The Shrimp was some of the very best I had ever eat. Cooked just right and very fresh. Catfish was very good also. They have all the sides french fries, hush puppys, excellent cold slaw, cocktail and tarter sauce's. Friendly service. Better come early for lunch the place filled up while we were their.

This little "hole in the wall" place is very good. We just happened to be in the neighborhood and I was having a hankering for some catfish. So glad we chose to go here. I had heard the food was good but I had no idea how good. The place was clean and welcoming. The helpings are plenty and having... More

After seeing the high marks, we made our way over for dinner (be careful they close at 8 during the week) and were extremely happy we did, this was probably our favorite meal of our trip. All of the food is fried fresh and perfectly, plus the burgers were great. I really enjoyed the sauce bar with all sorts of... More

Mr whiskers is in a shopping center so it can be easy to miss. It's a small diner and the staff was incredibly friendly. My wife ordered my son a burger and he later said he had asked for chicken. One of the staff brought him a chicken strip after she heard the conversation. Well above and beyond what I've... More

Our family has a tradition of having fish frys so I have pretty high expectations. As such I found Mr. Whiskers catfish to be good but not great. I felt the food had a strong taste and was somewhat overcooked. I did enjoy the atmosphere, the service was really good and the people very nice. The people eating with me... More

We tried the oysters; catfish; chicken; and ribs. Everything was great, as were the hush puppies; friendly staff ensured a great time too.

You order at the counter and then sit down to wait for your meal to be served, nothing fancy but the food is outstanding. Great fried shrimp, catfish, hush puppies, fries and cole slaw. There is plenty of food in the combos or any of the plates, you won't leave hungry. They were out of ribs at 7 pm, but... More

My family has been visiting Hot Springs for years, but had never eaten or even heard of Mr. Whiskers. Mistake! After seeing that it ranked 2nd we had to see why. It is a very casual, out of the way place....but so worth the effort. Ribs were fantastic! As were the hush puppies (order the hush puppy basket!)! My crew... More

We visited during a really busy moment with a large family so there was a bit of a wait. But it was so worth it!! I had grilled catfish, my boyfriend had fried. Both excellent and better than most I've had. Don't miss the soaked salad. It's over the top good!

We were on vacation in Hot Springs and ate here based on the reviews. Ribs were off the bone, shrimp was prepared and cooked just right and the side were very good. And they give you your money worth in portions. I definitely recommend this place.
