Not easy to get in, but...

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.

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

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

Great food, beautiful view, friendly staff and steps away from my hotel! Couldn't have asked for a better restaurant!

We stopped at Tippy's for a really late lunch because (frankly) we got lost. Even though it's pretty easy to find :) The chef walks out the door at 2:30 and doesn't return until the evening, so prepare accordingly. We just barely made the cut and, while we can appreciate that the chef needs a break, felt bad for the... More

We ate here for dinner one night and lunch another day. Dinner was very good. Service was slow but that is to be expected in the Bahamas. Lunch was another story. We had two pizzas - chicken and one lobster. The pizza was delicious. The restaurant had the doors open to let in fresh air and the flies were awful.... More

Not to take away from the food or location but the service was not nearly as good or friendly as the rest of island and food is more costly. We would not return.
