“Tippy's never disappoints”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

There simply is no other place for a lunch or dinner that has the quality of food and service as Tippy's if your anywhere near central Eleuthera. Located on the Atlantic side of Governor's Harbour it's location right on the ocean and a spectacular beach set the mood for both indulgence and a relaxed island time pace. If you love grouper, hogfish, or tuna you'll eat there every night (as I almost do). They also have pasta dishes, BBQ, steak & chicken as well. The prices are completely appropriate for the quality of the meals and the drinks, beer and wine selections are plentiful. If you're on a tight budget you might want to split a dish. Don't miss Saturday night when Elliot, who normally bartends, gets his reggae on and sings up a storm with the band. If you plan on dining on a weekend during a busy time of the season make a reservation.

“Take the Good with the Bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We ate at Tippy's two nights in a row. The 1st night there was clearly something going on. The bartenders were welcoming and upbeat but the grumpy Austrian who we 'assume' was Tippy or at least the owner was a serious downer and mood killer. He was clearly unhappy about something.

The food was good but the prices are high and the drinks can be watery if you go with one of their mixed concoctions. Stay away from the Mohito's as they are more syrupy than alcoholic.

The second night was better as far as atmosphere goes. The live music was late but when is live music ever on time, especially on an island! Once again the food was good and plentiful but compared to the prices there are better places to visit. The view is hard to beat.

All in all, a good place to visit if you have the coin and catch the owner on a good night. Also, bring bug spray or apply liberally before arriving.

“great escape...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Tippy's is a great escape into one of the place that locals (the expats) go to...such a funky and fun place with good food (great pizza), cold beers and a nice ambiance.

Remember it's Island time...so relax, have a beer and enjoy!

“Best restaurant of the trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Tippy's was the best restaurant we ate at on our short trip to Eleuthera. It was not the cheapest. It was not the most local. But it was the best. As we were only in Eleuthera for a 4 day visit, we didn't have the opportunity to try all the recommended restaurants. The Pros: Great fresh fish. We had grouper and Mutton snapper. Very fresh and wonderful flavors. Good conch fritters. The Mango sorbet my son had for dessert lasted him for 4 days on the trip - it was so big we took it back to Pineapple Fields and he ate some every day for the rest of the trip! The Cons: (The only reasons I gave this place 4 stars instead of 5) I was unimpressed with the drinks at the bar. The punches and specialty drinks were not made from fresh juices. Just right out of cans. The number one rum punch still goes to Sunshines in Nevis! Final note: The bugs are wicked. Keep in mind, we were there in mid-August without much of an ocean breeze. Put on lots of good bug spray and forget about it. There is also bug spray at the restaurant if you forget. This is outside. Be prepared...
