Chuck's Fish

Chuck's Fish - Birmingham, ALMy Mom is in town for a couple of nights while she attends a teacher conference at Samford. There is a new restaurant on 280 that we have been waiting to try - Chuck's Fish. Chuck's Fish took over the space previously occupied by Prairie Fire Grill. We took my Mom to Chuck's tonight and we all loved the food.

To start they bring out some bread and butter. It is small slices of a french baguette with an herb butter. The butter tasted like it had some Italian seasonings in it. It was good. We all skipped appetizers and salads and chose to go with just our entree. I got the Panned Chicken Pasta, Tadd got the fish tacos and my Mom got the Shrimp and Grits. Everyone loved their entrees. We were too stuffed to have dessert.

I had the Panned Chicken Pasta - SHOCKER!
The chicken was seasoned nicely and coated with Panko Bread Crumbs. It was topped with fresh basil and tomatoes and served over penne pasta in a garlic cream sauce.
It was really good. I didn't share!

Tadd had the grilled Mahi Tacos - he said they were good and spicy. It was served with a side of Mexican style rice and some avacado slices.

My Mom had the Shrimp & Grits - she said it was out of this world. It came with 8 shrimp and some great onions. The shrimp was poached in Vermouth. The polenta was wonderful. She tried to eat it all, but couldn't make it.

Overall, Chuck's was great. It was pretty busy for a Monday night. I bet it is packed on the weekend. They serve the famous White Chocolate Bread Pudding - we didn't get any :( Next time!!

Pin It!
