We had our 20th anniversary dinner at Tippy's, The dinner was wonderful with an incredible view. The Chef is great and Big E the owner is a hoot :) BTW, you can also rent a car from Big E and his service is great

We were advised to eat here and are thankful we did. Very affordable meal, quick and attentive service, and very nice atmosphere. Don't miss this place on the island when you visit!

Great food and amazing view! I stay at Pineapple Fields a lot when traveling to Eleuthera, and Tippy's has to be my favorite place to eat and relax. The menu changes often, but the food is always on point.

I already wrote 2 reviews about Tippy's, but I absolutely wanted to write another one to insist on the high quality of food there is at Tippy's. My husband and I now live on the island, so we have tried many restaurants already and decided that Tippy's is the best and REALLY worth it! So we are used to going... More

We ordered a garlic shrimp appetizer and fresh catch of the day followed by key lime pie dessert and ice cream. Every dish was amazing. The location is great too, right by the ocean

Entering the premises you start to unwind and are fortunate to be welcomed by the warm, exuberant Eliot, who is both bartender and manager. Then it's kudos to the chef for his delicious island Bouillabaisse, which was quite generous in portion and had my husband licking his fingers. I went with the succulent hog snapper cooked to perfection. Also you... More

Great for lunch or dinner with live music each Saturday night featuring Rake n Scrape, classics and reggae. Fresh seafood, Bahamian classics (conch fritters), fresh pizzas, and amazing drinks. Friendly wait team.

Tippys is in a great location on Banks Rd, surrounded by a nice collection of rental properties. It has a beautiful ocean view and good snorkeling just off the beach. These are the positive things I can say. As many others have said, the service is a bit surly and indifferent. Not slow or rude, but they simply don't seem... More
