The food was good. Lobster and fried oysters were good. But the service was also good. Went across the street first and got up and left. Our inn recommended another place but we walked out and ate here and was very happy we did. Highly recommend this fun little place.

We chose Topside Grill because of the Trip Advisor rating and were very disappointed last weekend. The fresh scallop entree was floating in so much oil, I couldn't eat the fish and my finance's monk fish tasted like paste. This is not a place for foodies. But, the drinks on tap were outstanding especially the Blueberry Sea Dog the staff... More

Topside Grill and Pub had friendly staff and our meal was reasonably priced but nothing out of the ordinary. I had the fish sandwich with bacon and scallions and I thought it was underseasoned. The best part of my meal was the cottage fries which were between a potato chip and a french fries. They were excellent and I would... More

A perfect meal outside watching the Fishtown Horribles Parade. Who would think that Chicken liver wrapped in bacon could be SO addicting? They may sounds gross, but OMG they taste SOOOO good! The Monkfish entree was cooked perfectly and very sizable portion as well. Staff were attentive, friendly and had a great sense of humor. from what we saw the... More

Their red gravy is very good! My husband had the penne pasta with meatballs, and I had the shrimp pasta dish. The bread was warm, and really good. Restaurant was clean, and our server was efficient.

Food was excellent and service was great! I had the seafood casserole(soo yummy), my husband had the baked haddock. The clam chowder was to die for! Our server Heather was very knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. She definitely made us feel at home and helped make our visit very enjoyable. We will be back next year for sure!'

My family and I went a couple days ago I agree with the others that mentioned empty water glasses. That alone put a damper on the meal as that was our only beverage.

Came here a few years ago and it was great, and I wanted to introduce Topside to a couple of friends for lunch. I ordered the daily soup, but never got it. Someone who came in after me had the last one. Well, it explained why 20 minutes after I ordered it, I still didn't receive it. Salad was ok,... More
