Paul's was about average for a family style restaurant. The waitress was polite and helpful, and the casual atmosphere was good. The restaurant was clean. I liked the unusual items on the menu (Rabbit, Pheasant, Ostrich), but was disappointed that they were out of Pheasant....More

We ate here on the recommendation of an employee at the Cherokee Indian Museum. The food wasn't too bad, but it wasn't great either. I had the corn nuggets and the funnel cake fries as an appetizer which weren't bad. The elk burger was juicy...More

Pauls has great home cooking, like pork chops, chicken, etc...but they also have things like Buffalo Burgers that are great. Can't go wrong here with the food or price!

Home style cooking, everything tasted good and was well prepared. There is nothing fancy here but the food was good and reasonably priced, tried he Indian taco. Will go again.

Was here for brunch; The fried bread seemed fresh and was very delicious. The coffee tasted fresh too; and do try their fried mushrooms! Some of the best fried mushrooms I’ve tasted so far- the filling was soft, not chewy, and crispy unlike most mushrooms...More

Food isn’t good. If you don’t like something, plan on paying for it anyways. Service is very slow. Won’t be returning. Worst restaurant I’ve ever been to.

Basically, we just grabbed a burger plate and kicked back on the porch. Our order took a little bit to get to us, but we weren't in a hurry. The food was very good (seasoned nicely, hot and fresh).
