The service was very good. The wait staff was professional and very friendly. I love that southern hospitality. The atmosphere is quiet and peaceful. The lake is beautiful. The food was delicious. The salad bar is small but good. I recommend the shrimp fettuccine, which had alot of good size shrimp. The waiter recommended the blueberry cream pie and it... More

The alligator was great! All the fried seafood was great! Hushpuppies were out of this world! Service was nothing to complain about, food came out in a reasonable amount of time. Pecan pie was standard but the slice was tiny. I was sad that the Hummingbird cake was nothing special.

We went there while in the area at a convention with several friends. The service was slow even though we had arrived just after the resturant had opened. Everyone commented on the food most saying it was just so-so and nothing really special. I had the stuffed red snapper and it was good but not great. I am not certain... More

I used to LOVE Tunks. But a recent visit resulted in total frustration. We hired a sitter to go out to eat alone and went to Tunks Oyster Bar. We were incredibly frustrated that 3 small children were allowed to run free throughout the bar, despite complaints from quite a few customers. Our waitress ignored our pleas to just bring... More

My sister and I were in Alexandria for a conference. We came here on a personal recommendation with a local friend. In advance, I read the Trip Advisor reviews and was confident that, in addition to the trusted friend who recommended the place, we would have a good experience. We were pleasantly surprised, that although the parking lot was packed,... More

This is the first time we have been here in a long time, but will need to come more often. The view is wonderful, the staff is friendly, and the Crab was "Great". The salad bar is small and it takes a while to get your order but my soft shell crab was perfect! So relax enjoy the view and... More

We had marinated prime rib, boiled shrimp, and Snapper Sandy. It was all wonderful! I wouldn't change anything at all. The service was great and the food was better.

Was brought here by my hosts while on a business trip. I have eaten food all over the United States. In addition to one restaurant on Cape Cod, this is the best food I have ever had........Hands down.
