They’re expensive but worth it. Cocktails on the lawn, the quiet seclusion, far from the madding crowd. It’s just special. The food is always so beautifully presented, and service attentive but not stuffy. It’s for older folks I think, who appreciate quiet and graciousness. My...More

We were a bit underwhelmed by the food, and had we not been staying at the hotel, I am not sure a special trip for dinner would be warranted. Location and ambience on a nice night very special, however.

Dinner was very good, but the beautiful sunset over the water was really the highlight. It’s an amazing view. We got up in the middle of dinner to watch it and we weren’t alone. Don’t miss it. The service was excellent. I don’t recall our...More

Very expensive. Best value is the prefix option. First course/appetizers are extremely small and cost $30 per person. Food is good quality and presentation is nice. The chef offers complementary one bite starters and pre-dessert, which is a nice touch. Good atmosphere. Service was polite,...More

Ok - to be clear. The wine list alone is worth having one visit here. The food was beautifully presented with intermezzos for the table - like oysters and beef tartar brought to the table, gratis. The ‘brown bread’ is addictive. I had the halibut...More

One if the nicest spots on Nantucket with a great wine/drink lists and menu. Terrific if not impeccable service. Just a great place to enjoy lunch and the view.

Topper's menu is smart, upscale, with variety to please everyone. The cheese platter to start, the oysters, chowder, and the burger...amazing burger! We tried almost everything on the menu and it was all delicious. Breakfast was fun and delicious.

Hi Ira, I suggest that you dress in business casual. A female could definitely get away with dark (dressy) jeans and a nice top. For dinner, I suggest khakis and a button down for a male with nice shoes (no jacket... More
