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.

Fish was a tad " fishy" tasting but lightly battered and tender. Not overly seasoned. Sweet coleslaw, no onions, good. Good crispy fries. Nice size shrimp, nicely battered. Good hush puppies. Everything cooked to order.

The fried seafood was the best we've ever had, but the burgers were so salty they couldn't be eaten that's why we gave it three stars.

This is a good place to get lunch. The service was a little slow, but very friendly. The food was good, we really liked the catfish. My kids loved the paper boat that their food came in. Clean and well maintained restaurant.

A new addition on "gotta go eat" list when we are visiting the lake. I always get the shrimp poboy, but fish is delicious also. Love the slaw too. Cute casual decor. Friendly staff and great location for us. I highly recommend it!

Yes they have a full take out menu which includes oysters and shrimp. You may view the menu on their website for more information. I am not a fan of oysters so I can not speak to the quality and flavor. However the fish and... More
