We were directed here after a college visit. It was very hot so we ate inside. I imagine it would be nice to eat out on the porch if the weather was nice. The food was average and really nothing to complain about. Our server was nice but horrible about coming by to check on us. We sat with unfilled... More

The shrimp and grits was great. This is what I ordered both times we went when in town for work. The view was good from the outside seating but very very hot and our ceiling fan wasn't working (June visit). When we returned in July we asked to sit inside. The spinach dip appetizer was probably the best spinach dip... More

We expected pub fare and actually had a truly delicious meal from salad to beef tenderloin to outstanding beer on a special at only $3.00 per glass. We couldn't have asked for a more attentive and upbeat waitress and the views of the sunset were delightful.

In town to pick up daughter from camp, we were totally unaware of good places to eat. This place hits all the buttons- great view from the porch, food was delicious, and the brew their own beer! (And whiskey) We started with the pimento cheese and pulled pork flatbread. As good as it sounds. Then a flight of beer, only... More

I've been to ToPo several times, only ever for lunch, though. The service is always top notch and the food is good. Standard offering for the most part. I really like their beer battered fries. I've had a sandwich and a couple of salads (once I went only for the fries!) and everything has always been good but nothing special.... More

Delicious dinner in a lively restaurant with great service. The menu was a particularly great surprise; plenty of excellent options and many locally-sourced items. Nice evening!

We were celebrating our son's MBA at this restaurant/bar the evening to the graduation. We were a party of 7 and had made reservations ahead of time and were seated right away. They brew both beer and bourbon here. Many of us tried the clear house bourbon and were quite surprised at the quality and smoothness of the house brew... More

We went for Sunday brunch and sat outside on the patio. There is plenty of outdoor seating, and the view of Franklin St. was pretty cool. I had chicken and waffles, served with butter and syrup, with coffee to drink. The waffle was thick and fluffy, and the chicken was crisp and flavorful. Our server was great- he knew the... More

Join the new beer culture and try the house brewed beers. They're good! Want to be daring? Try a blueberry beer. But don't forget the excellent cocktails. I really liked the TOPO Whiskey, made right here. The food is good. The service is super!
