Arrive early, great location, fun staff, delicious island fare and yum yum beverages. Priced right. Add to the top of your ‘to-do’ list. One of my favorites on the Island🇧🇸😎👍🌴

We had a large group that had just arrived on the island wanting to eat at the tail end of their lunch service. As was our experience, the staff was super friendly the service was exceptional, the view from our table was gorgeous and the...food was sublime. Sip Sip is a must must if you get to be so fortunate to visit the fabulous Harbour Island!More

Sip Sip is only open from 11:30am to 4p but a must for lunch. Lobster quesadillas are fantastic and the ocean view is fabulous! Get there by 11:30am to beat the crowd!

My husband ordered the fried fish sandwich and he said it was one of the best ones he has ever had. The service was great and will help you order. Most people were ordering jalapeño margaritas and lobster quesadillas around us which looked amazing.

Another hidden gem. Ask directions and drive towards the pink sand beaches. Near the coral beach hotel. Not open everyday. So call ahead. Great views. Lunch and dinner. Excellent cocktails. Very beach. Order the special of the day. Have fun. @nickellfamilytravel

This is "the" spot to enjoy lunch when on Harbor Island. We walked up the steps from the beach to find a lively lunch crew. The wait can be long but the drinks and food are delicious. The burgers and fried fish sandwiches will leave...you craving more. And the rum drinks are so delicious. How do they go down so quickly? We will be back!More

Dear PA Family! Your review summed up what we strive for every day: a happy lunch! Thank you for letting others know that tables can be hard-won. As we only serve lunch, and don’t take reservations, it pays off to be in the first 70...More

Yes it’s that good. It was closed for all but the last day we were there. The food, service, atmosphere and drinks were all perfect. The jerked burger was wonderful. Keep in mind the lobster quesadilla has a lot of cheese and very heavy for...a beach lunch but oh so good. Keep up the great work.More

First place we ate on the island. As advertised the Lobster Quesa was great. Sharable dish for sure. Jalapeño Margs were great with a big kick. Popular place and was crowded well after normal lunch rush when we arrived. Make sure you hit this for...lunch one day.More

Hi Anna, Happy you enjoyed the fresh watermelon-vodka cooler, but for the recipe, you'll have to wait for the Sip Sip cookbook! Hopefully coming out later this year! Best Julie
