Located in upper class residential area not far from Mudd Island. Enjoyed the lobster special on Wednesday. Also had a great vegetarian special in our group. Regular menu a little pricey. Wait staff friendly and helpful. Definitely a return trip is warranted.

We stayed at the River Inn of Harbor Town and enjoyed a light dinner...soup and salad. Very good...we would definitely stay at the Inn and eat at Paulette's when we visit Memphis in the future.

Our organization recently had a banquet at the River Inn (owned by Paulette's). The staff, especially Patrick and Kelly, were two of the friendliest and most accommodating servers/bartenders I've ever met. They really know how to help folks have a wonderful time! The food was great, and the river view is spectacular at sunset. Thanks again. We will be back.

$15.00 lunch was well executed by attentive staff. Easy free parking a plus. You need a car to access from downtown since it is on mud island.

Food good, service great. Always a relaxing meal. Near the river and Harbor Town neighborhood which has a different flavor than south downtown.

My wife and I stayed at the River Inn recently and ate at Paulette's a number of times. Each time, the service from our waiter, Patrick, was outstanding. The food was excellent as was the ambience. When we come back to Memphis, I know where we'll be staying and eating!

Paulette's has long been a popular restaurant in Memphis & the locals all know why! The popovers are a delicacy, along with the homemade strawberry butter! For dinner, Fillet Paulette is my all time favorite! It melts in your mouth! Salads are always good as are the daily specials! Well worth the cost of a good meal!

Watching the sunset over the river from the elegant dining room is very romantic. The stuffed mushrooms and frog legs were excellent. Quiet spot with great service.

My friends and I hosted a bridesmaid luncheon this past Saturday at Paulettes. The food and service were wonderful. Thank you Patrick and Kelly for all your hard work and assistance. Much appreciated.
