I love this place! The location is 4th floor rooftop overlooking the Ocean, the atmosphere(inside or outside) is very cozy Tuscan style. Food is some of the best on island-from appetizers to main dishes. Food for tastes but in no way ordinary. Joe-the owner-is gracious and a true gentleman. You won't be disappointed.

Even though we arrived just 20 minutes before closing on Christmas Eve the Rooftop didn't fail to give us ana amazing meal. Although all they had was outdoor seating available on a chilly evening they made sure to seat us under a heater and even gave me a soft fuzzy blanket in case I needed it. The food is fresh... More

Great location and view. This is a cold December day and this place seems to be oriented toward patio dining as 3/4 of the seating is outdoors. However it does not explain the food which was well below a Ruby Tuesday or any other mid priced restaurant. It has a very good reputation locally and only hope (for their sake)... More

We visited The Rooftop for sunset. Its a beautiful setting with a great view. The service was superb. We had cocktails and appetizers. Both excellent. But the service surpassed both the view and the food. Our waiter was friendly, helpful and went waaaay above and beyond to the point of bringing me a blanket, as well as a towel and... More

My wife and I stumbled onto this place quite by accident and only because we stay at the Seagate Inn (also a great choice) just down the street on Beachview. Its on the fifth floor and with little signage it could easily be overlooked. The venue is the best on SSI and a perfect place for sunset watching or just... More

Went at sunset and the view was amazing! Had a glass of Pinot Noir, the ahi tuna appetizer, and the bread pudding and was extremely satisfied with it all! The service was absolutely wonderful! Stevie is the best! Love this place and will return!!

This place was a disappointment. We wanted a place with a view of the ocean. We kept checking the hours on here and it continually said closed. We finally called and they said they were open. They were a bit hard to find, but we made it. Our sever was not knowledgable about the wines they had to offer, did... More

My fiancé and I come here every Sunday for brunch. We love the atmosphere and the food is always amazing. Friendly waitresses who are always happy to assist! Great prices and you cannot beat the view. We will definitely be keeping up the Sunday brunch tradition! We cannot recommend the Rooftop enough!

Our group of 9 had a reservation for a round table at least a week in advance; however, the request could not be granted when we arrived. After a long delay, our entrees were delivered, but everyone's was lukewarm. Previous visits were better, but the most recent was a disappointment. BTW, 21% gratuity is added for groups, not 18% as... More
