Fresh seafod with Greek flair

We went to the Fish Market on 280 for Father's Day. As usual, the fish and shrimp were fresh and well-prepared (not overly seasoned, but flavorful) with tasty sides to choose from that made everyone happy.

The Fish Market is a restaurant I visit frequently. I enjoy the sea food and the music from the live band. They have a great selections of wine and the deserts are very good.

This used to be one of our favorite places to eat. Then the quality became inconsistent. It would be great one visit and horrible the next. The last several visits have just disappointing.

On Sunday, we to make a last minute change when we realized our usual cafeteria downtown was closed on Sundays. I made a quick call to the Fish Market who said they could accommodate us. It turned out perfectly. They have a casual dining option where you order at the counter and then wait for your food at a table.... More

The Fish Market is one of those places that if it were in my foodie city of Chicago, I would go weekly. Just look at their menu http://thefishmarket.net/online-menus/. I love to sit at the bar and eat oysters, they are alway fresh, sourced for variety and the prices are incredible. The bartenders are a hoot and pour generously. They are... More

This local restaurant is one of the best fresh fish restaurants in Alabama. The menu is large and varied and the prices are reasonable. The downtown location is very nicely appointed and has a 2-piece jazz band most nights. It makes for a very enjoyable evening.

Went twice in two days and left amazed at how good the crawfish was and the amount of food was incredible. Key lime pie was so tart and great.

The food is nothing spectacular but there are a lot of options and a lot of seating so there is usually no wait and good for a large group. The hushpuppies are particularly good though.

Well I gave the The Fish Market another try. I reluctantly ordered the same thing I ordered last time to see if there was a change for the better. NOPE. I am not a huge fried fish fan as I normally opt for grilled with no sauces trimmings etc. But every now and then I get a hankering for some... More
