Been to Aunt Catfish’s


Okay, so Friday at 6pm Rob tells me he wants to drive an hour up to Daytona to eat catfish at Aunt Catfish’s! I was all over that. It was spontaneous and I didn’t feel like cooking anyway. Plus it was a good reason to get out of the house.

If you haven’t been to Aunt Catfish’s then you need to go. It’s got the best seafood around (more than just catfish). Around Daytona anyway. And it’s not really in Daytona it’s just south in Port Orange. We haven’t been able to find a great seafood restaurant in Orlando in the 9 years we’ve lived here.

We hadn’t been to Aunt Catfish’s in….about 7 years. And yummmm was it good! Of course Rob had the catfish, which I don’t really care for but he grew up eating it. I wasn’t sure what to have until I saw on the menu they had Southern Style Shrimp and Grits. My mouth watered! If you’re going to have Shrimp and Grits then get it in South Carolina which the dish originated. However, I will say that Aunt Catfish’s version was VERY good and I enjoyed every bit of it. Our meal was definitely worth the hour drive up and back.

  1. I’ve been! Jason’s family goes to New Smyrna every year for vacation, and Aunt Catfish is always on the docket. It always amazes me how crowded it is there! I’m not a big seafood fan, but I like their salad bar and hush puppies!

  2. Kevin, YES, try it out you’ll love it! They also have great cheese grits!
    Jill, you’re right it is always crowded.
