Last night, a group of friends went to dinner and a show. We made reservations and made sure to peruse the website for detailed info on pricing, showtimes, and customer expectations. The food was delicious, and even with a set menu, there were plenty of choices. I ordered lasagna and my husband ordered the lobster ravioli, and both were superb!!... More

What a fun night! Loved the entertainment. The show was amazing! They girls really make sure they get to know every table and incorporate it in their show. It's not a huge space which is nice, so you get a closer feel. The food I could leave but that wasn't the reason we went anyway. We really enjoyed ourselves.

You know what to expect, DRAG all the way from the Hostess to the hatcheck girl. Noisy, boisterous and sometimes downright loud. The food is a bit like La Cage, I.e., not great but the ambiance is kitschy nightclub and the staff as flirtatious and sometimes as off color as you'd want. Entertainment is pretty good and occasionally very good,... More

Patrons should call 24 hours in advance to reserve seats @ tables. Entertainers visit patrons @ tables who wave tips. Otherwise, patrons sitting @ the bar can hand tips to bartender or server to tip entertainers. There is different theme every night; cover charge & minimum $15.00 of food items. We spent $94.29 between 3 people; ordered Asian pot stickers,... More

I have been to various shows here but this is my first review. Last couple of times here, I was impressed with the quality of food for a "dinner theater". Unfortunately, last night the food was of poor quality. Went with a group of six and we all had the prix fixe dinners. I had the grilled chicken with rice... More

Lips is Oakland Park, Fort Lauderdale offers live entertainment. The performers as drag queens and they also double as the wait staff. I attended a birthday party (23 people) for a friend and found the experience very disappointing after hearing so much about the place. At this point, I believe they are operating solely on their reputation, nothing else. Our... More

Everything was okay until we got the bill. We were severely overcharged and the drag queen server had no idea how to do math. As if that wasn't bad enough she came after us accusing us of not tipping her. She chased us all the way to the hostess stand and called us out in front of a crowd. This... More

My family and I visited Lip's to experience their dinner show. They did not disappoint. We had a great evening with a small group, the food was good and hot and the cocktails were fun. My husband refused to order his drink, so I had too... I'll leave that to your imagination.

You can have a fun dinner, but be prepared for a hefty check! Definitely a good place for larger groups.

My seared tuna was fresh and delicious. Pot stickers so so. Generous sized and delicious Caprese salad The side dishes were perfectly prepared as was the entertainment. All very yummy! Highly professional combination of "Waitress/Actress" staff. I had a blast!
