We were looking for a comfortable, casual seafood experience, and we found it! Try the clam cakes and lobster ravioli; they are delicious! Excellent location, fantastic food, friendly waitstaff, and gorgeous dinner view! Fair warning though--parking is hard to come by.

We wanted a restaurant with a view of the water and this certainly fulfilled that. They also have an upstairs room that looks like it recently open. As with another reviewer, we had Josh as our server and he did an excellent job. I was not aware soup came with the meal and am not a chowder lover be he... More

We wanted a lobster dinner with a view of the water and we found it at Top of the Bay. There is a great bar upstairs with a friendly crowd.

great atmosphere with wonderful views of the beach as you eat. The food was okay, nothing to rave about, my son did not enjoy the fish and chips but others enjoyed the bang bang shrimp, and calamari. The service was just okay. We noticed a lot of standing around of the wait staff.

My wife, 2 daughters and I went to dinner here. It was great. Service was fast and our waiter, Josh was working his tail off. You are started with some bread that comes with oil, an herb butter and humus. That was before we ordered. Then we started with Clam Chowder and some "famous" clam cakes. Both were outstanding. My...

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
