Three of us went to Paul's on the advice of our hotel staff. The special was fried chicken with mashed potatoes and two additional sides. The chicken was a little greasy but delicious. All of the sides were very good. Overall the food would rate a 4. The service was the big disappointment. Our server barely said two words to... More

The lady, Jackie at the front desk of our hotel, recommended this place for dinner. It was delicious and fortunately just a 5 minute walk from hotel. Restaurant waitress and billing lady were very sweet and accommodating. Will definitely stop by this place to eat, the next time I go visit Cherokee.

Went on a trip with my soon to be wife. The food was amazing and the service was great, it was chilly but it is the mountains so. Lol No complaints.

Stopped here on recommendation of desk clerk at Comfort Suites. Good food in a homey atmosphere, several families there when we were. Buffalo burger on fry bread was excellent; my wife had the "Indian taco" with their chili on fry bread and loved it. We would definitely return if we are in Cherokee again.

The food was good, if it were cleaner I would go back. When we went we had been tubing and were very tired. We didn't notice how FILTHY it was until we were leaving. I almost lost what I ate, seriously.

Having seen the earlier comments about the staff, we were rather apprehensive but we went here twice for dinner during our 5 day stay in Cherokee , which says something about our own experience. We found them on both occasions helpful, efficient and friendly. We had jalapeno peppers for a starter and rib-eye for mains, which were very well cooked... More

Paul's is one of my favorite places to eat. I highly recommend the trout. They are usually very busy so be patient.

I have heard good reviews about this place. On our way to Pigeon Forge from Atlanta we stopped on a Sunday afternoon. Nice surprise! Very clean. Staff was helpful and nice. I had the Elk burger. Very good. My husband had the chuck wagon burger, very good. Bathrooms clean. We will make this a regular stop through the mountains.

Thank Paul B
