Walked in and saw a line in this huge, warehouse space. I was starving so I didn't want to wait for a table. When I asked the host up front, he said to go over to the counter and talk to cashier Valerie. She said, instead of waiting for a table, to place our order with her and go sit... More

Dinner with oyster-craving friends brought us here. We sat in the 'big room' where you first enter in & you get waited on. Live music on a Wednesday evening added a lively, even romantic feel to the place. The oysters were excellent, absolutely fresh! They always have a good selection of fresh oysters but I love to revisit Apalachicola. And... More

For the first time in my 20 years of visits, we managed to get downtown to eat. This is a delightful place that combines a real fish market with a seafood restaurant. The market also includes Greek spices, olives, olive oil, and peppers. The owners are Greek, so you can get Greek entrees as well as seafood. They serve a... More

I found this place by looking thru the reviews. We like local restaurants instead of chains.I like fish but my boyfriend CRAVES it. We went around 6:00 on a Friday night and was seated right away even though it was packed. It was the best fish I have eaten in a very long time and was reasonable in price. Our... More

We come to Birmingham about once a year and always visit the Fish Market. Was last there on July 15, 2014 with wife and daughter. As usual, it was wonderful! We started with fried calamari and it was crispy and tender. Breading is a bit spicy but we like that. Daughter had stuffed salmon with fries and coleslaw. Sides are... More

Our trip to the Fish Market Restaurant in Birmingham, AL was a nice venture. We went on a Wednesday night at 7:00pm for dinner for three adults. We were immediately seated in the main dining room. The restaurant was full and very busy. Our waitress greeted us within a few minutes and provided ice water for the table and menus.... More

The Fish Market is a bustling atmosphere. You can go through a buffet type service or table service. The grilled red snapper with greek salad is terrific. Everything I tried I liked.

I don't know if this restaurant has changed hands, management, or just fallen on hard times but the quality is not what it once was - and the prices are higher. I ordered fried shrimp. You won't believe this but the kitchen butterflied the shrimp, cut off half and fried the other half with the tail attached, resulting in you... More
