Very Good

Always good food when I eat here for lunch order. Excellent service and food is always prepared as advertised. Wine list is moderate both in price and selection. The prime rib special is a good value. A return trip is planned.

Did a quick take out -- spaghetti and meatballs and house salad. Reasonably priced, comparable to Olive Garden. Bread is good, salad is good.

This place was recommended by the Best Western receptionist who gave us a 10% off coupon. We had the fried green tomatoes for an appetizer and this is almost a meal in itself. Our server, Voss, was pleasant and attentive. My wife enjoyed the eggplant parmesan and I had Shrimp & grits, one of their specialties. Neither of us could... More

Delicious pizzas, fried green tomatoes and fish tacos. But cracker coated fish was so very greasy it was not edible.

I've eaten here several times and have never had a bad meal. I have picky kids and they're always happy as well, which tends to sway where we eat as a family. Anything with steak has always been great, and the lasagna is very good as well. Not cheap but not fine-dining expensive.

conflating several visits, Puleo's always served and presented well prepared meals. More a good service for the hungry than a dining experience; good when the food is not needed as a catalyst for conversation.

The Caesar salad is the best anywhere! Impossible to find a better one. But the prime rib is extremely mediocre... Cold, full of fat, and not as good as you get at a cheap buffet establishment. Problem is the price is competitive with high end restaurants. And... when the manager asked how things are, he really didn't want to hear,... More

Overnight in Knoxville and hotel recommended Puleo's. We know great Italian food and our dinner choices of Chicken and Eggplant Parm were so delicious. Side of kale for me wasn't a disappointment either. Yum and yum. Coming through Knoxville next week and will return.

Great food and service. They were really slow since it was Super Bowl Sunday. We had very quick service. I had the eggplant parmesan and sweet tea. It all was great. My family members had the shrimp and grits and both LOVED it. It's a little pricy but you truly get what you pay for which is great food, service,... More
