Unbelievably we ate here even after the hostess required a drivers license in exchange for the pager as the restaurant was on a wait. I have personally never experienced that! Food was horribly over priced. We ordered the prime rib. It was prepared well and tasted fine. This came with a limp salad and preportioned boring dressing. The potato was... More

The owner was a very nice person. The staff were equally as nice, The service was good and the meal was great. Could not ask for better. The only thing we were sorry about was that we waited until our last evening in Helen, Ga. to try this place.

My family and I ate here recently on a trip to Helen. It overlooks the river where you can see tubers coming down the river if you eat fairly early. The menu was pretty typical "tourist food". However, on two nights a week they have snow crab legs. I know it is Sunday and I think the other day is... More

The restaurant overlooks the river, so the view is GREAT!!! The waitress was very good, the steaks were was very good. The Margarita spot behind them, owned by them too, was a nice place to drink, wait, watch tv, and karaoke until a table came open. The night spot, also owned by them, next door sounded like it was a... More

We eat here every time we are in Helen. Steaks are delicious, you don't even need steak sauce. Go early if you don't want to wait. Staff is always friendly and suggests things to see/do every time.

We had a party of nine- friends and family. The service was good. The food okay, nothing special. We had mahi-mahi, ribs, prime rib, chicken, pork, beef tips, wings, and shrimp. Everyone said their food was good, not outstanding though. However; the lobster bisque was really good. The decor and ambience could use some work. We came away full but... More

This is the first time eating here and let me tell you, we had the ribs and they were even better then mine and mine are great. The service was wonderful, we had a server named Eric and he was the best. Everyone was so sweet and helpful. We will always eat at Paul's when we come back to Helen,... More

Great little place to dine and unwind. House band is very good and play a variety of music from beach to blues. This is one place that has it all.

Seated at five requested a window table...back in a corner. Minimal draft beer, cold bottled was great! Salads very in the cooler, slightly limp, bread was very nice, two people we got two pieces of butter. We had not gotten half way through the salad when the main meal was brought. Fried shrimp with steak fries looked and tasted very... More
