“beautiful view with friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

We had lunch yesterday and found the food to be very good, the prices excellent. The waitress we had was Erica, she was very helpful in every way. My husband enjoyed the huge hamburger, I enjoyed a reuben & we both loved the tomato soup that was recommended by Erica. We will return!

“Always Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Stayed at the hotel for 3 weeks and this place is very good. The meals from mains to sandwiches are all excellant.
Just one thing....... arrange the tables in the bar area so customers can sit and eat with doing it themselves!

“The food and service were quite good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Stayed at the TBBR for a few nights while on business, we tried out Topsider our first night and were quite happy with the food and service, we came back again later during our trip. Sometimes the service can be slow, one evening we seated ourselves as there was no hostess, then we could hear the waitstaff complaining that we had just come in and sat down, but out waitperson was very polite and efficient. I'll certainly be back in the future.

“Breakfast can easily take an hour - be prepared to wait”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Food is good - I mean a decent amount ,but average quality and there is service with a smile but a slow kitchen with haphazard delivery of the food. This is puzzling since there are very few places in town that serve breakfast so you would think they would leap at the chance to build a name but no, it's plod plod plod when it comes to uncomplicated breakfast food. No wonder it is free when you stay there.
