New establishment called Pelican Grill run by Diamond Resorts. A bit pricey for the amount of food you get. Not as good as Toppers was. Toppers still has main restaurant on Welfare Rd.

I was on lunch and ordered take out, it was ready in no time and taste so good. I had a fried shrimp po'boy, fries and you can barely see the slaw(too small of a serving but tasted so good). I enjoyed my food here! Price not bad either considering the location $14.50.

Friendly place with lots of people coming in and out. It gets very busy later in the evenings and has live music.Our appetizers were really good! Generous and not very expensive. We loved watching the bartenders do their thing with great attitudes.

The karaoke was ok! A bunch of kids screaming drunk songs. It's a much younger crowd. My husband and I ordered the rum punch, wasn't bad. Not enough seating here. Small place

This place has a great atmosphere and is very welcoming of guests. I understand that they have their own varieties of rum, although I didn't sample any myself.

Place is now called the "Pelican Cafe" and the food was pretty good. You get lots to eat and always fresh and hot. Was conveniently located steps from our room and overlooked the Simpson Bay Beach.

Went to Toppers Simpson Bay. They have 2 locations. Run by both owners. Went e nights and had 2 great meals and 1 great bar/karaoke night. The staff are wonderful and will make sure you food is what you want. They sample some delightful rum made by them which you can buy there or at their distillery. Going back!
