Nestled in Turtle Creek Village, Paul Martin’s American Grill offers a sophisticated yet approachable environment with delicious bites and drinks. The restaurant just extended their happy hour program to the dining room, offerings all guests to jump in on all the fun. After all, who can say no to a great happy hour??

If you’re a regular here, you’ll see the usual happy hour menu but now with new additions.

New food items:

Avocado Toast

Ahi Tuna Lettuce Wraps

Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich


New drink items:

Whiskey Buck

Sparkling Lemonade – new ingredients added in with the usual Prosecco in this drink

Red and White Sangria

Rosemary Gin & Juice

Grapefruit Honey Fizz


A surprisingly delightful drink on the menu is the Rosemary Gin & Juice. The rosemary added a sweet flavor to the rest of the cocktail, making for a memorable libration. ($9) On the right is another new drink, the Grapefruit Honey Fizz. Mixed with Mount Gay Eclipse Rum, lime juice, grapefruit honey and Le Grand Courtage Blanc de Blancs, this cocktail is perfect for those who love grapefruit with a splash of liquor. ($9)


Perfect for any whiskey lover is the Whiskey Buck…. an Evan Williams Black Label Bourbon, strawberries, lemon, Q Ginger Beer. It’s a perfect end to your work week. ($6) Pictured on the right is a Pinot Noir (Hangtime, from California), which pairs wonderfully with the menu items. ($9)


Pictured in the back is the creamy deviled eggs topped with smoked paprika, and bits of crispy prosciutto di Parma. ($6)

The Ahi Tuna Lettuce Wraps, a brand new item, are a great sharable item for the table. These small bites come with avocado, cilantro and ginger chili sauce. ($9)


Avocado Toast: blistered tomatoes, olives, basil, chives – a fun way to change up the typical avocado toast but just as tasty. ($6)


This Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich is an open-facing sandwich, a neat item we haven’t seen much in Dallas yet. This spicy meal comes with  Nashville hot sauce, pickles, housemade slaw and fries. (Substitute sweet potato fries for no extra charge.) Any of the sandwiches and burgers on the happy hour menu are $14 and come with your choice of a $6 drink (already included in the $14 price). Choose from a selected wine (7 oz pour) or beer.


Happy hour at Paul Martin takes place Monday – Friday from 3 – 7 p.m. Visit their website to check out the entire menu.
