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

Great food, excellent service and good prices... You couldn't ask for anything better. Try their lunch specials...$11.95 gets you chowder, clam cakes, entree, coffee and dessert... You'll leave stuffed to the brim and probably with left overs. The view of Oakland Beach is also very nice. Definitely give it a try.

We stopped for lunch on a weekday, still had a 20 minute wait. The food was good and the views cannot be beat! Fair prices too.

Last night was actually my second dinner at this restaurant. Extremely friendly staff, great atmosphere with the absence of noise pollution. Guests could really appreciate lively or intimate conversation. Service was reasonably quick and very accomodating. However, all our main courses did not meet our expectations. My first dinner was very good but last night was a deception foodwise. Although... More

We chose this restaurant based on the TripAdvisor reviews, and we were not disappointed in any way. The restaurant has a lovely view of the Bay, and we were delightfully surprised by the excellent menu choices. We started out with crab cake appetizers to share, and made the mistake or ordering a dozen for 3 people. Six would have been... More

Best food I had in Rhode Island I spent a week in Rhode Island visiting Newport and Providence. The food at Top of the Bay was the best meal of the week.

Recently on a stay in Providence, a group of us asked our hotel clerk where to go to get some really great food. He pointed us in the direction of Top of The Bay and we couldn't have been more satisfied with the suggestion. Before you even walk in, the restaurant has amazing views and decor outside for the season.... More

I really like this place. It has a fine menu with a variety of seafood, good drink selections, including wine, beer, and mixed drinks, and a down-to-earth, but high-quality atmosphere. Other reviewers are right--the views are fantastic from every angle. The wait staff is friendly and enthusiastic. Sea scallops are great, but others in our party had salmon and other... More
