Cameron Willis

FANTASTIC SEAFOOD! This place is delicious. The location is a bit off putting, but it’s totally worth the fried fish, oysters, and baked beans. We always stop by when we’re in the area, but we usually take it to go.

Alanda Adams

Best seafood for the best price.

Pat Hellebusch

Been awhile since I've been in there. Two of us eating lunch was $39.42. That's without the tip. The food did not taste like a $40 meal. Would have been cheaper eating at the Fairhope Inn.

Gloria Rayborn

Delicious fried shrimp Cole slaw was also very good. And the French fries.

Veet Voojagig

Fresh seafood well prepared! Friendly staff. Check it out.

Jennifer Bullard

Kim Smith

Really priced high but it's very good


Great seafood

Shelby Buschmann

Friendly service. We arrived rather late, as they were about to close. The soft shell crabs were good, as were the fried pickles.

Kimberly Holifield

The food was great, and the banana pudding was awesome!

Alan Kessler

Best local seafood.

V Troudt

Wow, absolutely the best fried oysters, shrimp, & homemade banana pudding I have ever eaten. Order both the oysters & shrimp lightly fried...order the shrimp "large" rather than popcorn shrimp. The atmosphere is interesting, It is "very" "very" casual, with limited tables, & you go the register to place your order. The food is served on real plates & silverware & the staff clear the tables. The staff is very friendly & are there to ensure good food & quick service. Great po-boys. Very reasonable. Only wish there were more choices for "sides" such as a baked not fried potatoes. The oysters & shrimp are addictive. My new favorite to dine in or take out.

The food is great and the seafood is fresh!!!VERY FRIENDLY STAFF!!!


Stopped in for lunch yesterday for the first time there and it was awesome. Reasonably priced for seafood and very good. I had the shrimp market plate with the potato salad which is off-the-hook! It was the best potato salad in Fairhope. The shrimp were delicious and a good size. My fiancé had the chicken taco with buffalo sauce and fries. His fries were great, well seasoned but the taco wasn’t exactly so great. It was kinda dry and we feel had the breading been warmed up some with more sauce and a little less lettuce it would have been a hit. Other than that it was good. Customer service was very good. Our waitress Shyenne was super polite and very quick. Will be back!

Danny Wagner

Nice place for a quick meal


Great staff and also my favorite FOOD

BJ Green

Absolutely the best Gumbo in the area. Stuffed poboys unreal hamburgers seriously have not been disappointed in anything we have ordered.

Richard Johnson

Good food

Kathy Anderson

Freshest seafood. So good !

Carla Harris

Found this while looking for restaurants to try in Fair Hope. Easy to find but don't let the few parking spaces on the front fool you. There's parking behind the building and access thru the back. My daughter and I were visiting from out of town and I thought this would be as good of place as any to get seafood. We weren't disappointed!!! Walk inside, place your order at the counter, give your name and have a seat. You'll help yourself to soft drinks but there's a bar there as well... Friendly server brought out our order. I would recommend the Seafood Platter if you're hungry!!!

Desiree Doan

Good stuff not cheap

Dianna McClure

On Saturday night I ordered a half shrimp poboy with the cup of gumbo. I have had this many times before and it was outstanding. This time, three small pieces of wilted lettuce was the only garnish on the oversized stale bread. There was an adequate amount of shrimp to eat but not as a sandwich.

Big Pappa Jr

Awesome food and awesome people that's a great recipe

Great food and service

Sunny Scallions

We moved to Fairhope in July of 2018. We recently stopped by Market by the Bay because we kept saying we wanted to try eating there and finally came in and sat down in the bar area. We were greeted by Horace with a big smile. Ordered the shrimp dinner with hush puppies and a salad and my husband had the Po’boy and gumbo combo. It was by far the best seafood we have eaten in Fairhope. Great vibe and energy here. The staff is on point and awesome. All around a great spot and we will be coming back for sure!!

Tom Vinson

In Fairhope 4 days, ate here twice. Great food, great price, prompt service. Not dressy but really good.

Naomi Hatfield

Favorite Gumbo in town!

Mitch Carlson

Best seafood in Fairhope, bar none...Always get the seafood platter and it never disappoints. Seafood is fresh and plentiful, the staff and management are friendly , and the service is fast. If you have a hankering for something from the sea, drive straight to the Market. Trust me on this one.

