Our Favorite Restaurant in the Daytona Beach Area

We LOVE Aunt Catfish's!! And always make a point to eat there at least once when we visit Daytona Beach. Can't say enough good things about their food, their service, and their atmosphere. Food can't be beat!

I had been to Aunt Catfish's on several occasions but not with my husband. He was pleasantly surprised. The hotel concierge had also recommended it. The salad bar is enough alone to make a good meal. We had hoped to have a guava cheese pastry cooked to order for dessert but they were sold out. Our server suggested the made... More

First time visiting here and I can't say enough about it! You won't go away hungry. The salad and fixins bar are a meal on itself. Everything is fresh. Catfish is mild and has a light cornmeal breading. Cinnamon rolls and hush puppies come with every meal and melt in your mouth. Be sure to order some homemade chocolate chip... More

We enjoyed our visit to this restaurant. I had the shrimp and grits and husband had grilled catfish. Both were excellent and came with unlimited trips to the salad and hot food bars - which were a meal in itself. Would definitely recommend and visit again when in the area. The only negative was the one hour wait - was... More

When we walked in, the place reminded me of a Cracker Barrel type place with the salad bar and whatnot, but the food and service was so much better than that. Our waitress had worked there for a long time and clearly loved working there and was proud of the food they served. The salad bar had tons of options,... More

We had dinner here one night on a recent visit to Daytona. I had looked at the web site, and kind of got the impression it was sort of an upscale Golden Corral, but we gave it a try. It was way better than I expected. They were pretty crowded, but we grabbed a seat at the bar and had... More

We like to try new restaurants, but sometimes you just have to go where you're sure you're going to get a good meal. Aunt Catfish's is one of those places. Food & service is consistently good. Their salad bar is excellent. Lovely river views from this waterfront restaurant. Always a winner!

There is usually a long wait for dinner so we normally do lunch. They have a small outdoor play area for children while you wait. The view of the river is beautiful. They have a large salad bar, hot bar is limited.

Stopped in for dinner and had only a short wait for a table - the place was packed. I had a prime rib, medium rare, which was excellent and large enough to take some home. My wife had the chicken with peppers and onions. We each had the salad bar and a glass of wine. The server was polite, helpful,... More

Friends introduced us several years ago and we have been back at least six times in the last three years. Worth the drive from out-of-town and be sure to specify indoor or outdoor dining. When you arrive expect to be told 35-45 minute wait time but rarely do you need to wait more than 15-20 minutes. This time we visited... More
