Great Seafood!

I recently visited Paula's for a weekday lunch while in town to visit family. The restaurant wasn't overly crowded at noontime - maybe because it is not walking distance for downtown workers. However, the food was fantastic. We shared a double order (only one to an order) of the Marylad Crab... read more

I've been a fan of Paula's since the first time I dined there over 18 years ago! It's upscale menu and service. Friendly and very accommodating!! They specialize in fresh seafoods you can see in the ice case prior to preparation! The atmosphere is colorful, creative, whimsical, cozy yet still classy and artistic with a large collection of local wall... More

We recently had occasion to visit Fort Wayne In and dined at Paula's on Main. What a treat. One of the best seafood meals I have ever eaten. Everything was fresh from their seafood counter at front. All of us had a different dish and all were wonderful. Very nice ambiance and professional service. The shrimp cocktail was served with... More

We took some visiting European customers to Paula's for lunch and they were impressed. Our server was professional and described the fish, seasoning, preparation and size of each dish perfectly. She was attentive without interrupting our business discussions. Although it wasn't offered as an appetizer, Paula's prepared crabcakes so they could be shared. They were moist and flavorful with lots... More

Very nice atmosphere! We had crab legs and the sea bass which were wonderful. Our service was very good. The only complaint was that the food was not horrible hot, just warm. Excellent flavor though!

I took a friend and myself to lunch to a place we had never eaten. She ordered fish tacos and I order the Shrimp and Scallop Scampi with pasta and shredded pieces of zucchini. It was absolutely the perfect lunch. I had some left over to bring home and it heated up just the way it tasted when it was... More

The first night we tried to eat here, the first question we were asked was, "Do you have a reservation?" And of course I didn't realize one was needed, so we made a reservation for the following night. The wait was totally worth it! I ordered the combo platter which consisted of 2 scallops, 1 crab cake, and an almond... More

Most likely the best seafood place in the area. Walleye done right. Crab cakes are essentially all crab meat, and good size. Jambalaya is great, and King Crab is out of this world. Check out the seafood counter when you enter. A++
