Great pizza

Lots of reviews online have discussed sub-par service. We had the exact opposite experience. Our rental home was in walking distance of Tippy's, so we visited several times. Our service was prompt and attentive each time. The food was consistent and good, but nothing spectacular. Try the pizza... read more

Great for lunch or dinner with live music each Saturday night featuring Rake n Scrape, classics and reggae. Fresh seafood, Bahamian classics (conch fritters), fresh pizzas, and amazing drinks. Friendly wait team.

Tippys is in a great location on Banks Rd, surrounded by a nice collection of rental properties. It has a beautiful ocean view and good snorkeling just off the beach. These are the positive things I can say. As many others have said, the service is a bit surly and indifferent. Not slow or rude, but they simply don't seem... More

We ate here 4 times during our stay, the food is excellent and the restaurant has a great view and access to the beach. The staff are attentive and the owner is a real character who is always around chatting to customers etc. They have a very extensive menu including typical local seafood and fantastic Italian dishes. There is also... More

Tippy's is a must when in Eleuthera!! It is pricy, but well worth it- Drinks, food, and the view!! Staff- not the friendliest... Coconut shrimp are the best I've ever had in my life!! Restaurant closes at 9pm so go early!

Had heard a lot about the restaurant so our first day we visited for lunch. Were quite amazed at the prices for sandwiches there and beer selection was limited. We had the fish sandwich for lunch and it was good, small pieces of fish for large price. Loication is excellent and view is great. Service was very good.

Had a good meal here tonight. But $12.60 for a gin and tonic. And then the dinner bill came with a scrawl at the bottom which probably said service included. Did the math and they had added 25%! Seem rather steep on top of high prices.

Dinner is always great here! We have traveled to the island two years in a row and always plan at least two dinners at Tippy's. The food is consistently fresh and delicious.

Located on the Atlantic side of the island, Tippys has a nice cool breeze for your meals even during the middle of the day. The menu is large enough that everyone will be happy and the quality is great. It has a nice dinner atmosphere with live music from time to time. Make sure to call in advance to ensure... More
