Pork tenderloin and ginger gravy was very good. Crab stuffed flounder tasted bland and had a texture like it had been frozen. Service was good, but atmosphere seemed really casual for what was priced as fine dining. There is an attached night club and outdoor karaoke so it was noisy dining.

Was looking forward to this visit, unfortunately we were disappointed, the food was okay, the location is lovely, but the restaurant lacked soul, there was no atmosphere, it was stark and bare in places, the food was basic, it was such a shame,

When they had their weekly all-u-can-eat prime rib, shrimp & crab leg specials the service, food were above average but not great & the prices were reasonable. Since they've discontinued these dinner specials their over priced food has a lot to be desired & service has also declined.

We walked over to Paul's Steakhouse one evening and had an awesome Grilled Prime Rib that was cooked to perfection. It was tender and juicy and cooked just the way we ordered it. The waiter wasn’t all that great but the food was fantastic. Paul's Steakhouse is located right on the Chattahoochee River and you can watch people tube by.

I had the scallops friends had fried seafood platter and lobster. They were all big servings and very tasty. My husband ordered a steak which he was not pleased with.

Food is overpriced and lacks flavor and quality to say the least. Only good thing about this place was the service. If you're watching what you eat, save your calories for somewhere worth it!

The facility was average. Expected fine dining. The food was good, but over priced. The bar behind the restaurant was very nice. Great view.

What a relief to find this restaurant! We arrived on a Sat. night. You can choose to sit inside or outside with the live music! We were seated by the window so we could enjoy the view of the babbling brook and lights of Helen, Ga. The service was fast and excellent! The prices are about what you would expect... More

Starter was a $8 prefrozen mozzarella sticks. Main was a medium well sirloin. It was flavored well but that is the only nice thing I can say. It was chewy and had worm like strings of fat. Disgusting. Spent fifty dollars on this crap of a meal. We went to Cowboys and Angels the next day and had top notch... More
