A great experience!

My family & I ate here on vacation and we loved it! The service was great, the restaurant is so neat being on the river, and the food was excellent! We will definitely return there when we go back to Port Orange.

This is one of those places that you must call ahead and get on the waiting list ( no matter what day of the week). Most of the time the waiting is over an hour. The hospitality and service is fabulous. Great place by the bay ( river) , very relaxing. We ordered some drinks and appetizers while we waited... More

We were there for lunch. A very good buffet. Ate from buffet and had soup. Had to carry my entree home because I was full.

You will need to call ahead to avoid an amazingly long wait. Aunt Catfish has been around for a long time. The food is good but heavy for my taste. The fish is fresh. The staff is accommodating. For me it's not worth the wait I only go when it's a special choice of a family member

I've personally ate here about eight different times and tried their variety of menu items both lunch and dinner. Weekends are a LONG wait unless you call ahead and make a reservation which you still might wait 1/2 hour or longer. It's always packed which would make you believe it's really great. It's good but nothing special...maybe the view if... More

Good wine list, great tasting food and plentiful portions will bring us back again! Waiter was friendly, prices reasonable and options on the salad bar and fish camp fixing bar were fresh and appropriate to accompany seafood. Hush puppies were hot and crunchy and cinnamon bun was warm, fresh, soft and yummy!

Sitting by the water working on of all things a grilled lobster and cheese sandwich. Was great. Husband had the catfish. Loved it. Good desserts esp mother in law's key lime pie we shared. And of course excellent prompt service.

Slowest service of any restaurant we have visited in the past five years. Seriously can say that. Food was good, seated in minutes and greeted by the server. Took our order less than five minutes after entering the restaurant. Got a good salad at the salad bar, finished... then waited nearly a half hour for our appetizer. Finished the fried... More

Great experience! Food and atmosphere was great, but our favorite part was our Server, Jeff (just turned 21)! We were taken back by his wonderful personality and efficiency! Very impressive! Aunt Catfish, you are fortunate to have him on your Team! We went on a Saturday night, were told it would be 1.5 hour wait-they worked fast and we got... More

This was the best catfish that I have eaten since leaving the gulf coast and SE Texas. Highly recommend this restaurant.
