Tippy's is the best!!!

Tippy's is hands down the best place to eat in Governor's Harbor!! We loved the conch fritters and the lobster was the size of a steak!!! Every single time we ate here we had good service and great food. It is located right on the beach so the view is incredible as well.

Tippy's was a "must visit" destination for us based on all we had heard. Our large party arrived early to get a seat and were met by a staff uninterested in serving us - despite a restaurant that appeared quite empty. We persisted and ended up with a table at the bar. The food was average and the drinks poor.... More

beautiful location, overlooking the club med atlantic beach. very open and airy, great views. we were there for lunch (dinner reservations are suggested). I had the cracked conch and my husband had the fish and chips. and with 2 bottles of water the bill came to $70 which seems a bit high. (we did not have any wine or beer).... More

According not only to Trip Advisor reviews AND locals, everyone likes Tippy's. I have no idea why. We had lunch there on a Saturday. We were seated promptly and the menu boards were toted near our table so we could get a better look at them. The offerings were standard island fare. We ordered two beers, the fish and chips...

While the food and drinks were good, the rest was not. The entire restaurant shares a single menu that is passed from table to table. The waitress was slow and inefficient. To crown it off, there were bugs falling from the rafters into my food, onto my head, and crawling all over the place. I was forced to leave early... More

We stayed at Pineapple Fields in January and ate at Tippys 4 or 5 times. Elliott was a great host and a pretty good singer as well. The fresh fish was great and specials were always good. We loved it.

Tippy's had great conch fritters to start with, and the surf and turf and seafood stew was also really good. Yes, it is pricey, but so are a lot of restaurants on Eleuthera. We had great service and the band is really fun on Saturday nights. The setting is really spectacular and if you are looking for a real beach... More

we had a delicious dinner last night and the service was just fine. The woman waiting on us had a lot of tables and she wasn't chatty because she was busy. My husband had bruschetta and a conch and spinach ravioli; I had conch and vegetable soup and conch dinner. All were very good though I didn't realize my conch... More

It's on a beaithiful beach with a beautiful view and they have decilious food. And what's really great. You can bring your dog. They have great... More

Efficient but unfriendly waitress clearly overworked. very few vegetables. All dinners expensive except pizza. No appetizer menu or sandwiches for dinner hour. Be prepared to pay above twenty for meals that include lots of pasta. Fresh fish was in scant supply on menu when we visited.
