RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2016 via mobile

Was looking for something different for lunch and we landed on Mr. WHISKERS. The food was fantastic and staff was friendly and helpful. I had a shrimp po-boy and my wife had a combo plate. Both were extraordinary. The entire restaurant was spotless! We'll be back! More

Tried Mr. Whiskers for first time since their relocation. Still great with more space but same great service. Fired catfish as good as you'd want with plenty of sides , all good. Nicely priced, too.

Group of six on first visit, 4 adults and 2 children. Ordering was easy. Kids did the chicken tenders and hamburger (not fish lovers). Adults did different quantity but tried both shrimp and fish. Shrimp was cooked perfectly, breading was light and not heavy or greasy. Fish was good, filets were thin and long. We wish we had known how... More

This was our first time eating here. When we finally arrived (the address in the GPS is off - Mr Whiskers has apparently moved) the parking lot was full (we see why they chose to move). Upon entering the estiblishment, the tables were full and there was a line. The wait staff & cooks was doing a fantastic job of... More

My husband had fried shrimp and catfish and I had broiled tilapia. Everything was delicious and the owner was very friendly and attentive to details. We were very impressed with the food and the experience and would go back.

we had 8 people plus 3 kids and we all enjoyed our dinners. I had 2 piece fried catfish--big pieces--with the fixin's. Others had po boys, hamburger, oysters and all were top notch. But the catfish--oh, my! it is perfect--no muddy taste and not greasy. Hushpuppies are great, slaw is delicious. We were there on a busy night and the... More

Happen to be in Hot Springs and wanted some fish. I really did not want to drive that far out but I was tempted by the other reviews. Fish was good and hot but not quite over the top as I expected. However for the area, it is probably very good. Order was correct and we were served promptly. I... More

Good catfish is hard to find but this place is legit! Clean tasting fish, great batter, perfect hushpuppies, and the whisker's sauce if unlike anything I have ever eaten! This place is worth the drive from Little Rock.

By far the BEST catfish in the state! And I'm not a seafood lover or a born Southerner! I frequent the whiskers, and I've never been disappointed!
