Have been 3 times. Every time as good or better than the time before. Best steak I've eaten in the eastern US. We compare every steak we eat to Hal's, and none have been better. Everything is fresh and delicious. Staff is the best!

My second time here. Would be more often if I didn't live in Mississippi. This time I had a filet which is probably the best I have had. Creamed spinach was delicious also. Cheesecake was shared for desert and it was a huge portion and very good.

If you are looking for a prime beef steakhouse, you are better off here that going to the chains. Reservations are a must for sure. The filet is probably the best I have had in a long while. Service was a little slow, but the place was packed. Not a quiet place, but the food makes up for it. Definitely... More

I met a business associate at Hal's tonight for dinner. It was busy for a Tuesday evening, but the hostess found us a table on the upstairs level. A great menu always leaves you wishing you could sample everything. We went for the blackened filet and it was excellent. It was tender, moist, and had a great blackened flavor. Orion... More

My wife and I went to Hals on a Saturday night and had the best dining experience. We felt like we went back in time as there was a piano bar and all these gentlemen smoking the cigars. Its an old school restaurant. We both had the ribeye steaks with several sides to share. Again, best steak in Atlanta in... More

I can't say enough wonderful things about Hal's. It isn't your typical high end steak house but feels like what steakhouses were meant to be. With wood paneled walls and a piano player at the first floor bar, Sinatra would feel at home smoking a cigar while sipping a scotch. I've been there with just the 2 of us or... More

The best filet I have ever had. Sides are good. Service is average. Great people watching. Always crowded so be prepared to wait. It's definitely worth it.
