Been here before and the food was great. Tonight tasted like prepackaged and reheated. So disappointed. They need to go back to how they used to do things.

Love this little spot hidden in downtown Saint Mary's. Great food, friendly staff, and pet friendly!

We thought we were going to Pauly's Cafe that offered smoked wings and bar-b-que. The tiki bar had not opened but the sign said eat indoors or out. We went inside and Pauly's menu is completely different. It was confusing. Inside restaurant is all Italian and subs. Our table ordered two of the cheesesteak sandwiches, a grilled chicken sandwich, and... More

Pauly's is part Tiki Bar on the outside and an Italian Restaurant on the inside. The evening we were there a young woman was preparing BBQ and marinated pork which smelled and tasted delicious. The interior is small but service is cheerful and the food is just fine.

Not sure how anyone can make crab stuffed mushrooms revolting but this place did. Service was ok. Some of the people in our large group enjoyed their meals but the food didn't look appetizing. Great place to sit outside for a drink.

Service was good and so was the food but the AC vents above the tables were filthy? Beyond gross. I wonder how dirty the places we couldn't see were.

We checked out the waterfront in St Mary's after traveling most of the day to find the Cumberland Island National Seashore Visitor Center. Pauly's was very convenient to where we were. It's inside dining room was small( maybe tiny), but very cute and cozy. And the food was fabulous! Not a chain restaurant - a local.

My husband and I went for dinner on a Tuesday night. My food was mediocre at best. My husband's dish was cold. We are not complainers. He quietly notified our waitress who took the dish to have it reheated. It was still cold. We're surprised to be charged full price for a dish my husband couldn't eat. Also, atmosphere was... More

Atmosphere: Our visit was around 6pm so there wasn't many people at all there so it would be unfair to judge the atmosphere. It looked like they have outside seating on a nice patio with possibly even a bar so having drinks outside would probably be very relaxing late in the evening. We chose to sit inside which was a...
