One of the better pizza places in town. The food is inconsistent and the staffing is forgetful. The pizza is best eaten on site because the crust gets really rubbery when it cools but we still go

Food is delicious and the atmosphere is completely unique. Burgers are incredible. This is a must-go place in town. Be sure to pick a nice day because a lot of seats are outdoors but indoor seats are available for hot/rainy days.

Great food, amazing service! The menu offers hot subs, salads, and chilli, as well as kids meals. The meat is steamed and the bread is toasted for the best flavor. The quality is superior to Subway. I've never waited longer than five minutes for my order. It's well worth a visit!

We have had guests at our Fairfield Hill Cottage coment how excellent the food was and how much they enjoyed the atmosphere and the food....it took them about 20 mins from our farm ...highly recomended We finally got to try the Tin Top ourselves for my birthday lunch. The sautéed crab claws were to die for and the sauce dipped up with the bread YUM the raw oysters were great and the place has a real ole’ Alabama vibe. Be sure to have a couple cocktails on the porch and soak up LA ( lower Alabama)

It is an up and coming amusement park that has great potential. The rides are fun and though it is not comparable to larger theme parks, the atmosphere fits it perfectly. It is still in the process of completion, but it is an excellent family location and filled with stores and restaurants and has room to grow. Military discounts are a plus.
