“We love the Hammock because of its laid back, easy-going, ole Florida charm and when we travel down south to Port Orange we like to keep this feeling going, so we head over to Aunt Catfish. Just GREAT southern food, prepared with love and served with a smile and cinnamon bun. I love the catfish, of course. This is 45 miles from Washington Oaks state Park, but traveling this far is normal when you are in this neck of the woods.”
