Go there!!!

My husband and I went for dinner and we loved it! We had the smoked swordfish pate and peppered tuna. Both were delicious. This place is for those of us that like getting off the beaten path.

Dropped in mid-afternoon for a drink and meal. My wife and I both had the Fried Shrimp and Catfish Combo. The Shrimp were as good as I have had anywhere. The catfish was good but Not my favorite batter. Overall very good with reasonable prices. I will be back. Frozen Margaritas were good.

Came in here by boat with family for a late lunch. I had the seasonal crawfish that they were boiling on the patio. At five dollars a pound you can't beat the price. It was cooked extremely well and well seasoned to my liking. Everybody else's meals were enjoyed as well. Service was exceptionally well considering how busy the restaurant... More

This beautiful restaurant on the water is a fun excursion for the entire family, well worth the trip. Whether you choose to come by car, truck, taxi or boat, you will feel welcome when you get there and stuffed when you leave. I hear that the fried catfish is some of the best "ever", but I love the fried shrimp... More

Much better in old building prior to Hurricane Like. Been here many times. Not too good last time. Tonight was terrible. Margaritas watered down, terrible waiter, cold entrees, unorganized waiter, and last visit waitress was awful. Served half of our party and then delivered a different table's food and the brought the children's food. Food bland , forgot to bring... More

I have never had a "bad" meal in this restaurant. I have had some that were better than others and even slightly poor service from time to time but this is rare indeed. You simply are not going to go wrong eating at Top Water. They are quite service oriented and quality of product is well controlled by the kitchen... More

Great view and super seafood selection. Stuffed flounder and grilled shrimp delicious. Desserts ok. Don't let packed parking lot keep you away. We had immediate seating and quick service.

It's been a few years since I've been here. I took a chance today after Christmas shopping and its still just as nice as I remember with excellent seafood and service. I'll have to visit again the next time I have out of town visitors to show a good time on the bay.
