Great location, great food, great waitstaff, did I say great food?? Was greeted by friendly host and waitress. Very large menu to choose from. I ordered the 20 piece shrimp with onion pedals, coleslaw, hush puppy and cinnamon roll. Everything was delicious and had enough to give my husband the extra shrimp I couldn't eat. Shrimp was lightly breaded and... More

We went here with our daughter and son-in-law for Thanksgiving this year. Each of us was blown away by the service and the selection of foods on the buffet. I believe this may become our new Thanksgiving tradition and what's even better...no clean up! I would recommend this restaurant to ANYONE!

Food is always good, love the hot bar with grits and sweet rolls, but be prepared to wait upwards of 1-2 hours for a table. My favorite time is brunch on Sunday's where the chef's will cook pancakes for you with basically anything you want in them, from Oreos to peaches, as well as omelets! You will always leave full!...

Tip...call ahead for reservations!!!!! We didn't and had to wait two hours. Tip...Make sure to go to center of restaurant to sit and wait and sip your cocktail while you wait. We went late Thanksgiving afternoon hoping to beat the crowd...NOT. Adequate salad bar comes with meals. One of us had the Thanksgiving buffet with all the fixin's and the... More

I had the Shrimp & Grits and it was great. The cinnamon rolls are to die for. The only bad thing I can say is the salad bar plates aren't big enough for all the options.

Things got off to a bad start two days before we entered the restaurant. I called to make a reservation. I spoke to the person on the phone at length about the best time to make the reservation for, etc. She never told me that Aunt Catfish doesn't take reservations, but rather call-aheads. First of all, I have NEVER heard... More

Had a coupon from their Christmas Special, which is sought after here in Port Orange. If you are not a seafood snob, you will like Aunt Catfish. Atmosphere is quaint and relaxing. Sunday Brunch is wonderful, salad bar is great along with the fixings bar. Fried shrimp is really good here too. I am not seafood expert so other types... More
