Casual, spacious joint serving Cajun-style seafood dishes such as jambalaya & boiled crawfish.- Google
"The crawfish was excellent and the gator bites came in big chunks."
"Great place for snow crab legs."

Wow!!! Talk about great seafood and service. This place is definitely my new spot. The lobster is excellent, King Crab legs are to die for and the shrimp is the BOMB! There's also a great selection of beers and mixed drinks. Good for single, couples and family dining. My review just isn't enough. You have to come here and actually experience Chasin' Tails for yourself!!!

I'm not a fan of messy eating, or doing a lot of work for my food, but I could get used to this. Plus, they have these gigantic beers available. Excellent place for happy hour, food, and friends.

Casual seafood spot with many customizable menu options. The service is great and the place has a lively atmosphere. There's usually a wait, so call ahead if you've got a large party. And finally the food is wonderful, the seafood is fresh and cooked to order. A must go if you like crawfish.

We were meeting our friends out for dinner and they wanted to go to Chasin' Tails. My wife and I do not like Cajun food, or spicy food, but did not want to disappoint our friends so we agreed to go there. We were very pleasantly surprised. The table ordered fried oysters and fries as a appetizer and they were delicious. You could tell the seafood was fresh, the breading had great flavor (ordered mild which was not spicy), and the french fries were one of the best in the Northern VA/DC area. For dinner my wife ordered a bayou bag with shrimp (not spicy) and she really enjoyed it. Again all the ingredients were well seasoned and very fresh. I ordered the fried scallops (the bayou bag did not look my type of dining) and the scallops were much better than I expected for the price. They were perfectly cooked, tender, and juicy. The next morning my stomach was a little off because I usually do not eat fried food and could not stop eating it there since it was so good. Overall, I think this is a great restaurant, good location, nice atmosphere, good service (thank you Mimi), and good food.

The food here is the BOMB! The other reviews are very true to its name! The crawfish here should be called BOMB fish its filled with explosions of flavor! One bite and your mouth will go BOOM! LOl okay calming down... On to the food we ordered: 1. 2lbs of crawfish with mixed sauce and mild for the crawfish. They soak the crawfish in the bag of mixed sauce with sausage slices, potatoes, and corn on the cob. The corn was amazing too since it sucked up all the juices into itself. 2. Crawfish Mac n Cheese - Holy Mac! (See what i did?)This = hands down best Mac I've ever had! The order is more like a entre size in case you were wondering. The picture on the menu shows it on a bowl which was not accurate, its on a bigger plate. I'd would just come here to get this dish period! 3. Jambalaya - this was good I just never really liked jambalaya though. It was good but not among the other dishes we had. 4. Calamari - This is served over a good portion of fries underneath! You should ask for extra dipping sauce as I'm sure you'll want it! Definitely a must have here as well! 5. Beignet - these are free if you check in with yelp! BOOM! Glad you read this huh?! Tell them to serve these post meal as they are sweets! We ordered all of these for 3 hungry people and it is very filling. We were stuffed! When I go back I'm going to own that Mac N Cheese... Anyways...the service was very attentive as well. We went on a Saturday night (6pm). We waited for 45minutes it was packed! You should definitely call ahead though! I usually do but was not on top of my game that day! They also have outdoor seating available for you folks as well (probably a good idea after sun sets and its not volcano hot). All in all - definitely coming back!

Over rated and expensive. Staffed by novices. Some good but mostly poor. Tried it once and not impressed. Friends have said the same.

Service was so awful we asked to have our food packed up and left. The brainless untrained server just packed up our appetizer (gator bites) and did not pack up the $90 worth of crawfish and crab legs. We were so distraught we didn't notice until we got home. The restaurant did rectify it by refunding us, sending a nice note and gift card. Although it was a nice gesture I can't even bring myself to using free money there.
