I went there with my fiancé and her mother and aunt last weekend. I had the clam chowder as an appetizer and it was the BEST clam chowder I've ever had. My fiancé had the Captain's platter and I had the Admiral's platter. Both were real good! Her aunt had the fried fish Pontchartrain, but had it grilled at the... More

We went here for a Party in the upstairs area. Love the area of Oldtown this is in. The building has that character of the area. The food was awesome! There was nothing that I disliked. Everything was great with good flavor. The staff were polite and prompt.

This restaurant has been a landmark in Alexandria over the years it continues to provide quality seafood and reasonable prices. For being in the heart of a fun walk-able historic community you don't feel like it's overpriced for what it offers. They have good food and friendly service. It is a kid friendly place but also a fun place to... More

The Fish Market is a quaint restaurant with a caring staff. We sometimes go for their 'should be award winning' - seafood stew; a rich pot of goodness that let's the seafood shine! Their fried seafood is okay (the breading is subpar) but have tried it broiled which was prepared much better. Steak doesn't seem to be a strong suit... More

For someone who isn't a big fan of seafood like myself, this is one of the better restaurants who have very nice variety as well as fresh ingredients and elements cooked from scratch in the kitchen. I went for dinner on New Year's Eve, and came back for New Year's Day. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I recommend... More

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
