First time at this restaurant but stopped at others in the area. Casual dinner, with steaks and seafood but mixed with some southern type cooking. Turkey and dressing etc. Reasonable prices and ample servings. Nice open atmosphere but not loud.

We were traveling and decided to ask the desk clerk at our hotel for a recommendation for a local place to eat. He said hands down Puleos. So we went just across the street to try. Service was slow and my choice was wrong. The chicken parmigiana was burnt and cover up with cheese and sauce. The meat was dry.... More

This was our first time and it was alright. The food was fairly good. My daughters chicken tenders were the best thing at the table. The service was not so great. Our waitress didn't act like she wanted to be there and it showed.

Never order grits. They're ok, but typically bland. I can do that at home. But the fried green tomatoes come on grits with two gravies for dipping. So, back to the grits, amazing!!!! They're cooked in chicken stock and then have cheese added. I would actually order these! They also have a fairly decent gluten free menu, however there is... More

We first learned of Puleo's 4 years ago from a billboard on I-75. We LOVED our dinners so much that every year, en route to Key West from Michigan, we make it a point to stop here for dinner... and Puleo's has NEVER disappointed. My hickory grilled salmon was perfect. Our waitress Payton was prompt, friendly, and got our order... More

Food was real bland and service was real slow . Not a good place to eat. Only second time eating at a Puleo's restaurant but can't say I'll be back in another one.

Having working there for almost 5 years, I am at liberty to say everything there is made with at least some sort of meat based stock. Only the kids spaghetti. That is if they still use Ragu on the kids portion. No, I am not a disgruntled past employee. I left the restaurant industry entirely. I did ,however, do all... More

I would give this place a higher review but sorry to say the service sucked. The food was great and came in a timely manner but we sat at the bar and that was a huge mistake. Our bartender was running around like she was on speed but she really had no customers. The manager came to help her but... More
