What a fun spot to stop and enjoy being on the water and having a delicious lunch. I felt like I was at an island resort. Our service was amazing and the menu was excellent. This is the place to go for a great atmosphere and great meal!
Really enjoyed the dockside area. Will visit again
Food and service were great. We would have preferred eating outside but reservations were applicable only to inside seating. You may want to review this policy.
Great atmosphere, on the water. Good selection of good and drink. Great service.
The service was excellent. Will definitely be back and recommend to friends.
Thank you for the five-star review!
good food and server and all that good jazz it was good 10/10 would recommend i eat the fried chicken sandwich every time and it’s on point
Thank you for the great review!
Crab cakes were good. My date got the fish and chips. The fish smelled like ammonia. Which is apparently an indication that the fish had gone bad. Yikes! They comped us for his entree, then we paid online. Left a cash tip on the table. Server chased us down to king street, waving our check and tip saying we hadn’t paid. It was super embarrassing. I told him we had paid online (like the check encouraged us to), he hadn’t seen it, I guess? I love Vola’s, but this was definitely not a great experience. Memorable, but not in a good way. It was my date’s first experience and I doubt he’ll ever return.
Vola's Dockside Grill is my first choice when visiting Alexandria VA Old Town for great drinks, eats, atmosphere, not to mention a fantastic Happy Hour from 3pm to 7pm. This venue can not be BEAT!
Thank you for the five-star review! We hope to see you again very soon and happy birthday to your wife!
I made a reservation based on the reviews however, my visit was not 5 stars. The chowder was cold and my bacon salad did not come with bacon. The lettuce also tasted as if it was sitting in the kitchen for a while. Not fresh And crispy but soggy lettuce. The fish n chips were too big that the batter fell right off the fish. The cole slaw was tasteless. The fries it came with were the best part of the dinner my husband and I had. The beer was also good. We definitely will not be back to this restaurant.
Good service. Food was good and pretty large portion.
Thank you for the review and feedback!
First time there and the everything was great drinks definitely were good
Thanks for the great review! Hope to see you again soon.
Food was great and came out pretty fast. Bartender took care of us considering he was pretty busy and had to come pretty far from the bar to serve us. And view from inside was great. Would definitely come back.
Thank you for the review! We hope to see you again soon.
I really like Vola's! Great area to have lunch outside and watch the planes come by, boats dock, or ducks swimming around. Very casual laid back atmosphere. The staff are fantastic and really do show they care. I recently had Skye as our server and she was fantastic, so nice and helpful!
Thank you for the review and feedback! We hope to see you again soon.
Good place, tacos were good but the beans that came with it were Cajun style which was weird. It’s hard to find traditional mexican food out here so I was hoping that the entire dish was good.
Thank you for your feedback. We have shared your feedback with the culinary team and hope you'll give us another opportunity. We do have several different taco options available should you want to try something else. Thanks again!
The drinks are good. The food here is inconsistent/mediocre at best. The DMV area does a good job with crab cakes so if you order that and some drinks—you’ll be satisfied.
The service has typically been decent the years I have eaten here. Definitely not my first Or second choice for Old Town eats. They have a ton of seating and is a “go to” during COVID-19
Hi, Crystal. Thank you for your feedback. We do take great pride in the quality of our dishes and would like to hear more about the inconsistencies you've experienced so we can address with the culinary team. Thank you again and we do hope you'll give us another opportunity to impress you.
Amazing food, vibe, and service! Will most definitely be back!
Thank you, India! We look forward to seeing you soon.
I came into the restaurant I had called ahead to ask for a table and while the team did try hard to have a table ready they were uncertain that they could seat me early. I decided to arrive upon my reservation time and we were seated. We received a white waiter that was old and it showed in his service skill. Very slow, constantly having to remind him we were there. Appetizers came one by one although each person ordered their own. He used a phone to take our orders but wasn’t consistent with us. We reminded him to bring us water, ask about our food, checks, boxes for food. It just took a lot of us to get things. His tables were spread out and majority of his tables seem to be in the back and since we were upfront I assumed that’s why we were forgotten. Food was bland and possibly cold, although the waiter didn’t bring us the food the hispanic guys that did were awesome. Really cared about our sauce and took care of us. But because the horrible waiter was our point of contact we did not enjoy our time there!