Sandra Hand

Great place for wonderful food and hospitality!!

Max McGill

plenty of seafood on poor boys & any plate. garlic hushpuppys very good. food worth waiting for.

Snapple K

Really enjoyed the fish tacos. Hushpuppies definitely needs some flavor. If your looking for atmosphere don't stop. The decor needs some serious updating and style. BUT the food is good if you like fried.

Doug T

Great fresh seafood prepared perfectly! Reasonable priced daily specials! I highly recommend!

Richard Eckman

Nothing fancy but good eats. The crab claws seem to be the deal. I liked the fried oysters. Cooked juat right.

Becky Hayes

Had shrimp, coleslaw and fries. Shrimp is best around. Coleslaw was good, but needed a little more mayo, because it was a little dry. Friendly service. Highly recommend.

Deborah Gallaway

Excellent seafood, simple and comfortable atmosphere. Very friendly staff. This is Fairhope's best kept secret.

me to you

Great fried oysters, softshell crabs, and wonderful fried potatoes. No food over-cooked but cooked to perfection. The french fries are so great that they should come with a Blue Ribbon as the best french fries in Alabama. Same for the seafood which is light and cooked to perfection. I wonder what kind of coating is used, what oil, and most importantly, the temperature of the oil.

Dorothy Pettibone

The food here is fantastic! I'm never disappointed when I go there. Food is always delicious!

Elizabeth N Teal

Fantastic flavors best bbq beans

Matthew Sweeney

Pretty tasty, I didn't get the gumbo so I can't give a 5 star, but the fried shrimp dinner was great. Hushpuppies were good, shrimp was fried well, I can't complain about anything.

John Siptak

matt oak

One of the best fish sandwiches I have ever had! The Po-boys are good too! I would recommend the shrimp one!

The food was excellent. Slaw was not overloaded with sugar. Sides were all good. Grilled fish and shrimp fresh and grilled to perfection! Will go back!

Amanda Sarver

Great place with friendly staff. They take very good care of us every time we go! Best gumbo in the area!

Thomas Walker

Good food and good service. You will be pleased with the experience.

Elena Nunez

Mediocre fish restaurant with no atmosphere. The counter was crowded with menus, tooth picks and other materials so I had trouble ordering through all the clutter. I selected the fried oysters and was disappointed with the taste. The one positive aspect was the seafood gumbo which was excellent and reasonably priced.

Kelly Shiver

Great little hole-in-the-wall restaurant. You must like fried seafood to eat here. There a a couple of grilled options but mostly fried. Nothing fancy, come as you, are good eats. You'll probably stand in line if you come at noon. But it's worth the wait.

Jenny Jenny

This is a great little seafood restaurant. Their fried foods aren't too greasy. I avoid fried foods and love the grilled shrimp salad.

John Thomas

Soft shell crab po-boy best one I've had in years. Yum!

priscilla Viveros

They have good service and good food you cannot beat it I would recommend it

Susan/Bob Pearce

Best local seafood place by far. Nothing fancy. Just great, fresh food!

Cherrell McGuire

Good food

Yimishu Chan

Best service, best shrimp loaf, and best tuna dip in Fairhope.

Brian Lehmann

The food was good. Atmosphere is a simple diner. Always enjoy lunch there.

Charles Rudolph

They charge you for a Seafood platter and give you a kid meal. You not getting what you pay for .

Jer Fedor

As usual all very good. The cat fish my favorite. Great employees that care.

Gail Colburn

I had the crab claws, fries and hush puppies. The french fry portion was kind of small but I couldn't eat everything anyway. The food can't out hot and fast. We sat on the bar side . There was a musty odor so could probably use a deep cleaning. We were able to seat eight at the round table and enjoyec the food and fellowship.

Robert Rutledge

Good for lunch when visiting friend in the hospital across the street.

Alma Clausell

Enjoyable anytime visit we visit. Workers always friendly and food is on the mark.

Bill Hogg

This place is a real find. The seafood is fresh and good. Ambience is near zero, but once you are there and served, you don't mind. Mostly frequented by locals. To me, the best gumbo in town. I prefer grilled seafood, but make an exception here. Most items are fried.
