“Good food in the Hood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

If you like hot fish at a fair price, this is the place go. Don't expect a sit down meal, but it is to go only....hot and fresh

“SIMPLY FRIED FISH AT IT'S BEST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2011

Alabama Fish Bar located on the corner of Liberty and Race streets, in a store front location painted blue and white, serves all fish for carry out. Parking is on the street and scarce to come by, you might need to drive around the block several times, before a parking spot opens up during the hours of 11:00AM - 2:00PM. You enter the shop straight into the open kitchen-preparation room. The operation is in assembly line order, runs efficiently, and is quick once you place your order. The order lobby is small, tight, and so crowded that patrons are normally standing in line, outside the entrance and sometimes around the corner. All fish is fried fresh and the orders are packaged for carry-out, almost immediately. The fish selection is six pieces of cod or perch (no mixing of selection). It is served with two slices of white bread (at the bottom of the paper basket to soak the excess frying oil) fresh cut fried poatoes ( they have a potato cutting machine that slices the whole potatoes as needed). Condimernts are available on the side, as is a complimentary serving of a mixture of fried creole onions and spices.

All of this is then placed in a brown paper bag as your receipt number is called, and out the door you go.
