Southern US meets Italy

This restaurant serve some unique dishes that are a fusion of Southern US and Italian dishes. It's a little pricy but worth it. Some dishes tend to be a little bland for me, but they will "kick it up a notch" if you just tell them.

We ordered the artichoke dip with queso to start. It was pretty good with the chips. I'd give it 5/10. My date ordered a caesar salad. it was SO oily and fishy, literally inedible. 2/10. I ordered a scallop picatta. It was okay, the flavor wasn't awesome though, 4/10. my date ordered a boursin beef steak, which was thoroughly enjoyed... More

Once again, Puleo's shows why that their Shrimp and Grits are Low Country worthy. The sauce is especially good, grits good and moist and their Crab and Shrimp Dip was just as good.

My husband and I went here to enjoy a dinner for two without the kids. Disappointed that they sat us in the bar to start off the evening. (I wish they would ask if you wanted to sit in the bar before taking you the table.) We weren't seated far from the hostess station where 5 hostesses conversed and played... More

I was in town on business and found Puleo's near the airport. It was an early Saturday evening and it was still quiet, so I was able to be seated right away. I ordered a Fat Tire draft ($3) that came in an iced mug that started off the meal in a nice way. After looking over their menu and... More

The title says it all. This place has gone downhill fast. We ate here last year and the food wasn't too bad but this time it was horrible. The inside needs to be renovated. It has a bad musty smell. Will never be back.

A nice causal restaurant. The menu is varied so most people can certainly find something they like. This was the first time we had eaten at this one and the service was good.

I would normally rate Puleo's a 4 star because in the past we really enjoyed their ribeyes and Caesar salad, etc. And we went fairly often. The last two times we have visited, the steaks were not as high quality beef and were not as good as we would like. You pay a premium price here for a queen's [$22]... More

We had Calamari which was great. My wife had the Shroud? Fish and that was good. My king filet was a disappointment. I ordered it anywhere between med. rare and medium. I always do that because nobody can really peg a medium steak. It was a nice sized steak but was very rare when it came to the table. I... More
