Blending the tastes of the Chesapeake with traditional Mediterranean cuisine, Paul’s Homewood Cafe will entice you with an intriguing menu. Choose from a selection of Mediterranean and Greek specialties, or American favorites including grilled steaks and our version of the Maryland crab cake. Our popular dining room has the classy, yet casual feel of a European bistro and there is a separate dining room upstairs for private gatherings. Located away from the bustle of the city's historic district, our Zagat-rated restaurant offers plenty of free, off-street parking. If you never visited us, come experience our family-friendly atmosphere and the food that has made Paul's Homewood Cafe an Annapolis favorite for more than 60 years.

Paul's has a very pleasant atmosphere, nicely prepared food and excellent service. The menu which tilts towards Greek cuisine is not particularly adventuresome. That said the fish was cooked perfectly as was the Steak Dianne.

My husband and I have been craving traditional Greek food - thought about some other places, but it had been so long since we went to Paul's, it won out. Worth the decision, even if it was pouring rain. Our server, Rick, was attentive - just the right amount to not be hovering. He knew we ordered too much food, but let us have fun, since we wanted to taste everything! In addition to having great "dips" - like hummus, salmon, tszaziki, were excellent. Hubby had the lamb chops, which were done perfectly - not too rare on the bone. I had 4 different mezze, and could have stuffed most all of it in, but I went for the leftovers.
Highly recommend Paul's.

Perfect date night! From our friendly welcome to our departure we were made to feel at home. We loved the seafood sampler and the lamb tonight- and found room to split a dessert.

Paul's Homewood Cafe offers great food and a lot of charm. We loved the brunch offerings such as Greek Eggs and lamb and chicken and waffles. Every person in our party of 6 was delighted with his/her meal. The baclava wasto die for!

Paul’s is an institution in Annapolis. A menu of Mediterranean/Greek fare along with other daily specials and menu items. My wife had a Mediterranean salmon dish and I had a Duck schnitzel. Both were superb.

My wife and I have been to Paul's several times and have always enjoyed it for its food and service. We like Greek food and usually get something Greek when we visit. This time I had a steak and it was super. Our 2 couple friends had never been to Paul's before and they all were very impressed and will be back. Our server was very attentive and friendly but professional. All in all it was a great evening.

This was my second visitin the last year or so and it was a great experience. Most of us ordered the whole sea bass or rockfish and we all thought it was excellent.

Service was quick and efficient.

We will all return to this terrific local spot.

We were seated at a lovely four top by a window and found it very comfortable and quiet after a long day of driving.
Delicious warm rolls were brought to the table. I had the whole bronzino that I chose to fillet myself. It was absolutely delicious. My husband had a mezze dinner consisting of lemon soup, chicken kebab and pastichio felt the meat in pastichio was a little dry. The weakest link of the dinner was the Greek salad. The feta cheese and dressing were delicious, but the mixed lettuce was very wilted and seemed similar if not the same that comes out of the premade cellophane bags. Because of the poor quality of the lettuce, we were only able to pick at the salad. To go back to the beginning of the review, the overall food was good, and we would go back.

We shared an appetizer of Moussaka. I had Lamb Shish Kabob and my husband had Lamb Shank. Both were good. We shared a bottle of Greek wine and had a lovely dinner.
Our waiter was very friendly and accommodating.

Went for Sunday Brunch. Everything was okay except the waffle & chicken entre. It was served much later than the other 5 meals and when it finally came the chicken was burnt, dried out, and tasted awful. On the positive side, the other meals were very good and the menu was expansive for a brunch.

Paul's is an underestimated find! The food is consistent and the staff is always to do whatever is requested for their guests. I would like to see the interior to be a little more 'inviting'. It is clean and functional as always but just tables and chairs....
