Great place if you like catfish. Order at the counter and then they bring your food to you. Has always been busy when we have been there.

Wow! Looks for great seafood? You won't be disappointed here. You place your order and they bring the food out to you. The food comes out fresh and hot, so you may want to smell the goodness while it cools off. I ordered the combo with catfish, shrimp, oysters. It also came with fries, hush puppies, and coleslaw. All yummy.... More

Same great food, but this is their new location further out Malvern Ave. Give it a try and you won't be sorry.

While in Hot springs we were looking for a good place to try catfish and happened upon this restaurant. Pleasantly surprised! good food for sure. Atmosphere was semi-fast food (order at counter), but overall a good experience.

Be sure to go to the right address! (It's listed on their website!) we drove to the old address since TripAdvisor hasn't updated new address. Almost, didn't drive the extra 4 miles, but so glad we did! The fish was fantastic!! Super clean and friendly staff.

I've been seeing the crowds and knew this place was a must-try. We have tried the catfish and the fried shrimp, and both were excellent. The small fish plate came with 2 very large pieces of catfish, perfectly fried. The fries, hushpuppies and coleslaw were all very good too. It was a lot of food for a good price! This... More

This was some of the best catfish ever. Nice new building, friendly service and great food. Seven of us ordered fish and/or chicken. We were all pleased!! Go to counter and order, food is delivered hot and fresh in a few minutes. Self service drinks and condiments, the Whisker sauce is very good. Will certainly return!!! Hush puppies are good,...

Mr whiskers is a good place to eat? Think again and read all of his review. The owner of mr whiskers is taking his customers for granted. We have eaten at Mr Whiskers for several years now and we always know what we are going to get, good food, ok service, poor seating. This time we were in town and... More
