I was expecting a seafood laden menu. It wasn't and I ultimately had a pasta dish with seafood. My dinner was ok. Nothing to write home about and nothing to complain about. I also ordered the conch fritters and they were the same. I ordered...More

We ate here twice while on our honeymoon and the atmosphere and food was excellent!! I got the lobster and it was the best I've EVER had. Recommend making a reservation if you plan on going at 7 or later! It gets busy.

Having dinner at sunset is a wonderful experience. The folks at tippy's made us feel very welcome, and carrying an easel with the menu written in chalk adds to the fun of the environment. We enjoyed local seafood dishes of grouper and conch that were...More

Ate at Tippy's for dinner. Had a nice selection of food and it was well prepared. Definitely worth a visit if near governor's harbor.

I love the ambience at Tippy's. It's a relaxing place whether seated on the bar side or the dining side of this small eatery with a lovely deck especially at sunset. I ate here twice, and the first night was a ten. The next night...More

I was at Tippy's last about February 28. I recall music 2 nights a week, but not Friday and Saturday. Call them to be sure which nights; they are very friendly.
