We were sitting on the deck, great view over the bay. Nice Service and the food was realy good. I have orderd Tacos as Appetizers, but they where so big, much more then I was able to eat. The shmrips where also well cooked. All my friends where also very satisfied about the quality and quantity.

We had a party of 32 people and had outstanding service. Shout out to our server Jessica as she was with our group over 3 hours. We had appetizers and drinks. Recommend the crab & artichoke dip and she crab soup. Main entrees were good and served hot. A variety of desserts as well. Thanks for a great time!!!

The ocean view is the only reason to visit this restaurant. We visited at dinner time and the sunset was spectacular. The food was reasonably priced but the portion sizes were very small.

Enjoyed an early dinner... I had a spinach salad with strawberries and feta with a great orange viniagrette and a dozen steamed clams (a little small!) and my husband had a flounder sandwich with fries. All was delicious and served quickly. I love the atmosphere on the Top Deck!

Crab cakes were delicious, but the fish and chips were the best and most fresh. Shrimp was excellent, and the view made it even better! Oh, and they have freshly brewed tea (sweet and unsweet) & Coca Cola, for those of you that it matters to!! :)

They serve mainly seafood but have a couple of chicken and steak options as well. This day I had the steam shrimp with corn on cob, potatoes and sausage and nachos. Everything was... More
