My son and I realy like burgers and there are a few places in Hot Springs with a good one and fewer places with great ones.. Mr. Whiskers is in the top 3(too close to call) for sure. Will be back again! Burger and fries is a winner!

If you love fried catfish, this is the place for you. We eat here as often as my husband thinks we should. It's good everytime we eat here. They don't have the pinto beans that some catfish restaurants have, but everything is good! You order at the counter. Very busy on Friday and Saturday nights.

This restaurant was a great find on the side of 270 heading into Hot Springs. The atmosphere was pleasant and casual. The portions were generous, and there was a great variety of sauces for everything. We ordered at the counter and the courteous, efficient staff had the food out to us pretty quickly. And this was during a busy dinner... More

The catfish was a bit dry - too crispy to taste much, and i don't think there were very many spices. The chicken was moist and chewy, but again lacked some spice. Was good overall, just not the best.

We visited Mr. Whiskers on a Friday at noon. The place was quite busy. We ordered our food and it came out in a very short time. We were in the restaurant for a total of 45 minutes from the time we walked the front door until we got back in the car. We each ordered the two piece catfish... More

Got a two piece meal. Comes with french fries, hush puppies, and coleslaw. Did not have to wait long from time of order to when food was on the table. It was close to noon so it was busy and noisy. Wish they would add out door patio dining.

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 go wrong!

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.

Group of six on first visit, 4 adults and 2 children. Ordering was easy. Kids did the chicken tenders and hamburger (not fish lovers). Adults did different quantity but tried both shrimp and fish. Shrimp was cooked perfectly, breading was light and not heavy or greasy. Fish was good, filets were thin and long. We wish we had known how... More
