Atyipcal food for the locale (meaning that it wasn't focused heavily on seafood) and offered a wide range of options. Apple chevre (cheese) salad got 2 thumbs up as did the Mediterranean Haddock. Live music (blues/jazz band) was lots of fun. We weren't rushed from our table by the staff when the band started and our meals were finished. Service is a little on the slow side so enjoy a relaxing, no-rush atmosphere and terrific, quality food.

Sips is a nice place. We did not partake of the coffee, but everything smelled great. Their happy hour is from 4-6 and all drinks except for bottles of wine are half price. They have a unique beer selection with beers from around the world, most of them I'd never heard of. Beers are normally 4-5 dollars each at regular price, so happy hour is quite the deal. We also did a couple of small plates. The scallop skewer is outstanding, though a little steep at $12. The lamb chop had some great greens and cheese with it and was excellent as well, though steep again at $12. With the beer value, the small plates were well worth the splurge. We went in three nights in a role and had a great time each night. Thanks to Shane for the outstanding service.

Veggie club was good. Crepes too. Hummus and pita chips are great. Prompt and friendly service. Nice decor.

Had dinner here with friends. Thought it was a bit pricey. Very good service - slow, but that was okay with us. Steak eaters enjoyed their filets, fish and pasta eaters were happy. Desserts were tasty ( fruit cobbler, chocolate torte). The place wasn't full, but it was very noisy - there doesn't seem to be much to deaden the sound: lots of wood.

The only reason I did not rate this five stars is because the service is somewhat slow. We stopped in here for lunch after hiking Mt. Mansell and were surprised at how long it took for our food to arrive (and there weren't too many others in the restaurant.) That being said, the food was terrific. I can only imagine how nice this establishment would be for dinner. Very impressive wine list.
