We stayed at a nearby Hampton Inn (an excellent spot) and Puleo's was a short drive from the hotel. We arrived at the hotel late both on the way down to SC and on the return trip. After a very good experience on the first visit, we decided to return here. The servers are very friendly - nothing like a... More

Warmly greeted and immediately sat on a slow Monday night. Super clean and comfortable. Brad, my server was charming, funny and attentive. His service was nearly better than the food. I went back Tuesday with my team. And got the queen cut prime rib, whipped sweet potato that was so good I nearly licked the bowl. Think I'll go back... More

Stopped in Knoxville (north) on our drive back from Florida and had dinner at Puleo's. We asked our server (Donna B) to recommend a couple of "southern" dishes and we selected the Shrimp & Grits, and Ribs and Chicken. She also recommended a local draft (Sawworks) to wash it all down. The Shrimp dish was flavourful with generous amounts of... More

Title sums it up. For better food, better service, better bar than O'Charley's, walk across the street and relax! I have never had a bad meal here, no matter what I order or when I go.

We've enjoyed lunch at this restaurant several times before and found the food very good. I was a bit surprised to encounter tough chicken in a grilled Chicken Caesar's Salad. Hope it's not the sign of a new supplier or chef.

Puleos's grille is a local chain in Knoxville . If only they would spread farther afield. Our whole experience was positive. They have some vegan options, and were careful to make sure we knew everything we needed to, eg, any deep fried vegetable may have been in oil used for meat. My kale salad was delicious, with fruit, vegs, and... More

We prefer to stay out of chain restaurants on the road, if it can be helped. This one was very close to our hotel and recommended by staff. Menu was varied and had something for everyone. Unfortunately, we don't care for hickory-smoked flavor, so that cut off a lot of choices. I had the roasted turkey and dressing, and my... More

Nice restaurant, very extensive menu choices. There's really something for everyone on the menu. We opted for burgers and they were excellent. I would gladly go back if we were in the area again.

The menu had a huge range of choices. Everyone got something different and everyone was happy with their meals. The service was very good also.
