It is hard for me to figure out on how a place like this still stays open. The parking lot is hard to get into and it is not because of it being busy. but rope off and planned out wrong. There was only about a forth of the tables taken, but we had to wait an hour to get... More

We went to Paul's for lunch because we wanted to eat food billed as Indian food on our visit to Cherokee. We were not disappointed. To go local, I ordered the Indian taco, which was a generous taco salad on a decent size piece of Indian fry bread. Delicious! Service was good and our waitress was personable and accommodating, and... More

This was my first trip to Cherokee and first time at Paul's. It was pretty crowded for lunch even during the off-season and parking is limited. We were seated quickly and there was only a short wait after ordering. Their hamburgers are homemade and delicious. The menu also has several local cuisine options and make sure to check for daily...

Service was terrible, my food was cold and I think the mashed potatoes were from the day before one big lump, cold, got a chicken back and leg (pan fried chicken special). So gross. Husband had worst fry bread ever. Last year it was good - told the owner it was not good and he didn't say 'sorry' or anything!'... More

First time at Paul's! Atmosphere was friendly as well as staff. Food was very good as well as their dessert selection. Dine inside or chose a table on front porch. On a cold day, I opted for homemade veggie soup and cornbread - an excellent choice!

My husband and i both got a 1/4 cheeseburger and mozzarella sticks to share. They were both delicious!!! The service was very quick! Not many places to eat in Cherokee. We were glad to support the Locals!

When we went service was terrible and we placed our order directly because the waitress was to busy. The quality was average, not anything to write home about. We would not return rather would try a different restaurant and expect better service and food

We arrived just before closing but with a smile we were given a table. The special was sold out, as stated we arrived at closing, but the menu was terrific and our meal the same! Grace was very nice and took great care of us while trying to do her closing work. We can't wait to try it again early... More

Paul's Restaurant is a great place to eat in Cherokee, NC. In addition to traditional fare, they offer some different choices such as Indian Tacos, fry bread (my favorite!), rabbit, bison, and more. You can eat inside or outside on their covered porch. While some businesses close during the winter in Cherokee, Paul's stays open year-round. A great family place... More
