“Good catfish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

I grew up in Georgia and my older brother provided catfish for several popular restaurants. He could prepare the very best catfish I ever had. This was not as good as his but it is a lot better than you will find in most places. The breading was crispy and the fish flavored nicely. Catfish is very mild so it doesn't take much. Just can't understand the places that put garlic in their breading. If you like good catfish you should try Mr. Whiskers.

“Delicious Catfish - perfect breading”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, my wife & I went there to enjoy some Southern comfort food. We loved it. There is a fine balance you have to have when you cook catfish, cook it too long and it is dry and hard, too little and yuck. This was perfect. The breading was flavorful but thin enough not to overwhelm the catfish and not greasy at all. They have a really good sauce that compliments it well, aptly named 'Mr. Whisker's Sauce'. The fries were crisp, the coleslaw was just right and the hush puppies were hot and delicious. We added a side of the tomato relish and it was excellent as well.

“Yummy fish and shrimp!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

The catfish was perfectly battered and cooked, the Shrimp large and juicy. Staff was friendly and helpful even though this isn't a full service kind of restaurant. We called because we knew we would be there very close to closing time and they waited for us before shutting the kitchen down for the night! Everything was very fresh. The hush puppies were great - crunchy on the outside and moist and flavorful inside. Definitely worth a stop!
