The band was great! We had the jalapeno dip and sweet potato fries, both were really good. Had beer and a yummy chocolate martini too. Service was good, but servers were wearing masks on their chins. People were crammed on the dance floor without masks...or social distancing.More

Decent place for a family lunch with a nice view. We had sandwich fare for a midday meal. Nothing was spectacular but certainly was fine for lunch. A little on the pricey side though...

On our way back to D.C. from the Potomac Mills outlet we decided to stop by the Electric Palm. despite it wast almost closing time the host welcomed us with a smile and a very nice chatting. We came from overseas and in few minutes...we started to talk in a very friendly atmosphere with the Host and another local guest of our different experiences and national habits and lifestyle. The food was very pleasant, with a good section of beers from smaller Breweries. Definitely one place to go!More

Went here to hang out with friends afyer a fundraising event. Checked out a menu and there were many delicious sounding items but we were jist here for a few quick drinks. The band Radio Redline was onstage and they put on a great performance....The dance floor could stand to be a little bigger but I understand more tables are more profitable. Looking forward to return in the daytime to have a nice meal and enjoy the view of the water and the Prince William Marina.More

Ate early evening and the service was excellent. We sat on the large outdoor upstairs deck and enjoyed the boats. I enjoyed a really good Lobster Roll (lobster served cold) on a good warm bun. I found the sweet potato fries to be cooked perfectly....The tap beer was good and cold. We will go again!More

No matter how hard this place tries to be very good, it tends to let me down in some way. I finally had one excellent dining experience in the past, but this time around the place simply fell short of meeting my expectations for a...four or five rating. I may go back again as it is very convenient to home and they do have some good bands. However, as a dining place, I will look elsewhere. This time around, I had the crab legs, steamed calms, and shrimp. Everything was mediocre at best. The service was slow even though the restaurant was not packed, which is something I cannot understand. To top it all off, when the charge cleared my bank, the total was $11.96 more than what my receipt showed. I immediately contacted the manager, who took care of it, but really offered no explanation or any kind of incentive to come back to the Electric Palm. Maybe, it is better I just stay away...More

Been going there for years, good crabcakes. Stopped by tonight and ordered a couple of pitchers. Much to our surprise when the bill came the pitchers were listed at $24 per. Pitchers were $14 last few times we stopped by. Brought it to our servers...attention who went back to check. She said bartenders agreed that pitchers should be $14. Apparently manager disagreed and said price was correct. Seriously...a $24 pitcher? We are not going back.More

A great place to stop for lunch or dinner, especially when I95 is congested. We had the crab cakes and NY steak wraps. The crab cakes were large and the best I have ever had and the steak wraps were delicious. Overall a very nice...waterfront resturant to escape I95.More

I'd seen this place from I95 often, but the only other time I tried, they were closed. We were looking for someplace to eat a little different anyway, and when traffic stopped....Electric Palm sounded great. Wow, glad we did. I didn't expect much, since it...appeared to be just a bar---don't let appearance fool you, this place was great! I got a seafood pasta dish that was nicely presented like a 4 star restaurant. My colleague ordered a crabcake sandwich that was stellar also. She said she's never seen one that thick, and it was cooked perfect and fresh. We both had enough to take some leftovers too, which was nice. My pasta had a nice layer of shredded crab on top as well as shrimp. Wish I'd thought to take a pic, but I was busy digging in.More

We came out for the Havana Nights dance event, and had dinner beforehand. The dance instructors are great. Food has improved a lot since last summer, and it looks likes a new menu. Service was ok. Seafood pasta was good and satisfying. New nachos with...chili and jalapenos were great! Bacon cheeseburger met expectations.More

I was told by people who live there that they do allow dogs on the patio. Don't know from personal experience.
