This place will never be a first choice with all of the great restaurants around to choose form...Menu isn't all that appealing. the interior of restaurant is dark and in need up updating. Deck could be fun though

We stopped here to have a snack and a glass of wine. On the recommendation of Elizabeth our lovely bartender, we opted for the bacon wrapped scallops and some red wine. Both a hit. Great atmosphere and we spent a bit of time chatting with Elizabeth who was delightful. Very low key pub and our app and wine were delicious.... More

Comfortable seating and atmosphere; nice menu; good service; tasty, well-prepared food. Very pleasant dining experience.

My adult family of 4 had a fabulous experience at Topside Grill yesterday! We were warmly greeted by the staff; all of us dined on traditional turkey with colorful fixings! Our dinners were lovely visual presentations! Post dinner, we all enjoyed delectable desserts, with plates set on pretty doilies, as well as flavorful coffee. Our server Cortney was perfect! We...

We were seated right away and our server was super sweet, but after checking out the menu, we decided to only have appetizers. My husband had the chowder, which he said was very good, but my shrimp cocktail was way overcooked and not very good.

Great service from Sarah. Had calamari appetizer, fish & chips and the spicy pasta seafood dish. The pasta was good.... fish and chips were cooked perfectly and the bread was to die for!!! Strangely, the bread was my favorite part... would probably go back.