We had a lovely brunch outside, overlooking the Potomac. The weather, food and service was perfect. Vola’s is one of our go to places. It is always fabulous!!
Hi Julie, thank you for taking the time to leave us the incredible review! We are thrilled to know we are on of your favorite places to dine and look forward to hosting you again soon.
Lovely outside dining area. Tight seating but we got lucky and had a table by the water.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us the kind review! We hope to see you again soon on the patio.
We like coming every time we are in the area. Food is excellent and service is great. We like to sit by the window so we can enjoy the views of the Potomac and park.
Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave us the lovely review! We are delighted to know you had a wonderful time and look forward to seeing you again soon.
Food is average but staff is friendly and the location is ideal, right on the waterfront. And they have outdoor seating, which is nice to have on the water.
Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We hope to see you soon to try some of our new dishes.
Our waiter, Franklin, was kind and attentive and checked on us just enough. The seafood stew was delicious!!
Thank you for the review! Franklin is great and we will share your kind words with them. Hope to see you again soon.
Based on what we ordered, fried chicken and fish and chips were very good. Lobster roll and corn and shrimp fritters were disappointing.
Server was super nice at first, but then went MIA. We only ended up with one round of drinks because he frankly never came around to ask us if we wanted more.
Hello - thank you for the review. We pride ourselves on both the quality of our dishes and our service and are sorry to hear that we fell short during your recent dine. We have shared this information with out management team and hope you'll give us another opportunity to impress you.
My only complaint, and the reason for low rating on Value, is the small size of the brunch cocktails for the high price. Next time I'll pass on the fancy drinks. No specified GF options but Walter was able to inform me on what could be made GF.
Hi, Kathryn. Thank you for the review and feedback. We will share this with the management team and hope you'll join us again soon!
Honestly, we were surprised. We've been to Vola's before, though not recently. Thought the place was a fine neighborhood hangout joint, but nothing spectacular. But this time...the food was outstanding. We split the trout dip, and my wife had the coconut shrimp and I had the grouper. Everything was really great, loved it all. Good beer list for my wife, adequate wine list for me. Service was a bit slow but nothing really to complain about. Altogether, I'd really recommend Vola's.
Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We are thrilled to know you had a wonderful time with our dishes as we look forward to hosting you again soon.
Buck a shuck...can’t go wrong with that!!! We followed up 3 dozen oysters with a roasted butternut squash topped with bacon, sliced almonds and a maple syrup drizzle...on the specials menu!!! We finished up with fish tacos that were to die for!!! Matt was a great server and totally took care of us with great recommendations!!! We were in heaven with the oysters...the mignonette sauce was fabulous, if you like that!!! If you’ve never tried it, give it a shot!!! You won’t be disappointed!!!
Hi Erin, thank you for taking the time to leave us the lovely review! We are delighted to know you enjoyed all of our offerings, especially Buck-a-Shuck. We will be sure to pass along the kind sentiments to the team and we hope to see you again soon.
Dalton was a great server! And we enjoyed our lunch!
Thank you for taking the time to leave us the kind review! We look forward to having you again soon.
Good food and atmosphere
Thank you for the review! We hope to see you again soon.
Sean our server went out of his way to make a mediocre experience great!! His attention to detail and attentiveness were top notch. However that’s where it ended the frittered came out fried even though the menu says something completely different. My lovely partner ordered the salad and crab cake which were okay. But please how can you screw up a salad!! I had the fish and chips which was entirely too big a portion and rather bland

My friend and I brought our adult daughters to Volas for drinks and a bite to eat. The food was average. My friend and I had the frozen pina colada's which were very good. My biggest concern was that when our check arrived, there were several items on it which we had not ordered - mixed in with our orders. When this was pointed out to our server, he didn't really seem concerned or apologize but did remove the items. We then asked for a copy of our check and it was never brought back by the server. Check your bill folks!

Great service and amazing food!

It was way too loud Saturday night at Vola's. It's my daughter's favorite restaurant, but we couldn't have any kind of a conversation. My older daughter couldn't eat her fried chicken because it was just way too salty. We've had that before. The calamari is salty. The shrimp you add to a salad is too salty to eat. Ah well. It's close to being a great restaurant, but the noise was off putting and please cut down the salt!
Hi Pam, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We take all feedback from our guests seriously, especially when it concerns the quality of our dishes and the experience we provide. We will be sharing this information with our management and culinary teams and hope you’ll give us another opportunity to impress you.
Both bartenders were very inattentive. Forgot to ring in an item I ordered, didn’t check on us nor ask if we needed anything. Received my food without utensils. The female bartender had a horrible attitude. They both were to consumed with tending to the guest on the other side of the bar that looked more like them, if you know what I mean. This by far was the worst service I’ve ever received. I’m a bartender myself and what I experienced was very unacceptable. We sat there for about 13 minutes before anyone greeted us, I timed it. Even then I had to ask for a menu.
In the industry I’m in we are taught to greet the guest within the first 60 seconds. Even if you are busy tending to other guest etc, you greet them and let them know you’ll be with them in a moment. I doubt I would ever return here. Typically you go to the bar because you receive better and attentive service, at least here this was not the case. Maybe a pre-shift meeting to go over the basics of hospitality and customer service would serve these bartenders well.

Very good - grouper was excellent! Was a bit spicy for one of the clients, but otherwise, very good. Service excellent and friendly.
Hi Mary, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We will be sure to pass along the kind sentiments with the team. We hope to see you again soon.
Volas was a cozy spot for a winter Saturday night. The food was delicious. It was a bit louder/darker than I would have liked but it was a much better option than chart house and Blackwall hitch. Very fun and yummy!

The server was very attentive , the food was fresh and very good. We had the fish and chips and I must say it is as good as you get in London. So for that you can stay local. 😊

Outstanding service, amazing food and perfect cocktails. I am never going to forget that shrimp taco. WOW!!
