My wife and I enjoyed dinner at Topper's last week...what a special place. Starting with a relaxing drink on the lawn as the sun was setting and then moving inside for dinner, the setting could not have been nicer. The dining room was elegant and the service was well beyond expectations. For... read more

This restaurant I would say is one of the top 5 in this country. When you walk in you feel like you've taken a step back in time. The decor is country charm with an European charm of moldings and original paintings from the original...the is also a great painting of Topper the family dog, hence the name Topper's!! The... More

While exploring this end of the island we stopped for lunch at this peaceful resort. Since it was restaurant week we ordered from this menu. Started with a creamy butternut squash soup which was excellent. This was followed by a delightful airline cut chicken breast over broccoli rabe. For dessert it was a delicious bread pudding with salted caramel ice... More

Last night we had our second great experience at TOPPER'S. We are pretty casual people, so we were very happy that the Deck was open (and very comfortable- the heat lamps are great and the chairs are perfect, not your standard outdoor seating by any stretch). One of the great things about eating on the Deck is that your can... More

My husband and I dined at Toppers for my birthday. Everything was classical & perfect from the start ~ Chef Kyle left a birthday card at our table for us, our server Doyd was as kind as can be and the food was phenomenal. All in all it was a classic dining experience and wonderful meal.

Everything in their menu is mouth watering, no matter which meal you are there for. My fiance and I recently had our wedding tasting and were able to try a fair amount of their catering menu.

Went there for Sunday brunch with friends. The 30-minute or so drive from town was so lovely and peaceful, and when we arrived, it felt like we'd reached paradise. The Wauwinet Inn is just very elegant and gracious-looking (justifying the high price I suppose), and the view out back of the harbor is just lovely. What a great place to... More

Not many miles to reach Toppers, but the road is narrow and winding, so it takes longer to get there than you might assume. However, thats unimportant when your on the island, because the views along the way are wonderful, and the meals are wonderful and beautifully presented, the views are very good too.

Toppers is a wonderful restaurant. It is located in the Wauwinet Inn by the Sea. Note unless you are staying at the Inn, it is at least a 30 minute drive from downtown Nantucket. However, it is worth the drive! The food was incredible. We stayed at The White Elephant, a sister property, where there is a water taxi running... More
