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

The restaurant is nice looking but the food was not good. The prices were high for the quality of food. Also I hate when waitors stand around watching you eat, ugh.

Locals recommended Paul's to us so we tried it. Got a large seafood platter that we were able to share because the portion was large. But the seafood was greasy and lacked flavor. The service was great and being seated by the river was nice but the food experience did not match what we paid for it.

Bad table by the check out counter-- had a line of people standing right at our table for a good portion of our meal, server more concerned with rage party near us than us, over priced for what we got. Out of italian dressing for the worlds smaller salad. No drink re-fills--- went to the cowboy place and was pleased.... More
