I have to say I have only eaten here once, but I found the experience lacking in many ways. First of all my friend and I were brought into a back room and placed against the wall instead of near the window. I noticed that moments later another couple were seated at the window. Sad we could not see... read more

I was directed to this restaurant by a friend and appreciated the referral. This is a good local restaurant and it is apparently quite popular with the locals. I came in for the "mudbugs" and a bowl of gumbo. The waitress was quite friendly and I was delighted to find that she was quite knowledgeable about the beers they had... More

I had heard this was a great restaurant for a date night near Alexandria, but I walked away rather disappointed. I got the Snapper Pontchartrain and was expecting an outstanding plate of fish topped with cajun crab, but instead I got a somewhat soggy fish fillet with a decent creamy sauce. I can't say the dish was bad, but it... More

My wife and I visited some dear friends from Alexandria, LA. They wanted to do dinner and I said I wanted a local joint so the took us to Tunk's. It's located on a lake, it has a dining room, an oyster bar with live music and dance floor, and then a deck on the water. We sat on the... More

We tried Tunks by recommendation of our real estate agent, he had warned us it was pricey but well worth it. He was SO right! The food was some of the best I have ever had and though entree prices started at $$ it came with a nice small but very fresh salad bar & roll . I had been... More

Tunk's is our very favorite place to eat! Since we live just a few miles away, it is easy to go there. But ease of getting there is not why we go. There food is always excellent and so delicious.

I'm sure this is a favorite place for locals because of how long the restaurant has been open. I have to say I was so excited to visit and eat at Tunks to only be disappointed. We started our dinner with a salad from the salad buffet. It has the normal fixings for salad. Our waitress was very nice but... More

The price of food does not match. Taste like every other restaurant, I think if we would have stayed for the Crawfish, beer, and the live band it might be better. That is in the bottom part "Oyster Bar", that we might try, but again not enough bang for your money.

Had an out-of-state business group that wanted to try a different restaurant around Alexandria. We selected Tunks due to location on the lake. The day was beautiful so we chose to eat in the bar to get the best lake view and enjoy the open air. The experience was just what the group wanted but the crawfish were a disappointment.... More
