Paula's Crab Cake

Paula’s on Main

If there’s an authority on seafood in Fort Wayne, it’s Paula’s on Main. The menu is exquisite, and the restaurant also features a market counter with fresh fish for purchase.

Co-owner Paula Phillips assures guests that all of the seafood is sourced ethically and sustainably. This includes the chef-prepared restaurant meals as well as the fresh catches sold in the adjacent market.

“Any of our salmon dishes are a great choice,” says Phillips, “The salmon we use comes from Faroe Island. It’s organic and raised without antibiotics.” 

Paula’s is open for lunch and dinner Monday – Friday, and dinner on Saturday. 

Location: 1732 W. Main Street, 46808 


Tolon is a farm-to-fork restaurant that sources only sustainable seafood.

Nicky Nolot co-owns the restaurant and recommends the BBQ salmon as well as the sea scallops. The mussels have also received rave reviews on social media (check the seasonal menu for pricing and availability). The seafood here is sourced sustainably. 

Tolon is open for lunch and dinner Tuesday – Friday and dinner on Saturday.

The Oyster Bar

The Oyster Bar is a Fort Wayne favorite, with a rich history dating back to 1888. The Oyster Bar has never moved from its downtown location and has weathered many changes in the downtown landscape and even survived prohibition. This is the place to be if you’re looking for oysters on the half shell plus a full, seasonal seafood menu. 

The Oyster Bar is open for lunch and dinner Monday – Friday and dinner on Saturday. Reservations are recommended. 

Location: 1830 S Calhoun Street, 46802

Old Crown Coffee Roasters

Old Crown Coffee Roasters offers a revolving, chef-prepared menu beginning Thursday night until they run out the following weekend. The menu almost always features one seafood dish. Order it. I get the seafood nearly every time and it never disappoints. Recent seafood features have included a blackened catfish and an Asian-style grilled yellowtail. Old Crown puts a lot of thought and local ingredients into its menu and each Thursday starts a new adventure.

Chop’s Steaks & Seafood

Chop’s Steaks & Seafood is locally owned and operated. They’ve been in business since 2003 and have grown into one of the top seafood restaurants in Fort Wayne. The ahi tuna is some of the best in the region and is available for lunch and dinner. The seafood glory doesn't stop there, as Chop's has an extensive menu of options with rotating seasonal specials. The ambiance is upscale and pleasant with private dining available.
