Casual and Good

The Fish Market is a casual restaurant in the heart of Old Town. The three of us were seated in the upstairs dining area near the TVs. This particular room was kind of loud compared to the other dining areas, so keep this in mind if you are interested in a quieter meal. We all had seafood. I... read more

Ten of us out for dinner, seated on the second level of the Fish Market. Almost everyone had the 'bowls' of beer ~ wow!. Crabettes for appetizers all around. Ordered scallops dinner with asparagus and potatoes - very good but all highly seasoned. Will be back.

We started by ordering an app and drinks. These items came right out. Or server started attentively checking on us and then brought dinner where he was never seen again. We stacked our empty plates of average fare in the center of the table and watched servers and buss boys rush to and fro doing nothing for any nearby tables.... More

We were there when it was burger night and decided to do one of their burgers! It was fantastic-made from fresh hamburger or at least didn't look like a pre-made, pre-pressed. Service was also great:-)

Although I read the seafood was great the prices threw me a little so I decided just to check it out and get a beer and watch some sports. I sat at the bar and the bartender immediately made me feel welcome, very tall muscular man that could probably be in the WWE or NFL, can't recall his name but... More

I've been coming here since it opened in the late 1970s. Always had a good meal. Met 2 friends who were biking the GW Parkway, left their bikes locked to a tree outside and came up fresh off the trail. No problem! Had Clam Chowder excellent. Seafood Club also excellent. Great atmosphere in upper room with funny paintings.

The raw bar was the only redeeming quality...slow service, tasteless food and staff sans personalities...not sure what all the fuss is about ...certainly wouldn't return or recommend....Alexandria has got to have better!

Best place to stop in and have a "schooner of beer" and a bowl of the best clam chowder in NOVA!! spiced shrimp or oyster are great also. I love to stop in on a cold or rainy day for hot chowder but dinner menu is great. Save room for POPS ice cream right next door.

It was a nice day so we just stopped by to have a beer and a crab cake (café seating on street). We tried to find out if the blue crab was local but couldn't really find anyone to give us an answer. The crab cake was good anyway!
