Great service, Good selection of entrees. Full bar and beer selections. Awesome steaks. Nice baked scallops. Their famous crab rolls looked like a tennis ball size hushpuppy but was too "bready" for me. We were there at dark, but I'm sure the waterfront view would...More

When I visit RI, the Top of the Bay is on my "to do" list. Been there twice this trip. The lobster rolls are incredible. Add a cup of great chowder and a couple of clamcakes and you have the best meal in the state.

The view was great, the service was good..My husbands meal was good..but sadly my meal wasn't very good. We went for lunch, I had a very watery clam chowder and the buffalo chicken wrap, which I thought the chicken did not taste good at all....More

Just had dinner here for the first time....beautiful view of the bay. The white chowder is the best I have ever had!! Generous portions and excellent service. My only complaint is the restaurant is very noisy...but would go back even just for the chowder..

I was hungry for New England sea food & family took me to 'Top of The Bay'. Clam chowder was excellent. Salmon & bang-bang shrimp plus dinner roles were to 'die for'. Service was good but a little slow.

Most important is you can call 30 minutes ahead! We did on a busy Friday night. We only had to wait a few minutes for our table. Try to request a window seat facing the water. It's a beautiful view. The menu has something for...More

Our server was wonderful, and I mentioned how i had come to the restaurant when it was previously Cherry Stones. She was a very kind girl, with short, brown hair, and she was great. Our chowder and clam cakes were good, but the clam cakes...More
