“Authentic Cuisine and friendly staff!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

We had a great experience at Paw Paws! The jambalaya was amazing and their poboy sandwiches are authentic and delicious! We stopped here because it was easy to get to from our cabin, and definitely will stop there again when we visit the area!

“Great authentic Cajun food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

We used the previous comments on Trip Advisor, and found them to be accurate. The food and service are both outstanding. We chatted with the owner and server for some time and found them to be friendly and genuine. The po'boys and etouffe are out of this world. Off the beaten path, but well worth the drive.

“Good Authentic Cajun Cooking!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

The food here was very tasty and authentic Cajun cuisine. Best jambalaya I've ever had! Service was excellent, best food in Wears Valley. The deserts are home made and to die for. I'd definitely come eat here again.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

We live in Sevierville, and are in Wears Valley once a week to visit the produce markets. After several times of passing by, we finally stopped. I'm glad we did. This is a small establishment that has food with big flavor. I had the shrimp and French fries basket with a side of red beans and rice. It was delicious. Not to spicy, but just enough seasoning. The staff there are amazing. Some of the most friendly people I have met in a long time. They make you feel welcome from the moment you walk in the door. We will definitely be returning.

“Best food in the mountains”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

After passing this restaurant several times my husband and I decided to stop. We were so glad we did. The shrimp po boy and jambalaya were soooo delicious! Then we had the bread pudding which is to die for. On top of this the owner is so friendly and makes you feel so welcome there. We will definitely be going there every trip we make to the mountains!!!
