Diner Reviews
  • "This was a beauitful experience for a wedding anniversay"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "The restaurant was clean and busy. The lady standing at the entrance gave us a 'meh' feeling as we walked in. She stood at the entrance with her elbows on the pulpit with her head in her hands. Not very welcoming. The place was busy and loud. The seafood was outstanding with no scimping on potions. The price was decent for what you got."

  • "Top of the Bay restaurant used to be my favorite place to go for a birthday or romantic dinner. How things have changed. I made reservations using Open Table asking for a window seat for my birthday- instead we were seated at a table at the server's work area (where they put the cleared dishes etc - extremely noisy and unpleasant) even though there were other tables - not window tables but better places to sit-available. I ordered the ribeye with scallops, rare; I got a tough strip steak not ribeye, medium rare. Husband's sea scallops were not properly cooked-raw inside. Our server was nice enough but clumsy-part of my dinner slid off the plate onto the table- big mess- accidents happen. But its no longer worth driving 22 miles for dinner"

  • "The luncheon specials are a best buy. The baked scrod has been excellent on the four occasions I have tried it and has had excellent reviews from our guests. It has been flaky and not dried out. The clam zuppa in white broth featured cherry stone clams that were very tender. I look forward to the view of the bay from the glassed in terrace."

  • "I Booked A Table For Top Of The Bay. It Was To Celebrate My Wifes Birthday With 10 Guests. They Were Very Accommodating. I Was Able To Drop Off A Birthday Cake Ahead Of Time With No Problems. Once We Showed Up, I Didnt Have To Say A Thing.They Remembered Right Away And Wished My Wife A Happy Birthday. We Were Also Late Arrivals Due To Work So We Came Close To Closing Time. They Didnt Rush Us Out And Were Still Very accommodating. The Service, Food And Staff Were Excellent. To Date This Is The Best Resturaunt I Have Been To And Plan To Return Soon. I Couldnt Have Asked For Better."

  • "We happened to be visiting and found the Top of the Bay by chance, but it certainly worked out very well. First, the view is amazing. The food is excellent, with seafood being our choice. The service was friendly and attentive. The lighting was a little too bright for late evening dining, but overall still a memorable experience."

  • "Lovely lunch. Food was excellent. Consistently Good. Service was supreme!! Didn't miss a beat. Can't beat the view - that's for sure - what can this restaurant do to attract a slightly younger crowd? I know they are trying - complete with a "scan the QR code" promotion on the door - people are missing a gem - shouldn't just be a lunchtime bastion for the seniors....Love it."

  • "Top of the Bay Restaurant is a great place to eat. I've been there several times for lunch. There are great waterviews from the windows. The food has always been delicious especially their red clam chowder and clam cakes. The wait staff are always courteous and very attentive. I can't rate it high enough."

  • "first of all they put our reserved table of 6 right in front of the waitress kiosk....when asked to be moved the staff had a little bit of an attitude....we were moved to the very front of the restaurant and the waitress was a little"off"....she looked confused most of the time and didn't check on if we needed more bread, water, napkins, etc....it was my husband's birthday and i would have loved to order dessert....however she never asked if we wanted any and just brought the check....for the amount of money we spent on wine/food the experience was disappointing to say the least............."

  • "It was valentines day but they did not overbook and dinner was good and served in a timely fashion."
    Dined on 2/14/2013
  • "The food was very good but the service was AWFUL! We were sat in a room near the hostess station. Our waitress had many tables on the lower level in addition to our area. After we finished dinner we had to wait over 30 minutes before she came to us to ask about dessert. When she brought the dessert she also brought our bill. After another 20 minutes we asked the hostess if she could take our payment. We have dined here before but never had such poor service. They need to have more wait staff."
