“Tourist Trap, but Good”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

Like the title says, this place is clearly a tourist trap but we found the food to be good and service quite friendly. Not the 'finest' seafood meal I have ever enjoyed, but quite good for the price and certainly a place you can take large families, younger kids etc. If you are looking for a good quality, reasonably priced seafood meal while in Alexandria this is a very good option. Just don't expect white tablecloth/fine dining and a quiet environment.

“More than I expected! ”
Reviewed August 28, 2014 via mobile

I walked pass this place several times and so wanted to try it. So to celebrate a special friend birthday, we went here for dinner and it was amazing!

“Always Good.”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

This place never disappoints. The food is always fantastic. This is the place to go for raw clams, crab cakes, clam chowder, and hush puppies. If you like seafood, you can't find any place that is better. We have never had a bad meal here. The only problem is that acoustically, it is loud. This can't be helped, though. The place is popular.

“Good food but loud”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

This place along with most of the restaurants in the neighborhood were busy on a Saturday night. The lobster rolls are great and they even did ribs proud. The only complaint is there was a very big group in the room we were in and they were very loud to the point we couldn't wait to leave to give our ears a break. This restaurant is a very short walk to the river front.

“Service was Great”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

Service was great but the food was even better. Had a great selection of beer, local and otherwise, and the hush puppies were the best I have ever eaten. This is a favorite spot for locals so we just had to try it. We were not disappointed at all.
