I love this restaurant. The food is delicious and the service is usually good. I usually get the quesadillas or a sandwich and it is a must to get dessert. I love T's Carrot Cake and the Chocolate Hunk Cake. YUM! I don't live in Astoria anymore, but when I visit, T Paul's is the first place I want to... More

Well, you'll get one at T paul's, and you'll get a nice friendly staff as an added bonus, but if you already visited T paul's supper club - you know this one won't disappoint.

The T. Paul Steak Salad was very good -- though given the prices it was annoying to have to order at a counter. The menu is extensive with many inviting options. The decor was more corny-funky -- lots of quotes here and there, some clever and some trite. It was a drop-dead gorgeous day in Astoria and we were fortunate... More

Funky atmosphere, but a bit dark, in the restaurant. You order at the counter and a waitress brings you your order. Do you tip the waitstaff then? I didn't feel like I needed to because it was our only contact. Grilled Salmon sandwich and the Thai Shrimp pasta were good. There was too much sauce on the pasta but fresh... More

We followed Tripadvisor's reviews which led us to this little funky place. We needed a little dessert and thought we'd try it out after reading one of the reviewers comments about the carrot cake. Hubby had the carrot cake and I got the lemon shaker pie. Our thought was we would share each. We each enjoyed ours so much we... More

Food was good & tasty, but a little heavy (sauces on pasta). Not bad though. Shaker Lemon Pie was awesome. Waitress was very helpful, friendly & great.

What a neat place. It had a homey, friendly environment. While we were here, they had a live banjo band. Folks were singing along. We had a BBQ quesadilla and a bay shrimp quesadilla. Both were tasty and reasonably priced. We had the cobbler for dessert but it was 'okay'. I prefer and crunchy crumble topping and this was more... More

The food is innovative and very tasty, the staff is wonderful and the place itself is pretty durn cute. Eat here. We have never been disappointed, and have eaten here a LOT in the past almost 10 years we've lived in Astoria.

The menu is reasonably wide-ranging, the preparation is relatively predictable, the portions are huge, the facilities are very clean, the service is small-town familiar, so why only 2 stars? For precisely those reasons. My wife and I had visited this establishment when it went by a different name - quite devoted to fish, slightly up-scale, mature, thoughtful and I've been... More

Its where we go when we want a nice, affordable lunch, always just a little different. A great place to take visiting friends, with a varied menu. Unpretentious, personable owners and wait staff.
