We were told to try Sips by an Island local and we were not disappointed. We stopped in for lunch and enjoyed it. My husband had the best Bloody Mary. We would definitely go back.

This lively and friendly neighborhood restaurant turns out good local food, sometimes there is live music. Some tables are very small, but at least you have a table! There is a bar too.
