Have to love what the locals recommend because Topsy Turveys was excellent. I had to go with the local Lake Erie Perch Sandwich ($17), and the HUUUUGE onion rings our server highly recommended. We especially enjoyed sitting on the deck overlooking the marina!

Driving into town, we asked our taxi driver, Coop, for a lunch recommendation, and he immediately said Topsy Turvey and even pointed out the blue roof on the other side of the park. topsy turvy put-in-bay menu was reasonably priced.

We go to the island around lunch. Found this place on the visitors' bureau website. Topsy Turveys is a fun atmosphere. The burgers were great! Chicken chunks with hot sauce were enjoyed by my teenagers. The grilled cheeses were offered with veggies or bacon and several other toppings, all on sourdough bread. Mouthwatering. The onion rings and fries were outstanding! Would recommend.

We always enjoy our visits to Topsy Turveys. The two waitresses did a fantastic job taking care of the large crowd. Loved their Brandy Alexanders. My husband and I also shared an order of chicken bites...tasty!

Stephan A.

Delicious food, cold drinks, and the best prices around for a meal. If you have never been inside Topsy Turveys, you must go to check out the bar decor!!

Tommy C.

Stopped in for Saturday breakfast. The service was excellent. Breakfast Cuban was outstanding. Home fries were good. The coffee was delicious. I finished with a hurricane. Best I've had. Highly recommend Topsy Turveys for breakfast on South Bass.

Alvan F.

What a great spot right on the water for lunch, Ruben egg rolls were amazing. for breakfast, the Cubano was excellent and just what u want after a night of drinking. Their house frozen drink is basically spiced boozy chocolate milk called a Brandy Alexander, and it's INCREDIBLE ... ALL the gals and guy behind the bar were working hard and attentive and made our trip to the island fantastic with their customer service and unique concoctions can't wait to go back to Topsy Turveys.

The only place open when the season is over Topsy Turveys. I loved the dollars all over the walls & ceiling, but it's due for a makeover theme. Just saying! Alcoholic drinks and bar food are always available, but the kitchen closes early, so plan yourself.

Tucker F.

First time visiting Topsy Turveys! I had an excellent time.... very clean. The staff was amicable and helpful with the menu.. they were also very patient with the kids. The place is surrounded with money signed by the guests and stapled to the walls, ceilings, and supports, which was pretty cool... And as you can see, we also had to partake in the dollar signing and hanging.. lol

Sierra Z.

Topsy Turveys is a cheap place that some of the locals go to!! Taxi Cabs cost 4 dollars a person to get there from the ferry ..food is usually 10-14 a dish unless you do their fresh caught Perch ....amazing atmosphere!

Leann S.

This is exactly what you envision for a "hole-in-the-wall" bar. Topsy Turveys is a decent bar food, entertaining local bartenders, and a good assortment of barflies to talk to and be entertained by.

I was looking for something different while on the island and decided to try this place out. Service was excellent, the Topsy Turveys Brandy Alexander hit the spot, and the food was on point. Recommend trying it out. You can't go wrong with the Topsy Turveys Reuben sandwich. The Cuban was good, also. Great atmosphere and an awesome view
