Wanted a nice lunch in Old Town Alexandria and came here based on distance and TA reviews. Cozy spot with a few tables up front and more in the back. The tables for 2 in the back are pretty close together, so be friendly to your neighbors. Started off with a sampling of oysters. They had 6 different varieties to choose from. We had the waiter pick 3 of the best and were pleased with his selection we ordered our food while still eating the oysters, however it took a very long time to get our meals. Many tables around us received food before us (and they ordered after us). We weren't in a hurry so didn't mind too much. The waiter was very apologetic and brought us 6 more oysters on the house. Very nice. Husband had crab cakes which were excellent, very little "filler" and lots of crab meat. Onion rings were fabulous! I had the lobster roll. Was a nice blend of freshness with just a dusting of mayo. Old bay fries were ok, wished I had onion rings! When bill came, all the oysters were comped! Nice to know that when service snafus happen, they take care of their customers. Would def return.
