We go when we can but not on game weekends as the place is packed. I've not had a bad meal there is 8 years and enjoy the place very much. I noted two bad reviews but I've always had good service and enjoyed the food. They must be doing something right, it is a must go destination for many people and the joint is usually packed. The only thing i don't enjoy is the slaw but they make up for that with the hush puppies and boiled shrimp... Good stuff...
Food is really good. Used to go there very often to eat. My wife setup a party for 20 people and only 18 showed up. The owner got mad because we had 2 empty seats at the table and became really upset. We told him it wouldn't happen again because we would not be back. He said that is ok because he had plenty of business. I have not set foot in that place in 11 years.
The hushpuppies are great!! On the other hand they batter there fish WAY too much and it is not very tasty!! The waiters came too much at first and then when i needed a refill i had to wave somebody down after like 5 empty handed people passed! I just wasnt impressed and will not be going back!
my family and i used to go to the catfish hole alot acctually, until the owner came up to me because i didnt like the shrimp and told me that maybe i shouldnt ever order the shrimp again if i didnt like it. i thought it was really unprofessional for the owner to tell people what they can and cant order and we have never ate there since.
If you like hush puppies, this is the place to go! The food was fantastic and the service was wonderful! they brought fresh hush puppies constantly ... the green tomato relish was to die for... I can't wait to eat there again on our next trip to Arkansas (next week)...
My husband loves catfish and we recently ate here at the Catfish Hole since we live nearby. He was not impressed at all and he doesn't care to go back. He said they put way too much cornmeal breading on the fish. The other people with us liked the catfish just fine. I don't eat catfish so I had the breaded scallops and it was good. The hushpuppies were excellent. And I must add that the service by the entire staff, was amazing! You will not run out of anything on your table. Yes, it is very noisy in this place so it's not great for conversation.
We happened upon this restaurant and was in for a big surprise. We loved it!! I'm not even big on catfish, but there's was really good, and you can experiment by getting other foods like all you can eat shrimp, frog legs, clams and other things. Their hushpuppies are out of this world!!! Definitely worth the drive, just come prepared to wait in line on sat nights.
