Location is everything and Tippy's has a great location on a beautiful white sand beach. With a great bar area and opposite the Pineapple Fields resort is very convenient. The staff were very efficient and friendly. It has a great atmosphere too. But the food is not as good as it used to be. The portions are smaller and the... More

We stopped here on our first night on the island. There was a very wide selection on the menu. With the exception of my son's pizza, everyone enjoyed what was ordered. Very nice beach atmosphere and good service. Prices were very high ($19 for a pizza for one, $28 for fajitas), even compared to other restaurants on the island. The... More

Someone on the plane told us to try Tippy's - that it was the place to be & to make reservations b/c it's so popular. So, obviously we were excited to go...only to be VERY disappointed. The service was horrendous - The food was adequate and extremely overpriced - We were rushed - I think we each received one drink... More

We had similar experiences as many others. Decent food, overpriced, and mediocre service. Not much more to say. Good for one visit, but probably wouldn't go back.

Agree with general comments of others regarding service, food quality v price. For whatever reason we had trouble finding club med/french leave beach (entrance is essentially unmarked dirt road just north of Beach House). We gave up, hit Tippy's, took advantage of the parking and spent the rest of the afternoon there. There are a few small reefs which are... More

One of my favorite meals while on the island. The roasted lobster tale was outstanding. This was the only restaurant we visited where we actually needed a reservation. We went by on Thursday afternoon and they didn't have anything available that evening so we made a reservation for Saturday and are glad we did. The place was packed but our... More

The food at Tippy's, we had lobster pasta and tacos, was really great! The location is right at the beach and has an awesome atmosphere. The people are very welcoming and nice. But the food and drinks are a little overpriced for young travelers. We paid 100$ for 2 people.

Notwithstanding some comments from other reviewers, I found the staff accommodating and friendly. Yes; call for a reservation on most nights to avoid disappointment. Love the coconut shrimp, seafood specials and really good pizza. Face it. Eleuthera is not a foodie destination. But Tippy's, the Beach House and Da Perk give you some satisfying island choices in Governors Harbor.

Tippy's is the sort of place you imagine before you go to the out islands - on a great beach, good food, friendly service. Wish we could go back tomorrow!

OK - let's be frank: Eleuthera is not exactly a foodie destination. However, Tippy's is a good restaurant on a spectacular spot on the beach. Our family ate two dinners there and the food varied from decent to excellent. The menu is fairly eclectic with a mixture of cuisines including Italian, french and Cajun. On my first visit I had...
