Poor Start That Ended Very Very Well

My wife and I arrived at The fish Market at 1:30 on a Saturday afternoon. We were immediately seated and waited on. I ordered the Grilled Amberjack and a cup of Gumbo. My wife, the Fried Oysters. We noticed people that came in long after us were getting their food before us. Finally at 2:07 our... read more

Great place, great atmosphere, great service, but most of all, incredible food, both in quality, preparation and delivery. With a couple of family members visiting a friend at UAB Hospital, we asked for "the best local restaurant" in the city. FMR was the only one anyone mentioned. I had the grilled baby octopus over Orzo tossed in a special marinara... More

Something new to me: Scallops and artichokes over pasta. It was excellent and filling especially with the sides of greek potatoes and fried okra. The scallops and artichokes could have been served over rice or pasta. The pasta choice was exceptional. I try to dine here every visit to Birmingham. Do not let the price frighten you, it is worth... More

I was in Birmingham for one overnight business trip and looked for a good spot to eat within walking distance of my hotel. Based of Trip Advisor reviews, I chose The Fish Market. It was much better than expected. The place was hopping on a Friday night, and I decided to sit at the raw bar to be more sociable... More

This Fish Market should not be confused with the one on Highway 280. The food here is always superb although traditional seafood lovers have fewer choices that are not done in a Greek style. I'm always a glutton for seafood and at any seafood restaurant I seek out a broiled seafood platter. The Fish Market's platter has never disappointed me... More

When you have guests, this is a great place to go. It's beyond the traditional Southern barbecue, yet very much the local place. Excellent food, nice-looking building. I'd go through the line rather than do the sit-down-and-order service. You can do either.
