Best Seafood in Fort Wayne

Fort Wayne is my home town. We're not close to any salt water; however, Paula's would make you think that you are. I have eaten here 25+ times over the years, and I have never been disappointed. The enormous crab legs are the best! My parents went to Alaska and didn't have any that large. All the... read more

Six years ago this was one of our favorite restaurants. Our last two visits were not good. Our food just was not up to par. The food does not have the great flavor it used to have. It seems as this restaurant is focusing more on a large quantity of customers versus quality food. It is such a shame that... More

We had a good family dining experience at Paula's. Cioppino was fabulous! Scallops were excellent. Million dollar coffee was super. Nice wine list. Service was fine. A very nice place with a unique atmosphere tucked away in an interesting little neighborhood.

unexpected wide selection, fresh, well prepared, and excellent service for a smaller mid-west town. good menu selections, and very good size portions making the pricing an extremely good value. absolutely worth a visit.

We Love Paula's!!! This is certainly the best restaurant in Fort Wayne. Walleye & crab cakes are some of our favorites. Wonderful seafood salads for a lite bite. Nice selection of yummy deserts. My Fav the Carrot Cake. Don't forget when you're tired in a hurry or need some comfort food to stop by and get a quart of chowder... More

This a place for special celebrations for us. The food and the service are both great. Can't go wrong on the seafood dishes (almond walleye is a favorite), but we have found their steaks are good, as well.
