Servers are friendly and the perch dinners tasty. It is so close to the national park that you can go down for lunch and be back at the beach in no time.

Everything is pretty bland and the presentation is not much either as shown on their signature photo. Good service though and close to Point Pelee.

One of the local fish is yellow perch. It is a lovely sweet fish to die for. I'm not a fish person but this fish I would have over and over again. The service is good and you can order senior portions which is still very generous in quantity.

I will say service was good. I've been here before and so I know they do serve goods meal although can be a bit on the... More

This is a nice place with friendly service. The special was shrimp and pickerel which some in our party ordered. They really enjoyed the shrimp. Pickerel was nice as well. The Italian chicken was disappointing and tasted bland. All things considered, we would return.

I stopped by with a friend and saw their sign "Fish Lunch $10.00, Dinner $11.00" The joint is near the date to Point Pelee, one of Canada's national parks. The inside is nicely decorated. The patio where we sat is pleasant. Both the owner (Paula) and her waiter worked hard to convinced us that the advertised offering were too small... More

We make it a habit to plan our restaurant visits ahead of time, usually using TripAdvisor as a guide. This visit, however, was "blind", since we stopped just after leaving Point Pelee park late in the morning. And what a pleasant surprise! There's nothing particularly fancy about any of this, but our fish and appetizer were fresh and tasty, and... More

I was alone and looking for a really good dinner place for a Lake Erie yellow Perch dinner and thought Paula's had to be the place to go. I was promptly served by a very attentive waitress and anticipated receiving a really sumptuous meal.. Boy was I ever surprised to find out that could have done better in a just... More

It has been over a year since we last visited Paula's with some local friends and this time we had some friends from Windsor come for a visit and asked us to take them for a perch dinner here. I'm sorry to have to admit but we suggested other places but they had never been to Paula's and so we... More

After a day trip to Point Pelee, we stopped at Paula's to grab take-out dinner for the way home. The staff couldn't be any nicer and helpful. We were pulling a tent trailer and asked where to park, the manager came out and set us up a place to park while we waited for our food. Overall the quality of... More
