The portions are so perfect, I didn't have room for anything else yet didn't feel overly stuffed. The atmosphere is great as well. I was once a server so I'm... read more

We had not been to Paulette's since the night we were engaged 4 years ago. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is wonderful! Our server, Darren, was engaging and very kind! He had great knowledge of the menu...He recommended the Kahlua-mocha parfait pie (k-pie) for dessert and it was unreal! It was the biggest ice cream pie slice I... More

We were delighted to find this place after reading amazing reviews on Trip Advisor. We had a beautiful table overlooking the Mississippi River and happened to arrive for the Sunday Brunch. The crepes were amazing as were the popovers with homemade strawberry butter. Lovely, dining room - cozy - and the service was superb!

Paulette's has an excellent restaurant on Mud Island which is right on the Mississippi river. The Island is really nice and well kept. It is easy to drive into down town or take a cab. The food is excellent and is pretty busy all the time. However, you can sit inside or outside on the porch. We ate there several... More

Okay, so I was an avid 20-year customer of Paulette's back when it was located in Midtown Memphis, before the whole place fell apart due to neglect and relocated to Harbor Town Square to be reborn as a hotel restaurant. The owner got old and tired and lost the great cooks and staff that had been the source of the... More

The popovers with strawberry butter are amazing.It is worth the trip here just to have these. However, everything on the menu is very good. The chicken crepe is wonderful.(It has been on the menu for 40 years)Great service. Had a party of 8 and made reservations, which I would recommend. The french toast, eggs Benedict, crab cakes, strawberry crepe, etc....no... More

As previous comments noted "she provides service with sass"!! Crab cakes and salmon wonderful. Eggs were just okay and accompanying potatoes were NOT good - Donna kept offering substitutes from kitchen. All... More

We only had breakfast here for the two days we stayed at the Hotel, but the service was impeccable and the food was very good, if you can do a very good breakfast then I think you would be in safe hands for dinner. We checked the dinner menu out and it looked very good but unfortunately were not there... More
