“Uneven”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

The food is uneven, as in sometimes it is good, sometimes not as good. The barbeque sandwich plate with fries is good, the enchiladas are small and bland. Atmosphere is pub-like, even moreso in evening.

“Great little hangout place”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

This is a really cute little restaurant on main street. Has a bar area and sometimes has live music. We love their Fish and Chips and burritos. They also have barbecue, burgers, and salads. Very reasonably priced.

“Good food, good value”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

Right on Main St and perfect for a meal or an appetizer and a cold drink. Had the BBQ and it was very good and served with their own sauce. Meat was piled high, and served with slaw and chips.........service was "mountain" friendly and just an all round good place to get off your feet, rest and have a bite to eat.

“You Need A Place Like This”
Reviewed March 20, 2012

Is it a bar? Or, is it a restaurant? It's both and more. We went into the Tipping Point for an after dinner drink. Within 20 minutes, I thought they would ask us to join their softball team, they were so friendly. They have a very decent selection of beer, wines, and drinks. And all of the food I saw being brought out of the kitchen looked great. Later in the weekend (on St. Patrick's Day) we stopped in during the early evening and had a blast. There was an Irish band and an Irish menu. The bangers and mash, and the corned beef and cabbage were very tasty. You don't have to be a local to walk in, but after a few minutes you'll feel like one. Great place.

“Good Food, Great Service”
Reviewed February 25, 2012

Our first visit was just short of spectacular when they had a ribeye salad that was outstanding. Burgers were very good. Tacos decent. Grilled corn is to die for. But, the service is always even better than the food. Decor is kind of funky cool for a neighborhood bar. Can't go wrong here.
