“Great place to unwind”
Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

Wonderful food, friendly staff, and clean dinning. Grab a glass of wine and bowl or soup and sit back and relax. make sure to save room for their chocolate mousse, it's to die for!

“Delicious, unique food.”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

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.

“Great Happy Hour”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

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.

“tasty, but slow”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

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.
