After a long walk around the Torpedo Factory Art Center, I was looking for place to sit and have a nice glass of wine and light late lunch. I saw the name of the place I recognize from the past so I decided to see how it looks now. The "Fish Market" now is not the same as the one... More

Just moved to Virginia in September 2014. Have frequented Alexandria over the years, but never been to the Fish Market. Reason being - I don't choose fish when I eat out. Well...there was a driving rain, we were cold and miserable - but we wanted "good eats." We checked near/far...finally went into the Hotel Monaco to get an objective 3rd... More

I can still remember the first time I went to the Fish Market like it was yesterday. I was amazed at the rate at which platters and platters of steamed spiced crabs were being dumped on tables covered in brown paper. Old Bay Seasoning containers were everywhere you look and more waiters kept bringing out bowls and bowls of melted... More

Met several people after a meeting for dinner. Nice historic old building. Their world famous spicy shrimp was very good. I tried got the first time some raw clams. The clams were very tasty. For dinner I had the grilled Admiral plate, which had fish, clams, asparagus, and scallops. The admiral was good too. Good service!

I don't eat any seafood - fish or shellfish - but my family does and we all love this restaurant. The non-seafood is good. I wish that there was a little more choice, but what is there is nicely prepared. The seafood platters look spectacular. The restaurant also has a 32oz 'schooner' of beer that is served in a huge...

The downstairs smelled a little strongly of cleaning but moved upstairs and it was very nice. Manager also said would address the cleaning crew to wipe down with fresh water after cleaning.

This is really overrated restaurant. Nothing original about the food. The menu reflects their desire to be something from Louisiana, but the food says something else. The service is very very good though. The sweet potato fries are very good. the local beers are good too. And the ambience is very good. That's all. Do not order the crab cake-... More

Wonderful stop on lower King Street for some oysters and a beer. It has been there for 40 years and the food is great.
