The shrimp is not the freshest. It was mushy. Greek salad was good. Prices were high for what you got

Paul's has been a Pinellas County icon for many years. Use to travel from down county just to have their delicious shrimp. Now I eat there at least once a month. Good prices, large shrimp, terrific Greek salad. For couples... get the salad for one.......More
