This is a good Restaurant with good service that can accommodate large groups. We had 12 in our party. The bread is very good. The classic Margarita with Patron is good. I had the fried chicken and waffles which was good. I tasted the shrimp and grits as well as the salmon and both were tasty.

I would advise eating lunch as the portions are huge for supper. It was more than I could eat and I was hungry.

We had approximately 30 folks attend as a group on very short notice. The staff was EXTREMELY accommodating and the food was super. Didn't hear a complaint from a single person. Very broad array of options and I think we got about 1 of everything! Pricing was reasonable as well. Strongly recommend.

Heard about a Valentine Day Special at Puleo's that was Two Can Dine for $50. It was an appetizer to share, a salad for each, entrée for each from a choice of 4 options and half portion desserts with choice of 4 options. This special was offered over several days before and including actual Valentine's Day. We decided to give... More

We picked this restaurant based on tripadvisor reviews and its proximity to our hotel. Big disappointment. My husbands crab cakes were terrible while my chicken piccata was acceptable but not worth repeating. While our server was pleasant, it was a very disappointing meal.

Love the part of getting the menu of apps for HH with no prices on the menu. I'm good, but not psychic yet. If u can't be bothered posting the prices, then I can't be bothered with your food ! Not a good business model !

My husband and I recently stopped here on our way home from SC. We both enjoyed our lunches very much! I ordered a veggie burger which was delicious!
