Stopped in in our way to see the Christmas lights at Noccalula Falls. Our party of 11 was immediately seated, a rarity at any establishment. Our server was super efficient and sweet. As always the cornbread, onions, and slaw brought before our meals was stellar. We ordered popcorn shrimp and catfish. The portions were large and the food was delicious.... More

Went with high hopes as I've heard a lot of good things about this place. Those folks must have been mistaken. The catfish wasn't bad but the fried shrimp was nothing special. Baked potatoes weren't quite cooked completely. But what really irked me was how long it took to get the food. When my wife and I ordered our food,... More

This place is the S**T! Enormous portions. Great fried fish and shrimps. Sides are awesome too. NOt a fancy restaurant but definitely a destination. Worth the drive from Atlanta.

Top O The River is an experience. Not a fancy restaurant, but the food is great and always consistent. Our favorites are the slaw and cornbread that everyone starts their meal with, and the fried pickles are the best you'll find! Lots of food...you will leave very full!

Went after seeing a sign on the road and then a friends recommendation. We wanted A light meal so we split a $14 entree. We had leftovers. The food was great service was good and fast and the portions more than adequate. Highly recommend.

Love the food whether we eat there or carry out but it is so much better when you eat in and are able to much on homemade corn bread and sweet pickled onions before they serve the meal. Excellent food and service but you may have to wait in line awhile.

We went eary on a Wednesday night. Greeted and seated immediately. The service was fast and friendly. The catfish was as good as farm raised catfish can get. This was our fourth visit to this restaurant and they have all been very good experiences. The next time we are in Anniston we will eat there.

We were really hungry and the food they bring you before you order was so good!!! Hush puppies, turnip greens, slaw and pickled onions! I ordered the catfish grilled and a potato and it was good but the fish was swimming in melted butter which I didn't need. My daughter and husband ordered the fried catfish special and it was...
