The Fishmarket Restaurant Reviews
Good seafood! Great for carryout. Smells way to fishy inside to eat in. I realize it is a seafood restaurant but what about better ventilation? Also, aweful busy at peak times and the service shows.
If you want fresh seafood at very reasonaable prices, this is the place to go! I highly recommend the crab claws and the Greek home-fried potatoes!
Located in the large medical center area. I have eaten there many times. It is also a fish market, and they send trucks to the Gulf every A.M., so the seafood is very fresh. Huge menu. One orders and a few min. later, a small magic door opens and you pick up your tray (no waiter to tip!) Large portions of very good food. Catfish, snapper, crab claws, shrimp, combo platters all great. Wonderful side dishes. I could eat there several times a week. Also, you won't believe how inexpensive it is!
I love the Fish Market. Their cookies are good as is their seafood, which is the most important of course.
The meal was good. The restaurant nice but a bit disorganized and noisy. Overall a good price/quality ratio.

Can't go wrong with the olatter. Fried or broiled it is delicious!
by Marc D.
Fresh fish delivered daily and plenty of menu options to choose from.
by Joshua M.
Fresh fish! Also @ the public market... olio di oliva... great oils and vinegar!
by Lucretia B.
The fish is so fresh. Skip the bambam shrimp tho. Also no on the gumbo. Chowder is descent, trout is off the hook. Grouper also fantastic. Small band of retirees plays banjo, horn and upright base.

Service was great and lovely atmosphere with the live music, but the food was NOT GOOD. Crab cakes, salmon skewers, and seafood platter - all very Bland!! Truly a disappointment!!! :-/
by Danielle M.
This is my go-to place for quality, delicious food! Love the blackened fish- grouper, snapper or salmon and the oysters on a half-shell.
by Deanne Hayes

If you come for dinner, have a small lunch. If you come for lunch, have a small breakfast. The portions are huge!
by Rent M.
We must have caught them on a bad night. Fried shrimp we were served was hard as a rock, obviously had been in a warmer since lunch. Will not return.
I spent almost $50 on dinner for two. You would @THINK@ this place could do better than lunchroom silverware in a plastic bag and all the condiment bottles on the table were dirty and sticky.

Great mix of Greek and seafood. Salmon kabobs were Amazing!
by Natalie A.
The fish was great, but the scallops were over cooked. Otherwise a nice restaurant.
by Rick W.
Call ahead for orders on Friday!
by Shayla Lauren
I highly suggest the Greek salad with fish on top. Make sure to get the hush puppies.
by Asher K.
The Blackened Amberjack is where it's at!

Seafood + Greek influence = Birmingham original
by Wade Kwo n.
Terrific food and excellent service! This restaurant is a must, when in downtown Birmingham.
by Elena B.
Try the Sauteed Shrimp With Chick Peas & Spinach (via @Foodspotting)
by Grant J.
The buffalo shrimp appetizer is amazing.
by CL H.
This place is a redneck joke! Dirty, sticky bottles on the table, 0 atmosphere, serve yourself & pay $26 for lunch. I'll go elsewhere...
by Mark K.
No fish & chips!?!? I mean really?
by David M.
Fried shrimp & grilled snapper is hmm hmm good
by FLYCHK B.
Everything is great, and even the lunch portions are enough for two people to share. I only use self service and sit outside whenever possible.
Make sure you only order what you can eat because the togo boxes are tiny and getting a larger one is close to impossible
by Gina S.
My husband and I usually split the grilled platter. It's huge with a lot of variety
by Scharlene H.

by Aisha H.

by Coconut & Lime

by Jared E.
Not complicated to figure out. Sit down area and an order at the counter area. Great food! Fair prices. Will be back.
by Mark H.
A lot of food for one person.
This is probably my favorite restaurant in Birmingham. Absolutely amazing food for some of the fairest prices I've ever seen. I love the market set up, perfect. However, they need some beer on tap!
by Kaity C.
Try the tuna kabobs, mmmm, and green beans, best ever!
by Professor T.
Full Service was horrible. Worst service ever
by Karen B.
Good food! Poor design. They have some kind of ceazy rulez. Order in this line; pick up your own food. Where you can and cant sit. You need a guide!
by Mike A.
Great Birmingham place!!!
by Ian R.
Don't do the full service option. Self serve is faster and more relaxed. It's what makes the market so great.
Everyone recommended this place, and it was terrible.
by Pat B.
Sauteed crawfish tails -- yum!
by Derek P.
Ask for the mahi-mahi filet. Awesome!
