We loved our dinner at Tippy's. The location is great - right on the beach with a nice deck and view. The crowd was fun and relaxed. We had the seafood bouillabaisse and Mahi mahi - both good, the fish was a little dry. The prices are a bit expensive. We had grouper at Bucaneer for 30% / $10 less... More

The owner walked by us several times b4 we were served a drink at the bar. I had to gesture to him that we would like service. NO..Hello or I'll be with you in a minute & not even a smile! We sure won't be coming back when we're on the island. Go to the Buccanner instead...lovely atmosphere and friendly... More

When you're in a small town and your hotel restaurant is closed b/c it's behind schedule on remodeling (lame), you wind up going to the same place more than once. Enter Tippy's, another tourist and ex-pat haunt that I found myself eating at here on Eleuthera. The first time I went, I had grilled Mahi-Mahi from the specials menu and... More

I can't say enough to express how Tippy's made my Honeymoon amazing. The food was outstanding as well as the service. Chef David outdid himself every night. Rose was often our waitress and did an excellent job as well as everyone else. Elliot made everyone feel like it was there home away from home. The bar selection was also above... More

No trip is complete without multiple nights with Elliott at Tippys. The food menu had meat, fish and local favorites

Very mixed feelings about Tippy's - we had a large group and everyone raved about their food and cocktails. (Bahamian Bouillabaisse was AMAZING) The waitstaff was not very friendly, and they refused to split our bill, ( we were several couples/families) so it created a sour feeling among us all as we had to do all the calculations after having...

We have dined here many times over the years, and Tippy's can't be beat for ambiance (right on the ocean, decorated with random cool accents) and the food selection and quality. We had fresh fish one night and pizzas with salads another. We also had lunch of grouper tacos which were quite tasty as well. Service was friendly, efficient and... More

I studied about what places to go eat on Eleuthera and Tippy's seemed to always be at the top of the list. So it is off season and they have just re-opened, This is a nice place. The food is good. Love their conch fritters. It has a fantastic location! The drinks were weak. Not worth the money. Also the... More
