Good, but surprised that it was #1!

It is nice to see that Mr. Whiskers has had success in this location in Indiandale Plaza over the past several years, after seeing other restaurants come and go. We enjoy meeting friends and family at Mr. Whiskers, as tables can be moved together to seat a group of 10 to 12, orders are placed and... read more

I grew up in El Dorado AR. Catfish shacks all over that little city. This place is keeping that catfish shack flavor alive. If you truly love catfish, THIS is the place you HAVE to go.

I live in Hot Springs and didn't know about this place. If you like fried catfish then this is the place. Good service, you order at the counter and then a short wait because they fry per order so it's not sitting in the kitchen in a warmer. Slaw and bean sides. Reasonable price. Check it out.

Tried Mr. Whiskers for lunch based on the #2 in Hot Springs rating on Trip Advisor. My son and I had the fish and chicken and my husband had fish and shrimp. Everything was delicious! Friendly service in a casual atmosphere. We will be back when in Hot Springs.

I can't think of anything they could improve on! Fish, shrimp, hushpuppies, slaw, sauces, service, price, everything was perfect! We are visiting from out of town and we can't wait to go back!

Yes! We win! This place is fantastic! Hush puppies were killer, catfish and shrimp were spot on and the staff was so friendly. I was so full you could have rolled me out the door.

I grew up in Texas. My wife and I have lived in the deep south for years. We're definitely "foodies" and very strict critics of Southern fare. So, after hearing locals say this place was good, we thought we'd give it a try. 1. The fish was excellent. Batter was light. Most importantly, it was not salty. After living in... More

We heard folks talking about Mr Whiskers on our local radio talk show, but it just did not look all that impressive from the outside. One evening we were heading to another restaurant in that part of town, but it was closed. We gave Mr Whiskers a shot - and it has become one of our favorites! We live here,... More
