High quality American food. Dined there twice in December. Had the burger, fish tacos, tortilla soup, brick chicken and roasted brussels sprouts side dish. Everything was good at a price that was a good value.
Wonderful Birthday Lunch with my family. Rain didn't stop us from having a incredible lunch. Heaters kept us toasty.
Loved everything about it Covid protocols set food great
Good food, good service...will continue to go back.
Sat on patio and it was pleasant.
Thanksgiving dinner with a friend. Lovely day, lovely meal. Outstanding service.
Over all the Thanksgiving dinner was subpar.
The Service was very good
Food: Turkey very good
Dressing: dry, and not fully cooked
sweet potatoes: some overcooked and some under cooked
Everything else was good.
Coffee was old and lukewarm. took ten minutes to get a hot cup. Desert was done by then.
I wish I remember our server’s name. She worked the lunch shift on Thanksgiving day serving the outside patio. She was really wonderful and offered great suggestions when we asked her about dishes. Instead of saying everything on the menu was good, she offered why she liked certain dishes and that made it easier for us to decide what we wanted. Her attitude was amazing and she was the first person that has made me want to tip very generously. She was a gem and the food was great.
The food was very well prepared. Excellent taste. Server helpful when I shared I did not care for one item that was part of my dish; switched out slaw with spinach. Great menu selections.
Good meal, very attentive staff, overall great experience.
My wife and I visit several times a year. We never had an unpleasant one. We like the cocktail and wine list. Their food choices compliment the drinks perfectly. The service is on point. They easily recognize and issues and solve them with the customer in mind. Also with the pandemic in mind, the restaurant planned it appropriately. Thanks!
Great food. Took my dad for his bday, he loved it.
Nice place for a Friday night Date Night. Good food. Good service and a very nice atmosphere.
Great meal, great service.
The staff was attentive upon arrival and quickly sat us. We were socially distanced from other tables/booths. All staff wore protective facemasks and gloves. The food was well prepared and tasty. The service was excellent and limited the visits to the table to when it was necessary.
Flavors were lacking. Quality still very high
Gabriel our Server was AWESOME 👏🏼
Perfect place for a date night. Good food excellent wait staff!
So glad they’re back. Food is better than ever and so is the service
Horrible selection of fixed menu, overpriced!
Food was excellent as usual. Given the few customers, service was a bit slow. Attention to social distancing and sanitizing was excellent.
Lunch. Had the burger. Delicious!!!
This was more nostalgic, first time since pandemic, nothing has changed except it seemed a little brighter... got to see the food!
Food not as good as before. They recently reopened after having to close due to COVID. We understand given the situation. Staff was nice and gracious. Manager came by to say hello and thanked us for coming in. We appreciated it and wanted to support them. Was there for our Anniversary and celebrating our son’s outstanding report card. We did note the special occasion in the reservation but no recognition of that.
Great service. Very attentive waitstaff. Very clean and covid-19 compliant: social distance seating, hand sanitizer readily available and staff wearing masks at all times. Will definitely go back!
Wonderful service and great food. Very happy
Always have a great time, staff is great, food is amazing!
Love the brick chicken. Thank you to the manager who was attentive to us. Our waiter is new & still learning where everything is, but still attentive.
Thank you for Re-opening.
Just so glad that Paul Martin’s is serving again. It had been 8 months since eating there and it was great.
I highly recommend Paul Martin's for its excellent menu, location, and ambience.
Due to Covid, they just reopened and the food was so so. Service was slow, not enough people working. Phone was ringing and ringing.
Celebrating friends birthday. We both order grilled salmon salad and had wine and cosmo.
Happy to know Paul Martin was open for business with great food and service
Every good for first day open again
I enjoyed most of my meal till it came to my mac and cheese. For religious reasons i don’t eat pork and i asked when i had ordered to make it with no bacon. He told me bacon wasn’t even in the mac and cheese anymore. He brought me my mac and cheese with bacon sprinkled all across the top of it. I sent it back and asked for it to be remade and to make sure theirs no meat. He returned promising theirs no meat in this one and it was remade. But it seemed like they scrapped off the top and gave me the same mac and cheese. I didn’t figure out out till i ate nearly have it and noticed a weird taste then pulled out a small piece of bacon from my mouth. I flipped the mac and cheese over on a plate and saw that it was filled with bacon through out the bottom and i had eaten a lot of it. The rest of our meal was amazing though and i did enjoy the time i had with my family. They apologized and gave me my meal for free but i still can’t get over that. Wouldn’t go here if you have food restrictions.
How do fish tacos they were great my wife had the French dip sandwich it was great good service nice place
I would be here more often if I lived close by👍 Food was good service was attentive 👍
To be honest, we were disappointed with the food. Service was wonderful, the ambiance is great, but the food seriously failed to deliver. I'm not sure if the kitchen was short-staffed because of the virus crisis, but all-in-all, it did not live up to the hype.
Freezing cold temperature. Floor sticky as the carpet must have been pulled up.
Freezing cold water in ladies bathroom.
Food good and good size portion.
Hardly any customers for a long time.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us feedback on how we're doing! We appreciate everyone who takes the time to review their dining experience with us!Thank you again,Paul Martins American Grill
We ordered cocktails first and they were fine. Ordered a second cocktail and our entrees. The second cocktails were both made wrong and the waiter was gracious about bringing us new ones. When they came they also tasted very strange, sort of like maybe the glassware was not rinsed out or something. Then we waited an extra long period for our food. When it came it was cold. Would not recommend this restaurant.
