We enjoyed the views, and the overall excellence of this wonderful restaurant. Everything from the bread on the table, to wines, entrees and desserts were excellent. A great dining experience.

The service and food was just incredible at topper's. The waiters....Sommelier....and everything was perfect. We hosted a private dinner with 16 people is a small room of the restaurant. They did everything to make it special and perfect!

Polite but slow service. Decent food. Unfortunate (loud and self-absorbed) clientele. Nice outdoor seating but be prepared for many miserable betrothed couples passing through on venue visits. *Please don't make a Tom Collins with sour mix. Ever.More

We stayed at the Wauwinet, which is a bit far from town, so we ate at Topper's, which is inside the hotel. Nice setting, great service, the food was very good. This being Nantucket, everything is a bit overpriced, including wine. But this is a...More

I wish we were able to take the small, private ferry of theirs over from downtown Nantucket but that books up long in advance. The staff were great, very accommodating and attentive to our vegan diet, and the setting was beautiful.
