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!

The atmosphere and service were awesome! However the king crab was even better! Have not had such great seafood here in Fort Wayne so far from the ocean! The place was packed, yet service and quality were top notch! Definitely the place for that special occasion or just a great meal!

It's hard to find quality seafood in the Midwest (it's usually fried to cover up the fact that it's not fresh). However Paula's serves not only quality, creative seafood dishes but also a variety that you just can't find outside of Chicago or Indianapolis. The spectrum of palatable dishes is quite impressive and the ambiance is pleasant and quaint. You... More

I took my sons and one of their friends for a nice dinner and we were kept waiting and waiting and waiting. We had to literally get up and find a waitress or the water assistant every time. The problem was our waitress had a party of 10 she was catering all her time to. They should have given us... More

I really like Paula's. It's a great place for really fresh, top of the line seafood. The food options are on display as you walk in. The charm of the place is its electric layout. Clearly, this is is not part of a national chain. The inherent problem with Paula's is the fact that service always has been slow. There.... More

Wow what a find in an older industrialized section of Ft Wayne past the malls on West Jefferson. Being from New England I had to order the NE Clam Chowder and it was in the top three of all time for me and I seek chowders all up and down the New England Seacoast. Place was in an old rustic...

I ate here while visiting Fort Wayne on a business trip. I sat at the bar and was surprised by the excellent service. The bartenders were attentive and helpful. I had a wedge salad and steamed mussel app and both were really good. The wine list wasn't bad, but again the bartender was very helpful. The thing that made it... More

This was not a first visit to Paula`s. It seems as though my previous experiences were brighter. This last visit felt as though the blinders had come off. The menu is filled with fish that has been coated or fried..Where is the "fresh" in this dining experience? Fort Wayne is missing a truly amazing seafood restaurant...For a restaurant that is...

Surprisingly good - better than many seafood restaurants I've been to on the coasts. Fried Oyster app and Buffalo shrimp app were great! Other dishes were great as well. Definitely will go back again on next trip. Prices were great as well. Staff was very friendly.
