I love this place! Great food, Great service! I especially love my Birthday here, and other special occasions! If you come to Birmingham, you MUST go see the Fish Market!

This is a very popular seafood dining location, especially to the UAB crowd. Menu prices are fair and portions are adequate but this is definitely not a fine dining experience. Going through a fast food line to order and then having to travel to the bar to pick up your drink is not what a lot of people would desire.... More

We use to like going here but the past two times have been extremely disappointing . Shrimp mushy, Greek salad has skimpy toppings, even the fish in the case (which was minimal) looked old. I am afraid they are closing up!

This restaurant did not impress me. The service was poor. Lots of items dropped and noise near our table. The food was mediocre. It is not a Greek restaurant nor can they claim they have Greek items. It is a seafood restaurant. We ordered the seafood platter and it was seasoned nicely (not too salty or spicy). My husband ordered... More

Many of our native B'hamian friends recommended this place, so one Saturday afternoon we were in the area and stopped in for lunch. The atmosphere was nice and the service was good, but the food just wasn't as great as we were hoping it would be. We didn't leave with a "wow" factor. Keep in mind that I am a... More

I've been to this restaurant on Hwy 280 3 times and have been unimpressed and vowed not to go there again. A friend talked me into going back against my better judgement. I ordered Salmon medium rare and they brought me a thin overdone piece of fish. I also asked for blue cheese dressing on my salad and they charged... More

While the food we dined on was good, it was just not something that left a great impression. We shared and appetizer that was pretty good, but the shrimp in the shrimp n grits were incredibly fishy tasting. On another note, the women's room was disgusting and makes one wonder what the kitchen looks like. We may give it another... More

I have been twice in the past two months. Each time I was served sh_t that no responsible restaurateur would allow to leave a kitchen for human consumption. The first time, two or so months ago, I ordered some cold-water oysters, Blue Point as I recall. They were old and tasted nasty. I ate one of the dozen and left... More

This restaurant is absolutely delicious. First of all, there's nice indoor and outdoor seating. The menu is extensive with unending choices for all. The appetizers, entrees, and drinks were tasty. The service was outstanding and we didn't want to leave. Mainly because we were having a great time and we were stuffed! I highly recommend you visit because you will... More

Big and interesting seafood menu with a Greek twist! If you're looking for seafood, you'll find something here to make you happy. Love the fact that you have two dining options as well - full service restaurant with a full bar OR walk-up ordering at a register and seat-yourself dining for a quicker, but still delicious experience!

Thank Leslie W
