“A Prattsville Landmark”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Been eating here for over 20 years, but looking at some of the clientele, 20 years ain't that long! I am still considered a fairly new customer. Sure the fish is good. You order a 2 piece, they give you 3, order a 3, you get 4 and so on. My wife loves the fixins that come with it. But the locals all give the Fancy-Footlong-Chili-Dog two thumbs up. I seem to always learn something new when I sit down and read the advertisements plasterd on the tables. You never know when you may need a your septic tank cleaned out or some bush-hoggin done. All in all, if you are ever hungry in Grant County, then the Whippet is your only choice.

“If you love catfish, You've got to go to The Whippett!”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

I live in PA now but am a southern girl, born and bred. When I go to Arkansas I always request at least 1 meal from The Whippett in Prattsville. It's not a big place and certainly not fancy but it's got the best catfish around! With your meal, you'll receive bowls of delicious pinto beans, hushpuppies and green tomato relish...all refillable by just asking! And the catfish is wonderful! The place is family owned and you can look at pictures of graduating classes from Prattsville High adorning the walls from back in the 1940's or maybe even earlier! Prattsville is out in the middle of nowhere going towards Pine Bluff but if you even near the vicinity it will be well worth your time to stop at the Whippett!

“Great Place to Stop for a Bite!”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

We live five miles from The Whippet, so we eat here about once a week. Their fried mushrooms are one of our favorites, but they have great fish and burgers as well. We sometimes stop for an ice cream cone too. Very good service as well!

“Great catfish here!”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

Great place for a catfish dinner! This place does catfish right and includes ALL the trimmings with a dinner. You get a "setup" with cole slaw, beans, and hush puppies all-you-can-eat... wonderful place to eat and the prices are reasonable.
