“St. Patrick's Day in the islands”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

We made a reservation at Toppers for St. Patrick's Day dinner. The placed was packed and really loud, which is how it should be on March 17. Our server did a great job despite the crowd. I had traditional corned beef and cabbage. The cabbage was okay, the beef was good but a bit fatty. The potatoes and carrots were really good (and I'm not a fan of carrots). We also tried the crab stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer. They were really good. Topper's had music playing outside, but it was so loud inside that you really couldn't tell it was playing. A great place to eat and have fun in Simpson Bay.

“2 Restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

There are 2 restaurants in Simpson bay. One at The Flamingo Resort and another on the main strip. This is the first time we went to the one on the strip and it was great. Although we could walk from our resort, there was a large lot next door. The DJ was awesome. He had a great voice!. I didn't like the karaoke. When we go out for dinner or drinks I want to enjoy the entertainment, to me it isn't entertaining. I met the owner there and he was so friendly. He introduced us to the bartenders. Shots were passed out so I had to buy some Rhum I had Mocha Mama (of course I bought some to go home, awesome over ice cream.

“Entertaining and fun.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Topper's restaurant and Bar was the highlight of our evening entertainment during our vacation in St. Maarten. Its a Karaoke Restaurant and Bar with great talent. The DJ is a Frenchman called Elvis, who himself has a great voice and does songs from Andrea Bocelli to Country. Topper is the owner and is there nightly to participate in the Karaoke and keep St. Maarten hospitality at a fever pitch. The food is excellent, the drinks big, and the entertainment supurb.

“yummy burgers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

It was good - I really liked this restaurant and can see why it is voted best burger! Food, service, and ambiance were great. The only caveat = why they make you buy bottled water when tap water on the island is supposed to be purified *per guide books. When I asked for water they told me the water was not purified. Not sure whether they are just making money on marked up bottled water or what. I experienced this a couple other places on the island as well but didn't want to argue about it and end up getting sick!!!
