“Excellent Steakhouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Went Hal's while on a business trip. Arrivde late without reservations, Hal's was very accommodating. It was my second time at Hal's. The service and food were five star. Their featured steak is a Filet Mignon and was cook to perfection. Anyone who wants a great steak, Hal's the place. Hal's pricing is in the high range, but comparable to any great steakhouse.

“Great restaurant tucked away in Buckhead”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Great steaks and wine choices with the addition of a very active bar on two floors. After living in Metro Atlanta for over 18 years I never frequented nor heard of Hal's but the next time I go back I will certainly eat there again. Blackened Filet was outstanding!

“Cougar centric steak house and old men with money looking for some fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Legenadary buckhead spot known for their cougars, steaks, businessmen looking for some young love. All this mingles happily together to create an eventful night! Cigars abound at the bar. Not sure how they get away with it but adds to the charm of the place. Dining room is intimate and service is tops.

Had a mixed seafood platter with chunks of lobster, crab, calamari, shrimp, and crawfish. Big portion and all the food was very fresh.

Hal's steaks are where its at. Had a bone in filet special that was to die for! This is as good a piece of meat as I have had. Family style sides were solid.

Drinks are strong, wine list is decent. Must do for a. Authentic Atlanta experience.

“A Steak you Won't Forget”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

We went to Hal's on Old Ivy for a friends birthday dinner. It was our first time dining at Hal's. The experience was AWESOME. The service and food are five diamond. The steak is exceptional. I love cooking and eating. Anyone who's had one of my steaks would tell you I make a mean steak. Hal's is one of the only places I've had a steak that I believe is better than mine. That kind of steak prepared for me and served to me with TOP NOTCH service...Enough said.
