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

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

Great lunch spot, plastic plates but hot fresh seafood served on a cafeteria like tray you pick up at a window. A local favorite.

My husband & I look forward to dining here when we're in Birmingham. Their menu has something for everyone & it is often hard to decide on an selection. My all-time favorite is the Athenian Talipia!! It has everything I love on it & tastes so fresh. Have to take about 1/2 of it back to the hotel w/me as... More

They truly have the best seafood in town! And their non-seafood items are as equally delicious! You can order at the counter or choose to have full service as well. If you order at the counter, most of the time it's brought out to you anyway but you are not required to leave a tip. (Sometimes we do b/c the... More

People are very friendly but as a vegan, I've had to stop going. Very disappointing that it is almost impossible to find a healthy dish.

Excellent service, Blackened Redfish was very good. Fish Tacos were good. Value is fair, could be better. Stay away from seasonal items if you can.
