I will start by saying the service was excellent and everyone was so nice. The food was lacking imo though. The etoufee tasted scorched. Wasn't good at all. My husband got a crab cake pasta type dish. He said it lacked in flavor. I got the fried sampler. The oysters were very good but everything else was just average.

Arrived in town and did not feel like cooking so found this place & glad I did; it was very good. I ordered the shrimp po boy and the white chocolate bread pudding. Yum! Looks like I'll be going back before I leave to try the gumbo.

My wife and I were camping pretty close to PawPaws...we passed it many time and never thought much about it. After looking up on trip advisor the reviews are right, this place is excellent. The catfish and fried shrimp were perfect. Waitress said they were their most popular but we also had a Muffalatta which I would put up there... More

Had heard of this little restaurant from a few friends and wanted to try something different. I had a cup of the shrimp and sausage gumbo and my husband had the red beans and rice as appetizers. Both of us enjoyed both dishes and the taste was authentic Louisiana. We both had the catfish and it was some of the... More

I don't normally respond to negative reviews, but this woman has crossed the line. This review has nothing to do with our restaurant. She has a personal vendetta against my family. She has NEVER been in our restaurant nor is she welcomed here. My husband contacted tri advisor to let them know what's going on they would not remove this... More

Portions sizes were too small for the price. French fries were over cook. Did not return to fill tea glass and charge $.25 cent for water. Comments made by waitress had to use coins to pay for gas before coming in to work. We are residences of Sevierville, TN not tourist. We had been pass this restaurant many times in... More

From the moment you walk in, you feel like you are visiting Grandma and Grandpa, I love it! Southern charm and some pretty fantastic food. We had the sample plate to start and everything was so fresh and tasty. My husband had the catfish dinner, I had the ribs. The catfish was so fluffy, and not at all greasy. The... More

Had the chicken & sausage jambalaya and it was phenomenal. Clean place, super friendly staff. And their white chocolate bread pudding is to die for.
