I have been to Tin Top in Tuscaloosa 3 times, and each experience was the same. The food is very tasty, although not exactly fine dining (lots of fried seafood, baked oysters etc.) Normally I like that type of food and, again, the food here is not the problem.
The problem is when you take a very good beachside restaurant from South Alabama and plant a sister restaurant in a strip center development in Tuscaloosa, AL, you lose the whole flavor of what makes the original a good place. Add on top that you are still charging beachside prices and you end up with a mediocre dining experience with good seafood that is WAY overpriced for this area. If you want good fried seafood in Tuscaloosa go to Wintzell's instead. The food as about the same, but at least you get a view of the river instead of a parking lot and the cost will be between a third to half lower.
