For fresh seafood in Alexandria, this is the place to go. The menu offers many choices and the portions are astonishingly large. Service is friendly and efficient. Alexandria is not a cheap eats place but in comparison to the competition the Fish Market is well in the mid-price range.

As a Floridian we know our seafood and this place could be right on any of our creeks and rivers. Great food, fun environment and they have their own ice cream shop.

We had a spontaneous walk-in for lunch; were seated and waited on promptly. The seating area was clean and well lighted. Seating is also available in a separate bar area. Be advised, read the drink menu. We ordered a Bloody Mary without doing so. It's monstrous, tasty and well made, but huge. The Fish Market Clam Chowder is serviceable but... More

We were in the area to visit Mount Vernon and wanted to check out the Old Town area and have lunch. It was so cold outside so that limited our ability to wander around but we found this place and saw it was ranked top 10 for the area and decided to check it out. The service was good but... More

We had lunch here and didn't find the experience to be particularly special but it got the job done. My husband and I both had the shrimp, and thankfully I wasn't too hungry because my husband ate the last two shrimp from my plate. Felt like the baskets were disproportionate and filled up with fries and the shrimp were a... More

We had a great server that could answer all of our questions! The lobster bisque and the seafood platter with shrimp, scallop and salmon were really good. My co worker had cod tacos, she was not a big fan. The rest of the experience was great.

I loved my crawfish étouffée but my wife's deep fried fisherman's platter was unremarkable. (And the off-street parking was $14.)

The spiced shrimp are the best. The crab soup is the best rendition in DC. I had the shellfish with pasta and it had a wealth of flavor and shrimp, mussels et al for a surprisingly reasonable price.

Good food, good environment. Not for food connoisseurs. This is just American food to be taken with a local brew. Family friendly with good service. The fish market is been in the area for a long time and is kind of a land mark. I suggest to take a stroll around the area and eat lunch at the Fish Market.... More
