The place looks like a shack, and that is an absolutely important part of it's charm. Delicious food, excellent service (ask for Chris). The nightlife on live music nights is local and entertaining. During the day, have a margarita with lunch and enjoy the amazing views of the Atlantic and the adjacent beach.

Quite by chance Tippy's was our nearest bar and restaurant while in Eleuthera. Fantastic views of French Leave Beach, with pink sand, overlooking the Atlantic. We ate there twice and the food was always excellent. Fish variety and freshness was superb. You have to go for the cocktails. In the hands of Elliot, the barman, you can loose an afternoon... More

Tippy's was awesome. You definitively need to make reservations as it can get very crowded, but in a good way. Probably because the food is that good. It has a beautiful location right on the Atlantic. We definitively recommend a night out at Tippy's.

It took us over an hour to find Tippy's because there are no signs. Oh yes one sign once you find the road of Queens Highway and the sign is one mile from the restaurant. Don't bother getting lost to find it and don't bother getting there unlost. We arrived at 11:30 am looking for a drink and lunch, to... More

We had such high hopes for Tippy's, after reading tons of great reviews. Unfortunately, we were severely let down. The service was terrible -- it didn't seem like the staff wanted to be there at all. The food was just not good either. I had conch raviolis and my husband had cracked conch. The conch itself was extremely tough and... More

We read all the reviews, often mixed. Went without a reservation and encountered some flack, but got seated and had a great pizza and drinks. Tried to go back but they were not open.

Whether it's lunch or dinner or drinks at the bar, this is THE place for delicious food, great entertainment and friendly service all set in a delightful beach setting. Have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The menu changes every day with a few reliable standards on offer. If the fresh grouper tacos are offered, they are... More

A beautiful location!! We have been coming to Eleuthera for several years and always come to Tippy's for the location and music. Ww would go there more often but the hospitality is touch and go. The people of Governors Harbour and the other nearby restaurants are so welcoming and friendly as opposed to the Tippy's crew. The food is good.... More
