Top of the Bay is a traditional Rhode Island restaurant that serves traditional New England food including chowder, stuffies, scrod, scallops and baked stuffed shrimp. The food is good, but nothing you can't get in dozens of other places in dozens of other RI cities and towns. However, the service is worth the trip, and the dicey drive into their... More

6:00pm on a Fri night. Very pretty view. Parking lot full w/ deep pot holes. Be careful. Waited 20 min. for table. Had drinks in the bar. 1wine, 1soda, 2gin tonics $30.00! Very noisy dining room. Baked scrod looked good but little taste. Chix francaise too lemony. Shrimp & pasta over cooked. Bread/dips very good. Soup good. Bartender & server... More

Lots of good menu choices and food is good. This resturant has great views and during summer month it can be very crowded with long waits. This is a place we frequent more during off season. Staff very friendly service is good. Lots of seafood selections and large portions.

Coming from the Midwest to N.E. on business I had high expectations for good seafood. Unfortunately this place, although attractive and right on the water, left a lot to be desired in the menu. Service was excellent, but the food choices were not what I was hoping for. Italian pasta?! Burgers?! I had the baked "scrod" - codfish - trying... More

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.

Thank Cathleen-Randy B
