This is not a fast food restaurant so if you're in a hurry, you may want to go somewhere else. With that being said, the food was well worth the wait! Our party of 4 came in for lunch on a Saturday. The restaurant was pretty full but we were sat immediately & had drinks within a few minutes. We... More

After several recommendations, my spouse and I decided to have dinner here. Sadly, for us, our experience was not good. The service and the food was subpar. They were out of some items and our server had obviously experienced a long day. The fried green tomatoes tasted as though they had been breaded and fried with fish. I ordered country... More

I have eaten at Paul's several times over the past 3 years. The Food is always great, but certain times of the day you may have a little wait time.

Read all the reviews good and bad and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. My husband ordered the fresh trout dinner. It included fries, coleslaw and hushpuppies. I ordered the fry bread cheeseburger with fries. Both meals were very good. Our waitress, Tina, was very friendly and checked back several times to make sure we had... More

Paul's is a nice, roadside restaurant with terrific food. We stopped here and had lunch while visiting Cherokee, NC and really liked it. Is it a "fancy" place, no. But it has good food, friendly service, and the value you get is worth it. I had a really tasty Buffalo burger and our family shared an order of freshly made... More

Food was very good and the service top notch. My family and I were looking for a small friendly restaurant just to get a steak and this is the place we found.

We stopped in because everytime we passed the place was covered up. The staff was very friendly. It took a few minutes to get seated even though there wasn't a line. The menu included Native American food selections as well as the standard things one woukd expect. I had flounder and found the portion size small but it was very... More

This restaurant has lots of menu items and is great for the whole family. Items are fresh and cooked to order. Sometimes there is a line and serving time is often lengthy. Be prepared to wait! Great food at a good price is worth the wait! Been there many times and never disappointed. Great desserts too!

This restaurant was billed as the best place in town. We had a group of family and friends. Service and food were both below average.
