First Class Catfish

I do not like seafood or anything with a fishy taste, however Aunt Jenny's catfish was absolutely great. Great breaded tasty catfish with no after taste. Served hot with steak fries, biscuit and jar of cold slaw. I ordered the all you can eat catfish and the price was reasonable, service was great... read more

The menu is small, catfish, shrimp and chicken for the most part. The catfish was very good as was the shrimp. Service was excellent and the food hot. I love any kind of seafood hot and this was right out of the deep fryer. Our waitress was young but very friendly and efficient. The place is older not fancy but... More

Been to Aunt Jenny's several times - usually very good but our last visit, a few weeks ago, was "off". Probably just an off-night for Aunt Jenny's. Cole slaw was dry and tasteless, hush puppy was burnt, hard and a waste. Catfish was pretty good but even it wasn't as good as usual. I hope their quality isn't going down.... More

We went for a late lunch on a Sunday and were hopeful after reading other reviews. We ordered shrimp creole (way too sweet) and senior portions of the shrimp and catfish. Tasty but nothing special. The floors are very sticky and the tea is not made with filtered water so it tastes like sulfur. The waitress was attentive and friendly... More

Awesome is a word I use a lot, but it really applies to Aunt Jenny's! Every thing from location to food is great! Service is great with very friendly staff. And the shrimp is so fresh! I love the gumbo and all the other menu items are great! Located in an old home on the water with giant live oaks... More

Not being a catfish lover, I was skeptical. BUT ordered the catfish and shrimp plate....and OMG! it was soooooo good. Large succulent shrimp and fresh delicious catfish. Could not have been any better! They bring out a crock of cole slaw and a basket of bisquits to each table. And you have a choice of sides to go with your... More

Sorry that this will not be a great review. Loved this place back in 2010 when I first visited, but this last visit just a few weeks ago was not so good. Atmosphere is nice, view of the river is great, but the service was just so so. The catfish was not hot or warm, not a lot of flavoring... More

The restaurant offers a lovely view and nice interior. The service was very good. Our waitress made sure we had everything we needed and our drinks were regularly refilled. The only drawback is the menu. To say that it's basic as best is an understatement. Having said that, the food was delicious. Just don't expect a lot of choices.
