Slow service and over-priced

Ordered crab claw appetizer(expecting usual order). Received 1LB and charged $38.00 after waiting 45minutes. I was with a table of 4. None of us was impressed with run-of-the -mill pasta and seafood dishes especially considering the prices and service was very slow.

I had their Spinach Salad and it was ok but pretty average. I enjoyed sitting outside and the server was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is wide open airy space and felt like it was set up for more stand-up kind of crowd.

Boy was I surprised. I ordered a dozen oysters on the half shell and it was $20.00. Now I have eaten oysters all my life in many many places and never paid $20.00 for 12 oysters. I just think it is way to expensive. Never again.

I had the Chicken Rockefeller and my friend had the Shrimp and Grits. They were both delicious! Our server was great as well! The only down side was the limited wine menu. But what I had was good, so it turned out fine. If you go do NOT park in the bank parking lot. They will tow your car.

I gave it an average (at best). My wife and I stopped in January 2015. The service was excellent and the fried (large oysters) were excellent. After this experience we went back, the service was not really great and the food was (just) average.I thought that this was just an off night. My wife and I gave it another chance,... More

I ate at Tin Top before the big change and while it was a quality restaurant, I am a big fan of the new setup and menu. It's a sports bar with all of the normal food you would expect at a sports bar but the menu has an upscale twist with higher quality options available. My wife and I... More

Entertained some friends there, last week. Great food that's reasonably priced. Staff was extremely friendly and polite. Will definitely be setting up future luncheons in weeks to come. Best place to eat before a concert.
