“Great Place for Date night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The food is good and the location is nice. Depending on where you sit, you can see the river or nice boats in dry dock. The food is good and the service is adequate.

“Waterfront Dining”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

The Electric Palm has an open spacious and modern dining room. A wall of windows lets you view the boat yard and Occoquan River while dining. This atmosphere is quiet and relaxing where you can easily converse without a lot of background noise. There is a open patio area to accomodate good weather patrons and those who smoke. Also easy dining room access for those with disabilities. The menu has a variety of American dishes from soups, salads and light fare to a full meal. Prices are average. Service is attentive but ask questions if you are uncertain of menu item preparations.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012 via mobile

Been @ the Palm a few times over the past few months. We try to sit out on the upper patio where the view overlooking the river & marina is calm & relaxing. Usually get appetizers & adult beverages. The crab balls, quesadilla & wings are among our favorites but the salad choice should not be overlooked. All servers are attentive but our favorite (if there has to be one) is Maggie!

“Great for drinks and atmosphere NOT for food and service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

I continue to go to this place just because it's convenient to my boyfriend's place and it holds fond memories (we had our first date here!). However, it's the same experience every time. On a Friday or Saturday night the music is great and the the atmosphere is fun, but the food and service is pretty lousy. The restaurant survives for that reason only and becuase of its location on the water. The impression I get is that the owners just don't know the first thing about restaurant management. They have a great location and venue, but they rely on that for repeat business and not the food and service. It's a shame, because people will continue to go here (including me) even thought they're not happy with what they're being served and how it's being served.
