We were looking forward to a return visit to T. Paul's after our trip here several years ago. The wait staff was great. Friendly, helpful and attentive. We were disappointed in the food. Cajun pasta tasted overly sweet and the Cajun quesadilla did not have much flavor. Even the carrot cake, which blew us away last visit, was just OK.... More

We came with a group of 11. They don't cater to large groups but were able to accommodate us in the back room. Our orders were taken quickly but the service was slow as was our drink refills because they became busy shortly after we arrived. Everyone's meal was good, gluten free bread was offered, hubby and my fish taco... More

I had an amazing grilled cheese sandwich here recently. Cream cheese seemed to be the secret. Although the Albacore tuna, nuts, green apple, and other cheese could be some of the goodness factor! I am not a fan of the decor, and funky I guess describes it. The French onion soup was a slight miss, just not enough flavor, desserts... More

T Paul's Café is an experience in itself. A décor that's hard to explain other than maybe something taken fro the 60's era added to just plain Oregon Funk. The menu has several items you'll want to try put you will have to settle for just one. So, go back next time because for sure you will want to

They posted this saying on their menu outside: Eat well, laugh often, love much. They are really going to help you with the "eat well" part. We had an excellent dinner here, with great service from our waitress, Faith. We opted for two items from their Specials menu - Vodka Penne Pasta with clams, salmon and prawns and Surf &... More

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
