The food was bar food but I would say the quality was a step up from most bars. The servers seemed more like they were just hanging out in their own home than really working at a restaurant so the service was very spotty. The decor was very bland and not comfortable at all. But the view of the water... More

There is indoor dining, and also outdoor patio/bar area. Relaxing atmosphere. Live music on weekends.

Decent enough food. First floor doubles as a biker bar on the weekends, which makes it noisy (both while they're all in there partying and especially when they all saddle up, rev their motorcycles, and leave as a group). Good chicken wings.

The Electric Palm Restaurant is right off Route 1 and sits smack on the Occoquan River. Out door dining is lovely particulalry in the spring and offers plenty of fresh air, a relaxing, scenic view of the river, and the marina. My little granddaughter and I had lunch there this past spring and we sat of the patio and watched... More

After getting 2 flat tires off Gordon Blvd, the tow truck driver suggested we check this place out while waiting for him. It was late, near closing time, but the manager Raff made us feel welcome, which we greatly appreciated after coming off a long flight and finding ourselves still many hours away from home. The Electric Palm offers Sunkist,... More

We were looking for a different option to fast food chains, and decided to check out the quaint town of Occoquan. The Electric Palm is right off of I-95 before you get into town. Restaurant overlooks a marina, and it's a pleasant place to dine off the beaten path. Service was quick and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

I drove out to Woodbridge from Richmond just to go to this restaurant. It's on the water at the marina and is simply gorgeous. I ordered the crab cake sandwich and have never had a crab cake this good. No filler, chunks of crab, huge patty- even the Old Bay Aioli was delicious. This is my go to for great... More

Have been going here for a number of years, but things have changed. New management and new menu have changed the atmosphere and the food was not very good. We have actually been twice in the last month, including a week ago and both times the servers were slow and unfriendly, and the food was below average.

Go there when I want a good RARE burger. They are one of the few places you can. More formal upstairs inside but on the deck or downstairs is where you can hear live music.

I don't think the people that work there like their job. They act like it is a pain to wait on you , that's if you can get their attention. They stand around and talk to their friends or the other staff. The food is hit of miss .If restaurant were not on the water, I'm sure it would have... More
