Steak
A restaurant that triumphs in taste over trend, Hal's is not the typical highbrow restaurant so often equated with food of this quality. It is a place of white table cloths, flowers, warm brick, & candlelight.

I had an 8pm reservation. We didn’t get seated till 8:30. Best that wasn’t Hal’s fault. The hostess explained that 7 tables had paid their tabs, but had not left. And half way through my meal, I understood why! Great food and great service!

It was a pretty interesting evening. The waiter was excellent and so was the food. However, we were sitting in a table that was right by the bar so I felt a little awkward. Like I was sitting in a hallway or something. However, I ordered the bone-in filet and it was delicious.

Every thing was great at the restaurant, but I gave it a 3
due to the extra $75 dollars I had to pay when a boot was put on my car tire
It was dark when we arrived and I missed the posted signs in the parking lot
ajoinimg the restaurant.
Open table or Hal's should notify people that this can and will happen
When it does, I will give it a Yes rating

Went Day after Valentines and ate in main level.
It was way too crowded and the tables were too close. All those extra tables-not a good idea. Ruined our experience. Near by customers were also complaining

I guess in an attempt to serve as many people as possible more tables had been added since our last time there. The tables are to close together, which limits the personal space and dining. This also made the noise level higher. The tables are so close together even the servers had trouble getting by and delivering food.

Valentine's dinner was a huge mistake at Hal's. They brought in a whole room full of 2 top tables. The room was crowded and noisy. Seating was so tight the waiters kept bumping into us. We will.probably never go back to Hal's.

Went to Hals for V-Day. Food and wine were great. Waiter was very helpful and attentive even on a busy night. The person who greeted us when we walked in was not very welcoming. This seems to be a common issue as I read other reviews and I guess Hals does not seem interested in dealing with this issue. Although people were smoking at the bar, the air quality was fine. Would definitely go back

Everything was great. Steaks took a long time but waiter acknowledged and gave us dessert on the house.
Filet is top notch.
Seating is a bit tight and noisy to have any business conversation.

I have been going there for over 20 years. They are constantly great from the staff to the food and the environment is second to none. You will not fine a better steak anywhere in Atlanta and their lamb chops are the best. The cost is wonderful for what you get. You may think 56.00 for a bone in filet is high but when you bite into it you will say that is worth every penny and it is. There is only 4 in a cow.

Was a great evening but the noise from the bar area was just too loud. We were seated on the first floor in front of the curtain to an employee space. There were lots of servers passing by our table all night.

This was my first time to Hal’s. I eat at a lot of nice steak houses in my travels. This place is a gem I’m so many aspects. Amazing staff (Scott was our waiter) amazing atmosphere. It’s old, it’s young, it’s classy it’s laid back it is everything I want in a steakhouse.
One thing people need to know (and for me this adds to the greatness) people can smoke inside, the ventilation was great and you don’t really smell anything in the dinner areas. Just amazing I will be back every time I’m in Atlanta. PS . I rarely leave reviews. I felt compelled to leave one for this amazing spot!!

I go to Hal’s regularly. We were not seated until nearly 10:00 for a 8:45 reservation. We were hosting out of town guests and one of them was diabetic which made it uncomfortable for us as they didn’t want to complain to me as the host....but they were not happy.
