Paul's service and food.

Food was average and service was slow. Server forgot part of the order and steak was not cooked properly and had to send food back once.

Ate here tonight (5/21/15) with my wife; had prime rib with grizzle, but cooked to the correct temp. Added shrimp was very good, but the only vegetable choice besides potatoes were smoky green beans which we sent back. Added salad was large, but onions were very strong (didn't want to kiss her afterward). Salad, soup, entrée (1 of each) plus... More

Maybe it was a bad day but this was not a very good meal. I looked forward to a good steak but for the price I paid for the piece of meat I got...well, let's just say I won't be back. My husband was not too thrilled with his food either. The service was just okay and we were one... More

We started with a dozen oysters- they were honestly the worst we've ever had! I had NY strip-- over priced not to mention that I've had better steak at Waffle House!! My date had the scallops-- also overpriced and tasted terrible!! That and two glasses of wine and one beer and our check was $93.00!!! How this place stays in... More

Had a prime rib & it was so very good. The green beans were seasoned very good{!!! Matter a fact it was so good we went back next night for another wonderful dinner. The view of the river flowing & quiet atmosphere was just what we needed to end our day with. Highly recommend this place!!!

We had a great meal of the prime rib special. The service was great and everyone there was very friendly and checking to see if we needed anything else.

Have eaten here many times, but was surprised at their new pricing. Used to have specials, but the server told us they no longer do that. Meals come with choice of potato, rice and/or green beans. side salad is $5 for a tiny bowl that is the size of a dessert bowl. I Had the fried shrimp and it was... More

We nearly got sick eating at this restaurant. The service was awful and the food was worse. Paul's Margarita Deck in the back of the business is great but not the restaurant.

Came to Helen for a combined birthday celebration - looked forward to a nice dinner. Went to Paul's looking for this. The fried oysters were ok - I ordered the ribs and they arrived cold. Should have sent them back but the whole atmosphere of the restaurant left us wanting to get out and back to our hotel. Could use... More
