There at 1230 and not busy. Had soup and salad. Could have been better since they won best Chef locally. Expected more. Garlic bread was good, salad from a bag and soup was tasty but not very hot. Kinda disappointed.

The little space outside is so relaxed. Don't expect fancy, it is not for you. It is however for flip flops and ball xaps.

Read some rave reviews, some so so, etc but decided to give it a try - very very disappointed - had the Vongole that Rocket R recommended - it was terrible, not a fresh clam, canned clams, drenched in oil and a ton of oregano...More

The Vongole (clams in white wine sauce over linguine) was outstanding! The use of fresh herbs and the high quality of ingredients really came through. My wife had the Italian Sub and couldn't stop raving about it. Again quality meats and meats on a good...More

We walked by and looked in...there was this outside bar, no AC, tin roof, dirt floor, dogs walking around,gas heaters....great happy hour prices...everyone knew the dogs' names..."Where's macaroni?".."Oh there he is!"..filled with locals of all economic means...can't wait to go back

A nice location right on the main strip in St. Mary's and across from the ferry return. We both had steak which was tasty and cooked to order. The garlic bread was nice too. Staff was friendly. Meal was fine, but nothing memorable.

I went for dessert many years ago. As I was eating, a large red roach ran across my red tablecloth. I told the server about it, and she froze, not knowing what to do. The restaurant was dimly lighted. Every time I think of Pauleys,...More
