Good food, Excellent service!

Stopped while traveling. Food was above average. Our waiter, Zach, is one of the best servers I have had in a very long time. He was friendly, polite and attentive, not only to our table, but every table he served!

Was convenient to hotels next door. Food was great. Friendly staff. We had spaghetti and chicken parmigiana-both perfect. Large portions.

Stuck in Knoxville due to megastorm Jonas. Found Puleo's Grille nearby and it was a great dinner. Server Greg was knowledgeable and prompt. Caesar salad was the first hit on the menu. For all Caesar salad lovers (like me), don't miss this one. Greg told us how all dressings are house-made, and I believe it. A side not to be... More

Stopped in after driving all day. This was a pleasant surprise. Our server was extremely nice and attentive. The food was was good. Nice selection of beer. Wine selection is limited but you can find something. Many TVs if you want to watch sports.

Great place for my office. We have several in our group and Puleos has something for everyone. Service us fast so we get in and out in an hour. The food is good. It is where we go when we can't agree where to go.

On my brother's recommendation we had to stop for the night close to Puleo's on a recent road trip. Lovely atmosphere and great food. We had Palermo Chicken and Chicken Parmesan entrees. Plenty of food and very tasty. A lady across from us had a Brandy Alexander for dessert and it looked so good I just had to have one.... More

Not many people know this but Puleo's Grill has the best Sunday Brunch in Knoxville. Yes, even better than Copper Cellar.

Was travelling cross country solo and stayed at the nearby Best Western. Desk clerk said Puleo's was good, so I decided to try. The menu had me at "Lasagna". It was a very large portion and I probably should not have eaten it all. It was delicious however and my only real meal that day. i would definitely eat there... More

The steak was cooked prefect with good flavor and spice. The service was very good. Would have given a 5 if the bread was better.
