“Nippy's is a bite of fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012 via mobile

Atmosphere is the best around. Located in downtown Beaufort it's hopping and eclectic. Many different generations all laughing and having fun. The food is extremely authentic and real. The fish tacos are the best around. The french fries are so good that a child who won't eat anything will eat them. But the real winner is the shrimp dog. Real shrimp and fresh. They aren't always available but when they are you've got to grab them up. And don't just order one of anything, you are going to need at least 3 of any item because you are going to want to keep eating!

“Great food & fun atmosphere!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

Love the "baskets" of shrimp, flounder, fish tacos!!! Enjoy outdoor eating, nightly music, corn hole games & chats with lots of local and visitors! Service can be a little slow but, hey...think of it as island time & plan for it...everyone is so friendly that it's not a deterrent!

“Relaxed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

Having your expectations in the right place will prevent disappointments, no matter where you go. Nippy's is a great place for ice cold beer, live music, and a great inexpensive lunch. The shrimp sliders and blackend fish tacos are great! The atmosphere is very low key. Expect to sit outside and if you order food, you may have to swat a fly or two. In my opinion the good food and atmosphere are well worth it.

The owner makes the place. What a great lady. LOVED my shrimp slider and fish -n-chips (ate there twice!) and the shoestring fires were wonderful!

“Great little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012 via mobile

We happened across Nippys while out shopping. Great little dive. Food was great. We enjoyed sitting out listening to the band. Awesome find. Ever town needs a Nippys. Great little escape from reality with awesome food.
