Not bad

Our server was great. Super helpful and very friendly and honest about the food....which was good but overpriced. Fantastic view but would probably only come back for lunch.

The first thing I noticed when I walked into this restaurant was that it reminded me of a bowling alley. The decor was falling apart, the carpet was old and stained and, most notably, you walked into an overwhelming smell of cigarette smoke. There is a separate area that allows smoking, the "Lounge". I don't know why they bothered, it... More

Helen is a small town with a Bavarian village appearance. Paul's steakhouse has everything from steaks to seafood. Meals r a bit pricey but very good and the restaurant sits right on the Chattahooche River.

We had the 28.00 All you can eat Crab Legs. They were wonderful and well worth the money. The food was just as good as the crab legs on the coast. The interior was very inviting and we were seated next to the window. We had a beautiful view of the river.

First, the lady who seated us was very nice, friendly, and helpful. However, it went rapidly downhill from there. Our server was Mr. ZERO personality who, after taking our order and bringing our food, never stopped at our table to ask us if we needed anything or to ask how things were until we had finished our meal and he...

The lobster bisque tasted like it came straight out of a can, and the calamari could have been cardboard covered in marinara. Our waitress was great and the view is beautiful, so if that is what you are looking for this is the place for you.

Although the flavor of my husband's steak was good and my fish was moist and not over cooked. The rest of the meal and the veggies were below average. This restaurant came highly rated. I would not return.

The restaurant itself is drab and rundown on the inside. The food was just okay but not very memorable considering the prices they are charging. I got the crab cakes. Honestly, I would have been happier with the food at a chain restaurant and would have been charged less. The servers were friendly though. I would recommend skipping this place.

I enjoy Paul's because of the ribs are always tender with a delicious flavor. The price is a little high especially for a rack of ribs at the tune of $27. However, The entrees come with salad and side. Also, A nice bread loaf is brought to the table. A couple of negatives: the salads are lacking as they are... More
