It had good reviews, therefore I thought it would be good. But the Philly cheese-steak was bland. Maybe the waitress forgot the sauce (if there's any)... but eww... was really bland and tasteless. Disappointed to say the least.

Family diner, lots of seniors. Excellent service by servers, just OK by bussers and helpers. Serving people seem to know a lot of customers, lots of laughing and smiles. Food is good, fresh baked goods.

We often have guests at Serenity Gardens B&B who are looking for a nice American dinner at a reasonable price so we give them directions to Paul's Place. Folks always return very happy with the food, service and prices.

Love the home town feel and the new steak fries. Something for everyone at anytime of day. My daughter always orders the french toast for dinner with a salad on the side.

The food portions was large but the pricing and the quality of food to include temperature of food was a major let down. The carrott cake was also barely adequate. We had the ribs and the fish. The fish was... More

I always get the same thing at paul's; the crispy chicken salad. Last time it was great with fresh lettuce, fresh bacon, freshly grated cheese and good fried chicken strips chopped up. This time I got "bag" lettuce that was old dry, and wilty with bland unrip tomatoes, pregrated bag cheese that had only a bitter freezer burn taste which... More

I love this place! I started coming here when my boyfriend moved to the area and we have been regulars ever since. I don't think my boyfriend, his dad, or I have ever have ever been disappointed in a meal. I highly recommend the split pea soup on Wednesdays and the Italian Bomb and pecan pies. The staff is friendly... More
