As the title to this review might indicate, this is not the first time I have written a review of this little treasure along the Lake Erie coast just south of Lemington Ontario. My mother-in-law is now residing in Lemington and Paula's has become a favourite spot for a meal out for her. The first thing I noticed as we... More

This restaurant is very conveniently located on the main route to Point Pelee National Park. We arrived at 5:00 pm without a reservation but within a 1/2 hour there was a waiting line to get in. I believe it is best to have a reservation. I enjoyed a chicken ceasar wrap with nice roasted chicken and bacon. My husband ordered... More

We went here on Good Friday. Maybe because many other places were closed, but this place was swamped. 'Fifteen minutes' turned into an hour. Then we had to move because a table of drunks were too noisy for us to enjoy our meal (not the restaurants fault, but they didn't cut them off, either). My perch was unremarkable, and my... More

We've often had lunch here after a morning at Pelee. Service can be slow or fast, just sit and watch the bird feeders in the garden to kill the time. It's no longer the closest eatery to the park, just the second. Food is good, so despite any shortcomings it's probably worth a visit.

Excellent specials. Well lit. Great service. Went for the special of the day on Thursday and was very surprised at the selection. Fish was lightly battered with fresh home cut French fries. Great service with attentive server. Dessert was awesome. Everything very reasonably priced for family dining.

We went mid week early in the season. There was one other couple in the restaruant. They prepared my pickerel just the way I like it, pan fried in lemon garlic. My wife's perch was one of the best she has had. Will return again, real soon.

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.
