Lips is a really fun place. If you are offended by drag queens or just easily offended, this is not the place for you. If however you like to have fun, the queens at Lips will have you laughing until your sides hurt. Obviously the entertainment is very funny. They make a big deal about anyone there to celebrate anything... More

If you are thinking of going to Lips for a night out you won't be disappointed. The entertainment value alone was worth every penny and more. I honestly can't think of a better dinner show that we have ever been to, I laughed so much my cheeks hurt for 2 days after. I can't say enough how much I think... More

Came to Lips to celebrate my mom's birthday and retirement. The dining room/seating area is small so there is not a bad seat in the house. The food was ok...but who really comes here for the food??? You come for the entertainment...and entertaining it was! We would all come back!

This was my first time going to a drag show and it was awesome. It was hilarious and a lot of the performers had great showmanship as they sang and danced around the stage. The host of the evening had great one-liners and knew how to tease and poke fun at the crowd. The food was average but the environment... More

Had a great time for girls night out. Paris was awesome. Definitely not for a younger audience. We've been twice and it never disappoints

This is the first time I've been here and I had a fantastic time. We went on a Sunday and I had the Chicken Ceasar salad and it was good. Everyone else at our table seemed to enjoy their meal. Reservations are best. When you enter, go up to the bar, grab either a champagne, Bloody Mary or mimosa. That... More

What a surprising brunch this was! The girls were HILARIOUS! I visited Lips on a Sunday and was thrilled to find bottomless mimosas and a fantastic meal. My surprise did not end here! The cast was made up of an extremely talented entourage of sassy, glamorous, and just plane fierce performers. They also rocked as servers while dancing their butts... More

We had a bachelor party here and I was amazed at the drag performances! Performers stayed in character, and went all out to put on a good show. I had a stuffed chicken plate that was to die for and all 20-30 of us agreed the food was delicious!
