“What's Old is New Again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Paul's has been a main fixture in Annapolis for many years. The family that owns it goes back before the area on West Street started to enjoy a rebirth of its own. We went over the recent holidays with a group of 14 and the food, service and facilities could NOT have been nicer. There is a lot of traditional Annapolis type foods served here, such as the Crab Cakes, and there is also a slight slant towards Greek food, as well. What could be better? Our guests enjoyed everything from the appetizers to the dessert and everything in between. It is not an inexpensive to visit, but it is NOT outrageous, either. If you are looking for a really good white table cloth meal, served in a lovely setting by a very knowledgeable and attentive staff, Paul's should be on your short list.

“No tuna for us!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

We asked for a Grilled Tuna item and Grilled Tuna Liguine ($13) but they were out of Tuna ( Rats ) so had the Grilled Salmon greek salad and chicken liguine($10) . I forgot to order aldente pasta and it came well done -which is a very no-no (listen to the TV Dr. O show). I asked the waitress and Paul's, like many other places,cook the pasta beforehand so pasta aldente is not available. The grilled salmon greek salad was ok, nothing special. Halfway through the meal we were asked if we wanted bread , said yes. That was nice, don't know if it came with the meal or she was treating us nice. The place was crowded so they must be dong OK but no TUNA for us.

“A Local Annapolis Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

It's so nice to see the many locally owned restaurants in Annapolis. Pauls' Homewood Café is one of them -- and it has been around for quite a while. They say they do traditional Mediterranean cuisine and I would agree but more of the eastern Mediterranean, closeer to the Ionain Sea. Translation -- Greek influence. And everything they do is terrific. Just close your eyes and point. You will not be disappointed. Also, their wine list is great. Many California Central Coast wines, too.

“Excellent Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

We had a wonderful meal here. The food was great. We had the lamb chops and a Greek variety plate. Everything was delicious from the salad dressing to the bread to the entrees. Our server, Brian, was professional yet friendly and helpful. He had the perfect ability to be efficient and helpful without hovering. You must visit this restaurant whenever you are in Annapolis.

“Paul's Chef's Choices are fine dining quality at exceptional prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Paul's is a mainstay in the Annapolis area. The ambiance is pleasant and the service crew is driven to providing customers top notch customer service. The meal selections are comparable to higher end restaurants but the main courses come with side items that are excellently paired on your plate where you normally have to select as pricey side items at other brand name restaurants. They also offer a good selection of wines and cocktails. If you're into a happy hour frame of mind, their bar and lounge area provides plenty of space for small groups or couples. Parking is provided so no worries there. Paul's is place for a cozy romantic twosome or after work down time meal. Reservations are highly recommended as they have a strong following of regular customers. Definitely add Paul's to your must try list. You won't be disappointed!
