Still good after two decades!

We stopped here on a short trip to the area. Food was as I remembered...very tasty and priced for the area. Service was good and the food was hot and plentiful. It is not cheap-eats!

The food is pretty good but the place itself is just awesome! The wait staff are very courteous! You have to make sure that you know what you are ordering! I ordered one thing expecting something with meat in it and when it was delivered....well, no meat! So they grilled me some shrimp to put in it!

An old army hospital made into cool fish restaurant. Crabcake sandwich was perfect w/ fries and fresh slaw. Great lemon drop martinis and hugh schooners of beer. Live music upstairs...would go again.

A friend and I visited Alexanderia for a day of shopping and seeing the sights. We looked for a place that served lobster rolls and The Fish Market was the only restaurant that had them on the menu. The lobster roll was delicious, fresh. We added the house salad and sweet potato fries, both were very good. Our server was... More

Between 4P-7P is Happy Hour with Oysters, Spiced Shrimp, Apps and drinks all discounted. First night we killed off 2 dozen oysters, pound of shrimp and some rings.

I love coming here. The raw oyster are always fresh , the beer always cold and the atmosphere is casual, charming and not pretentious. The happy hours has great seafood options and some days live music. the service is always pretty good.

I have eaten here in the past and was disappointed this time. Although raw oysters were great the fried fishermans platter was dry and over cooked shrimp and scallops. The fish whatever it might have been was just a giant tasteless fish stick. The waiter who is working hard asked how it was and I told home it was over... More

Met up with a friend for an early lunch during the week, so it was pretty empty. We had a salmon BLT $14, sea Cobb salad $16, & an O Town burger $12. Quite tasty food, and good service.
