The food flavors at Hal's are amazing; from the drinks to the apps to the entree. Service was very good as well. I have eaten at some of the best steak houses in America, and the steaks at Hal's are easily among the best. My one complaint would be that the restaurant decor needs to be updated. I felt as...

I was very disappointed at my experience at Hal's. The Hostess would not let us change tables even though the place was empty. She said they were booked to capacity....um...ok. The waiters were lifting tables over our heads, and packing people in tables that were too small for them. The food was cold and the waiter brought us the wrong... More

This is our second time at Hal's. Both experiences were 5 star. Excellent food, excellent service!! The filet is amazing, and so is the atmosphere. My husband and I always try to come either here or Bones when we come to Atlanta.

The service is excellent, appetizer oysters were very good, and the steaks we ordered (3 people) had excellent flavor, dessert (ice cream with brownie) was great, everything perfect

I've been here multiple tImes on business and it has always been great. I took my family here for Xmas eve dinner. The food quality was quite good. My disappointment is that we were stuffed into a temporary table crammed in as an extra table. The chairs were folding chairs; not very comfortable. It was extra noisy and quite difficult... More

We visited Hal's last week, this restaurant has always been adored by myself, clients and friends. I am writing this review not because of the food ( it's always spot on ) but because of our service. Our server essentially disappeared for our whole meal, the party of 4 that accompanied myself went without refills on water & cocktails. When... More

6 of us dined at Hal's to celebrate the year and we were not disappointed. We started with a few dozen oysters (parmesan & garlic) Yum!! The Lobster Bisque was very good. Four of us had the signature filet ($55) and the other 2 has the Chilean Sea Bass. Everyone was very satisfied with their choice. The filet was tender,... More

We had a work dinner party for 6 last night. It was fantastic as usual. I was a bit dissapointed that the petit 8oz filet is now off the menu so I split the 12oz with my wife. But as usual the service was prompt. The food was delicious. Best filets anywhere. I prefer mine cooked "Pittsburgh Medium". Try it.
