We went after a day of sightseeing. We were able to get a table right away. Wonderful sangria. The mussels were good as an appetizer. We had fried shrimp, avocado stuffed with crab meat, club sandwich and a large side of hush puppies. The hush puppies were wonderful. Our server, Chris was another story. He seemed to be very bored and it was an effort for him to do anything. He even reached across the table to fill water glasses and got his arm all over the straws in our sangria. He walked past the table and did not even remove dirty dishes. The bus boys were great. They never slowed down.

Tasty grilled selection right off the water in Old Town Alexandria. While the price is a little on the high side the freshness and quality of the food is very noticeable.

We stopped in for a meal after reading the reviews here. Out service was OK, menu had a good selection. We opted for the crab cake sandwich, fish-n-chips, and an order of hush puppies (based on reading the reviews here). All were pretty good, I wouldn't say exceptional or great. Prices were a little high for the food, service was just average. Not a bad visit, but we would probably try a different place if we were in the area again.

My husband and I were looking a good place to go for crab, and we selected the Fish Market based on the name. I looked up some up some reviews which sounded good, so we decided to take a chance. In addition to a large selection on their regular menu, they also have a good selection of sushi and sashimi. We selected from both menus. The crab cakes were very good. We arrived right at the end of a happy hour,but our waiter got us the discount for our bottle of wine. Our waiter was very attentive, and helpful. Prices were a bit high, but the quality was good.

We had visited The Fish Market in our various trips to DC and Alexandria, and the last lunch we had there was really disappointing. Service was nice and efficient, but the food was generic at best, and quite expensive for the quality and the experience. It was basic and while quantities were generous, the quality was very average (we had the clam chowder, Fish & Chips for what I recall).
