We had a great dinner here and came back a few times to sit at the bar for a drink. The location is great and the service is really friendly.

We came to Tippy's one night having no idea what to expect. What we found was expensive entrees for average portion sizes, the food was decent (wouldn't say it was quite worth the money) but the atmosphere was great. The service wasn't slow, but wasn't fast and the servers were a little cold to us both times we went there.... More

Love this place. The food is great but the vibe is even better! We had pizza, tuna steaks, salads and the NY strip. Skip the steak but everything else was delicious. Laid back- total Eleuthera casual feel on the beach!

Wow! Great location and best food experience of our trip. Definitely recommend making reservations. This restaurant is very will known so call in advance. Food was excellent and every night we dined at this beach side restaurant, there was live music. Plan on spending some time before or after dinner out on the deck overlooking the beach and beautiful water.... More

Tippy's is right on the beach with a great view, outdoor decks and bar seating, and even when indoors the whole back wall opens to the view. The food is excellent, maybe a little pricey but everything is imported. Our servers were excellent every visit. If Big E is behind the bar you will be warmly greeted, he also sings... More

Tippy’s We did sit down dinner. This was our least favorite of the week. We might have hit it on an off night. The atmosphere and view however were good. The service was also not an issue for us as previously been reported. We made reservations for this restaurant and were glad we did with a group of our size.

Through the years we have always gone to Tippy's when we wanted a special meal in a lovely beach front dining room. The only disappointing thing is the loud volume of the music. The olive, caper and anchovy pizza is my husband's consistent favorite. It has a thin crust and is served with a bottle of spicy olive oil. Their... More

Sunset @ Tippys and a fine dinner by Big E is worth the visit. Big E took care of of my group and wife for her Birthday. You can not beat this atmosphere.

We were there for lunch and dinner in the same week. The dinner vibe was a bit caustic somehow. I think the owner walks around stressing everyone out with his arrogance. Service is spotty. Food is just ok but not fantastic - perhaps compared to other Eluethera restaurants this is a good one? Lunch was a bit more fun and... More
