They have a few really good sanwiches and the bar area is roomy and clean. It is a nice place to watch March Madness!

If you're looking for a great place for dinner, give quartermaster's a try. The food is very good, the menu features a good selection & it's reasonably priced. The service & atmosphere is just great--on our visit, a live band entertained in the bar area--a good one, too. Our family enjoyed our dinner & will definitely be back for more on our next Surf City/Topsail visit.

The food is average to good, and it's basic bar food, and a few fish and steak dishes. Staff is friendly, and the bar is good. You can do worse at topsail.

Quartermaster has it all. We've eaten here many times. We love the prime rib on weekends as well as the numerous seafood choices on the menu, and we are always impressed whenever they have a grilled fish special of the day so be sure to see if they have one when you go. Some weekends we are delighted to find great music from a local musician. Half the place is a sports bar, and the other half is a restaurant so there is something for everyone -- singles, couples, families. Four of us go frequently and always have a great meal and excellent service. The storefront in an unassuming strip mall may make you think this is nothing more than a sports bar, but don't let the exterior dissuade you -- this is excellent food in a fun, lively atmosphere with live music. We've been coming to Topsail Island and Surf City (this restaurant is on the mainland side of the bridge) for over 30 years and have been residents for over 10 years, and this is one of our favorite places to go. We highly recommend it.

As a local of Topsail area I must encourage everyone to eat at our local restaurants. Go to Quarter Master enjoy the atmosphere and menu!

Someone's review mentioned hit or miss, I would have to agree. Look the menu is great something for everyone but we have enjoyed Quarter Master for years, my dad looks forward to their Coconut shrimp each and every time.

A quick example is in my order of Shrimp Scampi they used both local fresh shrimp and non-local shrimp to complete the plate.
It was good but really eating locally I expect fresh local seafood!
