The Top continues to live up to it's name once again as a quality eatery with a genuinely quirky vibe! Our party of four, plus a toddler, were well taken care of by Josh! Each meal was prepared exactly as ordered and came out hot...More

The Grilled cheese sandwich with sweet potato fries is terrific. They serve a nice Gosling ginger beer. The person I was with had the crab cakes which were a good size but she said they were just ok. The salted caramel crème Brule tasted like...More
