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

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.

The name says Paw Paw's Catfish Kitchen, but they do serve Cajun food. Maybe it used to be called Kajun.... Service: That is what makes this place special. Friendly, attentive & appreciate. Food: Most of the customers were getting catfish and other fried items, but they have crab cakes, po-boys, hamburgers, Cajun items & very good desserts. It was very... More

The food was awesome. My whole family loved it. The nice old lady working there (sorry for not knowing your name) was very nice and really seems to care about her costumers and made sure that everyone had what they wanted.
