Fair but expensive

We took our grand kids for lunch after visiting the Indian Village and everyone said it was great!, well I would not go that far. It was OK, not bad at all, but nothing makes it standout as being excellent. It is local owned and operated. We paid 46$ including the tip for 2 kids meals, 2 wild... read more

On my first visit to Cherokee, I looked for a restaurant for dinner. On the side of town near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the pickings are rather slim. I chose Paul's and I have to say that I regret it. When I was seated I was asked if I'd like something to drink. I asked for a glass... More

The worst dining experience I've ever had. Waitress was rude, food was horrible. And on top of that we were overcharged. Will never go back and will tell everyone going to Cherokee not to eat there. Only reason I would go back is to give the waitress a piece of my mind. Which I should have done when we were... More

This was the worse place I have ever been to in my life.. the worse service, the worse food and ended up getting cheated out of $$ as well. I wouldn't send my enemies there.

We took our grandson to Pauls for dinner after a busy day in Cherokee. The place was busy and noisy. AC could not keep up so we were uncomfortably warm. Grandma wanted elk burger, but they had none so she settled for beef. It was pretty good, but not what she wanted. I had a trout dinner which was pretty... More

We went to Paul's for lunch and got fast, friendly service. Two in my party got the elk burger and loved it. I got the hamburger on fry bread and it was fantastic. Everything was fresh and well-prepared. I saw the review from someone who said they did not have a kid's menu, but they do! It's displayed on the... More

This place has the best breakfast! Locals and tourists alike come to this restaurant. It is reasonably priced, clean, fast service, and friendly staff. The place was packed and we had to be put on a waiting list. But we only had to wait about 5 minutes and we were seated and our order taken quickly. When we recieved our... More

We enjoyed a lunch on the outside porch facing the road down the street in Cherokee, NC from the Smokey Mt. National Park. Inside looked big too and lots of diners at all hours. Their hamburg was good and service very pleasant.

Ate Father's day dinner here. We had simple fair, not very difficult, and is was passable, but the little things made it a bad experience. They ran out of sour cream for a baked potato. They brought out extra "butter" in exchange, but it was some whipped cream oleo sort of stuff. Simple fair not in the best presentation with... More
