On a very cold winter night, the red and white bean chicken chili was perfect. The calamari appetizer plate was generous and thee calamari lightly coated and served with a tomato-based dipping sauce. Although not on the menu, a special request for Spanish coffee was willingly produced. Staff was helpful with suggestions. Very pleasant experience.

We were traveling and went here based on a suggestion / recommendation from our hotel. My husband had the Caesar salad with salmon on it, and I had the kale salad with grilled chicken on top. Both were good. My chicken was a little dry, but my husband was pleasantly surprised at how good the salmon was. He also had... More

Reserved our table in advance with the holiday crowds and glad that we did! Meal was delicious and service was good. Recommended for family dinners with the large number of menu choices.

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
