Sadly we were very unhappy with our most recent visit. Service was really bad. Very slow service. Food was not as generous or as tasty as it used to be. Hope they get back on track or maybe we just hit it on a bad day. We would still try it again.

I had high hopes for this restaurant- the view, the focus on seafood, the decor. Unfortunately, our waitress was poor and the food was just average. Most of our party was sat and about five ministers later, the rest of our party arrived. They were not immediately shown to our table and were told we hadn't arrived yet. Most of... More

It literally is at the Top of Narragansett Bay Great Seafood, Steaks with a Mediterranean glare. Service is also at the Top of the charts, and the view of Rhode Idland's treasure is always worth the trip. For special events, a quick roof top bar drink and a bite. Nothing beats Top of the Bay.

I have never seen such work of art in preparing this elegant food. I ordered lobster salad...oh my goodness. Lobster, veggies and fruit salad in one. But as I said its not even the food but the whole presentation!!

I wish I could rate this five stars but when we went the food took a long time. The server was not attentive at all.. Food was just OK when we received it but not everyone received their meal at the same time.

Oakland beach area is a very crowded place in the summer..We went to Top of the Bay at 6pm on a Friday night and was told the wait was 2 hours. We went up to the top deck for a panini which was more of a basic home made grill cheese with a few veggies. The waitstaff were friendly enough... More

I was in Rhode Island for business and I asked where I can get good clam chowder. My business partner recommended this restaurant and I was not disappointed. I ordered the clam chowder and crab cakes and they were delicious! Great ambiance and perfect setting to sit and have a relaxing meal.

Beautiful ocean views and well worth our 40min dinner wait. A bit noisy and hard to hear our waiter but food came out quickly and was very enjoyable.

Came here for dinner - we enjoyed the meal and would say the Lobster roll was the best thing we ate. Not overly impressed with the bar but they do have a pretty special view from the upper deck area. No fault of the restaurant but the single lane, one way street is awful on a busy night and the... More
