Is there a best time of the day to go to the bank for halves or anything for that matter?

In my experience, no--other than 15 minutes before closing time. There are far to many variables to consider--branch policies, attitudes of branch employees, short staffing (shortage of tellers on any given day), geographic location (suburban Seattle vs Custer City, Oklahoma), etc., etc. Get to know your bank/branch--build personal relationships.

Don't know the best time, but do know the worst time - whenever I go.

I will just go ahead and say that lunchtime is the worst, regardless of what business you have there. Everyone goes at lunch it seems, because the drive-thru is backed up and the queue inside is coming out the lobby door. This just means anything you need from them will just be another annoying hurried task for them to do.

Mid-morning has always been the least busy time when I need to go to my Credit Union.

I suggest AM - when the tellers are not thinking about lunch or about going home, Maybe an hour after opening

These two responses are exactly what I was going to suggest. Many banks employ "staggered" shifts during the week... by the time an hour has passed, everyone other than part-time employees is there. 10-10:30 am local time is usually a good time because it is also before the lunch hour rush.

This is also very important. Bank employees move branch to branch (and even bank to bank) a lot... if you run into a difficult employee, by having these relationships already in place, you usually can get around them.
