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.

The new sports bar look is a good change. What I like the most is that you can get pretty good food while watching a game. They offer the traditional sports bar wings, but then they get crazy and throw in jambalaya and shrimp n grits. Obviously there's more to the menu, but you get the point. You're not limited... More

I have eaten here several times and have never been let down. The food is very good, the staff are friendly and professional, and the price is not bad either. I have tried several menu items, and have been pleased every time. The pizza fries rock!

We went there for dinner and were pretty disappointed. Although we knew that it had changed to a sport's bar, we did not expect it to be so ear-piercing loud due to the open space , the music and the conversations. To make it worse, a private party on the top floor cheered and applauded and contributed to the noise.... More

Tin Top has recently changed from a steak and seafood establishment to a sports bar and the menu took a drastic nose dive, along with the quality of food and service both. The atmosphere before was a bit loud due to the open space, but the excellent food made up for it. They have now installed large tv's all over... More

I have eaten here both before and after they moved to their new location. I can say that each time I have gone the food and service has steadily gotten worse and worse. It is expensive for the quality of food you are given. Much better off walking up the street to Chuck's Fish House for some quality seafood.
