We spent the night in a nearby hotel and saw Puleo's as we drove in (as well as the typical chain restaurants.) It looked appealing, and the TripAdvisor reviews were good, so we checked into our hotel and returned for dinner around 8:15. They were fairly busy, so we ordered wine (a nice selection) at the bar. We were seated within 15 minutes. The staff was very friendly; the decor was casual/rustic and quite pleasant; the menu featured a nice variety, including an amazing sides list. Loved our waiter, Drew. We ordered the house salad--very good. Husband went with a filet and asparagus and enjoyed both. I couldn't resist the fish and chips, and it was an excellent choice! Delicious. (The napa slaw was different in a very good way.) All in all--a very nice dinner experience.

I got THE BEST ahi tuna here on my birthday. However, when i went back to get it again, it was way overcooked. I'm assuming two different chefs??? anyway...great restaurant with good prices and lots of options!! I will certainly be going back again....and the ahi was so good the first time, I think i'll give it another shot!

The waitress was very helpful in helping us find a gluten free lunch.
The meal was terrific. Close to the highway so we could be on our way again.

We went here for dinner from our overnight hotel based on other tripadvisor recommendations. We were not disappointed. The waiter was prompt and very helpful. Ordered shrimp and grits and seafood ravioli on the waiters suggestion; both were terrific dishes with big flavor. Good salads, bread and house wine too. Good value.

Tried this on the recommendation of our hotel. Glad we did! The good was good. Nice southern yet Italian flare.
