This is a great place to eat. Unfortunately, you need to be planful as to when you go because it is so popular, there can be very long waits. I would highly recommend the salt and pepper catfish. I love the salad and fixing bars that you can add to your meals - so delicious. Also, you get a delicious... More

Aunt Catfish is a must do in Daytona dining. I've been here several times, waiting a long time on some occasions and a much shorter time on others. The salad bar and fish camp fixins are so yummy. Don't worry if the wait time is long. Grab a drink and hang out on the deck, or take a walk down... More

Always love Daytona for its fresh fish restaurants. Aunt Catfish's has that plus a huge salad bar. Only downside here is the long wait for a table, but they do have a small playground for children. I will definitely go back.

The food was very good, though I will say somewhat overpriced. (Though not really any different from any other seafood restaurant we ate at while on this trip). The salad bar was a meal in itself, totally awesome! There were four of us & we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The wait was about 20 minutes which went by really... More

Yes, it's true you have a lot to choose from but nothing amazing, food is OK but really nothing spectacular. The fact is, you wait for a loooong time in the line and by the time you get seated you are hungry and that is way the food tastes better than it actually is. Too many people in the restaurant,...

We had an early dinner and did not have to wait. This place can get very busy, with lines out the front door. There is a dock to stroll down as you wait to be called. It's right on the water. The salad bar is famous and well worth the try. I had the catfish tenders. very good. We ate... More

Nice location on the river. Our food and service were very good. The salad bar is included with most meals and has tons of hot and cold items, including cheesy grits - yum! For my entree, I had the sea scallops and shrimp which were quite tasty. The portions are quite large - we all took home leftovers, including the... More

Aunt Catfish was recommended by our hotel clerk. It's a large place, very busy, efficiently run. One of the features is a "salad buffet" on which several of the dishes like broccoli salad are sweet as candy. The sweet potato fries were served with a super sweet dipping sauce. The fried shrimp also served with a cocktail sauce that was... More
