The catfish was fantastic, the rest of the food was very good but not five-star excellent. Catfish is their specialty, if we are in the area and go back we will stick with that. Service was excellent, super friendly, and lots of locals eat here.

It is kind of funny how myself, my wife, and my 6 year old ended up at PawPaws. We had just finished visiting the Cade's Cove museum in Maryville and joined the Cade's Cove Preservation Society. The CCPS members there told us we could get a discount at Smokin Joe's BBQ in Townsend. I love BBQ. Let's go. Now I... More

Paw Paw's was a wonderful find after a day at the Smoky Mountains. Delicious food, and great service! We'll definitely stop again if we're in the area again. This was the best meal we had on our trip. No one will leave hungry!!

Have been wanting to try this place for awhile. Finally stopped in today. We both got the 2 piece catfish dinner. HUGE fillets, fries, slaw & hushpuppies. Most of the time we would have ordered a 4 piece. Had we done that here, we would have had to take most of it home with us! You will be full when... More

Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor, and it did not disappoint. Arrived on Friday night and my family enjoyed a nice supper. This restaurant is 7 miles from the Pigeon Forge strip but nice drive there. Will return.

We found this place in brochure and decided to check it out. Don't judge it by the outside when you drive up. The catfish was amazing and the there was a lot of it. The boudin balls were great too!! Will definitely come back if we're ever in the area again!!

This was the best fried catfish and shrimp I've ever eaten. Hush puppies were great too, and I don't usually eat hush puppies.
