Must have been some sort of winter special. Chowder and clam cakes, a choice from a dozen entrees, desert and... read more

Great local seafood; apps, lunch or dinner by the bay. Summer entertainment on open-aired upper level for drinks & apps. "Stuffies" are a must try RI favorite!

We have been going to Top of the Bay for years, it has changed hands over the years, but the view, the staff and the over all service/food is good. They have a great Mon-Thurs. special. You can't beat the price.

This restaurant is located on Oakland Beach in Warwick, R.I. It is open year round. We went for lunch on a very cold February day. The view of the water from the restaurant was very warm and beautiful with the sun shining across the bay. The service was outstanding with very pleasant waitstaff. They offer specials for lunch and dinner.... More

Stopped by for lunch on a cold, snowy day and the gorgeous view just lifted our spirits. Had the luncheon special, chowder, 2 clam cakes, choice of an entree (VERY generous portions), dessert and coffee for $11.95; what a deal!! Friendly place with good service, good food and a view to die for. Enjoy!

A friend and I went to lunch today (Friday) I had the steak sandwich and he ordered the fish and chips. As a food professional, he cut the first fish open and the smell of ammonia saw intense. The server very nicely too it back and brought another portion. This one was still obviously quite old and reeked of ammonia.... More
