Hogwild, There is no excuse for cold food! We strive to make our food as fresh as possible. I'm headed to the kitchen now to straighten this out. Thanks for the review, we always try to learn for our mistakes. Hope to see you again!...More

The catfish is truly southern style-cornmeal coating not the flour type batter. Enjoyed it immensely! Reasonably priced in comparison to where we normally eat. Good size portions on the sides. May sound crazy, but I have to rate there french fries as some of the...More

The catfish is what Mr. Whiskers is known for and they were good, but the fried shrimp was great. I highly recommend them. We also had fried oysters and did not really like them. It was a good meal for a reasonable price.
