One of my favorite places in Old Town Alexandria. It's pricy, so don't let the casual looks fool you, but it's very much worth it! We go on special occasions and order from the oysters' bar menu. You must try the "crabettes" and the steamed shrimp, to die for! Great for gatherings of friends and family, and the eventual couple's... More

We love to go to the bar and enjoy the steamed shrimp and a couple of refreshing beverages. The bartenders are always friendly and professional. The oysters are delicious as well. Sometimes there is live music which adds to the ambiance.

Perfect place to stop for oysters or steamed shrimp. Go at happy hour and avoid the crowd and take advantage of lower price! Authentic Old Town Alexandia experience.

The Fish Market has been around forever. The food is average. The bars are very active. On the seafood menu, get the "seafood stew" on a cold weekend afternoon. Oysters and clams on the half shell are also great. The other menu items are of good quality, it somewhat average. But overall a great place to go and meet friends... More

Love coming and sitting a oyster bar for oysters and a cold beer watching folks walk by on the sidewalk. Bar area feels like being home with old friends.

I definitely recommend stopping in and checking out the Fish Market if you are visiting Old Town. It is in the heart of Old Town, near the water, near pubs, and in the center of the action. Walking in you see the fresh fish and the saloon doors. Two levels with live entertainment often going on inside.

There are better places to go. This one is just average. I've been here a couple times - not always my choice - the last time for lunch

The Fish Market remains one of my favorite places to eat when I visit Alexandria. The food is always fresh. This trip I had "Fried Fish Ponchartrain". A nice piece of fried cod, not too oily with jut the right amount of breading. It was smothered with a mixture of lump crab meat and shrimp in a butter cheese sauce.... More
