“Fun night spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Just spent a week in Simpson bay and we ended two of our nights at Toppers for karaoke. The bartender is super friendly and a good singer too. Topper was there and was personally welcoming everyone to the bar as they came. Nice guy who cares about his clients.

I cannot speak to the food as we were just there for drinks but we had a great time.

“Sad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

We have been going to Toppers for many years and were disappointed. The server was very nice but the food wasn't that good. Don't think we will be going back

“Yummy carribean lobster”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We ate in the bar the last night we were there and took advantage of their lobster special. The service was great and the food delicious. We're just sad we found it on our last night in ST Maarten

“Best Beachbar/Restaurant On Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

This was our second year at Flamingo Beach Resort and spending a lot of time at Toppers. This is more than a great beach bar. It is a great restaurant. I think we ate dinner there 4 to 5 nights out of the 7 nights on island. Not counting a few lunches. Their menu is extremely varied with a lot of options and everything we had was excellent. Prime Rib (excellent), snapper (very good), stuffed mahi (very good), Black and Blue Burger (excellent), coconut shrimp (excellent), seared ahi (excellent), buffalo wings (very good), and more. Jimmy and his staff, especially the manger Ollie are the best around in the world. They are so committed to customer service, pay attention to details, are hands on, and certainly take pride in maintaining their excellent reputation for service, great food, and a strong family feel and relationship with everyone that works there. They are famous for their hanging kabobs. They are also excellent. We did not have any this year, but did last year. Too many other items attracted us. Prices are reasonable for island pricing and as stated earlier the variety and quality of their food is great. Every time we thought of going some where else for a meal, we kept going back to Toppers By The Sea since we knew we would have a great meal and great service along with a great veiw. This is THE PLACE to watch the sunset and have cocktail or appetizer and then have dinner. Sunset view is awesome.

“downhill”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

We went to Topper's on our St Maarten vacation again in 2012, it has gone downhill. Nalia is no longer there, having pursued her business venture, and I think this has something to do with the downhill slide. No longer do you feel like you are a special guest, just another customer. Same old food, some pretty good, some not good. Tried the other Topper's across from Skipjacks, same food, better atmosphere. We are not going to St Maarten this year (2013), went to Vegas instead.
