Great restaurant with Real Homemade food.

Loved this place.. We had no wait, and they served breakfast, lunch buffets all day.. Nothing was instant or frozen, it was exceptional.

This place has been around forever and it's still as popular as ever. Be prepared to wait for an hour and a half unless you do their call ahead seating. That will cut your wait time in half more than likely. Their food is good but their claim to fame has to be their salad bar and their cinnamon rolls.

This place was a huge let down. We waited for 2 hours and that included calling ahead to get on the list. As we were waiting they sat another table that just came in after us (without having their name on the list) which was ridiculous. The salad/ fixins bar was a disappointment because the line was so long and... More

Went midday so didn't have to wait for a table. There were three people in our party. Our waitress was friendly and prompt, although did forget our appetizer. Coconut shrimp was not very flavorful. I tasted the grease from frying them over any shrimp or coconut flavor. BTW, you get 5 shrimp in the appetizer order for 9.99 and 7... More

The food here was okay but the servers were all really nice. The annoying thing is the wait and the servers are very forgetful of what you asked for. It is a good restaurant though. Maybe they had a bad night when I went there because this place was actually recommended to my family. They seemed average to me but... More

The only drawback to eating at Aunt Catfish is the wait to get in. On the upside we usually spend time out on their dock on the bay. We usually get to see some marine life... this year a hammerhead shark. Although they have solved that problem by call ahead seating. We just did not know they had started doing... More

I has been many years since we went to Aunt Catfish's mainly because we didn't want to deal with the wait. Tonight we decided to go and are so glad we did. The food was incredible and reasonably priced. Cathy was our server and was so patient with with the grandchildren... and us. One of our grandsons had the Kids... More

I love Aunt Catfish, but it seems like every time we try to eat there, we are always having to wait more than 1 hour or more. The last couple of days around 5pm, when they start serving dinner, the wait time is more than 2 hours. The food is very good, but not worth waiting for 2 hours. They... More

You can choose inside or outside dining (outside can be noisy, but you are in Florida. Eat outside) and the food is very good. I've had off the boat fresh, and this isn't quite (quite, mind you) up to that standard, but still very good. I always try to come here when I am in the area, I like it... More
