We stopped here while travelling to Florida and our motel recommended this place for dinner. The next best alternative was Cracker Barrel so we opted for Puleo,s. They have a surprising variety of food from steak to seafood to pizza to Italian specialties like lasagna. Food and drinks were reasonably priced and quality was quite acceptable. We split a Premier... More

We were happy to see that Puleo's Grille was still open at 10:15 when we arrived in town after a long day of traveling. In fact, it was quite busy for that time of the night. Our entrees consisted of a ribeye steak with shrimp, spaghetti and meatballs, and a ravioli dish. Each was prepared well and was filling, so... More

We had a very nice meal at a reasonable price. It was recommended at the hotel. Convenient to our hotel. Would eat here again when in the area.

We stopped here for dinner traveling through from SC. My wife and I are GF and they had a new GF menu with attractively priced options. The food was good and my kids loved the kids menu options. My only complaint was that the GF menu did not indicate a premium pricing for choosing asparagus as a side dish. That... More

Please don't waste your time or money at this place. It would be better spent at SAMs club on a slice of pizza. Our salads showed up after the entrees therefore we had to choose over which to eat. The prime rib was clearly missing the "prime". Just a very fatty piece of steak. The scallops were dry tough and... More

After travelling all day we picked Puleos for a relaxing dinner and we weren't disappointed. We were greeted with a friendly smile by both the hostess and our fantastic server Charlotte. I had scallops in Italian herb butter sauce on grits with provolone cheese. I wasn't sure I'd like the combination but it was delicious and I almost wanted to... More

A good place to stop while traveling, Puleo's at exit 398 was convenient to our hotel. A feel of a chain (think Romano's Macaroni Grill), but higher prices (drinks were a bit high, at $8 for a manhattan and $10 for a decent bourbon), but the food was better. Medium-priced entrees, wine and a piece of cake to go afterwards:... More

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.

Had lunch at the Puleo's Grille on February 28, 2015. Waiter John provided exceptional friendly service. Sirloin steak with baked potato was perfect.We also had as an appetizer: the Fried Green Tomatoes with grits and sauce. I must say the appetizer proved to be the best I have had in some time.Puleo's has improved their friendly service, quality of food.... More
