“Great Concept, just okay food”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

We were excited about having some good seafood unfortunately this didn't happen at the Fish Market. Mussels were tough, Mahi Mahi was dry and over cooked. I have had better fish at Red Lobster. If the fish were good the prices would have been reasonable. Atmosphere is unique and a great place for large groups. The staff was attentive and helpful. Don't think I would go out of my way to return.

“Excellent place to meet with family and friends”
Reviewed 20 November 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

My out of town family and friends love this restaurant as a meeting place. Its large, easy to get in, and the food is terrific. The fish is fresh and can be prepared in a variety of ways. Two thumbs up!

“Great fish restaurant value”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

We had lunch at the Fish Market restaurant and for $10 to $12 we had a fish entre and two sides that were a lot of food. The Cioppino was loaded with fish in a nice savory tomato based broth and my wife had the fish tacos greek style. There were three fish tacos rolled like a burrito with feta chesse, greek slaw and a pico de gallo side. It was a lot of lunch. The sides were more typical southern side dishes and we had the fried okra, collard greens, green beans and french fries.
Service was excellent and they have a respectable beer and wine list.
This is a great value and good cooking and service.

“A neat place with good food.”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

Upon entering you know you are in a fish market. The decor is interesting and the overall ambience lends to a fun experience. The staff was great! The food was very tasty and well presented. I will return if I have the opportunity.

“Service Trumps All!”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

If you like fish, the Fish Market is your place to eat in Birmingham. Very reasonable prices, generous portions served quickly by friendly staff. In fact, staff was so friendly, a bartender stayed with us, after the restaurant closed, to make sure we got a cab back to our hotel!
