Just thought I'd give a good shout out to Clare and Don's Beach Shack in Falls Church. A bit noisy, party atmosphere sometimes with live music inside or out. Grilled fresh fish is reasonably priced and well prepared. No-nonsense sides of mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus show the proprietors are more concerned about feeding people well than fashion.
Even the house salad, a chopped version, is hearty and delicious. Altogether a positive experience in boisterous surroundings.
