The appetizers were AMAZING! Oysters and sautéed crab were sooo good (my son said 6 or 7 stars). I was a little disappointed at the length of the wait. The shrimp and grits were pretty good but a bit heavy and too much jalapeño in it. The pecan crusted triggerfish was okay. The collards were good but on the sweeter side. Kids said the fried platter wasn’t all that good. I would go back, but would order way differently - focus on the oysters, crab, and shrimp and add on salads or a few sides.

Driving around looking for new places to drone, Pelicans to photographed when my buddy Bob said, "hey, let's eat at Tin Top". Well, I said, "ok"! And that is all she wrote. Roadside local eatery and pour kind of local place enriched with southern charm and Alabaman hospitality. I ordered the tin Top Oysters with a cup of seafood gumbo. My buddy Bobby ordered a cup of seafood gumbo and a shrimp Po boy from the most awesomeness Marla whom delivered me drag cup of Joe. Does not get any better than this. My bud Bob (spells his name backwards) may have proposed to her. Remember to support your local eateries or we will both starve....
