We had never been to Paul Martin's American Grill and was pleasantly surprised. Starting with the online reservation was simple and we got confirmation with directions. Arrived were seated immediately. Water was very efficient and helpful. Food arrived with no delays, in fact, it was served a bit too quickly but better than waiting around! The food was outstanding for both of us. When we mentioned that this was for my birthday waiter pulled out the dessert menu and said anything I wanted was on the house. Nice touch. We will definitely return

The waiter was not very friendly. He did not check to see how our meal was. Not impressed. The service sitting at the bar is by far much better. Very disappointing since i brought in a guest from out of town.

Paul Martin’s seldom disappoints, although this time, after giving our order and asking the server to hold the order while we enjoyed a glass of wine, we were surprised that the food came so soon! The server offered to take it back, but I was afraid it would either dry out, or if they gave us new servings, the food would be wasted, so we ate earlier than we really wanted to. The salmon was delicious as usual. They also missed “celebrating” the birthday I mentioned in the online reservation. Would I go back? IN A HANDSHAKE! Ann

Let me start my saying that had my fiancé and I not had a couple gift cards to use, we probably would not have come in, and we probably won’t be back. The food was not great and certainly not worth the price! I’d much rather go across the street to Houston’s for the same kind of cuisine and same price point and MUCH better quality. That being said, our server, John, was fabulous! He was kind, attentive, funny.

As for the food, we started with the artichoke, which was probably the best thing we had. The sauce that comes with it is delicious! We shared a Caesar salad (not good), my fiancé had the salmon (very bland), I had the halibut, we also had a side of cauliflower (pretty good). When I asked John how the halibut was, he raved about it, said it was one of the best things on the menu. I felt confident about my order. My halibut came out EXTREMELY over cooked. The manager stopped by because he could see something was wrong. I politely said my fish was over cooked, they took it back. John saw what was going on and couldn’t have been more apologetic! He really was great! They brought out a new one which honestly was only slightly better, but I could tell that was the best it was going to get. I ate MAYBE half of it. We finished dinner and asked for the bill. I’m not one to ask for free things. I’ve been in the business, managed restaurants, served tables, I was pretty surprised that they didn’t so much as buy a drink or our appetizer for our trouble and the terrible meal we had. If it wasn’t for how great John had been, I would have left there a much more unhappy customer.

Other than the loooong wait everything was good. Having been to Paul Martin’s in another city I would not have known what to expect. However, I understand it was a holiday, but we waited over 1 hour for our food!! Everyone was very nice and understanding but it was disappointing to have to wait that long.

Easter brunch at Paul Martins was one of the worst experiences at a restaurant I have ever had. It was an embarrassment to have brought people there. From the time we ordered to when our food arrived was 2 hours and the food was terrible!! Managers blamed it on corporate, who cares??? They didn’t charge for the food and gave us a few $10 coupons for another brunch, I had to laugh. Ruined our entire day and we were still hungry. All surrounding guests were just as upset. Terrible.

Reservations for Easter brunch - we come here often to eat usually great food and service - this is why this was so disappointing
We had 3 smaller kids
Food took 1 hour to come out - kept hearing they would check - manager did not check on table
Kids grilled chicken burnt on the outside. And very dry

Good comments from the table were in Monte Cristo
And frittata

We like this spot, and have had some very enjoyable meals here. We also realize Easter Sunday will be busy most places, but we expect the better establishments have a plan/ system in place to deal with that. That didn't seem to be the case this time. Our server did his best to work with the very slow food prep/ delivery, but waiting an hour for a sandwich, eggs and tacos is a bit much, and, it appeared that everyone was in the same boat.

We had Easter brunch here. They were extremely busy and, although we had reservations, they were running a bit behind (approx. 20 mins). Still, they kept us informed of the delay/wait time. Once seated our waiter was great. He also informed us as to the delay/backlog in the kitchen. He brought us our drinks and plenty of bread/rolls while we waited for our meals to arrive. The time passed quickly enough. Most importantly, when the food arrived it was delicious! Everything was wonderful (croque monsieur, eggs benedict and crabcake eggs benedict). We will definitely dine here again. I am sure on a regular day/evening the service would be impeccable. Even on such a busy day (Easter Sunday) they did a great job taking care of us.

My friend and I went for Easter Brunch and the wait was only about 5 minutes. The food was very good but it did take about 40 minutes after ordering to receive the meal. Over all it was very good.

Had to wait 1 hour for food to come out of kitchen and then two out of three meals cold. Hated to say food was cold and send back to kitchen because we did not have another hour to wait for replacement food to come out. Hopefully brunch menu and service will improve but we will not be back

Not spectacular. Arrived around 10 am, with reservations for 2018 Easter brunch - 4 of us. First time. Very friendly greeting. Seated quickly. Initial service was spot on. Drinks and cool cheddar bread. Butter tasted prepped because we could decect a refrigerated flavor. We ordered all appetizers and entrées right away. We waited over 45 minutes to get ANY our ORDERED food. We had a second batch of bread given to us, with no explanation what was going on for the delay. We didn’t question. Customers arrived after us were receiving their entrées before us. My Monte Crisco came out cold. The Carnitas tacos were just OK. The meat mixture was good, but the tortillas were cold just out of the package. The prime rib that we were served was chewy and full of tendons. Not flavorful on the outside crust at all. It all seemed very old people cafeteria style. Not much flavor and overall bland. Reminded all of us at Cracker Barrel. The manager came over and apologized for the wait after we were done with our meal after asking if we were all OK and happy with their meals, saying that there was some sort of mixup in the kitchen. We did not complain. We paid in everything was OK. But we would not return. It was a very Cracker Barrel experience. It’s for old people with soft teeth and what not. That’s what it seemed to us. It is what it is. And many people are probably going to enjoy it. But that’s not what I was expecting for a special Easter brunch.

This is our second time at Paul Martin’s, the first time was very good, this second time they really nailed it. Our family had all different entres and each were excellent.

I had a taste for beef, and thought the small filet was delicious.

Our server, also named Paul, was great, and worked hard to ensure we enjoyed our family night out.

Music was a little two loud which affected the ambiance.
Food was good but overpriced for what we received. We were eating vegan meals and not price reduction was made for removal of the meat from the dish we ordered. We were happy, however, that the server was attentive and made sure to let us know our options. He was careful to help us choose the appropriate meal.

Courtney was the best waiter EVER! He kept us apprised of the status of our order and how much time until it was ready, he replenished our drinks at the exact time that they were getting low, he has a positive, can-do attitude and helped make our lunch even more fun than it was anticipated to be. The food was very fresh and delicious.

My server Carl, was terrific and checked on our table in a timely fashion without being overbearing. Management Tim and Eric, are the most personable people that you'll ever meet. They are like family! Run, don't walk here to dine.
