My husband had fried shrimp and catfish and I had broiled tilapia. Everything was delicious and the owner was very friendly and attentive to details. We were very impressed with the food and the experience and would go back.

By far the BEST catfish in the state! And I'm not a seafood lover or a born Southerner! I frequent the whiskers, and I've never been disappointed!

The catfish is as good as I have ever had. Fries, cole slaw, hush puppies all very good. All the condiments fresh. I would go out of my way to eat here again.
