We live in the area and have been going to this restaurant for some time but have had bad experiences the last two times we went. We had two gift certificates we had earned during a promotion in December. We went for lunch today and wanted to pay with the gift certificate. We had a total of 48.56 left in... More

The food was so good that we actually ate there 3 times while in Daytona. Service was great and overall had no complaints other than over eating. I believe their salmon, hush puppies and cinnamon roll was about the best I've ever had.

Aunt Catfish has one of the most extensive menus we have ever seen. Their food buffet bars are well stocked with a wide array of various foods. The food and the service are both excellent. We try to eat here each time we visit the Daytona area as Aunt Catfish has become one of our favorite places to eat.

I've been going here since I was a kid and it remains exactly the same, so going there is always nostalgic for me. There is always a wait so be prepared. Although it is primarily a Seafood Restaurant there are tons of things for us Non-Seafood Eaters to enjoy. Lately I have been just getting the Salad Bar/ Hot Bar... More

Arrived early for Sunday brunch buffet and got a table with a view. Food choices were incredible and very tasty! Catfish bites were so good! We had one member in wheelchair and due to tightness, the others brought her food from buffet. The waitress was very attentive and asked to help with omelet or pancake line orders.

my first impression is that it is a bit pricey if you dont feel like giving enough justice to their salad buffet. Every the kids menu had a salad buffet included which i thought was ridiculous . Which kid eats salad and veggies? Their fish was very good. We had the party platter with crab cake, blackened tilapia and old... More

Three of us had dinner and two got the runs that evening! My husband and I dined with his Mom. She and I got the runs that evening, but the only meal we'd had in common was at Aunt Catfish's. Can't be sure, but the odds of a coincidence seem low, especially as she and I had the broccoli salad... More

This is a really nice restaurant that is fun and great for a family gathering. Everyone was very friendly, the food was very good, they have a nice salad bar with extra "fixings", and great views. We had seafood and homemade soup that was excellent.

Make sure you make reservations. This place is very busy and I am sure you will wait a long time for a table. Although the place does start to clear out around 7:30pm. We had a party of five on a Friday night. I requested a window seat so we could see the water. They accomadateed this. The salad bar... More
