Casual, spacious joint serving Cajun-style seafood dishes such as jambalaya & boiled crawfish.- Google
"Their chocolate bread pudding with ice cream is amazing."
"Atmosphere is exactly what you might find in a Cajun seafood joint."

The food is good, for real. The shrimps and crawfishes are big and fresh. The sweets potatos fries are thin and sweet potatoey. The frieds softs shells crabs are light and crispy. I like this food good.

I love everything about this place. The food and drinks are on point! The best seafood restaurant in the area! Best service! Everyone is so friendly. My husband and I live 45 minutes away from Chasin' Tails, but that doesn't stop us from coming back. WE LOVE IT.

We wanted to try a different seafood place than our usual spots and decided to try it out. Had 2 pounds of crawfish with the Oh Dang sauce, gator bites, and beignets. The crawfish was excellent and the gator bites came in big chunks. Beer was also reasonable, the large draft glasses were totally worth it. I'm only giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because I felt like there wasn't that much gator compared to fries, and the beignets were just okay, not anything fabulous. Service was very good too even if they were busy. Bottom line, If you want delicious seafood to eat with your hands, this is a good place.

Best crawfish bar in the DMV. Reservation strongly recommended. They have a wide variety of flavored but my favorite is the sha bang sauce which is a combination of every sauce! Their side dishes are also delicious. You won't be disappointed!

Clever, fun name for the place, but not anything exceptional. If you are a true Southerner or fancy/know real Deep South seafood cuisine you will not be fooled. Even the fried stuff could have used more seasoning, though the batter was good. To its credit, it is one of the few p[laces in the DMV that offers crawfish and gator on its menu. The boil-in-bag dishes must be the best thing as most tables had them. We visited on Labor Day and the waitress started off saying they were short staffed. But having to ask for bread plates to crunch on apps and silverware [which was of the cheapest quality --think elementary school cafeteria] is just inexcusable. And when she threw down some seafood forks for us to use because others were still in the wash-- I was done! A few other quick tips should you visit. We dined outside, which was perfect for the weather and near evening time of our arrival. But we didn't know a firehouse is located literally around the corner. They must get about 3-4 calls an hour. So if you want peace, dine inside, which spacious and modern decor and clean. I agree that paid street level parking could be hard to find, but there is an underground garage. Nothing much to brag about overall. Just simply fair to midlin'...

I'm all about perfectly portioned meals. The meals here are very pricey for the amount of food you receive. The raw oysters are great though and I would definitely recommend that you try them.
