I was referred to Fish Market by a local business I was visiting for 'nothing fancy, but good food' requirement. Worked late and wanted dinner before heading back to hotel. Not only did this place fit the bill, but I got enough food that I had leftovers for the next night. Chicken gumbo was excellent, along with the Cajun prepared... More

I have been coming here every time I come to Birmingham. The Oyster stew is the best and the best price I know of on the east coast. But do not just think Oyster stew. The fresh oysters and all of the fresh fish is worth the visit. It is a unique place and if you are anywhere close, you... More

Been here before and food has been fine. This time got the Bang Bang Shrimp and it was average at very best. Also got Shrimp and Grits and it was very average. Not my best food experience. We also got sent through the quick order line instead of being sat at a table with a hostess. We then got put... More

My wife and I enjoyed a very delicious meal tonight at the Fish Market. Everything was very tasty! Tried a sample of the Greek slaw, will certainly order this dish next time! I enjoyed the Armenian grouper and my wife the crab cakes. How could anyone not like this restaurant??

We've been craving some good seafood after a lovely vacation at the beach so we ventured over to The Fish Market after reading the TripAdvisor reviews. We had also seen it on Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern. We were not let down. My wife had the shrimp and grits and I had the stuffed salmon after sharing the crab claw... More

We've been going to 'George's' forever! It is the ONLY Fish Market as far as we're concerned. Last night we had great raw oysters (again) and I had the shrimp saganaki. It was AWESOME! You can't get any better!

I don't know anyone who leaves red snapper skin on the fish and fries it, it makes the taste extremely fishy. It is SO easy to take it off with one flick of the filet knife. I don't understand Mr Sarris decision to do this? It is beyond gross, what an oversight. Will stop going there and catering from there... More

My wife and I eat here at least once a week for lunch. We split the grilled rainbow trout or trout almandine with and extra side. The service is excellent. We have never had a bad meal, and the prices are very reasonable.

I like the Metro Birmingham location MUCH better than the Hoover/Inverness area one. First the décor and smell remind me of a "fish market". You might not find that as a plus, unless you grew up making weekly trips to one. This location looks as if it can get crowded. My supervisor told me to book his trip around his... More

I have eaten here often. The fresh shrimp and oysters at the oyster bar is always a pleasure starter. I finished this up with a great fish dish. Order any of them, they are all good from fried, baked and grilled. My favorite is all of them! Enjoy.
