Lovely time!

Aunt Jenny's is like being at someone's aunt's home, who has access to amazingly fresh seafood and lots of it. We loved the biscuits, cornbread, and coleslaw- the catfish and shrimp were fantastic. I had a baked sweet potato which came with a side of cinnamon sugar. As a gentleman at the next table... read more

Great place for catfish and seafood. Most everything is fried is the only draw back. Kids under 5 eat free. It has a nice view of the back bay.

Pretty good fish. Huspuppies are ho-hum. I do not care for the sweet potato wedges, but lots of folks find them to be awesome. It's basically the only game in town if you're wanting catfish. Fortunately, the catfish is pretty good.

I was craving seafood and found this place on TripAdvisor. Seating was fast and we were immediately served complimentary hot biscuits and coleslaw. We had a nice window view of the water and watched boats go by. They had great food and the fried shrimp was out of this world.

I was very pleased with the fried catfish and shrimp. The fish were thin and crispy and the shrimp were very nice sized. I am not big on coleslaw but they sat a tub down in front of us and I figured why not? It was so crisp and refreshing! My husband had the catfish anthony and he loved it!... More

This is a resturant in a old house with a great view. Food is very tasty and the service is above most resturants that I ate at in area. Food is served family style and more than enough. I had catfish and shrimp and it was some of the I have had . If in area visit this place.

Good ole southern fried catfish and the view of the bay is great. Limited menu, but if you are in the market for fried fish it's the place to be.
