This place is a landmark in NWA and some say it has the BEST catfish, and while it is tasty, I've had fresher...pretty much straight from the lake! The sides are nice, just don't get sucked into filling up on them!

If you like fried catfish, chicken tenders or shrimp, then catfish hole is a must. I personally believe that they have the best fried shrimp in town. What few know is that they also have one of the better steaks in NWA. Before your meal they start you with hushpuppies which are great, slaw and tomato relish. Great place to... More

Good country style family dining in local catfish landmark. Friendly & attentive staff. Clean restrooms. It is an open floor plan so can be loud, but for a group or family, its great.

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

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.
