Lunch – The Tin Top Restaurant and Oyster Bar is well loved by locals. Located off the beaten path, it’s a quick drive to the sleepy fishing community of Bon Secour. Just outside of Foley, it serves the freshest-of-the-fresh seafood, straight from the docks of the village. With oysters mentioned in the restaurant name, you’ll definitely want to try a dozen or two. The Dirty Dozen is a good start. These baked oysters are topped with house Tasso ham, cream sauce and parmesan cheese.
