Following a tour of Topper's distillery, a group of about 15-20 went to dinner at the restaurant. The waitress handled a large group well. Our meals were gratis, so I didn't notice the price. My husband ordered prime rib. The portion was very large! I ordered lobster...tasty. Save room for dessert!

Great clean bar and restaurant in busy beach area. Way better then average food for this type of place and highly recommend sautéed Calamari and Tuna. Look forward to coming back here and won't miss it on our next visit to St. Maarten.

This is no longer called Toppers, now its Pelican Grill, but the menu is the same. Its on the beach between the Flamingo and Simpson Bay resorts. My mom and I had frozen daiquiris and enjoyed a huge salad and coconut shrimp. My dad and husband ordered the angus burgers and said they were excellent.

We stay at Flamingo Beach Resort and Toppers is right there. The food is OK. They used to have better happy hours offering more variety of drinks. It was never limited and you could get the big cups if you wanted. We only seem to have breakfast there when it opens anymore if we do at all. You can walk... More

We went based on reviews posted here. We wonder why we had such a different experience. The food was very average -- nothing to take note of. The service was indifferent at best. We sat for ages waiting to have a drink order taken. It wasn't busy so we just assumed that the wait staff just didn't care. We asked... More
