Reviewed August 14, 2013

So you have to be a little adventurous to do the seafood market, and not afraid to try new things. First, walk around and be amazed at all the different types of fish and seafood available--you'll be wishing you lived closer to take some home with you and/or knew how to cook it. Then head to one of the stands that will cook something for you and get in line. Choose your seafood and sides and then you can stand up by a table to crack open crab, clams, oysters, or gobble up your shrimp or crawfish. Be prepared for a few bugs and birds wanting a taste. Everyone wants a bite of the deliciousness!

“Great shrimp!”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Great steamed shrimp, crab claws & oysters.
This is kinda hidden away from the common tourist sites, but just a short walk from the tidal basin near the Jefferson Memorial.
You can get it to go or stand at a bench and eat while looking out at the marina.
A must stop!!!!!

“Basic fresh seafood market, friendly folks”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

This waterfront seafood market is rustic and friendly, with some waterfront/waterview wooden standup counterspace for "dining", so don't expect a picnic table or more. Seafood can be purchased by the pound or the plate. The gumbo, while very tasty (especialy spiced up at the condiment table) had generous amounts of whole shrimp in it - though also unpeeled (shell, legs and all, ew). Sweet corn in the husk for $2 works, too and though I didn't order it, the blackened fish looked delicious. This may not be a destination, but worth a stop if you are nearby.
