Been here multiple times and always love it. Came with a family of 9 and they gave great service. Our waitress spoke Vietnamese like my family so they had a great time talking with her. Food was delicious and came out perfectly.

The food was excellent. There is no better place to get Crawfish.

Great Cajun Food
I have eaten at Chasin' Tails several times. The food is great and reminds me of the Cajun food we could get in Houston.

Mussels and Crawfish were delish and came with a decent amount for the price. The crawfish Mac n Cheese was yummy! Cafun fries were a great starter. Fish bowls brought me back to my college days. Limited outdoor seating for a nice day.

Food was excellent and staff extremely friendly but service style was confusing and chaotic. Not a place for groups. Food comes out when dish is completed so some diners start eating long before others but that's there stly and if you know going in its okay. Food is the best.

Boils & Beignets in Falls Church!
We were looking for a casual place to get an early supper b/f a booking signing at next door One More Page Books and we scored a Keeper! Friendly but efficient staff serving real Cajun spiced favs including Crayfish and other shellfish boils on the paper covered table - just dive in w/fingers and share. Bartender Jackie has an excellent selection and treats all as her bff :) We returned for Café du Monde coffee and freshly (and properly) prepared beignets - PERFECT EVENING!
6/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
So much fun!
What a great time we had using our hands with no silverware or plates. We did the big bucket for two (name was something different) and it was a great! Liked that you can pick your sauces and heat. Lot of work for the crawfish but everything tasted great.
6/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
All family members enjoyed the great variety , I personally recommend spicy crab and oysters
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Loved it. this was my second
Loved it. this was my second visit . I took a group from work and they all enjoyed their meals. Service was great, food was great I will go back.

Good food, good value
For the amount of seafood (or other dishes) you get, the price was very reasonable. It was a lot of fun if you don't mind getting a little messy ( if you order their " bags of seafood"). Combined we had the bag of seafood with the garlic butter which was very flavorful, crawfish Mac and cheese, and chicken fingers with fries. My only complaint is that the crawfish weren't properly "burped" and therefore had a "muddy" flavor. Otherwise, the food was very good. Service was decent. Our waitress was a bit of an airhead. Nothing was wrong with our orders though. Other servers seemed to be much better though. You can also buy the t-shirts the servers wear that have fun sayings on the back of them.

GREAT TASTING FOOD
This was my first time but it will not be the last. We have already.plan to go back for a party if 10. The food was plentiful and great tasting.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Must have the mussels and shrimp!!!! Beware cause the Hot is actually HOT! Great service from attentive servers and bartenders.... They serve the mussel, shrimp and crawfish in a bag and by goodness I now drive almost 40 mins for this superbly tasty and surprisingly inexpensive meals.
7/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great reunion spot
We had the signature Crawfish with Hot Cajun Sauce. It takes time to peel those crawdads, but that's okay because it makes for great socializing and reward is the superb spicy taste. We were there during happy hour, and the beer is definitely needed to counter the heat. Service was prompt and friendly.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun with friends
We had a group of 5. The food was great and the service was good. One of the co-owners came out to ask about our experience. It was quite enough for a good time with friends but load enough that we could have brought kids along. It does take some getting used to if you get the bag....no silverware needed.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Chasing MY tail with excitement!
Excellent food, service, prices. This has become my new favorite place. The only issue is with parking. Otherwise, a great experience every time I've been
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a party of 12 - we were seated in a timely manner and it was a wonderful experience. Service was good and the server was kind enough to provide separate checks and we were happy that the gratuity was included! The food was really great. My friends and myself have recommended Chasin' Tails to others and they went this passed weekend and were as pleased as my experience has been. I'll be back!
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
LOVE this place!
The food here is absolutely delicious every time we come! Our favorite is the snow crab legs! The beignets are to die for too!! This is our favorite place to eat, hands down!!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love This Place
I have been here on 3 occasions in 2 weeks. I have told everyone I know about the food, the service, the location. Excellent!
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have not eaten crawfish so good since I moved from New Orleans! These were delicious!!
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
The best bag of food
We always have a good time when going to Chasin' Tails. On our most recent visit we got the Bayou Catch. We just barely finished wheat was brought to us. I can't give too many praises to this place. We couldn't fit in dessert on this visit, which means that there is now a new item on the bucket list. Dessert!
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Second time I've been there. It came highly recomended from a co-worker and each time we've returned we brought other friends that loved it. I've recomended it to many. OUTSTANDING FOOD!!!!!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pinch the tail
I've been to Chasin' Tails a few times but this time was especially exceptional because we were there celebrating a friend's birthday. The service was great, the staff had read the OpenTable notes and were aware that we were there celebrating a birthday which I was very impressed with... A lot of restaurants never pay attention to the notes. We even got a few birthday desserts on the house and the staff joined in on the sing-along. Food was fantastic....their seasoning is great! Overall, great experience and I will certainly come back again.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
4th time, still a charm ;)
Elaine, my waitress was amazing, attentive, & prompt. She addressed me, by name, throughout our stay & came to tell me "goodbye" as I was leaving! Boaz, one of the owners checked on my table, also, introduced himself & was very personable. This is my new favorite spot. It is conveniently located. I just discovered the parking garage, another plus! <3 <3 <3
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife actually slipped and fell due to buttery sauce that was on the floor near the wash station. More care needs to be taken by the wait and bus staff in this area.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Service!! Okay food
The service while dining here was excellent but the food was alright nothing that great.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Witness a vibrant mixed culturally explosive seafood excellence, Monday through Sunday in your own back yard.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
My spouse and I love this place. We love the crawfish and shrimp with the "She Bang" flavor.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just another seafood restaurant
Just another seafood restaurant , nothing significant about it, seafoods are good, but need to work on regular food. I didn't even finish half of my jambalaya, because it was awful.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I went here for a lunch on a Saturday and was impressed. It was my second time there, but the food was so well made and the service was friendly. The spice level is appropriate, I had no problem with medium. I tried the crawfish, shrimp, and clams. The jambalaya was delicious. Garlic butter and cajun spices were delicious. This is a great group experience.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice Neighborhood Steam House
The reviews for this place were 4/5 on most every site I went to, so I went in with somewhat of an expectation, and it really surprisingly delivered. I went for my sister's birthday party, we got pretty much everything and shared. King crab, snow, shrimp, and mussels (these were delish), in multiple sauces. On the side we got gator bites, jambalaya, crawfish mac/cheese, and fried green tomatoes, which were all pretty good. I had a 32 oz yuengling for $9, really can't beat that. Now I would recommend maybe not getting the king crab as it was rather pricey and not particularly great, but everything else was on the money. Overall strong 4/5.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love to taste of new orleans and would recommed the catfish.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love Chasin' Tails!!! Great food and an overall fun experience!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always wanted to try out the food, so glad I did. Absolutely in love with the items on the menu AND it was my first time trying crawfish. So yummy! Can't wait to come back here again.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Chasin' Tails -our new FC favorite!
If you are looking for a casual, fun & yummy neighborhood gem - Chasin' Tails is the place! The Louisiana specialties are delicious and the drinks are awesome!!!
9/17/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food, fun meal!
Chasin' Tails is casual and fun! The bags of seafood arrive hot and seasoned to perfection (lots of garlic!). The bags keep the food warm. Read the menu online before you go to get an idea of the food. You will enjoy the meal more if you wear clothes you can get messy and go with friends you don't mind being messy with. OR order something less messy like the fried foods (with yummy voodoo sauce) or the New Orleans favorites like jambalaya or étouffée.
The crayfish are good, but not much meat. Get at least 2 lbs or 1 lb of crayfish & 1 lb of something meatier like shrimp or crab legs. It's all good. Make a reservation! They don't take reservations past 6:00 p.m. on Friday & Saturday nights (unless you have a party of 7 or more).

