Food was great. Wife had #15 and I had the #14. Coleslaw was best we ever had. Thanks trip advisor. Definitely a place to visit if you are in the area.

Was looking for something different for lunch and we landed on Mr. WHISKERS. The food was fantastic and staff was friendly and helpful. I had a shrimp po-boy and my wife had a combo plate. Both were extraordinary. The entire restaurant was spotless! We'll be back!

The catfish is as good as I have ever had. Fries, cole slaw, hush puppies all very good. All the condiments fresh. I would go out of my way to eat here again.

We went as a group and were seated in a room where tables were so close one could not get out. The food was slow in coming and not hot when we got it. They cleaned the table behind us with I think Pine Sol so this make our fish taste like Pine Sol. One person could not eat his... More

Very clean catfish (the black strip that is fishy tasting was cut off - it's hard to find a restaurant that does this). Everything was very good. The only complaint was the black beans were very spicy. So spicy that I couldn't even eat them. A suggestion would be to note that somewhere on the menu. Other than that it... More
