Not your run of the mill, stuff restaurant

This restaurant sits right by a small lake and it's decor is perfect for it's country setting. The staff is friendly, the menu is varied and the food is good or only fair, depending on what you order and when you order it. If you like to try different things, you'll have fun picking from things... read more

We were here 15 years ago and my wife still remembered how great the fish in a bag was. So, when we were in the area, we had to go back and see if it was still as good. We were not disappointed! The bar downstairs is a nice place for drinks and has a wonderful view of the lake.... More

With a limited selection of restaurants in Alexandria, Tunk's continues to be a sturdy go-to. Food is always good with a nice salad bar. Be sure you ask to have Maria as your server. By far one of the most attentive waitresses I have ever seen anywhere. Maria is well into her 80's but can run laps around any young... More

First time to eat here. Came up to check out Kincaid Lake, which is beautiful, and decided to stop off and eat. First impression, great view of the lake from Tunks. Second impression, really stinky garbage we had to walk through to get to the front door. 3rd impression, most unfriendly, unsmiling greeter/seater at the door. I mean this lady... More

My daughter and I took my Mom to celebrate her 80th birthday here. Food was great and so was our waitress, Maria. Had a very nice time.

We had our dinner in the Oyster Bar because the view of the lake was beautiful. Our waiter, Harold was very attentive and our food was just as we requested. The oyster on the half shell were fresh and delicious. Our dinner was very tasty. This is a very casual restaurant that is family friendly. We didn't have a problem... More

Good live music and dining on the water. Best if you are in a boat and dock. Good food, fresh and friendly service.

Tunk's has been around forever. The crawfish are great only if you get the spicy hot.Regular is bland. Salad bar is always good. Relaxed and you can almost always see someone you know if you are local. I can't get seafood like this here in Florida where I presently live. I sure miss Louisiana and the wonderful, friendly southern people... More

I love Tunks and go there often. Sit inside the restaurant or go downstairs and either eat outside on the water or in the Oyster Bar and listen to live music. Fish and turtles and a flock of Canadian Geese hang around the docks looking for handouts. Locals tie their boats up at the dock and order drinks and meals.... More
