Atmosphere and the service were way above average. Antoine went out of his way to make sure everything was to our liking. Steamers were local and sweet. Lobster bisques was excellent. My girlfriend had lasagna. Seem to disappear off her plate very quickly. Top Side had the whole package. We had a really nice time and ate well.

We were starving after a long drive and were tempted in to this place due to the sidewalk menu. The place was very comfortable and our waitress was extremely pleasant and helpful. She had a lot of information for our questions. Her service was perfect and the food we ordered wonderful. I had the steamers and then the special that... More

Got into town later than expected and did not want a huge meal. I had the lobster roll which was great and my husband had a nice clam chowder. Our waitress, Courtney, knew instinctively what we were looking for and was very pleasant and accommodating.

Called a day ahead to make a reservation for Mother's Day Brunch which was advertised as 11 am-3 pm on the website. Got there for 2 pm and found brunch was ending at 2 on Mother's Day. We were only given the option of ordering from a very limited dinner menu with much higher prices despite asking for a reservation... More

Stopped here for our pre-race diner. We really just wanted a hamburger and beer and the Top Side was perfect. Clam Chowder was good to start and the burger was great.

Stopped in here on a chilly May evening for my birthday. As soon as I walked in, the bartender greeted me and let me pick where I wanted to sit. For a Friday night, it wasn't too busy, which we enjoyed. Our waitress was fabulous. She knew when to approach and when to let us just enjoy ourselves, food and... More
