This restaurant features a large menu, however, it would be better if they focused on a fewer items and more consistent. Portions were extremely large and hearty. The fried green tomatoes were definitely a hit. Chicken Piccata was not traditionally prepared with thin cutlets and was served with tough fettuccini pasta. Both the lasgna and eggplant parmesan servings were enormous.... More

Good selection of breakfast and lunch items. There was an omelet menu for selecting ingredients but I never got one from the waitress. The Bloody Mary was super spicy. The fried oysters were the most popular. This place was our second choice since the other places had a long line and were not taking reservations. Don't think I'll be coming... More

This place is sort of a Mexican- Italian restaurant which was kind of weird but I had a fantastic meal of spicy chicken and Italian sausage over grits. The service was good and the price was right; I would return here if I was in the area.

My husband and I eat here often. We have tried a varity of the food on the menu. My faverites are the Fried Green Tomatoes appetizer and the Prime Rib. Their drinks also hit the mark. I can also recommend the Chicken Alfredo. We usually go slightly past the dinner hour about 7 and have always recieved fast courteous service.... More

Planned a business meeting near the airport for a few of us coming in from different places, and found this place. Enjoyed a very nice lunch, especially liked the shrimp and grits! Dessert was also very very good! Perhaps the best part was that the meeting went from 11:00 until 4 pm, and they never hurried us, bothered us, we... More

We had burgers and they were good, and the dessert was good. We just never are really impressed here. We hadn't been in years and decided to give it another try. Seemed ok, but just not our cup of tea.

We had the special 4 course dinner for Valentine's Day dinner. The spinach artichoke dip was amazing as well as the ceaser salad. The prime rib was a little disappointing because it didn't have much taste to it. My son ordered the ribeye medium rare and it came well done ( he didn't want to send it back though)The best...

Was in town for the day with a friend and wanted something different. Had never been to Puleo's so.... Food was fabulous, at a midrange price and the service was superb! Large portions had us asking for 'to-go boxes' and the leftovers were equally enjoyed a second day. Plan to stop by on our next trip through town for a... More
