I had the lunch catfish basket. The catfish was good- lightly breaded and tasty pieces, served with fries and slaw. It was fairly crowded on a Wednesday. The service was incredibly slow. I sat approx. 10 mins before I was approached about a drink order. I then ordered my drink and my entree. From there the wait was another 37... More

I winter in Daytona Beach and quite often go to Aunt Catfish with friends. The fare is a mix of seafood and regular food. There is a small but well-stocked salad bar. This restaurant is so popular you have to get there before 5pm in order to get in right away. You can call ahead with your arrival time. The... More

Aunt Catfish's On The River is located in an old building full of character overlooking the Halifax River. After a 15 minute wait we were seated by the window with great views of the water. We both got the $14.99 lobster and shrimp special they were running and as good as that was the cinnamon buns might have topped everything.... More

First - if you decide to go to Aunt Catfish, make sure you call ahead and put your name down for a target time. This way you will at least be in their system when you arrive and will help cut down on the wait time. By doing this, plan on spending upwards of 45 minutes to an hour before... More

This place doesn't look like much from the outside but the inside is so nicely decorated and has beautiful views of the river. The brunch was delicious. So much food to choose from, I'm not sure I saw all of it. My friends have been raving about it for years and im glad I finally took their advice. I will... More

Go frequently as they have the best seafood in the county. They currently have a lobster special thru October 11 for $14.99 either one whole or 2 tails. Fantastic salad bar and the sweet rolls melt in your mouth. Quality food for moderate price.

An absolute must place to eat while visiting Daytona Beach. We eat there about 2 to 3 times while vacationing. Excellent food and a very friendly atmosphere. Ask for a seat next to the window to watch the sea life on the inlet bay. Then walk out on the pier to take pictures.

Lot's to select from with very good prices. Salad bar was awesome along with a "fixins" bar. My wife had the $14.99 lobster special, one tail, 6 shrimp. I had coconut shrimp that's was great, not greasy and included the salad bar! We had a table with a very nice view of the water. Make reservations to save time to... More
