We enjoy going to Paul's. We had the Sea Bass and while the fish was on the small size, it was very good. The reason I gave it 3 stars was because of the male server. He was kind of goofy.. While serving our meals, he kept changing his voice to these silly sounds. Then he cane by wearing a silly plastic hat! We weren't the only table that were rolling our eyes.. Hopefully the management will reign him in. It was a BIG distraction to a usually very enjoyable meal with friends. This isn't Chuckie Cheese!!

Paul’s was packed to the gills on Saturday night and everything is still wowing me here. The ambience is cozy, the food delicious, and the service pleasant. I opted for Chicken Mediterranean which came with fresh green beans and red peppers and a double baked potato. I had a nice glass of white wine blend from Greece. Prices are still so reasonable for a meal that includes a side salad and bread.

Excellent service. We arrived at 1230 sunday for brunch very few cars in lot yet all smoked salmon gone. Waiter offered ‘one free’ mimosa but it came after meal almost gone. Had coupon but server said it couldnt be used because, tho it was sent digitally, he needed it printed out.
If the restaurant would work on these few problem areas it is a eeasonable place to enjoy brunch.

I have lived in Annapolis all 49 years of my life. My mom recently turned my family onto Paul's. I had no idea this neighborhood gem was here. It is outstanding, high quality food for a very reasonable price. The atmosphere is very clean, crisp, quiet, and cozy. I highly recommend visiting Paul's, but make sure to have a reservation for dinner! I've now been for lunch and dinner, and they both are GREAT!

I truly believe my last experience at Paul's is not reflective of the great restaurant it has been. Unfortunately, it was an off night ... food preparation of Greek dishes I ordered and service quality were lacking.
Perhaps, I'll go back under the recommendations of friends, who have given it high marks over the years.

Food was very good, but the service was really lacking. I believe they must have been short staffed since we had never experienced this slow service at Paul's. I had told them in the reservation that it was my husband's birthday and there was no acknowledgment of such

Requested med rare steak. Got well done. Asked for Greek potatoes. Got twice baked potato. Food was not hot when reached the table. Don’t know if it was the servers fault or the kitchen, but not good for the prices we paid. Also, any bar drinks took forever to get. All in all, not the best dining experience.

The service was excellent. The noise was unsettling. The people at the adjacent table were talking really loud (yelling) so that they could be heard. The sound overall was penetrating and made the experience unpleasant.

Our entire experience was well above par. The food was excellent, and the staff was friendly and attentive. Since these are the key attributes that most people care about when they dine out, Paul's deserves high marks. The decor, while not elegant, is very appropriate for an upscale cafe/pub - relatively simple, casual, and clean. We will definitely come here again...and probably again after that.

The food and drinks were fantastic. The service was spectacular and this is a charming yet hidden gem in Annapolis. Homewood is downtown yet just a block or two outside of the downtown mayhem, making Paul’s the perfect venue for a wonderful date night. The Homewood neighborhood is the new attractive area of Annapolis, and Paul’s is its long time anchor. I offer my strongest possible recommendation for dining at Paul’s.
