We love Paul Martin's American Grill. We usually eat here before watching a movie next door at AMC. The food is always fresh and delicious and the service is on time. The noise level is moderate because there are TVs with sports but not so loud that you can not have a decent conversation during dinner.

Our server, Cory, was great. The rest of the staff was also quite nice. We weren’t rushed at all, even when we stayed a little to catch up. My only complaint was that the booth we were sitting in (we were a party of 6) was super cramped. It was hard to maneuver, and we had gifts and a cake box so it was a little tight. Overall, though, the food was good and the people were nice so it was a good evening.

Waitress was very sweet, but not the best service. Also, one item was never brought out, and my mother in law did not care for her entree. We also had made a reservation for outside, but there was a large party, and it was very noisy, so we were seated inside.

Both the shift manager, and our waitress were outstanding. Our service was quick and efficient. The waitress was very sweet and always had a smile.. plus the Manger stopped by and spent some time just discussing their outstanding wine selection .. the food is somewhat costly, but on this trip it was very tasty for everyone. I was very pleased of this visit... Thanks to all..

Paul Martin's menu has changed since Covid so be sure to look at it closely or ask your server. You'll notice not prix fixe choices or specials, and no happy hour.

I, for example, was surprised that my wedge salad was served sans bacon. It was surprising, however the menu reflects this. So, as any red-blooded guy would do, I asked for a side of bacon add to it.

Our server was friendly and attentive. She did a nice job of making us feel welcomed and taking care of our needs.

Our entrées were good, but not great. My wife's pasta was cooked way past al dente. Not mushy, but very much on the soft side, which she disliked. The shrimp and sauce were very good though. My ribeye was perfectly cooked to a medium rare. Just not quite as tender as I like. But it was good. Trust me, I didn't send it back. Lol The menu lists it as black angus, which it may be, I just wonder how well marbled it was to start.

We capped dinner off with a cheesecake for dessert and it was delicious. We did notice that the crust was missing from the bottom. Never had a cheesecake without crust at the bottom.

Overall a very good dining experience with great service. Looking forward to the return of the full menu and happy hour!

Everything was excellent. We ate on the patio. Our waitress, Beatrice, was outstanding. The only reason I rated high noise level was because two of the other tables on patio had infants that were pretty fussy at times. And at one table the 3 young women were pretty boisterous. Not much could have been done and my friend and I were young mothers once and understood.

Wyatt was an excellent server. The food was delicious and he kept coming by to see if we needed anything and always kept our water glasses full. He took the time explain the menu since it was our first time at Paul Martins. Since we had a 230pm reservation, we were seated immediately.

Came to celebrate a friends birthday. We had a reservation so they sat us in the patio right away. Our waiter Gustavo was great. We asked him for suggestions and he was really patient and right on point.
We had some mojitos to start with, they were SUPER good, I recommend.
For appetizers we had the spinach artichoke dip and the salt and pepper shrimp YUM. For main dish we had the 12 oz filet mignon (comes with mashed potatoes) and the rib eye (came with bacon Brussel sprouts). They were both great. For dessert we shared a decadent butter cake (very warm) with ice cream and berries. My friend got an extra ice cream scoop and a candle for her birthday.
We were stuffed so we got some coffee for digestion hahahaha.
Definitely recommended!
