We're visiting Birmingham and had dinner tonight at CSC and were very pleased. The restaurant is very simple,not a "fine dining" atmosphere,but friendly,very informal service..plastic plates and utensils,nice modest wine selection...but most important fresh,very tasty seafood. We shared a main plate of crab cakes, $ 12.95' and a half pound of grilled(sauteed)fresh shrimp same price,I think, each with a small salad and a terrific hunk of corn pudding. They also sell and serve a limited variety of fresh fish and I'm certain that the gulf oysters will be wonderful as soon as they can get them. We already ordered the corn pudding and 4 lbs of shrimp for thanksgiving.....all in all CSC is a very worthy spot .

    Went there for lunch the other day and had the gumbo (very good) and the crab cakes (also very good). They have wine for retail sale and charge a corking fee if you want to have it with your meal. Will have to do that for dinner there.

    Look forward to returning for dinner.

      They have a smoked fish dip that is pretty awesome. Also have gotten Royal Reds from them in the past at a decent. but not great, price. I keep forgetting to eat there...

        Had the gumbo there tonight which was just ok. The grilled grouper sandwich was great for about $9 plus $2 for a side of corn pudding, which was pretty darn tasty too. It's a good, inexpensive and casual seafood option which I very much welcome.
