Had me reeling!

Stopped by because of the reviews and was not disappointed. The chicken was really moist, and the catfish was cooked perfectly. The shrimp was okay, but the breading on everything was hands down delicious. Just enough crispt and a little sweet and savory. Whatever you order, make sure you get extra... read more

We planned the time of our arrival to Hot springs so we could eat lunch at Mr. Whiskers. AGAIN This is a place you will find the locals eating. And for sure the reason being....great catfish. I try not to eat much fried foods, but this is just too good to pass up. The menu is on the wall and... More

We first tried this place because of TripAdvisor reviews and we’ve now lunched here several times. Each time the food has been consistently good. It’s nothing fancy just a small place in a strip mall where you can get a delicious seafood lunch for two for around $20. We’ve found we can share a single large combo basket and come... More

On our Hot Springs weekend trip we put this on our "Eat Here" list after reading TripAdvisor reviews. We walked in on a Friday night and it was busy. There wasn't anyone seating folks so we asked the man at the register how we get a table. We ordered, then eyed the room until we saw someone finishing up, and... More

We had catfish, ribs, baked beans, loaded baked potato salad, coleslaw, and hushpuppies. It was hot, fresh, and delicious. They also serve oysters, shrimp, and chicken. They offer grilled plates too. Worth the stop and prices are reasonable. Will eat there again.

We ordered the fried catfish and the ribs - if this place was near where we live we'd go all the time. We loved everything about this place. Super cheap, fast and great quality

If you are looking for something simple and delicious, then this is the place for you. Good food and reasonably priced. Everything was tasty and was served in a timely manner. Would definitely come back when in the area.

We ate here after a long day digging for diamonds! Our party was in the mood for some non-heavy food and we were surprised at how good and fresh the salads were (and of course the catfish was excellent too). The only thing to note is that if its your first trip there - order first at the counter, get... More
