Quiet, cute, noisy kitchen though, great for couples, pricey, great for date night with candles. I really enjoyed the stuffed mushrooms. They have great stuffed chicken marsala, also. Good wine, yet again, quite pricey

My friend and I wanted to try something new and the outside eating area looked very inviting. Let me start by saying we walked in first to find there were no other customers and to let waitress know we would be dining outside. It took quite awhile for her to come check on us and longer to get our drinks... More

It was a packed house and the staff was great. They had a lot of things on their plate to deal with but they were handling it very well. We had the spinach lasagna which was delicious and the sausage sandwich. Both were very tasty. Limited beer wine offerings

Stopped by to ask if they could pack a couple of sub sandwiches for us to take with us to Cumberland Island. They did, and packed them nicely so that the sandwiches would keep.

Stopped in St Marys,on the way to Tampa and had dinner at Paulys. Look close to find it. My wife had the creole shrimp salad sandwich and it was great. Whole shrimp on a croissant. Spiced just right. For 15.95 I went for the Tourneadoes and couldn't believe the quality and taste of the meat. Not the best but very... More

We stopped here for lunch after returning from our camping trip to Cumberland Island. It was Sunday in Georgia so they can't serve you a beer until 12:30 pm but the burger and veggie sandwich we had were excellent. Small place, nice menu choices, fun things on the shelves and very friendly people working there. We will be back.

Good food, friendly staff. Formal atmosphere inside, funky "pirate" atmosphere outside. Family, kid friendly.

Pauly's has been in operation for many years. Can't beat the daily specials for soup and salads. Chef's seafood soups are as good as you can get and the variety is incredible. Very popular with locals and tourist.

I stopped by Pauly's Cafe for lunch recently and found that I had come to a restaurant with very good food. I ordered two of the specials for the day, the paella soup and shrimp scampi. The soup seemed to me to have an odd name, but it did contain many of the flavors of paella. It was a good... More

Been here before and the food was great. Tonight tasted like prepackaged and reheated. So disappointed. They need to go back to how they used to do things.
