The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Right down to the different tables and mismatched chairs. The food is always of the highest quality and prepared perfectly. Not the mention, they have the best seafood market in town! I have to say, this is my favorite place for seafood in town!

We went to Paula's to celebrate my birthday. It's an ideal spot for a special occasion. They are known for their great seafood and their fame is well -deserved. We shared appetizers and asked that they be brought out one at a time, so we could enjoy each one. We shared a wedge salad, which was great, then ordered the... More

Who would have thought in the middle of Indiana you could get such great seafood. We stopped in here on a Thursday evening. All of the entrées that we selected were very fresh and prepared exquisitely. Would definitely go back again when in Fort Wayne.

Paula's has the best seafood in Fort Wayne. The Key Lime Pie is to die for. A little pricey, casual atmosphere. The hostess & waitress were very attentive & very knowledgeable about menu items & daily specials. Oh did I mention the Clam chowder the best I've have west of Baltimore, MD. They also have a fresh seafood market, so... More

A good fish house with decent prices and good service. Eat the fish there or buy fresh fish to take home. Not a fancy place but very popular! You will not be disappointed.

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 fish is very... More

Myself, along with two colleagues throughly enjoyed this place. Food =5. Cleanliness=5. Service=5. Dining atmosphere=4. Value=5. I had the seafood sampler entree which included almond crusted trout, four medium seared scallop, two delicious crab cakes, four garlic mussels, fresh vegetables, and jalapeño tarter sauce. We had a sampler for the appetizer which included a wonderful large crab legs. The fresh... 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
