Arrive early. This popular place is filled all the time, it seems. Our lunch consisted of a BLT shrimp wrap with beans, hush puppy, and a cinnamon roll. Yum, yum.

I have eaten at Aunt Catfish's several time. Sometimes there was a waiting line to get in. We had reservations. Most of the tables were being used - just a few remained empty. Our group of 14 had made reservations and two tables were already set up for us. I thought that their fish entries were expensive. Some of the... More

The salad bar is fresh with many selections and very tasty. The cinnamon rolls are to die for and they come with the meal. Be prepared for a wait, but call before you leave to get your name on the list.

Aunt Catfish was recommended by the hotel we stayed at -- and they suggested we make a call-ahead reservation, because there is always a long wait. It was a smart idea, because the restaurant was packed, with the outdoor area filled with guests waiting for a table. There was live music while we waited and the musician was so talented... More

Every one of our visits to Daytona has included dinner at Aunt Catfish's--and that spans at least 20 years. What's not to like there? Easy access right on the river just outside Daytona Beach Shores, the menu is incredible, prices are fair, and the food is delicious. We both had one of the "small plates", which we think is an...

I love seafood and I've eaten here on NUMEROUS occasions over the last ten years and I know lots of people who swear by it, but I think the food is average. Im no chef, but I think most of the food is reheated frozen. The atmosphere is nice, right on the water, other than that.. I'll pass. Give it... More

Although crowded, is well worth the wait. Great salad bar/fixin's bar and fresh fish. Price is reasonable, great service and always a smile on the staff. Salad bar is kept stocked at all times as well as the fixin bar. If your in the area you have to try it..Very healthy eating as well, if your on a special diet... More

Wow, It was my first time there. Food was very very good. Had the Shrimp scampi, clams and a new strip. I would go back again when I am in Daytona, FL
