I stopped in for lunch the other day and was mildly disappointed when I was informed there were no scallops. Things immediately got better when I found out they had Soft Shell Crabs. The crabs are lightly floured and lightly fried, served with fries and slaw. The Sea Food Bar is great and I wish my local Whole Foods had... More

We visit Wholefoods at least twice week. There are several speciality bar restaurants and a sports café. Sea Food bar is our favorite. Fresh sea food at very reasonable prices and Mussel nights on Monday and Oyster nights on Wednesday's.

Love this Whole Foods! It's a 8 minute walk from Hyatt Fairfax at Fairlakes. I saw salad bar,sushi, deli sandwiches, ice cream bar, desserts to die for, and a full sports bar restaurant serving beer. No complaints.

Right next to the seafood section in the supermarket is an open dining/bar to order fresh fish with your choice of tasty sauces. The cooks are excellent and will even cook a whole fish for you to take home if you don't want to cook it at home. You can have a beer or wine while you wait for your... More

I started going there when the first opened I think in mid 2000's. I went there a lot in 2006 through 2011. It is the best Whole Food I have been to east of the Mississippi. I have even been there when Emeril Lagasse was there doing his show. I have been on his show several times. Great selection of... More

The seafood is incredible especially the salmon which I always get Baja style! The sports bar great food and decent prices. Crab cake sandwich when they have it with the sweet chili sauce is sooooo good! Also the chicken tandoori tacos are really yummy! Salad bar has great selection a little pricey but fresh and great healthy food!:-)
