Vola’s Dockside Grill and Hi-Tide Lounge

01 | 05

Located on the waterfront in Old Town, Alexandria, Vola’s Dockside Grill is a relaxed, fun, seafood restaurant. Named after Vola Lawson, a much-loved and iconic citizen of Old Town, Vola’s Dockside Grill embraces the simpler times and has been designed as a spot that feels as if it is as integral to Old Town as the cobblestone streets.

Vola’s is a friendly, familiar place with a raw bar and the largest outdoor riverside patio in Old Town, where the food, atmosphere, service, and experience are always fantastic. Accommodating up to 100 guests for a cocktail reception, 86 for a plated meal inside, plus an additional 100 seats on the outdoor patio, Vola’s is a premiere waterfront event venue in Alexandria!

Tucked in to a prominent corner at the base of King Street, the Hi-Tide Lounge is a retro-cool hideaway bar that beckons with classic cocktails and fun frozen drinks. The high tide water marker on the outside of the building carries through to the interior, exemplifying that just as “rising tides lift all boats, a Hi-Tide cocktail will lift one’s spirits.” With 40 seats, standing room for 45, and a notable vintage vibe, Hi-Tide is the perfect spot for your next event!

Vola’s “All Day” menu is based on chef-grade simple, classic seafood and waterfront-inspired foods made with peak season ingredients.
