Very crowded and very loud. Good food and service but very expensive. Better restaurants in Atlanta for the cost at Hals. Old nostalgic Buckhead place but I think its been way outdone. Wouldn't recommend.

My family and I were very impressed with Hal's. We had a rather large group and they were very accommodating. Calamari for an appetizer was perfect. Very light and fried to perfection. I had veal Marsala which was tender, and had the perfect amount of sauce. I ordered angel hair pasta with garlic and oil in the side, which was... More

Excellent food and service at one of Buckhead's favorite hangouts. We had the Sea Bass last night and it was delicious, wonderfully prepared and presented. Service is prompt and professional. Hal's is a lively place most nights with a crowded bar scene so it's not quiet but has lots of upbeat energy- a great place for just a drink or... More

Very pleasant atmosphere, staff is very attentive, chargrilled oysters best I've had outside New Orleans. My filet oscar had the best flavor and so tender. The bourbon bread pudding is a must to top the meal off, portions are large so plan on sharing desert.

Split the 20 ounce bone-in rib-eye with my husband and it melted in your mouth. An unusual side is Pasta and homemade marinara. Light and full of flavor. Topped off with Cheesecake. Classic and fabulous. Next time in Atlanta, we will return.

I'm not a huge steak person, but my best friend is, and a friend who lives in the area recommended Hal's... The atmosphere was neat... Men in suits smoking cigars at the bar while having a cocktail. Dim lighting. Amazing staff. My friend had a steak and said it was one of the best she has ever had. I had... More

Service was excellent. Steak was cold. I did not send it back because I did not want to disrupt my business discussion. Tasty but cold.

Thank Jeff G
