So Worth It!!!

The food is worth the wait, and you will wait, but you will be so glad that you did!!! The prices are average for the area. The atmosphere is casual and laid back.

I was in Port Orange on business, heard good things about this place and saw the reviews on Google so decided to check it out. I give it 5 stars for superb service, however 4 stars for the food. My crab cake sandwich was very tasty - and so were the sides that came with it - however it was... More

We had heard good things about this place from staff at our hotel, so we thought we would stop in for dinner. We showed up on a friday early evening and found out just how popular this place was. There was an hour and 25min wait, but as we had nothing else going on we decided to wait. The wait... More

We are in the area once a year and usually eat here. One thing we have learned is to go early. This place is very popular and fills up quickly. Usually we go around 6:30 -7 and have a 30 - 45 minute wait. This time we went at 5 thinking we would be ahead of the crowd. We were... More

Great food and great service. Had the fried catfish with the fixins bar and it was delicious. If ever in the area it's a must try.

Great food on the Halifax river what a amazing experience. If you're going to Daytona a a Sunday you must try Aunt Catfish's brunch I've been eating here for 30 years and it's better than ever.

Hubby and I ate here on vacation. While the lobster tail was very small, the food and sauces were tasty. The sweet rolls that came with all meals were to die for. Wonderful atmosphere.

We read reviews and took advantage of the call ahead seating. We called Aunt Catfish's around 2 PM for 5:30PM "reservation". When we arrived there were a lot of people waiting to be seated so I was worried we would not be eating anytime soon. We checked in, got our pager and decided to walk down the dock. We got... More

First went here on a Thursday. Wait was an hour and a half so we left and came back on late Saturday afternoon. The salt and pepper catfish was good and the crab cakes made with blue crab steal the show. The salad bar could be a dinner in itself. Service by cousin Kyla was very good. Cant wait to... More
