We went to Paul Martin's for Thanksgiving Day dinner. The food was excellent and our server, Chris, was great. He was so nice, accommodating, and friendly. He went above and beyond to make our dining experience great and provided wonderful customer service. The hostess was also very friendly and welcoming and the manager stopped by our table to ask how our meal was and to thank us for coming in. It was an overall very enjoyable evening. We will definitely be going back soon!

Took a friend of the family to Thanksgiving dinner. She had the "traditional" fare, and we had fish, for a change - my fiancee the cod and me the salmon. All of us were happy! The salad and butternut squash soup beforehand were both wonderful . . .

Steak was overcooked, but the manager did offer to recook it—we decided not to do that and he didn’t charge us for it. He was very nice—it’s just that the service was slow—we waited about 45 minutes for our food. It was all just okay—not awful, but not great.

Seated quickly and server took his time to get to us. We were ready to order when he came. Food was good-very good. Deviled eggs delicious. Wedge salad, dressing excellent but had to ask for more as they put VERY little on. Had to get more from busboy, as server never came to our table after we ordered. The salad was literally 95% lettuce, 2 small slivers of tomato and onion. Very little bacon. Prime rib sandwich excellent but French fries were cold. Wasn’t offered refills on soda until after we finish our meal. Very hit and miss. I love their French Dip but have to put up with a lot of mediocre to have it.

Brick chicken was great. There were only two of us and we were seated at what
seemed to be a cocktail table, small, round, chairs were high. Despite many other open tables. The reason I will never go back. Everything else was great.

This was a perfect spot for our business lunch. The food was good, service was quick and professional, and the atmosphere is quiet and welcoming. It was a bit confusing after utilizing the parking lot on which direction to the entrance so perhaps an added sign for direction, but otherwise highly recommended!

We went for a duo birthday dinner. Had cocktails (Old Fashions are amazing), spinach artichoke dip and flatbread for appetizers, night’s special fish, steak, and of course, infamous short rib. Every dish was incredible! And butter cake topped off the evening just right. Every single staff member exceeded expectations. We’ll be back.
