I like Paula's food. It is excellent. Tasty, good flavor combinations, good wine selections with some of my favorites. However, the entire experience is just not all that, yet they think it is. The service is satisfactory most of the time, nothing more. I always feel like I am not truly welcomed but they will let me join them for... More

Paula's seafood restaurant is a wonderful place to dine. It's ambiance is casual, yet not noisy or pretentious. The seafood is top quality. As you enter, the fresh seafood is displayed in a case so that you can see how fresh it all is. The menu is varied, the wine and beer list is adequate. I thoroughly enjoyed my entree.

Paula's serves fresh seafood, prepared creatively and well. Food on the regular menu as well as their daily specials have never disappointed us. Service is excellent. It's our go-to restaurant for special occasions. Compared to other local restaurants, it's a little more expensive but well worth it. There is a bar in a connecting room. We have seen parents with...

I like everything about Paula's. The seafood here is simply some of the best I have every had. I am not sure how they do this being so far inland but they do with success. The ambiance is great with the tin ceilings and Great Wall decor and furnishings. The wine list is not extensive but has a nice selections... More

I finally got to eat here and it was everything I had hoped it would be! I was not disappointed by any means. Now 1 thing I do not recommend is ordering anything other than seafood (seems like a no brainier but) my boyfriend is not real into seafood so he ordered steak which was okay but you dont go...

Paula's has been open for a couple decades, I believe with different owners. I think that the current ownership has been in place since 2004. They are an excellent seafood restaurant, perhaps the best in Ft. Wayne (my opinion). Yes, they have steak options (examples, Filet Mignon & Tournedos Louis Armstrong) and Chicken (examples, Chicken Saltimboca, Orange Almond Chicken) and... More

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.
