Looking for something different and fun

My family and I were walking down King Street looking to try a new restaurant we hadn't tried yet. The Fishmarket caught our eye! Staff are amazing... Decor is amazing... and the food has pushed this restaurant to the top of our list for fish! You can't lose at this restaurant. We'll be back!

I've been walking around Old Town Alexandria looking for a gluten free clam chowder. I finally found one, and it was full of flavor. Exactly what I needed to warm up on this cold gray day.

Business dinner with a couple: So 4 of us: I had the Fish tacos. Right up there with the best I've ever had... and that's saying something. They had REALLY home made Sweet potato fries (not from a freezer bag). Their Aoli and ramoulaude sauces did not come with our meal but we asked for it. yumm. Asparagus was cooked... More

I had decided to have crab or crab cakes at every meal while on vacation for a week. First night in Alexandria I couldn't wait to eat a crab cake. We went to The Fish Market. I had the super duper crab cake with no filler. It came with potatoes and asparagus. I ate both cakes. Later that evening about... More

We remember years ago when the Fish Market was a destination for excellent seafood and an interesting place to eat. Now it is a factory offering stale food that you're expected to eat as quickly as possible and clear the table. I had the Fisherman's fried dinner, my companion the Fish and Chips. The hushpuppies and scallops seemed to be... More

The salads seafood did not have a lot of a variety of fishes and the portions were small. The scallops dish was better in portion size and taste & favlor. Many different types of drinks. up stairs seating dark only windows in the front. Salads $16 & up not worth the cost. would not go again. good wait staff

Very flexible menu, if you want to change up a meal they will work with you. Great service. We had the lobster pasta that was full of claws, and "the skippers " with shrimp and scallops - delish! Average price for the area, worth the trip.

On vacation we had two dinners here!! The first was so good we tried it again...and the second was just as good. The food was fresh, well prepared, and a good amount for the price. We had, including both meals, clam chowder, crab cakes, oysters on the half shell, fish tacos, seafood pasta, and the cod sandwich. This is a... More
