Permanently Closed Menu was over priced and taste was inconsistent. The building has been vacant for a long time and would do great as a breakfast restaurant (Denny's or Similar)

We ate her and enjoyed our experience. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, the chef came out and said hi. Last time I drove by, the lot was overgrown. I hope they haven't closed down but I fear they have.

A place where you feel wanted, without a pretentious feel or tiny portions. Just good food and plenty of it! Call it home-cooking or casual comfort food, but we call it ... 2 Pauls'!

2 Pauls' City Grille is known for cooking your casual, comfort-food favorites- but to absolute perfection and with the absolute passion for creating the perfect dish. You will find a wide array of dishes, including some with an exotic flair and with international influence. These partnered with time-honored favorites and American food favorites guarantees something on the menu for everyone.

Enjoy a classic Steak, cooked/seared just the way you like, or our Oven Poached Haddock and Shrimp. Our Crabcakes and Shish Kabobs are a crowd favorites, not forgetting our selection of Burgers, Sandwiches, Italian Specialties, Salads, and array of sides/appetizers.

Our Brunch spread draws in crowds from several towns away- including our fantastic selection of Eggs Benedict, Portuguese Sweet French Toast, and other classic breakfast/lunch staples (and omelettes aplenty!)

Next time you want good eats, guaranteed- skip the guessing game and head straight over to 2 Pauls'- we'd love to have you!
