It's Like being on the Gulf

Good Food & Service, We try to go every time we are in Birmingham. Like their broiled fish the best.

This is one of those unique places you have to visit if you stay in downtown Birmingham. Highly recommended by the locals, as well. The food is delicious. I recommend going for dinner as this place is PACKED for lunch.

Born and raised in Florida, The Fish Market does a great job with their catch! Big variety, trigger fish to tuna, prepared from broiled to fried, excellent quality with a Greek flair, unique setting . . . What more can I say! If you are downtown and wish you were at the coast eating seafood, stop in at the Fish... More

I eat here regularly. The prices are reasonable, lots of fresh fish and vegetable options, and consistent. Oyster bar is excellent. It does not pretend to be gourmet, the ambiance is Greek fish house. Portions are large and you will not leave hungry or broke, but you probably won't feel like you ate the next Iron Chef place either. Service... More

I eat at the Fish Market a couple of times per month. The menu is huge and diverse. There should be something for everyone. My favorite two dishes are the stuffed salmon and Athenian grouper. I have to watch my sodium, and this is one of the few places I can get a wonderful meal where they truly don't put... More

I had read several rave reviews and ordered what they had suggested. The baked oysters were good. Two of us had Amberjack and it was good. The special slaw dressing was maybe an acquired taste. The Greek Mussels appetizer was just ok. The cafeteria style eating area did not smell good the bathrooms were terrible. Be sure to eat in... More

I went to the Fish Mkt. in Birmingham Al., in late October 2015. My friend& I were looking for a nice, upscale, quality dinner, in an area that seems to be lacking that type of establishment. I should preface this rating by saying that I'm from the D.C/MD/NoVa area, and quite spoiled when it comes to being surrounded by a... More
