“Tuna poor, fried shrimp good”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Thursday afternoon 6:30, I ordered ahi tuna and spouse ordered fried shrimp. Shrimp was ok, the tuna was refrigerator cold and Vince Hunter (manager, assistant manager?) argued we did not know how to order tuna.

James our waiter gave good service.

“Lobster bisque ..AMAZING!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

The lobster bisque is so delicious, my husband had a bite of mine and said he would order that next time he came.. The side Caesar salad was awesome and fresh! And the chocolate bread pudding was sooo good! Our waiter Josh was great and very helpful with my decision making.. I told him I had never been there before and he gave great suggestions!

“Green fried tomatoes”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

The fried green tomatoes , and the fresh green beans where delicious. Please do try the bread pudding , any favorite. My Aunt had the Steak it was juicy.. The side salad was delicious the serving size is great. The only bad thing I would say that I got 2 fried tomates, maybe 3 or 4 slices because they were small.

“Better than we expected”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

We were a group of six who showed up without reservations. Our group ordered the Shrimp and Grits, the Cajun Shrimp Pasta and the Surf and Turf. Everything was delicious. And the server - Andrew - was wonderful.

Will definitely recommend.

“Tintop is top of the line”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

The food at Tintop is terrific! The restaurant is now located in downtown Tuscaloosa at 2330 4th Street. The food is incredible...the freshest of seafood and steaks. My personal favorite is an appetizer of seafood stuffed mushrooms. The stuffing is delectable...and can be added to any entree on the menu as well. One more tip...ask for a table upstairs...where it's a little quieter and much more intimate.
