This is a great restaurant. The steaks are the best ever. They have so many kinds of meat that you never see. Buffalo, elk, moose and lots more. We love Paul's.

Waited 10 minutes to be seated. Waited 20 minutes to order. Drinks, appetizers and meal all came at same time. Bland and dry steak. Brown lettuce in salad. Waitress was too busy to be bothered. Overall terrible visit.

The restaurants of Cherokee have traditional food as well as tourist styled foods and each has its own day for serving traditional food. You have to check around to see what restaurant has its day, but well worth the effort. The day I visited town...More

Noisy out on deck due to loud motorcycles. Chef salad was very lacking. No chips with a BLT sandwich? White bread the only option. Had to ask twice for creamer for coffee. Bathroom could be cleaner. Must be better places to eat!

I tend to agree with the previous answer. Pauls is where we normally choose to eat in Cherokee.
