Had a family group of 12 eat here while getting together in Ft Wayne and what a great surprise. Absolutely fresh fish and shellfish with great presentation and quality through and through. Each of the meals served around me were greeted with enthusiastic relish by our group. My Crab Stuffed Whitefish, and others' Grouper, Lake Perch Piccata, Walleye Dinner, Blackened... More

Our who family loves Paula's! Their clam chowder is unmatched! Never had anything less than a fabulous meal here. It is the best place in Fort Wayne for seafood. Love the seafood counter in the front, too. It is definitely a must if you are in the area. However, make a reservation to make sure you can get in, and... More

By far the best seafood I've ever had inland. This rivals seaside eateries one might go to while on vacation. I was amazed that I could get such good seafood without driving down to the ocean. Wait staff could have been more polite and attentive. The food was great.

Have heard about Paula's for years, but never tried. When my father wanted to take me, my husband and oldest daughter to a nice dinner, we were excited to suggest it! Did not disappoint! Even with a food allergy, our waitress was very accommodating! Our 11 year old started with a regular menu and she even suggested the kids menu.... More

With the weather being so blah . . .I wanted soup for lunch. Since there are no good restaurants near my office, I went online and Googled "soup" and up pops Paula's on Main. As I called in my order, the person on the phone was a little abrupt, standoffish, and uninformed about cross streets, however my desire for good... More

I love this place. It's great for dinner, but lunch is a little less crowded and the same fabulous food. Absolutely make a reservation for dinner. Reservations are not necessary for lunch. Staff is great and nice casual atmosphere with a no rush feel. I have never had a bad meal here.

On a week's vacation to visit a friend who will be moving to St. Joe. Packed in A LOT in 1 week. On was a treat to go to a really, really nice restaurant close by, about 30 minutes. The place has a fish market in front room as you walk through. Then a couple of dining rooms. We sat... More

The seafood at Paulas is consistently fresh and good. You wouldn't think that in Indiana you could have the privilege of eating perfectly fresh oysters and shrimp and crab. But at Paulas restaurant and seafood grocery, the options are plentiful and delicious. The specials each evening are excellent. The chef is creative and has the benefit of serving food which...
