Topper's.....still tops after all these years.

Great place to have lunch if you like fresh tuna. Or for something simple....small Toppers salad with grilled chicken.

Toppers has a great happy hour...buy one get one free. Had drinks and appetizer and all was good. Nice place to stop if in area but I don't think I would seek it out or go out of my way with all the other bars/restaurants in area. Won't go wrong if you do stop, though.

Love the free rum tastings. Toppers Mocha Rum was excellent. The bartenders were very attentive. The stuffed mushrooms were delicious. Great for snacks and lunch!

Great surprise! My friends and I were not staying in Simpson Bay but went to check it out one day. Were hungry and stumbled upon Topper's. Started out slow, ordered food. Then Topper himself came by and that's when the real party started. What a crazy guy! He was endless entertainment, and we really enjoyed his company, as well as... More

Toppers is busy and very popular with tourists, so they must be doing something right! The menu is N. American and the service is efficient in a N. American way (not that that's a bad thing!). The prices are reasonable, especially the wine list and the food is not bad, but it's not great or memorable. I only gave 3... More

Reasonably priced entrees that can please everyone. Great burgers, delicious prime rib, great lobster night, and outstanding handcrafted flavored rums. There is usually a theme for the night, so check it out. It may be a featured entree or a featured entertainment. Either way, check it out!

We stayed in the area January 16-23rd, 2016 and ate at Toppers a few times, at different meal times. The food was good, the staff were excellent, always moving, always trying to help customers. Wouldn't hesitate to go back for any meal.

A bar with a great view of the beach and sea. Fairly busy, mostly with people staying at the Flamingo resort. Food is nothing special. They have daily deals such as a breakfast buffet, taco bar etc. On Thurs nights they have a limited menu of pricier items because there is a free variety show.

Heard about the prime rib special so decided to give it a try. We were exceptionally pleased with our meals but disappointed that we had to contend with smokers while we ate. Politely told the couple next to us that their smoke was bothersome. They went back to their table and rudely lite up another cigarette. Grrrr

By far this is our favorite place on the island. The food is good. There is always something going on entertainment wise. But I can't say enough about the servers. Some of them we see year after year and become like family. The location is very convenient for us, on our beach, practically out side our door. Can't wait to... More
