Reviewed October 9, 2013

A really good brew pub with a fun atmosphere and good service. Be sure to try the house-brewed beers.

“Lively place with Good Beer”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

This is a great place for a guy by himself to sit at the bar, order dinner and a beer and enjoy a game. They have a good selection of local beers on tap and good value

“Better for Lunch”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Tipping Point Tavern was a fun place to visit. Their in-house brews are quite good. We tried both the “Hiking Viking” (my high school mascot was a Viking) and the “Chunky Girl Amber.” They also have an IPA called “Punch in the Face IPA.” We found the brews quite hoppy, so we can imagine what the IPA must be. Next time…

We had both a lunch and a dinner at Tipping Point Tavern. Lunch was quite enjoyable. The food was quite good – can’t say “great” with regard to sandwiches and beer, but very good. We started with the beer-battered jalapeno poppers which were hot from the fryer and had very good flavor. I had the Tavern Reuben and really enjoyed it. Jim had Fish Tacos. I must say, you really shouldn’t be leaving Tipping Point hungry! They don’t skimp on portions!

Dinner was something of a different story. This is why I marked only "Average." Yes, the portions were huge (especially the Pulled Pork Burrito)! What was really off-putting was the noise level. We were there on a Wednesday night, so we didn’t expect the crush of people or the noise. Obviously, this is the place for the younger crowd to meet for drinks after work. If we’d been there just for a beer or cocktails (and had been several years younger), we probably would have had a wonderful time. For dinner, well it was rather hard to enjoy ourselves. If you go, it’s probably wise to stick to lunch, or go for their terrific beer and after-work party.

“OKAY”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

The Tipping Point is right in the middle of downtown and has outdoor seating for some excellent people watching. The bar has a cheerful and British ambiance about it.
The place is very clean and the bathroom was spotless (which usually means the kitchen is too).
We both got the fish n chips with fries and slaw along with some tasty cold micro brew.
The fish was almost burnt but being hungry and in a hurry we went ahead and wolfed it down and finished it off with some good beer.
Our server was very polite and personable and she told us about several other nearby restaurants we might want to visit during our stay.
We plan on returning next week and give it another try.

“first time~~~maybe last?”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

I had heard pretty good things about the Tipping Point so I stopped by today for lunch. Must have had a new waitress or my expectations of good service compared to others who have reviewed are very different . Had to finally ask if we could please order. The waitress brought a small bowl of regular chips and said sorry you had to wait this will tie you over! The food was okay. The restaurant wasn't busy so I don't think I would want to go back when they are busy! Wish I could have given a excellent review but can't honestly say anything nice except they have a 100% sanitation grade!
