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

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

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

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
