I would say Tunks is OK..

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... read more

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

We were visiting family in Alexandria for an Eagle Scout induction ceremony. And a rare family gathering since we are so far strung out across the country. This was a long time local favorite spot I'd have never found on my own. We had a big table reserved and the waitstaff were wonderful. I got a huge platter of crawfish... More

Fairly good food. High price. Do not eat crawfish there, but have some unique dishes. Gumbo is Excellent .

We went to a rehearsal dinner here a few nights ago. We took up the entire back room. The ladies serving us did a great job. Food was WONDERFUL! Fried shrimp, crawfish pasta and gumbo were wonderful. Great place for a large party!!!

We were very pleased with our table and the service. I had a seafood platter which starts with a nude cup of gumbo. Nude roux and plenty of seafood in it. The seafood was nicely crude with generous portions. There is a salad bar included too. My wife had a snapper dish that tasted great, too

On Lake Kincaid, beautiful view, but we didn't have much of a view from our table. Server was excellent and food was better than average.

I've lived in the area all of my life and my first time going was February 2014. I can't believe I waited that long to eat there, I was missing out!!! Will definitely go again

This place was recommended by the FBO, said it was very good. I think they were very wrong. I had the "Snapper Sandy" and it was horrible. They seem proud that it is served ihn a brown paper bag (it says so on the menu) and I don't know why. The fish tasted like it had been frozen and thawed... More

Kind of in between on this one....in between average and very good.... ! I would go back as the only thing I could see wrong was the waiting of the tables...our waitress was a bit off, she just seemed inattentive and we had to continually ask for either refills or just water. Food was ok but I am sure there... More
