Have been going to Alabama Fish for over 35 years. Have stopped in there for lunch at just about every place that I have worked. Started when I worked at a place on the Mill Creek, would call ahead and order and would pick it...More

This isn't a bad place. The people who work here were great and I found the lack of dining in space and waiting room to not be a big deal. I felt like the tiny waiting area kind of added to the neighborhood charm. Fries...More

I've been going to Alabama Fish bar for 20+ years. I first learned of its existence when I worked in downtown Cincinnati. This place has attracted a diverse group of customers long before gentrification came to OTR. Alabama's serves great fried fish, lightly battered, great...More

HAD THE COD TODAY, Cannot bee beat! Crazy place on the corner. Always bussy - always a fresh- you have too wait. $9 bucks for 6 pieces COD w/bead, fries, & peppers/onions. Just great all the time.

This place is on a corner and the line sometime stretches down the block. There's not much parking but it's worth it to find a spot because the fish is tasty and they're served with a huge side of steamed onions and peppers. The fish...More

What to choose.....Cod, Whiting, or Perch ? You cannot go wrong with any of the three. I pick up a sack of fish at least twice a month for the family. Great staff and crew.
