Excellent food...friendly athmosphere

I keep going back to this pace everytime I visit Birmingham...and I do not get disappointed. The food is good, teh service excellent and even the owner comes ariound to say hello. The place is always packed for lunch since it is within the vicinity of the UAB medical center.

If you're in downtown Birmingham you really can't go wrong choosing this place. The atmosphere is great in an old warehouse setting, and there is a great variety of both grilled and fried shrimp. I would characterize the style as both Greek and a bit of Louisiana. I had the combo plate where you can try multiple items. I was... More

They have 3 different ways to take orders. Of course there are "to go" orders, but then you can be seated & waited on like a family restaurant or you can place your order, get your own drinks, etc. I watched this process while waiting on my take out order, it seems to work well, although several customers didn't understand...

We ate here recently, at the location in Hoover. It was good, but nothing about it was great. I had the coconut shrimp. Again they were good. The crab cake my husband had, was great. Fish market has reliably good seafood, but none of it was truly outstanding.

I'm just not as anormed with this place as many of my friends. It is more than adequate as an average eatery but no more. I would go back as a member of a group but would not choose it if asked, for any occasion.

Fantastic fresh seafood. The raw oysters are shucked to order. Great food all around. Downtown has good outside seating and ample parking

I wanted to take my sister to this place to experience the delicious fried crab claws and guess what? They were out of them. This is my second time coming to the downtown location and they ran out of this item.

As a lover of raw oysters, The Fish Market is my stand-by for those taste-cravings for the Gulf of Mexico. In the past, you could always find Appalachicola oysters (my personal fav), but now they are usually from Gulf area outside of Louisana or Texas. There is both full-service and part-service options for seating. Frequently, there is a jazz trio... More

George Sarris got it right! A welcoming spot for an individual to visit the oyster bar, a casual night out (with music on Thursday nights, maybe more often), to reserving a private room or outside for a special event...it will please all! Fresh fish, authentic Greek dishes and hospitality!

Great venue and environment. They had a jazz musician playing inside and the food was fantastic! Definitely check it out!
