The food is always good and the service has been great when we went as a family. BUT our church group of 10 couples made a reservation a few weeks ahead. When we got there, we were told there had to be one check for the group and 25% gratuity would be added for our group. Then the room we... More

I have the options of two locations nearby to drop in for lunch or dinner. Very casual atmosphere with a menu pleasing to any appetite. Service is prompt, food is fresh and very appealing. Anytime I want fish this is my go-to place!

The menu has a very wide variety of seafood, prepared in your choice of a variety of manners. To me, the weakness is the choice of sides. There is a good variety of sides, but so many of them involve starches. Bring some tip money for your server please, if you order from the casual menu. Its the same as... More

While visiting Birmingham on a weekend we discovered that places for lunch were limited. Having had one less than memorable experience at The Fish Market on a previous visit to the city we reluctantly decided to try it again. As on our first experience we were not greeted in the lobby in a friendly manner, the employees continued their conversations... More

The food was delicious and it was so much that I needed a doggy bag. The service was fast and friendly and the atmosphere was just relaxing and inviting. The fish was outstanding and the my vegetables were so, so good. The hush puppies were GREAT and I think I gained 10lbs because I ate so many.

When we first started driving an hour plus just to eat here, the food and service were top notch. It's been a few years now and it has gone down hill big time. Our last and probably final visit was mid day on a Sunday and they had already ran out of what we had initially wanted, deviled crab. After... More

You can go to the more upscale restaurants and get the linen covered tables and the more elegant servers. But, if you're going for the seafood, it does not get any better in Birmingham. Plus, you can go to the Fish Market 4 times for the price of one meal at the more upscale restaurants! Everything on the menu is... More

I'd go to the downtown location - has the most atmosphere. The service is good albeit a bit rushed at times. Not a place to go for a quiet lunch or dinner. Food is simple, lots of iceberg lettuce and feta cheese in the salad. Fish is what they do best.

Give credit where credit is due. Excellent meal on recent visit - my red snapper dish, while not cheap, was the best I've had. Service was tremendous (Kevin). I can confirm a previous reviewer's comment about the staff helping each other out; witnessed that as well. We'll be back.

This is really for the management. Initially very poor service; - drinks slow in coming - starter really slow in coming. I would guess that it was 30 to 40 minutes. We were hungry by this time, and asked for some bread, we were offered crackers, but they never came. - G&T too strong for my wife (OK not a... More
