After a glass of white wine, the waiter suggested a half bottle if we were planning on two more glasses. When the bill came the HALF bottle was $400 !!!!!!!!!!!! Tried to explain to waiter that $400 was a bit excessive, but he just said "You didn't ask". Went to the manager after paying the bill, and he just said... More

Everything about the night was absolutely perfect. We had a private room. Every dish served was wonderful. The extensive wine list was so amazing, that I simply requested the cellar master's assistance and that was a good move. The staff was extremely knowledgeable, pleasant and professional. We were escorted from the dock by cordial members of the staff, through an... More

Bottom line: Worst restaurant at the highest price! We selected the $115/person tasting menu (6 courses including dessert). It became so awful that we were laughing hysterically to ease the pain of eating tasteless food and spending a fortune doing so. The only item that truly had any taste was the balsamic sorbet which was disgusting! Yes, I said BALSAMIC... More

We have been here many times and always look forward to a great meal! Once again we were not disappointed from the fresh greens to the tasty Wagyu burger. We also recommend the warm cookies out of the oven, yum! It is nice to see the service in par with the well prepared food. Each course was brought to the... More

Absolutely stunning setting near harbor bay and Coatue. We drive there but during the season one can take a boat ride from downtown. Service is stylish and impeccable. The food is terrific and there is an extensive wine list. Be sure to walk the grounds before and after your meal.

The grounds are magnificent & well maintained. Our dining experience was perfect. We had the Venice Spritz & Canella Bellini for starter drinks. It was a hot sunny day, we... More

Had two breakfasts and one Dinner at Toppers, They were the best by far. Eating out on the deck is casual and elegant at the same time. The food was great and the staff very attentive.

We heard this was the best restaurant in Nantucket, and we concur. Great food, great atmosphere, great views, great service. The prices are pretty high, but the overall experience/food/service is well worth the money. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

Fantastic lobster roll out on their patio in the warm September sunshine! Bliss! Took the 1-hour Wauwinet boat ride from The White Elephant (walking distance from downtown) across the Sound... and then back after lunch. What a wonderful adventure!

Topper's is in about the most picturesque lunch venue I've ever been to. It exudes the charm of Nantucket! Service was good and prices sky high as you might expect. The food quality was however inconsistent. Wine list good and extensive but overpriced. I will likely go back but it could be better!
