The Fish Market Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Since 1982, The Fish Market Restaurant has offered Southside diners seafood fresh from the coast. Guests may order at the counter in the large market area, although an oyster bar on one side of the market and one full-service section offer table service. Gumbo is popular, but the cioppino brims with scallops, shrimp, grouper, squid and mussels in a slightly spicy tomato-based broth. Shrimp Saganaki, a dish of Gulf shrimp sautéed in white wine with tomatoes, bell pepper, onion and feta, comes atop creamy orzo. Etouffée features either redfish or crawfish. The huge menu also includes five variations on po’ boys. Grilled seafood options abound for those watching calories. Southern sides such as fried okra, black-eyed peas or collards are good choices, along with Greek potatoes and Greek salad. Do try the John’s Slaw, finely shredded with a tangy French dressing. Sweet-tooth endings are satisfied with desserts such as Key lime pie or baklava, but here, we prefer to spend our calories on appetizers and main courses, along with the mostly American wines, beer and cocktails to complement them.
