This place is appalling! First off, they have filthy sponges that hang above you and have over time accumulated so much dust they have turned black. Secondly, the food we did have was almost inedible. And finally, there was a cockroach in my drink, as well as a cockroach egg frozen in my uncles ice in his drink. When we brought it to the managers attention he acted as though it was not a surprise and even fought with me saying it was a fly not an egg. No apology was made. DO NOT RISK IT!!
HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE – DONT GO TO THE RESTAURANT EVER!!!!!!! I wish I had read these reviews before we went there. I chose this restaurant because I had a $25 gift certificate from Restaurant DOT com and would have walked out if we didnt have that. Service was HORRIBLE. Hostess looked STONED out of her mind. Took 10 minutes to be acknowledged at the door, had to ask for a server to take our drink order and then waited 10 MORE minutes before she did. Waitress looked like she didnt have a clue. We were a table of 5 and only 2 other tables had patrons. My mel came out 10-15 minutes after the others. Then I had to wait for drawn butter (she forgot twice) then she brought me MELTED MARGARINE-GROSS! My mom got shrimp scampi and it was cold. I had the NE clam chowder (very tasty) BUT, I SWeAR this is true-I DRANK IT WITH A STRAW. They sent me the KITCHEN Mgr (after a long wait) HE seemed as though he had a bit of a mental problem. He took my peel and eat shrimp(which I ordered warm) and reheated them so they were TOO HOT to handle, needless to say they were like RUBBER..I couldnt eat them. Bread was ICE cold. Nothing good to say at all! Finally, a female mgr came over and made some amends to our bill...but, from beginning to end the worst experience of my life. They offered me a $25 GC to come back and I refused it. TOO MANY restaurannts in the area to bother with this one. It is truly a shame.
Boiled shrimp and beer is the specialty at this old-style Greek restaurant, and it's always a good bet. – The Scene
As a grubby party spot, you sure can't beat Paul's: From the dirty handprints on the aquarium to the pocked plank floor and peeling paint, this is a restaurant that screams "party." The crowd ranges from foursomes of seniors to loud, tattooed younger patrons--and you can bet nobody cares what you look like.
Skip everything on the menu except the boiled shrimp. It's simple; it's delicious, and many of the other dishes are not as good. Especially avoid the baklava
dessert. But again, if you drink enough beer beforehand, it might not be so bad.
