Best in Birmingham.
I stopped in there with my sister and her fiancee. It was a Thursday and packed, but we were seated immediately. Great food, reasonable price. Put's other restaurants in town to shame for quality and fast service, not to mention price.
Streetside Seafood is the best kept secret in the metro area. I've been dining at this place for over 5 years now. I started going there for lunch while working in Birmingham and have continued to go for dinner as well. I can honestly say I have never had a bad meal in this gem of restaurant. Yes it's quite small, and get's crowded very quick, but for me that's what makes it fun. The lobster bisque is to die for. The bread is splendid. The menu changes daily. My absolute favorites are the oyters rockefellow are worth the trip by themselves. Simply Marvelous!!!!!!!!!
Service strong, food weak.
The room is a bit too narrow--they're clearly trying to cram too much into too little space. Service was good. The big disappointment: the menu made the entrees sound interesting, in contrast with the bland, skimpy portions which were delivered to our table. If this is the way things are headed in Birmingham, it will be wiser to stick with establishments that have been around a while.
