There was a large golf group who were so loud they absolutely ruined our time. We and others in the restaurant complained to no avail. We couldn’t even have a conversation between us. These men were totally inconsiderate of others. The manager should have moved them or us to the front room.

We went there for Mother's Day. We have been many times in the past, so we were a bit sad when we got there to find they had a fixed menu for Mother's day. I was unable to get a platter of fried clams, which is a Mother's day tradition for us. We were there at 6:30 the restaurant was packed. We all got a cup of chowder and you could tell that it wasn't quite done as the potatoes were hard.
Everything else was good.

Top of the Bay is a beautiful restaurant with a great view. Some of the food was excellent -- the stuffed quahogs were among the best I've had. Sadly, some dishes seem like they haven't been updated or improved since the mid-80s, and some things just fell flat due to poor execution. The broiled scallops were perfectly cooked, but the wine hadn't been fully cooked out of the sauce they were sitting in. The Brussels sprouts and baked potato were undercooked. Overall, it's disappointing that the food is so mediocre, because this place has the potential to be a gem.

We had a great time on Mother's day. It was the perfect place to get together as a family and enjoy each other's company. The staff was so attentive to everyone needs. Yes I'm going to let everyone I know about our great time at top of the bay.

Went for the weekday lunch special. Great value for $11.99. Waitress was spot on-came with coffee and continually checked on us. Enjoyable experience.

Disappointed. My husband ordered the fishermen's platter, the batter was much too thick and on the bland size. He is not a picky person, and barely touched his food. The sauce on my pasta was super bland and watery.
Our waitress was not the most attentative. Overall, it was disappointing and not what we had in mind for our anniversary dinner. Probably will not return.

Food came out over cooked for one guest and cold for others. Very disappointed as I frequently dine there. The lamb was dried out for another guest. They took away price of one dinner and $30 off bill. At that point I didn't care and it wasn't what I was looking for. Will be a long time before I go back hete

Food was excellent service was great but the parking lot is kind of dangerous to walk in with all the ruts.

A couple of the items I wanted were sold out. Lobster Ravioli was excellent.

I stopped in for lunch and had the fish and chips special. The clam chowder was excellent and the fish was outstanding. In addition to great food, the view of the bay is amazing. I highly recommend Top of the Bay.

There food wasn't that good. My friend ordered his steak medium well and it came rare. Ordered a beer on draft and it was flat. I probably won't go back.

The food was excellent. Our waiter, Nick, was very professional. We enjoy our evening very much. As it was our first time at the restaurant I would most definitely recommend my friends and family to them.

Although the walk up the driveway leaves something to be desired, dodging potholes, slippery walking, the atmosphere inside is wonderful and the food is great. The scenic view is beautiful also.
