Good catfish, shrimp, and surprisingly excellent oysters. Overlook the outside appearance and you will find a pleasant interior. The staff went beyond my expectations to be sure that we were happy with our meal. They seem to genuinely care about the quality of their food, and it shows.

I had the #3 with a side of green tomatoes. The catfish was fresh not greasy and real good. If your in hot springs eat here.

I agree with those who wonder why this place is rated so high! My husband and I ordered the catfish baskets. Cornmeal coating is very bland. Hushpuppies and coleslaw are good! Not as clean as I would like. Sorry, we've had better!

best catfish in town and I love catfish. The restaurant is small and quiet but they could get better chairs. They have the best homemade house sauce around. the owner is very friendly and nice and his workers are busy working all of the time. The catfish meals are bit pricey but the food is so good who cares.

Back again for our family vacation and Mr. Whiskers is the first place we eat at when we get here. Our family loves this place. The food is delicious and the staff is great. Can't wait to get back again to this place. We are never disappointed!

Our family of 4 all had "basket meals" and everyone of us enjoyed. One grilled catfish, one oyster Po-boy and two chicken strips. Hush puppies were also excellent

I know good fish, I've eaten it for over 50 years. When we came in two young men, whose names I inquired of, Darius and Anthony; greeted us with great enthusiasm! This fish was cooked to perfection, amd I found out Anthony had been cooking fish for 20 years. The amazing thing he doesn't look much more than 20! This... More

I compare this to Long John Silvers. Read the reviews and was expecting something better. It took forever to get our food. Everything tasted the same. The hushpuppies were burnt. Located in a bad part of town. Won't be going back.
