    A beautiful room and extensive drink menu and a varied assortment of menu items including a price fix menu. The dishes were flavorful and abundant with a great degree of flavorful elements within the dishes. The tables were comfortable and casually elegant with a beautiful fire in the fireplace. Highly recommend the crab cakes, green salad and the halibut.

    Made reservations weeks ago. Timed dining with sunset. Due to wedding tent prep for A Saturday wedding unable to access pier and sunset. Had arrived early to watch sunset and boats. Directed to bar. Difficulty deciphering menu-not familiar many of names. Tarte flambé with bacon excellent. More than enough for 2. Halibut bland. Black pepper pasta with lobster excellent. Pumpkin dessert superb

    Topper's is the very best restaurant in Nantucket. We go here every year and it never disappoints. I had the vegetarian tasting menu and my husband had the regular tasting menu. Every dish was superb and just delicious. The service is perfect and the decor is elegant and beautiful. A really wonderful night out and a real treat. We can't wait to go back next year when we return to Nantucket!

    We had an outstanding experience dining at Topper’s for our anniversary. Our waiter, Jerome and the Sommelier, Dennis were professional, knowledgeable, and a true delight! We both had the 7-course degustation (one regular and one vegetarian) and it was phenomenal from start to finish! We will be back for sure!

    Excellent quiet dinner in this beautiful tasty restaurant. I had an incredible and huge beet and endive salad as an appetizer could have been a meal all by itself. The salmon was delicious and perfectly cooked. One of the party had an excellent steak, perfectly cooked. The trumpet pasta dish did not impress however. Service was exceptional

    This is my sixth time visiting Nantucket, and Topper’s is by far the best restaurant I’ve ever dined at on the island. The staff was incredible, the most professional and knowledgeable waitstaff I’ve encountered in years. Every single dish was outstanding. The chef obviously knows what they’re doing. This will be my “go to” restaurant from now on when I visit the island.

    For my first dinner on Nantucket, the bar was set incredibly high. We were greeted with smiles and made to feel welcome. Our table location was perfect for a dinner for two. The meal was exceptional. Local produce and tremendous preparation made the meal excellent. To top it off, we asked our server to use the phone to call for a taxi, and the manger came to our table to offer the use of the resort shuttle to get back to town. All things considered, we’ve decided to make a return trip to Topper’s a priority when back on the island.

    Be sure to arrive early to view across the water especially at sunset. Everyone was kind and attentive. The food was superb! I had the halibut entree served with a bed of succotash. It was so fresh and delicious. My dinner partner shared her tomato and cucumber salad which was very good. This was our favorite meal on the island.
