We have always looked forwarded to eating here. We visited last night- service was great and folks are always friendly. The fish was ok and they have changed the homestyle fries to be really thick now which has turned us off and we won't return. They are so thick it's like eating steak fries. I hope management reads this and... More

The fried catfish is very good but my favorite is the fried clam strips. Be sure to ask for tomato relish if they don't offer it. The reason for 4 rating is the extremely loud atmosphere. The walls and floor are concrete so sounds echo rather than absorb. We eat here when hungry for fried food but not interested in... More

I was dragged here by another person that loves catfish. I went reluctantly because I'm not a fan of catfish and I've never liked hushpuppies. I'm 75 and I've never ate one that tasted better than a golf ball. The first thing I learned was that I love hushpuppies made by someone that knows how to make them. I ate... More

This place is a landmark in NWA and some say it has the BEST catfish, and while it is tasty, I've had fresher...pretty much straight from the lake! The sides are nice, just don't get sucked into filling up on them!

If you like fried catfish, chicken tenders or shrimp, then catfish hole is a must. I personally believe that they have the best fried shrimp in town. What few know is that they also have one of the better steaks in NWA. Before your meal they start you with hushpuppies which are great, slaw and tomato relish. Great place to... More

Good country style family dining in local catfish landmark. Friendly & attentive staff. Clean restrooms. It is an open floor plan so can be loud, but for a group or family, its great.

Friends invited us to lunch, this is one of their favorite places to eat. We enjoyed a good fish dinner. The hushpuppies come in abundance, fresh and hot. The service was friendly and efficient. We will definitely go back.

Just an OK place. They badly need a better hush puppy recipe! Service is good. A little noisy. Prices definitely above the average for a catfish house.

I'm in town for work for the next couple of weeks and I know I'll be frequenting this weekend place. A coworker told me about it. Southern hospitality at its finest. Service was awesome, food was spot on the best whisker fish I've had. A must stop.
