If you are looking for a go-to seafood spot, Birmingham has many to choose from. From a great hole in the wall to fancier spot, you’ll be able to find your favorite fishy spot to chow down. Whether you are craving fish, oysters or even a whole bunch of Shrimp, these restaurants have got you covered.
La Perla Nayarita
Address: 5712 Chalkville Rd, Birmingham, AL 35235
La Perla Nayarita is the only place in town where traditional Mexican meets Seafood. They serve a slew of delicious seafood dishes that are to die for. Try their Ceviche Tostadas for a great appetizer. You can’t go wrong with an order of Garlic Butter Crab Legs with Diablo Sauce. If you are feeling even more adventurous you should try their pineapple stuffed Shrimp and Octopus.
Jubilee Joe’s Cajun Seafood Restaurant
Address: 2341 John Hawkins Pkwy, Suite 119, Hoover, AL 35244
Cajun is definitely the way when it comes to a seafood dinner. Jubilee Joe’s Cajun Seafood Restaurant has got it down pat. The seafood gumbo is a go-to on their menu, especially since they won Birmingham’s Best Gumbo in 2010. They offer a variety of different, fresh boils so you can get that oyster, shrimp, crab, and potatoes combo you were craving.
Five Point Public Oyster House
Address: 1210 20th St S, Birmingham, AL 35205
Compliments to the Chef at this chic place. Not only do they offer a great selection of beers and wines, you will get the freshest seafood around. With over 8 different versions of delectable oysters, 5 Point Public Oyster House will be your next pit stop for your next seafood lunch or dinner. My go-to is their Mussel Fries. They are to die for.
Red Mountain Crawfish
Address: 201 41st St S, Birmingham, AL 35205
Technically, crawfish isn’t seafood but we’ll count it anyways. Red Moutain Crawfish is a great way to get reasonable priced crawfish with bangin’ flavor. If you’ve never tried a crawfish they will change your heart after one bite. They also offer some great Cajun boiled shrimp fresh from the gulf. Yum!
