The food was fairly standard. The service was prompt. Reasonable value if you're looking for a quick meal for the family.

Very good food, I got the fish tacos and they were excellent as were the onion straws. The service was great. It seemed very clean in there which I liked.

This is an excellent pitstop on the way to Gatlinburg. The menu has something for everyone. I enjoyed the chicken piccata. Very tasty. There was so many choices I know that next time I may try the philly sandwich or the margherita pizza. I have a picky kid and she enjoyed her meal.

I had dinner here last night. My favorite meal is their prime rib with the mashed sweet potatoes. They are always very good. I sat at the bar watching the NCAA basketball tournament game. The service from the bartender (Kelly) was excellent.

My wife and I left an activity after church. We were looking for a good place for dinner. I wanted Italian specifically. After several options, we decided on Puleo’s Grille because of its diverse meal selection. Puleo’s Grille showcases several awards of excellence: “Best Overall Restaurant and Best New Restaurant honors in East & Middle Tennessee.” Yet, I know that... More

huge menu selection for whatever mood you may be in. Large portions and the food is always good but never just over the top great. Always a good place to go when you want good comfort food. I love the turkey dinner. I like how the staff does not rush you through to flip a table like most places do... More

What a treat. The food here is great and the service was very nice. Jennifer is pleasant, knowledgeable, and attentive. The chicken parmesan was crisp, and the Nona's sauce was tasty on the rigatoni. The happy hour price reduction on the wine was an added benefit,
