Very reasonably priced lunch special. The seafood dishes we tried were all very good and nicely presented. Our waiter was wonderful and did everything possible to make our lunch a real treat. Nice views even on a rainy day. Great location and best cup of decaf ever. Maybe it was the rich chocolate brownie served with it!

Celebrated birthdays last Saturday with my wife, adult children and sister in law. Restaurant has large windows overlooking the bay. Unfortunately fog rolled in about ten minutes before we arrived. Server was attentive and we were not rushed. Drinks are a generous size and reasonably priced. I have been there before but returned to try fish n chips. Glad I... More

Top of the Bay is a traditional Rhode Island restaurant that serves traditional New England food including chowder, stuffies, scrod, scallops and baked stuffed shrimp. The food is good, but nothing you can't get in dozens of other places in dozens of other RI cities and towns. However, the service is worth the trip, and the dicey drive into their... More

6:00pm on a Fri night. Very pretty view. Parking lot full w/ deep pot holes. Be careful. Waited 20 min. for table. Had drinks in the bar. 1wine, 1soda, 2gin tonics $30.00! Very noisy dining room. Baked scrod looked good but little taste. Chix francaise too lemony. Shrimp & pasta over cooked. Bread/dips very good. Soup good. Bartender & server... More

Lots of good menu choices and food is good. This resturant has great views and during summer month it can be very crowded with long waits. This is a place we frequent more during off season. Staff very friendly service is good. Lots of seafood selections and large portions.

Coming from the Midwest to N.E. on business I had high expectations for good seafood. Unfortunately this place, although attractive and right on the water, left a lot to be desired in the menu. Service was excellent, but the food choices were not what I was hoping for. Italian pasta?! Burgers?! I had the baked "scrod" - codfish - trying... More

Four of us had lunch here on a dreary Saturday. We were seated promptly at a table near the window, but that was the only prompt service that we experienced. Service was slow- we waited quite a while for both drinks and food. We each ordered a different lunch special, which I would definitely not recommend - they were dry,... More
