I really wasn't big on fish, but this restaurant surprised me. Had the seafood pasta and wow! I didn't eat the small amount of "fish" in the dish, but the scallops and shrimp were plentiful, and that's what I preferred. Spouse had scallops which were,...More

Every dish is scrumptious! I personally love the clam chowder and hush puppies!! Big groups are easily seated and the wait is worth it!

Always stop here when in Old Town. Blue Point Oysters and the Hot Spiced Shrimp are always fantastic. Get the Broiled Seafood Platter and a Schooner of the Fish Market Pilsner! Then take a walk down to the river. The perfect evening.

Very good seafood pasta I couldn't stand leaving any sauce on the plate. My daughter had Jambalaya and her boyfriend had a lobster roll and everyone was pleased. Pricing was reasonable. Service was ok but they could have used a little more help.

There are a lot of very good restaurants in Alexandria, but many of them are geared toward the people who live in the million dollar townhouses and expense account. Fish Market is very much a casual dining spot, friendly service and budget friendly. We had...More

The peel-n-eat was AMAZING! Get shrimp and Saratoga type chips and you'll be happy. Kids burger was fine. Steamed Oysters are a skip. Sangria is a skip. Beer and shrimp, I'm tellin' ya!

This place is huge, but divided into many reasonable sized rooms, so was not terribly noisy. The tilefish and accompanying vegetable was very good. They even had a pasta plate for one of us who is a vegetarian who does not like fish. Good selection...More

I so wanted to give this more stars, as my oysters on my sandwich were hue and perfectly cooked. The only reason I am giving 3 is the service. My waiter was nice, but he forgot napkins and silverware, and he did not come back...More

The food was fine, but nothing special. The oysters were unremarkable. Entrees were fine. We were brought the wrong soup at first and the soup was not as described once we finally received it. Service was very slow. We never got drink refills that we...More

I don't know if that is available. Judging by the restaurant style and management I strongly suspect that gift certificates are available.

Must be a different place. This restaurant has been one of my mom's favorites since the early 80's when she used to take me there as a child. As far as I know they've always been in Old Town.

Yes, they serve lobster along with crabs also. The mussels and clams are the best.
