A great excursion topped off with good food!

Took the boat from the White Elephant hotel and had lunch at this place. Great food, decent value for the money. Try the lobster roll!

Delicious (all be it pricey) breakfast and lunch. Best part was ordering lunch on a lunge chair on the grass.

Nothing like a little rap music for breakfast. There is no one in charge of Topper'/s Deck. Restaurant. And IF there is, then he / she is fast asleep at the switch. Wait staff try their best but given no direction how can you expect a "class act" in what purports to be THE best hotel on the Isle? I... More

On top of good food and great wine, the patio setting at Topper's makes for a truly memorable experience.

We were married at the Wauwinet on June 27th, 2015. Our morning wedding was perfect. The ceremony was beautiful, with absolutely stunning views all around. We wanted a private and peaceful ceremony and got exactly what we wanted. After the ceremony proceedings, we made our way to Topper's restuarant with our wedding party for a celebatory breakfast. Jen Mandell, the manager,... More

My husband and I dined at Topper's and had a fantastic meal. We love to visit every year, and as usual the service and food were superb. The highlights were the foie and the pork. The sommelier (Hieu I think??) gave us some great choices and we really loved our wine. Amazing experience and can't wait until next time!!!

A couple we had just met persuaded us to cancel our reservations at the Summer House and join them at Toppers. I wish we hadn't. There were four in our party plus the couple so we had a table for six outside on the patio. The setting is outstanding. I wish I could say the same for the food and... More

I have dined in the best restaurants all over the world and this place likes to think they are in that category. What a snobatorium. Food average disguised with presentation. If you like small portions and high prices this is the place for you. Wait staff snobby and inattentive.

The view and property are beautiful. That's where the positive side of this review ends. I have never been to a restaurant that charges this premium of price for such sub par, tasteless food.
