“NEEDS LOTS OF IMPROVEMENT”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

Tipsy Mcsways has a interesting décor and over all is a cute place. However my friends and I went there last weekend about 1 pm on Saturday 6/23/12. The Waiter who looked like he had just rolled out of bed with dirty blue jeans wearing a ½ cocked hat and spots on his shirt was terrible. I understand the concept of casual dining but this is carrying it way too far. Other servers didn’t appear to look so nasty. The food was not very good either; it took nearly 40 mins to get a Burger and a Turkey sandwich and couple of salads . The fries and onion rings were both cold and the onion rings were so greasy they weren’t eatable. We spoke to the table next to us and their opinion about the place was very similar to ours not very good and way over priced for the quality of food . First impressions are very important when it comes to food establishments and ours was not good at all. On a scale of 1 to 10 we would rate this as a 3 at most for food and probably a 7 for décor and overall experience as a 5 for value. I doubt that any one amongst our group would return unless there are some major improvements

Went for dinner. Waited over 5 minutes for service. Food was horrible. Service was horrible when we did receive service. Would not recommend to anyone.

“Nice staff but slow service and awful food.”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

My wife and I went to Tipsy's for dinner with friends who chose it. The menu has very few decent options and the food was mediocre at best. My wife felt her burger was inedible. On a positive note she did enjoy her glass of Merlot. The kitchen was very slow with our food being served 50 minutes after was ordered. We both felt it was among the worst five dining experiences of our lives. We would never go back. A better option in Brunswick would be Indigo for about the same money. A similar but better menu, with faster service, would be at Brogen's two locations on Saint Simons Island.

“Great bar!”

Chips were too greasy. Hamburger was good. Cute inside and outside seats available too. Liked that it's down town.

“Fun place with creative food.”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

This is a beautifully-designed restaurant with a curved concrete bar with crushed glass in it, a place for a live band, and windows all around facing the park. You can eat outside on the main drag and people-watch. As a vegetarian, I am greeted with many options like a falafel in flat bread with cucumbers and sauce and a really good veggie burger. And the bartenders make a mean Cosmo! Family-friendly and reasonably priced, it's a hometown favorite!
