We ordered the large catfish dinner with sweet potato. Catfish filets were thin & over cooked with too much cornmeal. Potato was ok. Had the bread pudding for dessert, but it was more like a cake with sugary sweet sauce. Have had better food elsewhere. Cannot recommend.

We had lunch here with a group of 25 people. First off, the men's bathroom toilet was out of order. And there was only one. After being seated with our group in front of chipped, worn plastic plates, we were given biscuits and coleslaw family style. Did not try the coleslaw as I'm not a fan, but one basket of... More

Aunt Jenny's is in a tough location to find if you are not familiar with the area but it is well worth the trip. The view from this resturant is beautiful after you eat take a walk around the property and walk down to the water. This resturant is a real true southern delight. Who could ask for more? Hush...

We had to change tables 3 times because of sticky table cloths. The third table was still sticky but not as bad as the first two. Apparently they clean the tops of the tables but not the part of the cloth that drops down the toward the chair. I got my pants and shirt dirty from the honey that was... More

Three words...Just do it. Stopped in at Jenny's based on other reviews and was not disappointed one bit. All you can eat shrimp and catfish kept coming and coming until I couldn't eat one more piece. Extra light breading on the seafood and fish was excellent Baked sweet potato was perfect, as were the complimentary coleslaw and biscuits. If passing... More

Good sized portions. The catfish is great, as-is the shrimp. Have had both. I can't eat the "all you can eat. With the slaw and homemade biscuit before the meal comes out, it is all I can do to finish the main meal. And, I want so badly to e at just a little more. Shame on you Aunt Jenny... More

How can you go wrong with all you can eat catfish? Tastes great, beautiful scenery. Great for large groups in one of the private rooms.

For some great down-home cooking, this is one of my go-to favorite restaurants. The menu is fairly limited (choice of catfish, shrimp, or chicken) and a few sides, you would have to be extremely hard to please if you didn't find something you liked. My wife gets the fried catfish and I get the fried shrimp and she shares her... More
