I've been coming to this venue for several summers and I will be back this summer as well. Food is great with consistent quality throughout the seasons, atmosphere is very relaxed and there is a great view from the deck overlooking marina. Also, the best Brandy Alexander's I've had which is also their signature drink.

Really enjoyed sitting outside and watching the boats go in and out of the docks. We had the Cuban sandwiches. We tried them based on other reviews. They were good but not as large... More

Stop there for phenomenal Brandy Alexanders anytime. They had a little trouble keeping up with demand during the super heat this past summer. All is well now. And their food is also very good.

We stopped in initially just to do a little shopping. They have a wide variety of clothing, tourist type gifts, as well as well equipped marina hardware section, bottled drinks, candies and ice cream. They also have a bar with bar food and a little patio right over looking the arena. Locals use the location a lot, and they even... More

We visited the island on a Monday and had lunch at Topsy Turvey's. We were seated right away and had a nice view of the water from the patio. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly and took our orders in a timely fashion, even coordinating with the young adults that were dining with us at another table. The food,... More

This has to be my favorite place to eat on South Bass Island. I go there every time I visit. The food is great. I have enjoyed everything I have tried there but the Cubans are by far my favorite. I did take a picture but after I had eaten half my food. It was too good to wait!
