“Sand trap....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We were told to go there for "one of the greatest beach bar in the world" (USA Today), i will cut it short : Don't ! this is a very mediocre place by all standards, my girlfriend ordered a mixed salad with goat cheese croutons, and it was soggy and warm, as far as myself i ordered the grouper tacos (a real staple in this island) and was served a mixture of crabmeat and canned tuna...no jokes! i even almost broke a tooth on a piece of claw. it could have been good but please tell me you are out of grouper instead of trying to pull a quick one on a Hotel management school graduate...one salad, 2 tacos and one beer, 2 waters = $60... Not again, fix your kitchen for godsake and regain your title, it is most needed right now.

“High faluttin'”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

The wife and I had heard great things about the bar, so we stopped by one night after dinner in Gov Harbor, for a couple drinks. We were still in our beach clothes, we felt way underdressed. Everyone else was in pastels, polo shirts, sundresses, linen pants, etc... The bar tender seemed to be a nice guy, but paid more attention to the nice dressed folks. Tried to make small talk with him, but he was more interested in the other patrons that knew his name. He did make good drinks though. It was funny, our bill for 3 drinks was more than the dinner we had just had in town.

“Don't waste your time !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Very expensive - the one thing they have going for them is the view - drop by have a drink at most.
Don't waste you cash on Food - highly over rated - service is poor to terrible

“Skip Tippy's”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Skip going to Tippy's. Food okay but staff was very unfriendly. Go to the Beach House restaurant instead.

“Nice outlook but not special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The views out to the Atlantic are amazing from the restaurant, which sits right on the beach. We ate at sunset so it was particularly beautiful.

The food was decent but fairly standard Bahamian grub - conch fritters etc. All done to a good standard. The service was rapid, almost too quick with mains coming the second the starter plates were taken. We were in and out in about 45 mins.
