“Great catfish, chicken and shrimp hand battered for each order!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

Trip advisor didn't steer us wrong! Looking for a good local place for local food, we tried Mr Whiskers based on its reviews. Excellent food! The seafood is displayed in the front case, and they hand batter your order. Decent beer selection, good prices, excellent sides (coleslaw, fries and hush puppies) and a nice, casual atmosphere. Thanks for the cookie!

“More than just catfish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Not there is anything wrong with catfish, mind you. I love catfish, especially fried. But Mr. Whiskers' has plenty of othe options as well. For a place known for their great fish, Mr. Whiskers' also has a great burger/cheeseburger. The dressing on the salad that I got with my grilled catfish plate was the best dressing I've had anywhere and made the salad the best salad I've had anywhere. The dressing was so fresh it was obviously house-made. This was our fourth visit, with many more to come.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Nothing fancy, just order and grab a table. Great food! Very friendly staff! The owner stopped by several times to apologize for the food delay, it really took no longer than any other restaurant and this was on a Saturday night at 7,had a beer and dinner was delivered, catfish, fries, and hush puppies hot and crispy! Yum!

“Fresh, Friendly, and Fantastic!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Fresh, Friendly , and warm. Not only does Mr. Whiskers get the Neverland approval. It was worth veering off the diet for. The fish and shrimp were scrumptious and the service was with a smile. A must if visiting Hot Springs.

“Excellent place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We have found our night out on the town place. We love their catfish, fried oysters. They are clean, good food, economical priced and all of the employees have smiles on their faces. Their sauces are all homemade and wonderful. I would highly recommend them for out of town guests. A little hole in the wall gem in Hot Springs Arkansas!
