Polite but slow service. Decent food. Unfortunate (loud and self-absorbed) clientele. Nice outdoor seating but be prepared for many miserable betrothed couples passing through on venue visits. *Please don't make a Tom Collins with sour mix. Ever.

We stayed at the Wauwinet, which is a bit far from town, so we ate at Topper's, which is inside the hotel. Nice setting, great service, the food was very good. This being Nantucket, everything is a bit overpriced, including wine. But this is a place where you can at least feel like it was worth it.

I went here with a large group during Daffodil Weekend. The service was good. Even though we had many kids for lunch, they helped out and accommodated us. My beet salad was delicious! My husband's lobster roll and fries was hearty and flavorful. The wine was also great. Unfortunately, the beet salad was $17! And a cup of clam chowder... More

Our extended family took the water taxi for a birthday lunch at Toppers -- a spectacular experience in August weather. The hotel and restaurant are beautifully situated near the water, but the restaurant itself has mostly garden views. We ate outdoors under a tent-like structure, which would have provided great rain protection if that were needed, but instead created an... More

I'm way behind on writing this review. We dined at Topper's a few months ago and for the price, it was disappointing. The food was good, but service was extremely slow. It was very pricey and we expected more for what we paid. The setting is beautiful and if you are there at sunset, it is awesome! They also have... More

After a glass of white wine, the waiter suggested a half bottle if we were planning on two more glasses. When the bill came the HALF bottle was $400 !!!!!!!!!!!! Tried to explain to waiter that $400 was a bit excessive, but he just said "You didn't ask". Went to the manager after paying the bill, and he just said... More

Everything about the night was absolutely perfect. We had a private room. Every dish served was wonderful. The extensive wine list was so amazing, that I simply requested the cellar master's assistance and that was a good move. The staff was extremely knowledgeable, pleasant and professional. We were escorted from the dock by cordial members of the staff, through an... More

Bottom line: Worst restaurant at the highest price! We selected the $115/person tasting menu (6 courses including dessert). It became so awful that we were laughing hysterically to ease the pain of eating tasteless food and spending a fortune doing so. The only item that truly had any taste was the balsamic sorbet which was disgusting! Yes, I said BALSAMIC... More

We have been here many times and always look forward to a great meal! Once again we were not disappointed from the fresh greens to the tasty Wagyu burger.

Absolutely stunning setting near harbor bay and Coatue. We drive there but during the season one can take a boat ride from downtown. Service is stylish and impeccable. The food is terrific and there is an extensive wine list. Be sure to walk the grounds before and after your meal.
