As others mentioned, the food and service are great, but so are the crowds. Three of our party had fried shrimp while I had blackened catfish. Both meals were excellent! The salad bar was plentiful and varied. The long wait in the Florida heat can be daunting, but there is a "priority" waitlist which is rather complicated and confusing, but... More

Be prepared to wait for a table because this place is popular. However, while you wait, enjoy a drink at the bar or kids can have fun on the playground equipment or take the board walk to the dock for a memorable family photo with the big ol' catfish. No restaurant around can beat their salad bar for price or... More

This is a landmark and should always be hit during a visit to the Daytona Area. You can't go wrong with their menu and it is always good.

This place has it all. Good seafood at a reasonable price. Right by the inlet, so there's a great view. There's a play area and pier in the waiting area. I would recommend this to locals and out-of-towners alike.

45 minute wait to be seated but after that, wow! Excellent food. Good cocktails. They even bought out a small chocolate birthday cake for my little girl who was about to turn 4. Her face was priceless! Well worth the $$

Excellent choice for a delicious lunch in Daytona Beach . Great seafood and great salad buffet . My family wanted to try alligator meat and they had fried alligator in their menu , awesome . The place is by the river and after you eat you can enjoy time outside taking pictures of a beautiful river scene .

We love Aunt Catfish! Unfortunately so does everyone else. You should go during an off time or call ahead. Even if you call ahead you may still wait an hour. We tried eating there in July but the wait was 2.5 hours. They have a great menu, salad bar and my favorite is they give you a cinnamon roll with... More
