Great Evening Gastronomic Delight

Was on business in Birmingham and my client took me to Hot & Hot Fish Club. It was a lovely night and we sat outside. The waiter was very informative about the menu and when I expressed that my palate was sensitive to spices, he steered me clear of the crawfish bisque which was a smart move. My... read more

The reputation this place has definitely stood up to our experience. I'd highly suggest creating your own tasting menu like we did if you don't have a chance to call ahead and have the chef prepare one for you. Allow the knowledgable staff to guide you through with cocktail/wine pairings and you can't go wrong. My favorite part of the... More

We went to Hot & Hot Fish Club on April 3rd. My words probably won't do justice to how good our dinner was. Every bite from start to finish was outstanding. After the complimentary amuse bouche, we ordered a bottle of wine and split a Boudin appetizer. A perfect start. My wife had the grilled Sheepshead and I had the... More

The food, the service, the atmosphere, everything here is top notch. Most people splurge on a special night out maybe once a year. You can't go wrong if you spend that special night at Hot & Hot Fish Club. Whether it's an anniversary dinner, important business meeting, or just because, Hot & Hot's the best Birmingham's got. We love it... More

Read all the reviews, so my girlfriend and I decided to give it a try. The service was wonderful. The waiter described all the dishes for us. The way he talked about each dish, it sounded like the chef took hours in making each dish special. With all the excitement and great expectations, I ordered the duck and my girlfriend... More

Hot and Hot is my favorite Birmingham restaurant. It is one of the top restaurants in Birmingham. It is not stuffy, but a fun place with excellent food. Hot and Hot always has new, exciting dishes with friendly, attentive staff. Everything on the menu is excellent. My favorite item is on the menu in the summer and it is an... More

Always one of my favorite spots for an outstanding meal in an environment that is comfortable for either a casual or an elegant event. The open kitchen generates a high energy environment with lots of delightful aromas and an interesting visual experience. Although especially known for its outstanding, fresh fish dishes, I chose leg of lamb, garnished with broiled potatoes... More

Chef Chris Hastings has created one of the finest restaurants in Birmingham with one of the most unlikely names. A stranger to Birmingham might expect fried catfish and hushpuppies from a name like Hot and Hot, but this white tablecloth restaurant has challenged Chef Frank Stint’s Highlands, Chez Fon Fon, and Botegga’s as the top upscale eatery in the city....

My husband and I ate here with friends while visiting Birmingham from the Columbus, GA area. At the Hot & Hot Fish Club, we were reminded what an amazing experience it can be to dine at a top-notch restaurant. Our waiter was absolutely impeccable in every way, and the food was incredible.

This is our favorite place to eat in B-ham. We always sit at the kitchen bar to watch the culinary creativeness firsthand. The fish is always fresh and the local veggies outstanding. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Delicious!
