In past years the cuisine at Topper's was consistently exceptional, and we were thus disappointed that both dinners we had while staying at The Wauwinet this year fell short of expectations. Among starters, too high a ratio of butter to fois gras diluted the flavor of the fois gras terrine, and the accompaniments were a bit too sweet for our... More

The location is amazing. Go before sunset and sit out on the deck with a cocktail and enjoy the view. But then stop there and save your money. At over $700 for four people this restaurant was our most expensive outing by far on the island. We sat in the dining room which was stuffy and traditional (although comfortable). The... More

Our group of 5 adults made a very early reservation since we also had a 2 year of with us. The staff was extremely nice and helpful even interacting with the 2 year old as the rest of us made our ordering decisions. All of the food we ordered was really good and arrived quickly but the more interesting choices... More

We first visited Wauwinet in 1975, stumbling upon what was then nothing more than a boarding house with community bathrooms in the hallway. Great memories of those days before cell phones and email. Have been back to Nantucket many times since, but never visited Wauwinet or Toppers - their over-the-top restaurant. What a transformation, and what a delight. The menu... More

My husband and I were visiting our son and had the pleasure of having lunch at Toppers restaurant in Nantucket. Not only is the setting beautiful but the food was outstanding. The lobster roll was filled with chuncks of fresh lobster. The lobster pasta had huge pieces of lobster meat sitting on a bed of pasta. Desserts - what can... More

Took the boat from the White Elephant -- enjoyed the views and the cocktails. The experience was memorable. The service was impeccable -- especially the wine selection was fantastic and the good was amazing. The attention to my celiac related Gluten-free diet was fabulous. The high light of our trip.

The food is expertly prepared and beautifully presented. The service is exceptional. The atmosphere is charming. And the sunsets, visible from the dining tables or on the grass, are often spectacular. I would rate this as one of the top two or three restaurants at which I've eaten in the U.S. But one warning -- it's expensive.
