Friends invited us to lunch, this is one of their favorite places to eat. We enjoyed a good fish dinner. The hushpuppies come in abundance, fresh and hot. The service was friendly and efficient. We will definitely go back.

Just an OK place. They badly need a better hush puppy recipe! Service is good. A little noisy. Prices definitely above the average for a catfish house.

I'm in town for work for the next couple of weeks and I know I'll be frequenting this weekend place. A coworker told me about it. Southern hospitality at its finest. Service was awesome, food was spot on the best whisker fish I've had. A must stop.

People come from all over to eat at the Catfish Hole. Whether it's a date night or you're having a birthday party, it's a good night out! The entrees they serve are all good, but what keeps you coming back are the hush puppies. Make sure to ask about the fried pies, too, if you need to satisfy that sweet... More

If you love all things fried. I have never had a bad meal here. I bit loud but the food is great. Best hush puppies ever.

Prompt seating and someone brings great sides to start with without asking when you're seated. Service is good and polite. Open and collegial atmosphere. Kinda pricey food but good, wholesome and all the sides you can eat. Froglegs, too! Pat, one of the owners, is fun to talk to. Arkansas Razorbacks hang out here a lot.

These guys have been fixin' catfish for years and know what they are doing. It's always cooked to perfection and out to the table fairly quick, but not to worry about the time because the delicious hushpuppies are on the table as soon as you are seated! I had the southern fried catfish fillets and my wife had the blackened... More

My husband and I recently visited this restaurant for the first time. My husband ordered the catfish and I ordered the fried shrimp. My husband liked the catfish but my shrimp was just average.(I have had better at Captain D's). The service was great. We never had an empty glass or ran out of hushpuppies which were pretty good. But... More

This place used to be on the top of my list. The fish was good, and they had options for every appetite (3 piece, 5 piece, and all you can eat). A few years ago it started to go downhill. If you ordered the all you can eat, they'd bring 2 pieces at a time. Then they did away with... More

Service is attentive and responsive. Food is average at best, catfish portions are thin filets which tend to be lacking in moisture and flavor. Price is excessive for quantity and quality. Restaurant seems to be running on its reputation, not its food.
