My husband and I took the kids here for some outdoor fun and post-week relaxation. This place definitely doesn't disappoint in that regard, however, the food is not great for those with special dietary considerations or a discerning palate. I wouldn't really categorize the menu as passable pub food and the servers do not know the difference between American and... More

I have been here a couple times now and each time has been a wonderful experience. The beer list is fantastic and so is the food. The service is always pleasant (if sometimes a touch slow). It's a bit lively, but that's what I love about it.

Went there with three adults and 2 kids. Sat inside because of the Alabama heat. Limited seating inside if you want a lower table for your kids. They have a few high top tables as well for adults. Menu is kind of limited but the food is really good and so is the beer list. Recommend if you take kids... More

Bottom line: parents, if you're looking for a place to grab a beer while the kids run their batteries down, this is your heaven! ACSC/SAASS/AWC students, have your first class mixer here! Good selection of beer, the food is a decent, but mostly southern, fare. The entire outdoor area has a waist high fence and a huge grassy mound. You... More

Although this is a full bar with a massive selection of beer it is family friendly. They have food that is very tasty and some desserts and drinks that can be enjoyed by those under age. The picnic tables outside are nice as well. If your looking for a place to wind down and just enjoy a good drink this... More

We sat outside and instantly our kids made friends with other diners children. They began running and playing while we enjoyed amazing pimento cheese and cocktails. where else can you find a dog and kid friendly restaurant in a laid back location and great price point and staff.

I moved to Montgomery 2 years ago for grad school, and the tipping point quickly became my favorite place to sit outside and have drinks, dinner, etc. with friends after a long week! It is hard to find a local spot in this town that isn't a chain, which is why we love it so much! Always a huge beer... More

I liked the atmosphere here - not stuffy and not crowded. It kind of matched the food. They give you just about the right amount and try to keep it light. Mixed with their beer, you feel much better about yourself! Their beer selection is good and their menu items are quite unique. There is plenty of space outside -... More

Visited Montgomery to see family over Thanksgiving. Went to Tipping Point for dinner the day after Thanksgiving with about 15 people. We ate outside, which worked well for the kids. Great play area for them - enjoyed by grandkids from ages 2-12. The food, drink and service were far better than you would expect in a place that has such... More

If you're looking for somewhere to drink a beer and watch the game, this place is acceptable. It's like a Starbucks with alcohol. They have a very limited menu for food items. They boast about their hotdogs however I did not find them great. The hotdogs we had were $7.50 and they did not come with sides. They were on... More

Thank you for your review! We have a very small kitchen, so you might not experience the vast food selection here that you might see at some chains. We are proud to offer over forty different menu items, with most items featuring delicious made in house components that you won't find anywhere else! We're sorry you were disappointed in our...
