The best seafood restaurant in Birmingham - you can not beat the combination of great food and great prices.

We were looking forward to a delicious dinner at this highly touted fish restaurant in Birmingham. Alas, service was slow and disorganized. Fish was over-seasoned and vegetables were soggy. Fried oysters were superb however: and the jazz combo talented and soothing. Perhaps this was an off-night for the staff.

I live in a suburb of Birmingham and this is a true place where the locals eat, over and over. My wife and I prefer to eat at the oyster bar and have never been disappointed with anything we've ever eaten here. Watching Mohammed shuck oysters is always fun. Raw Oysters from a variety of location from Apalachicola to Prince... More

Once again the FM staff tries to gouge you unfairly for more money. Ordered a Greek salad instead of two sides. The waiter says" feta cheese" I say yes. I thought well maybe some don't like it. I've never heard of a Greek salad without it. Wanted the advertised snapped throats. There were signs everywhere for them But they were... More

I should note that I have eaten here several times over the years and have had fine experiences. This past time, however might have been the end of the relationship. I took my family there (first time for them) and had talked it up. I had never been there for lunch, so maybe it was just a lunchtime funk. Food,... More

I did the big-and-fancy dinner last night which was great, but expensive. Today for lunch I came to the fish market. Actually got to meet the owner, George, who is a great guy. I was really impressed that I could get a dozen oysters for less than I paid for a half-dozen last night. And they do the bakers dozen-plus... More

In the "old days" I used to love going to Fish Market. The snapper magic and sides, and the prices were phenomenal. Whenever I eat there now at the Hwy 280 location, I am always disappointed in the quality and preparation of the food. They give you the option of going through the traditional line to order and serve and... More

I am stingy with my 5-star ratings, but this restaurant gets one because of its all-round quality at affordable prices and great service. We went here after the Birmingham Bowl based on trip advisor reviews. We were seated in a small room off to the left that was more cozy than the larger family-style room where you first come in....

We came into town for the holidays to get together with family. Our favorite when my husband and I lived in the city years ago was Alabama Seafood and we had to have fried crab claws. They had these here and we ate them like they were our last meal; they were delicious and at nearly $30.00 a pound not... More
