As always, I had a great experience at Top Hatters. Marco, the bartender, provides excellent service and makes truly tasty cocktails. I brought a newcomer with me and he really enjoyed the food and the vibe as well. Looking forward to returning again in the future.

Food was excellent. Great portion sides with Filet. Had to take some home which I don’t do often but I had to can’t wait to eat what’s left! Prime rib got a great review from our table. Awesome to choose blackened with garlic butter. Steak cooked to perfection was so soft and melts in your mouth, delicious meal. Will come back after the revamp to see what’s new! Def recommend for a solid affordable and bomb dinner experience!

Thank you so much to the staff at Sens! Our party ended up being larger than we'd planned and the staff were all so helpful and accommodating. The food was great and our group particularly enjoyed the bar that was easy to stand and chat at! Thank you again for a fun and delicious time.

Black cod was a special this day prepared perfectly with small vegetables underneath, very delicious. Servers were very attentive. We sat on the patio semi enclosed by the plastic sheeting. Those seated outside the plastic had wonderful views, but I'm not sure there were heat lamps out there. They were open on New Year's Day! I'm looking forward to going back again and again as the weather warms to sit on their deck.
