Wonderful dinner at Paul Martin's

Loved Paul Martin's American Bistro! Upscale, yet relaxed atmosphere and friendly, attentive service. The food is outstanding - all members of our party enjoyed their selections. I loved my hangar steak Cobb salad - the house made vinegarette was fabulous!

I took ten people here for lunch recently, and we had an awesome lunch. Service was great, and food was delicious. I had shredded pork enchilada, and it was delicious.

Had a very pleasant dinner here last night. The place is always busy for a reason. We both had really good cedar plank salmon after oyster appetizers. The oysters were superb even though it wasn't a month with an "R". Our waitress was excellent. Attentive, knowledgable, efficient and friendly. The final bill was high in my view but we did... More

My husband and I eat here for Sunday dinner. We ordered the prime rib 3 course dinner which is only offered on Sundays. The quality was very good for the price. Adam was our server and he was excellent. The atmosphere is good for couples, families, and business meals. On the weekends, the parking is free in the parking garage... More

My friend took me and my sister here for lunch. I ordered the special beef dish they recommended and it was delicious. The service was also very good. I enjoyed the meal to the very last piece of everything.

One of our sons took my husband & I, our children & in-laws & our grandchildren to Paul Martin's for our 40th anniversary dinner. We were a party of 10 adults, 2 teenagers & 4 children between the ages of 8-10 yrs. old. We all loved the Salt & Pepper Shrimp with Pesto Aioli. Crispy & Delicious! The best I've... More

brought 13 ladies from my lunch group here for the second time last week. Upon arrival, they showed us to a long table in the back of the restaurant. It was so dark that I could not see anything, and had to borrow a flashlight to read the menu. When you have a large group, you want to talk. Having... More

In town again, and invited some friends to meet us at Paul Martin's for lunch yesterday (5/5). We can always count on getting a good meal, and good service here. That is the precise reason why we keep returning. And that's what happened. Our food was delicious. A friend and I had the "Vegetable Pasta" ( it was perfect), the... More
