I must admit we've been going to Helen for over 15 years and this was the first time in Paul's. It was wonderful. Waitress was great even though she had several tables of very picky people. She kept her smile on. Our food was very good. It could use a little updating in the interior but we weren't there for... More

I would like to say that I enjoyed my meal and the server and atmosphere . My steak was cooked perfectly and very reasonably priced. Will definitely eat there again the next time I visit. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for good food.

Price of the steak was too much for the quality. Could have been so much nicer by the river but it needs painting and fixing up a lot! It is dark and needs atmosphere, so a little music at least with a candle on the table. Just like an outdated road side restaurant.

Went to Paul's on recommendation of co-worker. The prime rib my husband had was excellent. Wish I had gotten it instead of the Cajun flounder. At least one of us was pleased.

Great Ribeye, Great Manhattan, Friendly Service, AND one of the only places open during weekday in Helen winter season!

Been on New Years eve and it was packed, I don't know what it looks like on a non holiday. The food was great and plentiful, got stuffed with good bread even before fish entree came. The server was polite. Pick a seat by the window, it's nicer.

The steak was tender and delicious but the wait was long to get the food. Very nice next to the river.

My husband and I decided to stop in for a drink. In their defense it was December 23rd but the lights were super bright, the music wasn't great and was bear audible. We ordered 2 glasses of Pino Noir and it was so terrible that I couldn't finish. I doubt we would go back again. Also, this is a smoking... More

We eat here at Paul's for a pre-wedding dinner. My brother was getting married and we decided to eat here. The place was nice and clean. The service was great and the food was fresh and delicious. The only problem with it is that it can be a bit pricey depending on what you get and the amount. Some things... More
