Wasn't sure of the restaurant when I pulled into the strip mall but decided to give it a try anyway. We were the only ones there but it was early. The place was great. Very wonderful oyster basket. My child got the kids fish and liked it. She is very picky about her fish so it must have been great.... More

Very good food! Lots of choices! My mother said it was very good fish, hush puppies and tarter sauce and she is very picky when it goes to fish. Small resturant so go early or be prepared to wait.

Went for lunch. Yes, because of what we've seen here on Trip Advisor. And Mr. Whiskers did not disappoint. Staff was friendly, patient, clear, efficient, and the food was great! The place was busy, but never seemed rushed nor frustrated. I'm glad I was drinking water, for on this day, they were out of Coke -- if you can believe... More

You want GREAT catfish then head to Mr. Whiskers! The fish is seasoned perfectly and fried to perfection. Great price and lots of food. Try the Whiskers dipping sauce - unbelievable compliment to your fish or shrimp. Do not waste your money on those other places - I come here every time I am in town. Very friendly folks! Give...

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.
