Best steaks in Atlanta

I love this place. It is consistently delicious. The atmosphere is boisterous and fun not at all like the other uptight, stuffy steak restaurants. I highly recommend this place to all my friends and nobody has ever been disappointed.

Great food, great service, lame event coordinator Jennifer. Unprofessional, unresponsive. Does not follow through with what she says. I took a large party there, it was like pulling teeth to get anything out of her. You commit to 24 dinners, I would expect responsiveness. Yo Hal's Mgt, you reading this?

My wife and I shared our birthday/Valentine's Day at Hals. The place was packed; however, we were immediately seated due to reservations. We've been many places with reservations and rarely seated this quickly. We ordered the bone-in Ribeye and Filet. The steaks were cooked perfectly! Our meal and drinks arrived promptly and our glasses never stayed empty. Service was excellent... More

My wife and I visited Hal's for a weekend get away dinner. First the positive. The meal was fantastic. Had our steak charred "Pittsburgh style", absolutely divine. The resturaunt has old school supper club charm. I love it. No the bad, we had a 7:30 reservation and did not get seated until 8:30. Had a drink at the bar which... More

Valentines night dinner. Had not been in many years. Food was awesome- the BEST swordfish dish I've had in years and my wife raved about the lamb. Sauces light and perfectly seasoned. Veggies excellent. Service first rate, attentive while not feeling rushed. The place feels a bit like a NY steakhouse- not as loud. Tables pretty close together- try and... More

It was my first impression at Hal's. Dimly lit interior and smoking cigars inside might be a turn off for some. our table was upstairs where there is no smoking and no smoke smell either. Our waiter was quick with warm garlic bread and drinks. Very helpful with the menu and wine selection. The one thing I didn't like was... More

We went to Hal's on a Saturday night. It was highly recommended and I was enthusiastic. The place was packed for a 9PM reservation. We did arrive early so went to the bar.....but it was so crowded it was even difficult to get a drink. Finally, we got some drinks, a party moved from the dining room from a bar... More

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...
