Crab Cakes were disappointing!

We ate here with a friend on July 10, 2015. Crab cakes were listed as "Lump," but there really weren't and real lumps! Flavor was good, but since I do love real lump crabcakes (as in Chesapeake Bay) my experience was disappointing.

Went here before bringing our visiting friends from England. Wanted to check it out. It was absolutely fantastic. The four of us really enjoyed everything. Great food, great service, great prices.... Will definitely be back.

The Top of the Bay restaurant in Warwick is located at the point of Oakland Beach - with a view of the bay - across the street from Iggy's.. It's a very popular spot - so you will probably need reservations at least on weekends. It's strengths are a good variety of menu selections - and large portions - including... More

Great view of Narragansett Bay. The food was good but served on the cool side. Apparently had been sitting a while before being served. Plenty to eat. Could not get our waiter's attention so we could get some heat added to the food.

The Top of the Bay is the old "Cherry Stones Restaurant" for anyone trying to locate this restaurant. There is a great View of Greenwick Bay & Beach. The building is the old style sea front restaurant. If this is a first trip to the Rhode Island Beach's, its worth seeing. As far as the food, as the title states,... More

For lunch, it is too costly for the meal, just order one of the specials. Comes with soup, entree, coffee and pudding. Great service and the view is great of the Bay!

My wife and I ate here for the first time this past sunday afternoon. I think we found a new favorite restaurant! Outdoor seating, ocean views, good prices, great food and friendly service. We had a baked seafood dish and a bowl of delicious white clam chowder.

I had a couple of gluten free crab-cakes. I like the fact that they offered them both with and without gluten. (i am a gluten free kind of gal). The crab-cakes were heavenly. The waiter was super nice. They had some very tempting desserts.

My very first visit to Oakland Beach and I didn't know what to expect, but I had a delicious lobster lunch, in a very, very nice restaurant and a courteous staff.
