I always recommend The Tin Top Restaurant to newcomers to our area. The Oysters Fenton are to die for! My mouth waters just thinking about them! One way to know this is a great place to eat, the locals eat here and love it! You can't go wrong at The Tin Top!

This is the best kept secret in the gulf. We asked one of the locals for a nice place to get a steak dinner and this is where he sent us. It is off the main path but well worth the drive if you are looking for a fabulous steak dinner. The stuffed mushrooms were awesome and the Wedge sald... More

We always visit Tin Top when we are in the area and have never been disappointed. The food and service are excellent. The menu is large and the atmosphere is very comfortable whether eating inside or outside. Highly recommend this place if you are in the Gulf Shores area.

We will be back! Local favorite, nice outdoor seating and cozy inside seating. Great wine and drink list, lots of beer options and the food was good.

large menu focus in on local seafood, Fried, grilled or blackened. Tried the Gumbo-not the best (best is at the Old Oyster house). No draft beer-just bottled-bummer. Well worth the visit.

We love this place - everything is fresh and served in a great atmosphere. The crab claws appetizer is amazing, we split the pork chop stuffed with seafood. Don't skip dessert! It is hard to find non fried "everything" in this area - Tin Top is fresh and not grilled!

We came to Tin Top for our final meal (lunch) on our family Spring Break trip last week (March 2017) and I must say, although we were all pretty well "shrimped out" by time we got here it was the best meal any of us had all week! I had the shrimp-n-grits which is my favorite southern dish and pretty... More

The food is fantastic. We had crab cakes and Queen Snapper. Wonderful taste. Vickie was our server. She was very attentive. The food came out in great time. We will definitely go back. We hear the steaks are superb.

My husband and I visited on a Saturday night and expected to have a long wait. We were seated immediately, and the service was excellent. The whole experience was very enjoyable, and the food was delicious. All staff were friendly and accommodating. We will definitely return when back in the area.

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!!!
