Couldn't wait to sink my teeth into some good ole Southern catfish! So glad that my family lives close to this establishment. The atmosphere is fun and friendly, and the food certainly did not disappoint.

Some of the best catfish I have had! Place is funky and fun and appropriate for lake community (decor with fishing/skies) super clean, everyone helpful! Only complaint is the cleaner they use is STRONG! It may have to be to cover up fish smell, but over powering when eating. But that is a small issue. The food is fabulous!

The fish was good and the shrimp was better. The fries and slaw was pretty good but the portions were small. They make their own Mr. Whiskers sauce and it was pretty tasty. You kind of serve yourself so you can't complain about the service!

While in Hot springs we were looking for a good place to try catfish and happened upon this restaurant. Pleasantly surprised! good food for sure. Atmosphere was semi-fast food (order at counter), but overall a good experience.

Be sure to go to the right address! (It's listed on their website!) we drove to the old address since TripAdvisor hasn't updated new address. Almost, didn't drive the extra 4 miles, but so glad we did! The fish was fantastic!! Super clean and friendly staff.

I've been seeing the crowds and knew this place was a must-try. We have tried the catfish and the fried shrimp, and both were excellent. The small fish plate came with 2 very large pieces of catfish, perfectly fried. The fries, hushpuppies and coleslaw were all very good too. It was a lot of food for a good price! This... More

This was some of the best catfish ever. Nice new building, friendly service and great food. Seven of us ordered fish and/or chicken. We were all pleased!! Go to counter and order, food is delivered hot and fresh in a few minutes. Self service drinks and condiments, the Whisker sauce is very good. Will certainly return!!! Hush puppies are good,...

Mr whiskers is a good place to eat? Think again and read all of his review. The owner of mr whiskers is taking his customers for granted. We have eaten at Mr Whiskers for several years now and we always know what we are going to get, good food, ok service, poor seating. This time we were in town and... More

Cozy little place to eat. I don't like Cole slaw, so I can't comment much on that. The fryed shrimp was ok, we got better in our home state, the catfish however is fantastic. That all I'll order the next time I'm here.
