GOOD STEAKS, BUT EXPENSIVE

The food is good, but it is over priced. The staff are friendly, courteous, and provide excellent service. We have never eaten anything other than the steaks and have no complaints about the quality, flavor, portion size, or cooking and presentation. But when in Helen and we want steak, this is... read more

My wife and I always eat here when we stay in Helen. The food is pricey but so is everything else in Helen as is to be expected in a tourist area. They have great steaks and friendly staff. I love the bread loaf they bring out first. We will keep eating here when we visit

Our party of 4 adults and 3 children ate dinner here on Sunday evening. It is quite expensive, but the servings were generous enough that we shared plates. We had the seafood platter and the steak and both were delicious. This was certainly better than a burger after traveling all day! The waiter was friendly, the food was delicious, and... More

We visited Paul's this evening with the hopes of having a nice family meal. At check-in we were told that our "party of 5 WITH A WHEELCHAIR" would have a wait of 60 minutes. We thought, "what the heck, we'll wait." WRONG CHOICE. There were numerous people waiting on the bench, with parties just as large as ours, that were... More

The food was good and I enjoyed it but definitely not worth the price. The sirloin had much to be desired but the ribs were great.

WE visited on a very busy Saturday night and was seated almost immediately. We were greeted by our waitress promptly and she had a great attitude. Food was ready very fast and was delicious! I am very picky about restaurants but this place performed much better than most restaurants I have eat at. The only complaint I would have would... More

I really think this place is over price. I wasn't to happy about how the food tasted...I got the Crab Stuffed Broiled Flounder and it just didn't tasted fresh but the rice pilaf was good. The wait stuff was good and stayed on top of our drinks.
