Alexandria Seafood

L

Look no further than Old Town for some of the region’s most delicious and creative seafood fare. Stop by the Cajun-inspired Warehouse Bar and Grill for crawfish and shrimp beignets or The Wharf for tender clams and oysters steeped in garlic herb butter. To unwind riverside, head to Vola’s Dockside Grill, recognized for its expansive waterfront patio, raw bar and menu offerings like littleneck steamers, seared shrimp tacos and blackened grouper. On upper King Street, head to D.C.-area legend Hank’s Oyster Bar or Augie’s Mussel House & Beer Garden. For more waterfront views, book a reservation at sunset at Chart House and enjoy the views while you dine on macadamia crusted Mahi Mahi.
