Tin Top was fabulous! The only thing not a 5-star was the sweet tea!! The steaks were outstanding, the shrimp was fresh and the seafood pasta was superb! And the gumbo was perfect!!!

Prime Rib every Friday night will melt in your mouth. Eat inside or on the screened in patio. Start with lobster bisque ,Wedge lettuce salad and prime rib. Top it off with bread pudding or key lime pie.

Certainly worth the hunt. great food ( I had the special which was grouper with the house topping) Gumbo, Oysters, and fantastic live music...call ahead to make sure they have someone up at the mic and you will enjoy yourself. True southern charm and hospitality. Met the owner and he was a great person to chat with regarding the area.

I had the fish tacos. SO good!! Probably the most fish I have ever been served in tacos. My sister-in-law had the pork tenderloin. It was huge and very tasty! (The beauty of dining with family - I had a bite)

First time here and will be back. Fresh local trigger fish was awesome both grilled and pecan crusted. Shrimp and grits really good. Loved the okra and Lima beans with sausage side too. Ordered strawberry bread pudding for dessert yummy ❤️

We were traveling though the area and some people said you must go to Tin Top in Foley. We went on a Saturday evening and it was packed with an hour wait.

We had to wait an hour and a half to get our food which was just okay. Enough said about that, I think.

A friend and I had the pork sandwich, which was actually a Hoosier (Indiana) style breaded pork tenderloin. I wouldn't normally try this in the coastal South, but I'd already had so much seafood I was ready for a change. It was excellent. For dessert I had the Key Lime Pie which was just the right balance of sweet and... More

Have not had the pleasure in a while but every time I visit Tin Top I feel like a local and treated like family. The BEST rib eye and steaks! But the oysters are incomparable! Special place off the beaten tourist path.
