“Pickled onions, turnip greens, and cornbread mmmm”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We took the family with us this time. We had been here by ourselves 3 years ago. We were all hungry, and were greeted with turnip greens, cornbread and the best pickled onions on the planet. The shrimp and fish I got were great as well. We will go again.

“Ate too much”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

It was everything I had heard and more. Sat in the booths facing the Lake and it was beautiful. Waitress was extremely helpful and friendly. Everyone there seems to really enjoy working there. Portions were almost more than I could handle but I made it. We will definitely be back.

“Lots of food & good”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

I really enjoyed the food although one serving is enough for two people; however my server asked why was I eating alone and I thought that was very inappropriate and unprofessional.

“Always Great, Always Consistent”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

We have visited Top O The River several times. It is always one of the best places to eat. We have had the pleasure of eating catfish, shrimp, crab claws, and crawfish tails. All were fantastic as well as the sides (hushpuppies, french fries, baked potatoes). The items they bring you (coleslaw, pickled onions, cornbread) before your meal arrives just teases you to the rest of the meal. This is a must eat!
