My family went during spring break and we'll be going back as soon as we go back to Hot Springs! We loved it! We all had the fish or shrimp plates. And extra hush puppies because they're so addictive! Laid back and great food can't...More

Tried Mr. Whiskers for first time since their relocation. Still great with more space but same great service. Fired catfish as good as you'd want with plenty of sides , all good. Nicely priced, too.

My husband had fried shrimp and catfish and I had broiled tilapia. Everything was delicious and the owner was very friendly and attentive to details. We were very impressed with the food and the experience and would go back.

Good catfish is hard to find but this place is legit! Clean tasting fish, great batter, perfect hushpuppies, and the whisker's sauce if unlike anything I have ever eaten! This place is worth the drive from Little Rock.

By far the BEST catfish in the state! And I'm not a seafood lover or a born Southerner! I frequent the whiskers, and I've never been disappointed!
