“Awesome Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Took my wife and son to lunch at The Wharf two days ago. Sat outside on the sidewalk under an umbrella. Perfect day and awesome food. Mahi Mahi special was superb as was the two other entrees at our table. Pleasant waiter and great experience. Many restaurants to chose from in this town but this one is worth the visit.

“GREAT Seafood in Old Town Alexandria VA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Four of us in town for business wanted a nice sit down seafood restaurant - THE WHARF was just the ticket! Oysters, Crab, Lobster and Filet - we enjoyed MANY items from the menu and enjoyed them all! Nice wine by the glass options (the Carmenere was great!) and we had a coupon from the hotel for a free dessert (Berry Creme Brulee) was a nice added comp! Marie provided great service - overall a VERY GOOD dining experience!

“Worth that extra mile to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

We visited based on other reviews and were not disappointed. Excellent service in busy place, food was really good and the wine list very reasonably priced and great quality. Crab superb of course but varied enough menu for all of us to be happy. Never likely to return as we're just visiting DC and that's done now, but would love that restaurant here in London!

“Believe the Reviews!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We stumbled upon The Wharf walking through Old Town last year and sat outside to sample the claim of best crab cakes. The crab cakes were terrific! We returned to Alexandria and The Wharf this summer for a birthday meal; crab cakes, fish, calamari, all wonderful. The wine list is reasonably priced with interesting choices. Pedro the manager was very helpful discussing booking The Wharf for a family event.