Great Lobster and Mussels
This place is awesome. We ordered mussels, lobster, shrimp , and crab legs as a group. They bring it to you in a bag with your corn, potato, sauce. It's a bit un-nerving the first time you see it, but once you get into the food, it's amazing. It's an easy going atmosphere and the service is fantastic. If you're the type of eater that doesn't like to eat with their hands or can't stand the process of eating crabs, this place may not be for you, but if you like great seafood and an "eat with your fingers" atmosphere, it's a great place to go. I also love that they've embraced the fact that you may need a serious sink when you're done. There's a very clean and nice clean up station at the back of the restaurant for washing your hands.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my second time eating at Chasin Tails but my friend's first and our first time trying crawfish. The Bayou Catch, is awesome and I wish there was such a bulk order available during the weekend, as parking can be challenging, when trying to get to eat at Chasin' Tails.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great seafood but can be messy. I liked the bar atmosphere combined with great seafood. I loved the crawfish as appetizer and seafood gumbo as my main course. I enjoyed this place on a Tuesday and it still had a good crowd.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
THEY WERE OVERALL GREAT, FRIENDLY, AND SERVED THE FOOD QUICKLY.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Chasin' Tails has great Cajun cuisine. Not many in the Washington, DC area, but this is one of the best. If you can appreciate shrimp and/or crawfish boils, this is the place for you. Reasonably priced food and good atmosphere. Great for lunch or dinner.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Food Great Service
I went on a Saturday afternoon. There weren't many people there. Our Waitress Aimee was very nice and attentive. The food was delicious. I loved the gator bites with the cajun fries and voodoo sauce. As my entree, I ordered the gumbo and a pound of crab legs with the whole shabang sauce. I was pleased. The beignets were not what I expected, tasted like bread with powdered sugar on it, but I was glad for the experience. I was nice and full.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Smy family live 70 miles from the restaurant however we make the drive at least 2 times a month. I work in the DC area and I recommend this spot to all visitors by now I have referred at least 70 ppl every single one of them has been impressed.
Tip: If you order the house drinks have can handy or hotel!
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had 10 of us dine (4 kids) here for a birthday dinner on a Wednesday night. The place was fairly busy but the service was outstanding. I had asked if I would be able to hang a banner so the Hostess showed me 2 different locations where we could have the dinner which was very nice. They have kid friendly cups for the little ones. Throughout our meal we had 2 different waiters/managers check-in with us to ensure everything was good and we were happy.
We ordered 2 Bayou Catches. The sauce is delicious but the crawfish was a little on the dry side. We also ordered Lobster mac & cheese (DELICIOUS) and the fried chicken platter. Love their fries!! Overall fun place to eat especially for large groups.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Unique, Hot Spot
This was our 3rd visit. Every time we go, the experience just gets better. I love everything about Chasin' Tails!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Was a fun enjoyable place!! Crab legs were delicious.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
First rate Southern experience!!!
Great catfish, gumbo and fried green tomatoes. Better service (AT was the best!). Definitely on our list for. "Often"!!!
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
I had a great time and definitely
I had a great time and definitely will go back. I got the seafood salad and it tasted delicious!
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Brought my parents here for a new eating experience. They'd never had crawfish and it was fun digging in together into the bag of tasty seafood. Would definitely go back. I just wish my crab legs cracked easily. They were hard to open because you couldn't crack them. They just bent really easily. Get ready to get messy!
