“Only Catfish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2012

If you like good catfish and fixins....this is the place to go. Can't say much about the rest of the menu....guess they have to serve other stuff....but you go there for the catfish. Good slaw and some pickled stuff on the side. Service always good. Prices modest and family friendly.

“Best catfish...ever!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

The Catfish Hole has the best catfish you can buy. Never fishy, always crispy and delicious. The hushpuppies, coleslaw and green tomato relish is equally good. The dining experience isn't that great due to the noise level of the restaurant. The wait staff is generally excellent, all very pleasant University of Arkanksas students. If you want great catfish and all the fixins', this is your place!

“Catfish”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2012

I absolutely love the hushpuppies here, but the last two visits I had overcooked catfish that was rather salty. Not bad for a catfish restaurant and really about the only place near to me to get catfish.

“Great Food Great Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2012

This place was a fun treat for us. The food was excellent and the price very reasonable. It helps if you like the Arkansas Razorbacks as they are the main theme inside but we did see one person wearing an OU shirt that made it out alive!! We highly recommend it and would go back when in the area.
