Thankfully, it turned out to look much worse than it actually was. The Tuscaloosa News’ Cecil Hurt shared this update from scene.
Good news from Archibald's. Fire was limited to top of the pit. Smoke inside but they are serving from the truck. Structure & family OK. pic.twitter.com/JODPAGr1yK

I think we can all breathe a huge sigh of relief that the institution will live on.
