Had over 20 of us request an evening reservation. We were all seated together and wait staff was great! Lots of food choices and very happy with this restaurant. Wish we had one in NC. Highly recommend!

We were staying at a hotel near this restaurant, and, although there were quite a number of restaurants in the area, the menu here was so variend, we were confident there would be enough choices for those in our party. Members of our party ate quite a variety: salads, burgers, pizza, seafood, chicken. Everyone was pleased with their meal. Our... More

Love the part of getting the menu of apps for HH with no prices on the menu. I'm good, but not psychic yet. If u can't be bothered posting the prices, then I can't be bothered with your food ! Not a good business model !

My husband and I recently stopped here on our way home from SC. We both enjoyed our lunches very much! I ordered a veggie burger which was delicious! I was later told by the manager that the burger was a recipe developed by their chef. My husband enjoyed his salad of fresh greens and chicken. The portion was large. Our... More

We had a large group event here. The servers were very helpful and friendly. Many places that you go often get frustrated with large crowds. However, they moved fast and got everyones food out quickly!

While this would appear to be a Mexican grill it in fact has a bigger menu. Service was a little slow given the lack of customers, but waitress was very good so appeared to be kitchens fault. We weren't in a hurry so no big deal.

Wanting to stay away from national chains, the front desk recommended Puleo's. Always wanting to eat where the locals eat, what a fabulous choice. Our waiter was wonderful. Thinking it was Italian, the traditional fare, boy were we wrong. The menu has beef, seafood, Italian and Shrimp and Grits! You must try the Avocado Ranch Dressing..... Shrimp and Grits in... More

There were abundant Italian offerings, steaks, and more traditional Southern offerings. We had the shrimp & grits (& sausage & peppers), which had lots of shrimp but also lots of butter. We also had the tuna (very tasty) served with slaw (good) and asparagus (seasoned well, but poorly trimmed so there were lots of woody ends). The waiter was attentive... More
