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

The restaurant is very close to many hotels, including ours. We ate the Palermo Chicken and it was quite good. There were a number of other entrees that sounded good so we will be back to try some others.

In trying to keep carbs in line, I ordered the salad with grilled chicken. It was delicious with the avocoda ranch dressing.

Not withstanding the 20something male at the table across the way dropping f & mf bombs every so often (such that the host rightly stopped seating folks in our area), my server was rather inattentive and contributed to the entree being made incorrectly and needing to be sent back (once she finally checked back).

I would highly recommend you eat here. Our server was very good and informative on the meals. We had the pork chop and it was the best. I had a citrus chicken and it was awesome. The Parmesan chicken was delicious.

I have not been to this Puleo's in a while, but had the pleasure of dining there last night. It was difficult to order because so many of the choices were so tempting. Let it suffice to say that the food was delicious. The service was excellent...friendly, just attentive enough without being overbearing. I was with friends I had not... More

We have changed locations from time to time but no matter which location Puleos always satisfies. The staff is always friendly and fast, the food is amazing and while the prices are a little high; you get what you pay for and we are always willing to dine here. The simplest items on menu are delicious.

Thank Kelly F
