Toppers is Special
Always an unforgettable experience. Expensive so not for every day, but for an occasion can not be beat.

Best restaurant on the island
One of the best dining experiences I've had in a while. Impeccable service, amazing bread basket, great wine list. I had the duck, which was cooked perfectly. The highlight was my boyfriends short rib. Apparently, it's a well known must have and I can see why...AMAZING!! The sauce that accompanies it is so delicious, I actually put some on my duck! The food was so good we came for lunch the next day, which was equally as delicious, albeit a bit pricey, but worth it. If you're on Nantucket, make sure you get out to Toppers and the Wauwinet. They have a lovely outdoor seating area to enjoy a cocktail before and after the meal.

Every visit is one to remember
Some places you just go back to again and again. This place is remarkable in all the best ways.

Beautiful setting, very good food
While the food and service at Topper's were both very good, the best part was the scenic view of the bay. I definitely recommend going for sunset if possible to get the most out of the setting and to really make it worth the sizeable tab.

The evening started out with
The evening started out with the disappointing news that they had ended their special Restaurant Week menu two days early because they had a big wedding. We decided to stay anyway and not make a fuss about it. We were rewarded with a wonderful meal and excellent service in the most lovely setting.

Lives up to its Reputation!
We had read about how wonderful this restaurant was and it completely lived up to our expectations. Not only is the food and wine list excellent, the staff are professional, friendly and most attentive. We will definitely return to this restaurant and recommend it highly to all looking for fine dining in a beautiful atmosphere.

We ate at Topper's last summer and this was our first time dining there this season. Food and presentation were amazing, but also really appreciate the excellent service! Not a bargain, but if you're looking for fine food and service you'll find it there...

3 Dining Worlds in 1
Toppers, the original indoor restaurant is outstanding in every way. The food, the blend of old and new surroundings and step away from your romantic dinner to see the sunset on the grass overlooking Nantucket Harbor. Amazing!
The deck, located off the Restaurant and next to the bar, provides the casual space I need now that I have 3 young grandchildren. Same food plus a deck menu that allows kids to share a hamburger that is out of this world.
For the most impromptu dining just find Mitch at the bar and he will make you feel so welcome and relaxed. Reminds me of Cheers but with style and great food!
Yes, I live in the neighborhood! Yes, I love this place! Yes, I am a fan!

Quality you can expect...
As expected, Topper's didn't dissapoint. My family went for my wife's birthday. The food was excellent. The service was attentive and accomodated special dietary needs (gluten free options). Not much more I can say. Pure quality. - not something you get with high end restaurants in Nantucket.

Wow at the Wauwinet!!
Topper's at the Wauwinet did not disappoint! While dining on the deck one may choose items on either the "Deck Menu" or the inside "Dinner Menu", thus allowing one a multitude of culinary choices. We had a tasty Wauwinet-ini as the sun lit the sky in purplish pink hues. Then we enjoyed hamachi "pizzas" for delectable and artistic appetizers. This was followed by an entree that was so delicious...a duo of tender short ribs and perfectly cooked sirloin slices. Dessert was also a treat with a beautifully presented rendition of peach Melba. The portions of the beef entree and dessert were small but they were very delicious. We will certainly return again for a special occasion meal as the service, ambiance and food are first-rate!

Toppers still is tops
everything was wonderful. we made a reservation for a table and later reserved the launch ride to the restaurant. we were thereafter labeled "boat people" and provided a limited prix fix menu. everything was wonderful and delicious, it would have been nice to know in advance about the restrictions.

The food was outstanding.
The food was outstanding. You don't need to go to France. You have right there. And the wine list was fantastic as well

We celebrate our anniversary
We celebrate our anniversary at Toppers every year for the past five years. We ordered two lobster dishes. However, it was not edible. It was translucent. I heard another table complaining as well. While we did not say anything to the staff, I think that the chef should cook the lobster a little more. Do not mind paying for a great meal but to pay $90 for each plate and not enjoy it was not good

A classic with an edge
Beautiful s'éteignent and a menu including fresh local ingrédients with creativity

Life with the 1 per centers
Everything about the dinner and evening were outstanding. We had the tasting menu and loved everything.

Toppers is a cut above. The service, cuisine, artful, visual presentation of the cuisine AND the views are all OUTSTANDING. Can't wait to return.

PRICEY BUT DELICIOUS
Food was great but not "over-the-top"... ordered double the soft-shell crab but only was served one - waitress noticed this, offered to correct which we declined, but never took it off our bill. Everyone enjoyed their meal but nothing stood out as THE BEST!
Disappointed as we usually had great meals here. However, must say we did not go away hungry as the chef sent out numerous samplers to try of which the sampler corn chowder was wonderful. You should put it on the menu.

Fabulous evening-like a Homecoming
Topper's never disappoints. The staff remember everything about you from the prior year-cocktail and food preferences. I mean everything. The drinks were perfectly prepared, the food was delicious, all per usual. The wine list is encyclopedic, you can't go wrong. This restaurant is one in a million. We'll be back this season, and will lament the date of closing, as always.

Fine Dining at its best!
Having dined at The White Elephant for 10+ years I can honestly say this restaurant NEVER disappoints. The service and food is the best one can expect. The menu changes from year to year and the chef manages to exceed my expectations again and again. Ambiance galore, great place for a birthday, engagement family celebration or just for a special dinner. Don't make a mistake, go to the White Elephant you will not be disappointed.

Try the lobster rolls. Can't get any better than these!

Food was very good but if one has food allergies (GF/DF) this is not the place for you.

A Special Place
Excellent food and service make Topper's the place to go for a special occasion.

Fantastic service and food!
Fantastic service and food! Only downside is that it's fairly quiet this time of year (September) because it's the off-season, so for a pair of New Yorkers the atmosphere seemed too quiet. But very impressive otherwise!!

Best of Nantucket
Toppers is one of the best restaurants on Nantucket. The food, ambience, and service are all five stars. The dining room, while full, never feels "crowded", and the wait staff makes sure that each table feels like it is the most important. If you can, splurge on the caviar, a special treat that is beautifully presented, and tastes wonderful. Dinner here is always a special occasion!
We never tire of dining at Toppers at the Wauwinet . . . a gorgeous and delicious ending to a 15 year anniversary stay.

Toppers is located in one
Toppers is located in one of Nantucket's most beautiful hotel / resort. Fabulous grounds and spectacular views. Service is very polished and attentive. It might even be considered over the top but, enjoyable none-the-less.
Food was terrific but the menu was a bit limited--could use a broader selection of fish entrees--seeing its on an island.
I had short ribs which were outstanding. They were prepared sous-vide and were absolutely the most tender and succulent ribs I've ever had.
Very attentive staff. Impressive wine list. As expected, prices were very high.

Over the top!
Four of us went to Toppers' for restaurant week. We could not have been more pleased. The smiling waitstaff was courteous and attentive. The sommeliers' suggestion was spot on. The food abundant and delicious. Dessert divine. At $45. a head this is the best deal I've had and highly recommend the experience.

Spectacular island location
You hear a lot about Topper's sunset views, which were indeed spectacular even on a cool October night. However, the food was even more amazing. Every bite was layered with different flavors in the creatively combined dishes, making you wish it would linger longer. The kind of restaurant where you want the chef bring you anything- it will all be delicious. The service was impeccable and gracious. We will return!
