Our meals were so delicious, from Hal's signature rib eye steak to the duck. Service was excellent. Hal's is an old-school type restaurant; very noisy in an energetic way. Very pricey, so be prepared to spend plenty. Great for a special occasion dinner.

Amazing steak and atmosphere. One of the top steaks in Atlanta or anywhere else for that matter! Great ambiance especially upstairs at the bar.

I enjoy the food at Hal’s and the service is exceptional when they are not busy! But they have always been busy when I’ve visited. I would definitely make sure to make reservations before heading over for dinner. The Trout Almandine with Pasta is my...More

Our group of 12 had dinner here in this traditional, classy steakhouse. We sat upstairs near the bar area and were delighted with the service and food. The dirty martinis were perfect as well as the appetizers, main entree (filet) and sides. A wonderful establishment...More

I ordered the bone-in 14 ounce filet that’s not on the menu with mashed potatoes, and my son, a student at Georgia Tech, ordered the regular fillet with a side of pasta. All of the food was fabulous! The steaks were prepared to perfection. The...More
