Local Bites: TOPWATER GRILL / by Alexis Salerno


As fresh as it gets!

Topwater has my Top Recommendation for the Bay Area! The Resturant offers Seaside Seating off April Fool's Point and a Great Selection of Fresh Seafood! If you're looking for something quick, the Blackened Fish Tacos or Crab & Corn Chowder are always readily on hand! On the other hand, if you're looking to Tantalize your Tastebuds with a Seafood Feast.... 

                   Buttery Red Shrimp from Florida

                   Buttery Red Shrimp from Florida

Great Beginnings... Torpedos, or for those who can't handle the heat- the Bobbers, are an All-time Favorite; given they are deep fried crab stuffed peppers. The Black Peppered Tuna for the Suhi Enthusiast; excellent quality tuna and served with fresh ginger and Wasabi . For the Low-Carb Dieter looking to satisfy the munchies- The Stuffed Mushroom Caps are Cheesy Deliciousness! Also listed as an appetizer, and MY CURRENT FAVORITE- the RED SHRIMP. These Monsters are brought in from Florida and taste like Buttery Lobster. They are $20/lb. and brought to your table in a steam pot, the order is about 12 Shrimp and they are huge! Depending on how much butter you dowse the Shrimp in, these can be a Healthy Option ;)

Oysters ~ Oysters ~ Oysters -TRY THEM ALL! I recommend a Barnacle to accompany.... The Barnacle is an Excellent Edition of the Bloody Mary; Topwater Serves the Icy Concoctions with all the Fixings and just enough Spice!  

I have yet to have an entree that i wouldn't order again. The Fried Platters are all great, but the Real Applause can be saved for the Pecan Crusted Snapper and Pan Seared Oysters- Original and Savory! It is easy to see that the Freshest Seafood Available is used in each dish. 

If the Weather is temperate, the Gliders surrounding the dock are my favorite place to sit and enjoy watching the Boats and Pelicans drift about!
