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.
The place is cozy with a great view. Bright and cheery inside. Menu is perfect and the staff makes you feel right at home. Highly recommend Top of the Bay
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.
As always a great dining experience. Top of the bay never is less than awesome
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.
Waitress was great and the food was also. For that true seafood feel and taste. Quality stands up over all of these years!
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.
First time at this restaurant and it was great, the view is amazing and the people are great. Definitely going back
We came here for Valentine's Day dinner. Nick was our server. We couldn't ask for better service. Everything was delicious. Prices are very reasonable. We can't wait to return!
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.
First visit based on a recommendation. Great experience. Food was very good with generous portions. Will be back.
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.
The food was amazing as always, service was top notch definitely recommend this place to family and friends!
Our waitress was wonderful.... very personable and delightful. We had the lunch specials. The quality of the food was fantastic and the amount was more than expected. I will go again sometime soon.
Go for the food, which was excellent and had a 3-course fixed price option that was a great value. But be sure to stop in the bar and have a drink with Heidi, she has worked at the restaurant for 20 years and was a hoot to hang out with.
Enjoyed the $19 special. Food was very good. Service was excellent. Felt we received great value for the price. Enjoyed sitting by a window. Table was attractively set.
Don't make the same mistake I did - this place is right across from Iggy's and no one orders the fried seafood platters - and it shows. Mine was soggy and gross. Had Clams Casino as an app, which was pretty good. Liked the beer selection, wait staff was friendly and helpful. Not really the A+ experience it was talked up to be, though.
This restaurant deserves a FIVE star rating -- and we are honored to give it such. The food our OUTSTANDING, and the service SUPERIOR -- we cam back TWICE in three days!!
If I had to say one small encouragement by way of improvement needs, it would be to update the bathroom a bit.
Other than that -- WELL DONE!
We got seated right away. The waiter came over and was very professional and friendly.
Our orders were taken and we received our drinks and appitizers right away. Our food came out hot and was very very good. We had our waiter before and enjoy him waiting on us, very nice.
I selected this restaurant via the mobile app due to it's proximity to the bay since I wanted an ocean view for my birthday lunch. I also needed a restaurant that opened at noon since we had to be back to Connecticut by 4:30. The view was great, however it was a bit warm by the windows (the heat of the sun was magnified). We were joined by friends from Long Island who loved the vast food selection. I had the Hawaiian Chicken - the presentation was fantastic and it tasted just as good. Following my husband's request, the staff brought out a fantastic piece of chocolate cake for my birthday. I really enjoyed this location and will try it again when we're back in Rhode Island.
We brought friends from out of town for a lobster dinner and were told that there was no lobster. Embarrassing and awkward for us. Lobster roll was offered and it really was lobster salad. Not happy at all
We had lunch one Friday for my husband's birthday. This is a nice little restaurant with pretty views (I requested window table), all three of us enjoyed our meals. Two had fish & chips. Huge portions, nice white fish, not greasy at all! Great fries! My baked cod was also very good.
While we didn't have dessert, my husband and I each had a drink, and I was surprised how reasonable the bill was for all we had.
This is not Luciano's, Trattoria Romana or Federal Hill; it is however, a very nice restaurant with great views of the bay, good food, good service and good prices.
The corner table gave our group a wonderful view. Many of the group (7) had not been to the TotB before. They were impressed with the food, ambience, and wonderful cheerful service.
This was the first time we were there and the food and the service was excellent. We are not from the area, but when we go back up that way, we would make sure we good there.
Good lobster roll but better on last visit.. The roll seemed stale
Multiple visits, but first in a long time with our 3 young children, 4 and under. Wait staff very attentive to their needs. Food was, as always, excellent. Great portions, not a long wait between appetizers and entrées. The views of the bay are always a nice draw.
The seafood platter was covered in a tasteless crumb coating. The prices charged for sub-par food was ridiculous. About the only thing going for this place is the view. Avoid eating here if you like to actually taste the food you're paying for.
The food is always delicious and never greasy. The staff is always courteous to our children.
There's good parking! Entering the restaurant, staff was cordial, and our waiter Shane was exceptional. He was very helpful with the menu, and our food was absolutely heavenly! I would recommend this place to everyone. The prices are affordable, and the portions are just right. I love this place! We will be back soon
The meal could have been serve warmer. Maybe hot plates would help. I know we had a large get together . But with a little more planning , dinner could have been serve hot. I will recommend this restaurant but not for a large (15) group.
Our server was excellent. Very helpful and patient!
Our group was in Rhode Island for a Monday event. We were staying in Warick at Crown Plaza wanted a seafood restaurant not far from our hotel. This restaurant fit the bill. Beautiful view, attentive wait staff, and excellent fresh New England seafood. And only 5-10 minutes from the hotel.
Went for Easter dinner,it was great. We have been here many times. Staff isgreat and friendly. The stuffie is the best.
