Amazing food for the price, great environment

I went for a late lunch with a group of 5. We had a great time and everyone enjoyed their food. It's a great find with totally reasonable prices. Check it out - you'll be glad you did!

We like to stop by the Tip Top when we're in Columbus for work. It's walkable from many of the downtown hotels and they've got a very inexpensive menu, with lots of good choices. The Tip Top has a really cozy, intimate atmosphere inside and a nice patio outside during the summer months. The food, while really inexpensive, is so... More

Tip Top is great. I think their rotation of beer choices is the best. They always have different craft beer on tap! Also, the Pot Roast Sandwich with a slice of ghost pepper cheese is the way to go!

Did lunch here last week and it worked well. Not fancy food, but it works, especially if you have a booth, can talk, "take care of business", etc.

Good cocktails, nice beer list, and the food is on par. The best part about this place is the great service and intimate atmosphere. Perfect for hanging out with small groups of friends when you actually want to hear the conversation.

The atmosphere is very much that of a tavern. The food is definitely a few steps above bar food. The pot roast was outstanding! They always have a great beer selection including many of Ohio's best. Donald was an excellent server - attentive without being over the top, very personable, and he knew the menu as if he had written... More

Made to order, tasty food. Good variety and reasonably priced. Good portion size. Especially for comfort food they take it easy of the salt. Very good but unusual chicken corn chowder - heavy on the curry?

Stopped by Tip Top for dinner before a show and was pleasantly surprised! It's a great place to stop for some appetizers and drinks, especially for happy hour. The sweet potato fries and spicy mayo appetizer was yummy!
