The east coast of Florida is blessed with hard packed sand beaches, the Atlantic Ocean and plenty of sunshine.   Sunning, surfing, playing volleyball and people watching are all possibilities.  After a day at the beach working up an appetite, it’s time to find a good place to eat.

Right on the banks of the Halifax River in Port Orange, Florida, is Aunt Catfish’s On the River.  This establishment has gained a reputation over the years as one of the best casual restaurants in the area.

Featuring moderately priced seafood platters, onion rings, barbecued ribs, fresh salads, steaks - Aunt Catfish’s is always a treat to visit!  Weekday lunch baskets ($6.99-$7.99 plus tax and tip), Monday through Friday are a treat for those not watching their cholesterol intake.  Fried shark, shrimp, catfish and chicken come with French fries, coleslaw and a cinnamon roll, hot from the oven.  When you top off the meal with a slice of Aunt Catfish’s  signature dessert “boat sinker pie” (fudge pie with coffee ice cream, hard coat chocolate and piled high with whipped cream) it’s a wonderfully sinful indulgence.

For the more calorie conscious patrons, there’s grilled Tilapia with mango salsa, shaved turkey wraps, cranberry bistro salad, fish chowder and so many other choices that it can be difficult to make up your mind.

Ask the wait staff, all referred to as “Cousin”, about the fresh catch of the day.  They won’t steer you wrong.

The salad bar is pretty extensive with iceberg lettuce, mixed greens, broccoli salad, cucumbers, garbanzos, carrots, shredded cheese, potato salad, fruit compote, croutons, sunflower seeds and more.

Aunt Catfish’s offers a kid’s menu that should please the little ones.  There’s the more exotic fried alligator and shark bites plus the usual hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken fingers.   

 The most popular meal at Aunt Catfish’s is the “Blue-Jean Sunday Brunch”.  Served Sundays from 9 am until 2 pm, there’s generally a line of people waiting to get in.  Tourists and locals alike can chow down on fresh fruit, carved ham and turkey, fried catfish, cheese grits, biscuits, baked beans, macaroni and cheese, made to order French toast, pancakes, omelets and eggs cooked in a variety of ways are just a few of the items available.  Early bird specials for the brunch run from 9 am until 10 am.

Foodies enjoy Aunt Catfish’s food, their waterfront view and the al fresco dining area where they can sit out, enjoy the view of the river and just relax.
