What a view! We knew the prices were higher because of the beautiful spot. Our food, fish tacos and a pizza were just okay. We enjoyed the setting and the people. We didn't overthink the the bill but we should have. I did look for an add service charge which was not listed but they did overcharge us $12. We... More

Everything on Eleuthera is expensive. Get over it. Tippy is right on the beach. It is adorable with a huge patio. The food is fine. It is typical of any beach bar fare. Everything tastes better with a little sand in your hair and salt baked on your skin. I recommend going here because the beach is beautiful, and you... More

Bar is fun, with Rake and Scrape music certain nights of the week too! Beautiful water view, with screens that open to a deck. Owner is a bit crabby, bartenders were great! Food was just fair

Good pizza, great atmosphere. Can't go to Eleuthera without visiting Tippy's at least once. Also, it sits on one of the best beaches on the island.

Love the location on the beach and the food is pretty good. Service can be very slow when busy. Be prepared to wait long for you bill. We waited over thirty minutes after asking for it a second time.

Four of us had a very good dinner here on Valentine's Day. The decor is Caribbean style, and the tables are quite close together, at least on a night when the place is packed. The atmosphere is pleasant and the servers, mostly young locals, are efficient, smiling, and unobtrusive. All four of us shared two orders of a fabulous first... More

You will have to search for Tippy's, but the pot of gold at the end of your rainbow will be worth it! Eight of us enjoyed a Tuesday night dinner there on a recent visit to Eleuthera Island. The coconut shrimp appetizer is enough to make an entree which is what two of our group did. The conch fritters were... More

We were staying at Pineapple Fields and we had planned on eating at Tippy's once or twice. We ate there EVERY night. Saturday night is amazing and is a unique opportunity to hear great music. This certainly made our trip to Eluthera special. The food is a little pricy, but you must realize you are on an island.

I was at this restaurant the day it opened and for many of my birthdays. It's just fantastic. I've met movie stars, a concert pianist and a cruise ship owner here. I've had meals all times of the day and they were perfection. Great local sea food and specialty items are flown in from the states. One birthday, the chef... More
