Hadn't been to Paula's for while and we wanted one of great shrimp cocktails before going to a concert. Once there the food smelled so good we decided to have a meal. Glad we did. Service was excellent (in fact "excellent +", thanks Lindsey) Their seafood salad ($19.00) was so fresh and the seafood was plentiful. Couldn't have been better.... More

It has been a few years since our last visit and we were left to wonder why we are not regulars... Scallops were perfect, filet (steak) was cut with a fork and perfect. The Buffalo Shrimp appetizer was mind altering! This restaurant is a ft Wayne Top 5!

Paula's is a quaint and charming restaurant that serves seafood. You can also purchase fresh to take home if you like and that is kind of a problem for me as I am not much of a seafood lover and I really don't like the smell which hits you when you first walk in the door. Most people rave about... More

We love this place!!! My husband LOVES the crab legs!!! They even accommodated my vegetarian diet and prepared me a dish that wasn't on the menu (pasta with the freshest veggies) !! Cool atmosphere !! Always go here for special occasions!! One of the best places to eat in Fort Wayne!!!

Had a wonderful shrimp salad for lunch. It was a special. It was fresh and full of flavor. When we return to Fort Wayne, we will go back again! We went there because of the reviews and they were right.

We happened to be in Ft. Wayne on a house hunting trip. We knew some of the places that we wanted to try, and Paula's was one of those. We went there the first night and had a fabulous meal. Fish/seafood was extremely tasteful and fresh. After trying another restaurant the second night, we opted to go back to Paula's... More

Unbelievable taste and quality seafood for this area! I frequent SW FL and this is comparable but less expensive to their restaurants. I had the shrimp trio with sauces; every bite delicious! Our party of four all had great food. We will return.

We have been to Paula's several times, usually with guests. Paula's have not disappointed. I had one of the best seafood dishes I have ever eaten there. That was consensus at the table when I shared a bite. It can be loud in there.

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.
