“consistent with an urban vibe”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

A place like the tip top might not be that interesting to folks from NYC, where there are lots of locally owned, urban themed restaurants with consistently good food at fair prices. But in suburbia and rural America they are few and fair between. Between the painted concrete floors, high ceilings with exposed ducts, lots of glass and being housed in an uber-cool old bakery building filled with active artists, it's really pretty unique. I particularly like walking the halls after dinner- how much more intreresting than walking out into a strip mall parking lot!

the menu is fairly limited and there are not a lot of vegetarian options. The presentation is excellent and many of the sides are really creative and unique. It's officially "American" food, but it's too simple to call it that.

“One of the Upper Valley's Most Consistently Good Restaurants”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Every meal I've ever had at Tip Top has made me want to come back for more. A pleasant space, great service and consistently good food without being pretentious is an awesome combination.

“Half Way Between Hartford and Great Places (I-91 Exit 11)”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Don't be confused by the highway spaghetti of White River Junction. Get off at Exit 11 and go toward town on Main Street. It's about three miles on your left as you enter the downtown area.

Great menu and great food.

Allow the time it deserves.

No draft beer, but a good selection of local and craft bottled brews.

“Very creative”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We were so impressed by the service and the creative items on the menu. I tried their nightly special of chilled scallops, and it was wonderful. This would be a great place to visit on a daily basis just to try their specials. Wish we had a Tip Top Café at home.
