Lunch

I had a lunch portion.of popcorn shrimp and it was delicious but too much. Hushpuppies were ok. Clow slaw was not to my taste but my friend liked it. Corn was almost tasteless. My friend had raw oysters. He said they were very fresh and very good. He also had a small order of hot peel and eat... read more

Big menu, big place, not so big on quality. Semi good seafood. Wife had the hit on their cioppino. Most of the rest of us did the standard Seafood Platter, grilled. How hard is that? Might of been less grease if we ordered them fried. Food was swimming in that fake grilling butter, eecchh. Ordered broccoli and collards for sides.... More

The Fish Market Restaurant serves some of the best seafood I have ever had. My husband and I ate at The Fish Market when it was a tiny one room restaurant more than 35 years ago. Nothing has changed except for the size of the restaurant. George serves some of the freshest seafood I have ever had. He gets fresh... More

The selection and quality were what makes this a "want to come back" restaurant and plan on a late fall trip. Normally a two day weekend, plan on both evening meals at this location.

Party of 3 adults and 3 children stopped for lunch. We were really excited about this meal due to reviews and the menu. It's a large menu with great selection. We were disappointed with the blackening (trigger fish and mahi). The grilled mahi was better. The fried snapper throats were good as well as the fried crab claws. Slaw, fried... More

My husband and I are on a road trip, one of the cities we visited and spent the night was Birmingham. I scanned Yelp to see where would be a nice place to eat. Luckily we came across this restaurant. When we arrived we were met by this very friendly hostess who set us immediately. The ambiance and live music... More

The meal started with our server having a basic attitude of "what do you want to eat don't waste my time asking questions." Her reply to our question about the special, salmon throats, as to what they were and how they were served, was that they were the throats of salmon and they were served on a dish. Picturing fish...

The best Greek cooking in town. This is also some occasional music to add to the melodious meal. There are so many wonderful dishes to chose from. Additionally, there is a bar if you are in need of libations.

This place was not clean, tables at the downtown location need to be replaced as they are aged. Food tasted good. Wait times can be long.
