This is one of the few places to eat while in the main area of the Cherokee. Prepare your self for horrible service and food. The Indian taco mentioned in the other reviews is basically bad ground beef and tasteless salsa over a fried donut. The service was also horrible. We wanted to sit outside but there was a sign...

Had the trout and hush puppies--just how I remember they should be. Tender and flavorfull. Substituted sweet potato fries which were wonderful. No room for fresh baked cakes or pies. Seattle's best coffee was nice surprise. Comfort food in Cherokee North Carolina. Reasonably priced. Slept like a baby.

My family had lunch at Paul's recently. It was very crowded. In fact, my husband stayed outside and grabbed a table while I went in to tell them we were there (that's what the sign said to do...). We were waited on fairly quickly, but it did take a long time to get the food. My husband had the trout,... More

Great little restaurant. Prices are good. Nothing fancy just good food. Been here three times on different visits. You can get good homecooking food and some local favorites. Indian taco's are good. There is parking in the back, front always seems to be full, locals eat here as well.

We went there when we were on vacation. There was a great selection on the menu. The trout was great and they had awesome specials. Our waitress was extremely helpful.

This restaurant infuriated my family on a very personal level. Not sure how the place remains open. The waitstaff was incredibly rude, and our questions were unwelcome. To understand how rude they are, here's a little story: My son has an allergy to all seafood and selfish. He's lived with it since he was 4 years old (now 17), and... More

The service at night is horrible. Both times we have been we have waited for over an hour for our food ...and they got the orders wrong. We even waited until after the rush to see if service would be better. Nope, it was not. Management seems not to care and they do not apologize. So we will never set... More

The service and food are great! Parking is sparse. Their desserts, especially the lemon berry and coconut cakes are fantastic!!!
