dining experience.

The experience was interesting. We were brought some hard rolls with pickles and mayo which was weird. I ordered the bacon Carmel corn which was stale, the cheese burger which doesn’t come with lettuce and tomato and I was told that it would be $2 for a slice of tomato and $2 for a slice of lettuce. The manager came to our table which I didn’t ask for him and explained it was because the lettuce was coming from their $12 salad and not iceberg are you kidding me? I hate being nickel and dimed especially at a restaurant that is supposed to be posh. The burger was good but give me a break. I’ve eaten at all the Taos, Cipriani, Giannis, Barton G and many more great restaurants and have never experienced such foolishness. I will pass.
