Our group of six couples had dinner at Paula's Seafood in March on a Wednesday evening. We all had wine and their seafood salad which was fresh, cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth. the wait staff was very efficient and took care of our table with speed and grace even though the restaurant was very crowded and noisy...full...

I am not a seafood person but went because others in our group are. The almond crusted Walleye with the jalapeno sauce was amazing as was the Thai Tilapia. It was one of those meals where everyone was raving every time they took a bite. I can't wait to go back.

We eat at Paula's at least once a month. The fish selections are wonderful. We have never been disappointed with a meal there and have been going for years. The caesar salads are excellent. The sides are fresh and never disappoint. The homemade rolls and butter start the meal off right and it gets better from there. We have settled... More

Paula's On Main is known for its seafood, having an on-site fish market. The restaurant is comfortable, with ample seating staggered throughout two separate rooms, both with bars in them. It is considered a "casual/upscale" place; however, I thought it was somewhat tacky to have large flat screen televisions above both bars, in full view of all the dining room... More

Have only frequented the market in Paula's on Main. Very helpful and friendly staff in deciding seafood choices to purchase. Also their sauces are good and unique. The jalapeño tarter is their best seller.

Paula's on Main is our favorite restaurant. The food is delicious, martini's are strong, price is very reasonable compared to others with similar offerings in the city and best of all is the service. We only frequent once a month, but when we do we are recognized and welcomed like old friends.

We used their adjacent party room for my mother in laws 90 birthday and it was perfect. Nicely decorated for xmas. Had plenty of space for 7 young kids to comfortably move around then had appetizers and the walleye. Must try even if you are not a fried fish fan or if like me don't eat fried foods

We love Paula's for its unique and warm atmosphere. Love to sit at the bar and have appetizers and cocktails. They serve mostly seafood (thus the name Paula's Seafood) and the food in wonderful. I would highly recommend Paula's for couples or for a group of friends meeting for dinner.

We always enjoy dining at Paula's in Ft. Wayne, IN. The bucket of shellfish is our favorite appetizer, as well as the fire shrimp. I typically order the triple shrimp entree and my husband orders one of their outstanding fish preparations. The house salad is also very good. Although the neighborhood leaves much to be desired, the food and ambiance... More
