Hull's Seafood Restaurant and Market

The owner of this Ormond Beach establishment is a former fishing charter captain. No one knows the local fish like Captain Hull! 

Macker Seafood

Hidden in a strip mall, this website-less restaurant flies under the radar. It's a no-frills joint. In fact, there's no place to eat inside the restaurant, but there's something great about taking it go and eating it right out of the box, especially when it's so dang delicious.

Aunt Catfish's On the River

Aunt Catfish's will make you feel like you're at an old fish camp. Sitting on the Halifax River, the chef's say the food is "down south river cooking."
