2nd visit here and was a little disappointed. Food was good but wait service needs work. This was a Fri night and very busy but Tops is know for being "the spot". Waited a very long time to be seated, then another long time to give our drink order, and another wait etc etc. Will probably give Tops another try later on but it will NOT be a Fri night. Not sure their wait staff is trained for crowds.

We ate here with family, it was great. You can't go wrong no matter what you order and the prices were fair too. Definitely recommend eating here!

We take out food from Tops about once every other week. It's great food with large portions and quick service. We love the burgers (Double Trouble is a personal favorite), omelets, crab cakes, short ribs, lamb gyro, and chicken pot pie. The loaded fries are also a great splurge food every once and a while! They literally have everything - you won't be disappointed!!!

Visited here while on a trip for work. I was able to walk from my hotel. The menu was huge and I was skeptical if the food would be good. I got a baked pasta dish that was massive with a salad and bread and it was delicious.

I eat at Tops almost every weekend and it never disappoints. The food is always amazing and the portions are huge (prices are slightly higher than other diners in area but definitely worth it!). Be prepared to wait to be seated, especially if you have more than 2 people in your party. Only complaint is that we never get to try their desserts (which we hear great things about) because we are too full to eat anything else after eating our meals.
