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.

Complimentary specials

Every Saturday and Sunday from 3-5pm we offer:

Pick just one or enjoy them all - no matter what you decide, we guarantee your weekend just got a little more delicious.

Happy Hour $1 Oysters

Every M-F from 5-7pm, come enjoy $1 oysters!

Burger lived up to the hype. Other small plates were excellent. Deviled eggs, vegetables, carbonara were wonderful.

We went on a Sunday and enjoyed the sidebar specials. Such a good value, burger, fries and a beer for $10.00. The burgers are delicious! We also enjoyed a charcuterie board for only 5.00. Everything was good quality. Service was prompt.

Unfortunately we were thee on a Sunday afternoon. I guess they had a very busy Saturday night because 2 of the items I ordered from the menu were unavailable which was a disappointment. What I ordered was fine, but not exactly what I wanted. On the flip side, the restaurant was quiet on and we had great service on a Sunday afternoon.

This restaurant has gone way down! The burger was as not as good as I remember it being, and the service today was terrible. Dined here today with my husband for a late lunch, there was only one other table in the restaurant, and a few people in the bar, but my drink took so long! Server was not engaging or friendly. Open table advertised that the burger was $10 between 3-5, but we got charged $15 for each burger.

Hello, I would like to assist you with the miscommunication on the pricing of our burger. You are absolutely right, we do offer the $10 burger special. Please contact me directly and I can correct the mistakes on your check. I want to apologize for the neglect from our staff, our service team does not practice those standards as a whole. Please reach out so I can adjust and refund your check prices. Thank you, Management

The food, cocktails, service and vibe are consistently outstanding. Holeman and Finch has never disappointed. They may be known for their delicious burgers but that pales in comparison to the chicken, trout or Carbonara. They also have great vegetable options too.

Strange, been frequently since it opened but this time seemed like they were a newly opened inexperienced restaurant. Even with a reservation for 2, and several empty tables, took 20 minutes to be seated (no excuse), food was average, only the waiter and a couple of other staff-people who were very friendly, made up for the evening. Won't go back. The best burger in the US has shrunk to a small imitation of itself. Overall, very disappointing. Can't say anything good except the waiter was great. We eat out in Buckhead 4 times per week but never here again, too many better alternatives for the price.

Seated at a table the size of a frying pan. Elbows were touching other patron next to us. Didn’t take drink order after 15 minutes seated. When we asked if we could move to larger open table 3 feet away, answer was “no because then everyone will want to move and this is what we have for you tonight ok?” Worst experience I have had at any restaurant in Atlanta.

The host who seated us was also the individual who waited on us. Having received an email about the special that was available from 4 to 5, I asked about it. He lied and claimed it was only available up to 4 o’clock. (We were seated at 4:30 which was the time of our reservation.) What we had to order was grossly overpriced, and distasteful given his misrepresentation designed to ensure he received a larger tip by denying us the option of the 4-5 o’clock special.

Best burger I’ve ever had. Traveled from DC for NYE and stayed till 5 when they opened just to try the burger, it was more than worth it. I would also recommend the deviled eggs and dirty bread pudding.

Great food, pleasant people. However, they were out of three things that we asked for from the regular menu, which was a bit off-putting. We also felt that our servers were genuinely sorry about this and they offered the best alternatives available. The buffalo fried chicken skins were an amazing app, and I can't say enough about the charcuterie (although the cheese may have been a bit mis-characterized as a mild cheese, it was very tasty.) Not a large place, which suited us to a T, but plan accordingly if you have more than a couple of people coming.

still as good as ever. I am not looking forward to its reported move to Colony Square which will take this location further away from me. Much better than its namesake at Battery Park and different than the location at Ponce. Although they had run out of some items, the burgers and fries were tasty as ever. Nice beer with the closest thing to a Guinness pour that I've had this side of Ireland.

Finally experienced the famous H & F burger! It absolutely lives up to its reputation. Once I picked up the burger, I never let it go until it was finished, which made me sad😥
Can't wait to return and do it all over again!
Thank you Korey for being the best and most fun server we've ever had!

For some reason the heating in the restaurant was not turned on before dinner service so it was extremely cold. The service and food were in general poor. We placed our food order and some time later were told that the pasta dish was out. I would have expected that the service staff would have been made aware of this fact before we ordered. We also ordered the half chicken and the grits served with the dish were cold. From a service perspective we have to ask for EVERYTHING, no follow up even though the restaurant that was not even full.

As much as I love the food and the staff (who are always accommodating) HF can never get their service up to par😔
The wait for the first cocktail is unacceptable; a draft beer takes fifteen minutes, and no matter how delicious the cocktail, it’s never worth the wait. Y’all gots to pull it together please!

My wife and I really wanted to like Holeman and Finch. But, it was not to be. We arrived at 6:30 and were immediately seated. The very small dining room is incredibly crowded and set up to fail. Our table in the middle of the room was so close to the other table that I could not sit down without constantly hitting chairs with the table behind me. It was actually worse at the side tables. Very poor set up. After sitting totally unnoticed until 6:50, a waiter finally asked us if we wanted drinks. Yes, we did. We never saw him again until 7:05 when we got our drinks, 35 minutes after sitting down. Seriously? That's great service, right? Eventually we ordered food at 7:10 and it began arriving around 7:20. The food was good, not great. But, the service was horrible and the ambiance was worse. Trying to eat with people banging up against you and aisles so narrow that the waiter had to turn sideways just to get by the table was not an experience I want to have again. And, I won't.

This place is somewhat of a hidden treasure. Hard to believe they've been there for about 10 years. The food and drinks are amazing. The staff is super friendly. The location is pretty small and intimate. Great for a date night or a few friends to get together (like 5 or 6 friends). We will definitely be back!

The food and service was great. However with a reservation we still had to wait a hour. It was very noisy with tables within 2 ft of each other. Too crowded and way to noisy to enjoy the wonderful food.
