Great place. Our waiter Gray was fantastic and the owner of the restaurant went to every single table in the building to ask how their experience was going. Great seafood. Yes, the shellfish is given to you the way they were cooked, in plastic bags, but that's part of the gimmick. It didn't hinder our experience at all, and if not using fancy tablecloths or plates makes the meal less expensive then I'll take it. The only small improvement that might be made is to have a seasonal price menu either in addition to the menu or up on the wall like a specials/market price board. But even still, it was well worth the venture out. Would be our new local digs if we lived in the area.

I ate here expecting the worst. The D.C. metro region is not known for stellar Cajun offerings, but this was a nice surprise. I had the gumbo and a plate red beans and rice. The decor was a little hokey and chain restautant-ish but not offensively so. A number of flat screen sports channels on the walls. The staff was efficient and respectful. The gumbo? My only complaint was the portion size could be bigger. The beans and rice were good too.

Before I start, must say 'Dawg, parking was a BEAR.' Other then that, the food was good. Their specialty is Cajun-Creole. I'm talkin' crawfish, snow crab legs, shrimp and more. My appetite was different on the day I visited. Their jambalaya was fresh and AWESOME; I wanted another bowl, but that wouldn't have been right. Since it was Saturday and college football was on, I tried the 1/2 dozen lemon pepper wings. Now, that was a mistake because the wings lacked lemon and where was the pepper. The jambalaya was so good, I gave them a pass on the wings this time. I went out of my way to visit Chasin' Tails. Since they specialize in Cajun seafood, I'd go again. I'd search for available parking or ride the Metro next time.

Very disappointing. Dragged my feet trying this place because I'm a big crawfish fan and had heard that if you've had the real thing you shouldn't bother with Chasin' Tails, and unfortunately that's very true. Nothing about this is authentic cajun. We were informed when ordering that "the cajun crawfish arrive in a sauce" so that we "wouldn't be surprised". Uh, yeah, because how else do you prepare crawfish? They have an unusual method, which they'll explain if you end up submitting yourself to this bummer of a restaurant. Service was pretty good, but if I want more than a beer I'll go somewhere else.
