One of the best seafood meals I've had in Indiana. Love the fish market so you can take fresh fish home to fix. The guys behind the counter were even helpful on how to best fix the fish. Hard to find a better seafood option in Indiana.

Been here a few times now - no disappointments. Tuna steak was cooked perfectly; buffalo shrimp, peel and eat shrimp, and fried oysters apps were fantastic. One of the group had king crab legs for the entree - said it was some of the best quality and prepared he has had (and he lives on the coast and knows seafood).... More

This is a yearly pilgrimage when visiting friends in Ft. Wayne. Always good food with fresh salads, diverse wine list a little too focused on cabs for a fish restaurant, and cozy bistro atmosphere. The variety of entrees is impressive with preparation varied enough to please any taste. Prices are most reasonable. Cynthia is a fabulous waitress, pleasant , attentive,... More

This is one of Fort Wayne's best restaurants. I frequently take clients to lunch here. It is also a birthday favorite for family dinners. Atmosphere is eclectic and "cottage". cozy and comfortable. Fresh sea food is exposed for viewing upon entry. Favorites are the Walleye planks for an appetizer, the clam chowder. I have never had a bad entree. My... More

We enjoyed lunch at Paula's twice in the last month, and both times, the food was fresh and nicely prepared. The blackened salmon with blue cheese was a perfect combination of the mild fish with the strong cheese and spicy blackening ingredients. The fried walleye was steaming hot with perfectly seasoned tartar sauce. Server was attentive and proactive. Even though... More

We've been there several times and it's always very good. We generally sit at the bar so table space is not an issue. For two of us we usually order the walleye plank appetizer and split the salmon salad. Plenty of food. The service is always good, Very pleasant and attentive.

Seems to be a popular restaurant. Atmosphere, when cramped for space seems way too busy. Service suffers. Noise is way too loud! Food is good!
