Been coming to this restaurant since it opened and I've never had a bad meal. Everything is always fresh and filling. My favorite is the She Crab Soup, you must try it. I've even called ahead to order this delicious soup for take home some nights. One of my all time favorite restaurants back home.

I struggled between a four and a five for this review. The food was outstanding. I had the Gumbo and my husband the Jambalaya. Both were outstanding. The Jack Daniels shrimp was also outstanding, but I honestly felt it was way overpriced for four very small shrimp. The area is a bit outside of King Street, and the restaurant itself... More

A friend and I decided to try something new. I have my local favorites, but have never really found a SUPERB restaurant in Alexandria. Needless to say, this ain't it! Everything - the oysters, the crab soup, and the entrees were "OK" - but nothing noteworthy, especially given the prices.
