“Simply the Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2012

Since my last review, i have returned a couple of times, and it's just the best steak in town, and beyond!
Cooked to perfection every time, and full of succulent flavor! The Bread Pudding is divine. Service is always good, and James is still the maestro of the valet! No trip to Atlanta is complete without a stop at Hal's.
Great place, never disappoints, just simply the best!

“Consistently outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2012

Whenever I want a great steak in Atlanta, my default is Hals. I have eaten at all of the big name steak houses in Atlanta and Hals can't be beat. A Bombay martini, chopped salad and creamed spinach rounds out a meal that leaves me in ecstasy. . The tables are a little close together and the bar is a distraction, but settle back and enjoy the food. You will never be disappointed.

“Incredible Filet,impeccable service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2011

The 12oz.Filet was 5star,cooked to perfection.The escargot appetizer is a must order.The garlic toast was served hot and went great with the chopped salad.The wine prices are manageable and the wine list is excellent.Reservations are a must,this place is very popular.We sat inside;however,you might want to try the balcony dining.I would definitely give this place another visit.The owner's New Orleans heritage is reflected in a positive way.

“Up to the hype”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2011

Places that are hyped often leave me feeling wanting more. Hals largely lived up the reputation. Wonderful steak, great service. The only thing that was a bit surprising was the way they packed the tables and people in. Are they trying to create an ambiance or cram a few more tickets into the nights receipts? . I'd go back.
