Ran in, ate well, ran out

We were in a hurry on a Sat. night, and craved seafood. Stepped into the delightful brick warehouse and skipped the "wait to be served" line, going straight for the self order and pick up. Took no time, and was amusing to grab food from what looked like a cafeteria window. It may not be fancy, but... read more

The atmosphere and the food are both great. Additionally, we always have excellent service. The broiled flounder with a baked potato and cole slaw is my favorite.

It's a little on the pricey side but everything I've had has been delicious! I had fish tacos that were outstanding and my coworker had lobster rolls that he loved!

The Fish Market is steadily declining. I am a long time patron of this familiar restaurant. Many of us in Birmingham have been loyal customers for a long time - but the food quality is nowhere close to what it used to be. This is a shame, but after three consecutive trips, the fish has been frozen every time. Perhaps... More

Our meal was thoroughly enjoyed bay a group of four. We went a little early and had a very short wait. Nice atmosphere and really good food. The special slaw with John dressing brought back memories from years ago.

This was my first visit here w a local friend. I was amazed at the decor, lively atmosphere, awesome food and top-flight, classy service. Jean, our server, was perfect showing her silky smooth style w a sensitivity to our needs beyond measure. She made sure we understood the menu, delivered promptly and followed-up to make sure we were completely satisfied... More

In town on a family visit and we hit the Google while driving to find a unique eating experience. When we pulled up, we heard live jazz drifting out to the parking lot and took in the outside of the place... we thought "great!". It was a loud, overcrowded place, but we were fine with that. However, the food was... More

We took our friend from NM to eat on Tuesday night. We chose to sit in the full service area, initially in front of the live musical trio who were good but too loud for conversation. We were moved to another quieter area with no problem. The service was great, friendly and prompt. The food, including raw oysters, was great... More

Location had a lot to do with my choice of the Fish Market but I lucked out eating there on a recent trip to Birmingham. As I waited for a seat at the bar I chatted with a few locals and learned this place is a favorite of many local folk. Loud and boisterous,simple surroundings, and very good execution all... More
