Ranked more or less high by tripadvisor, we were disappointed. We went there twice during our almost 2 week stay on Eleuthera. During the daytime you can enjoy the beautiful location directly on the beach. Having a cold Kalik overlocking the ocean, gives you a real Bahama feeling. If you go there for dinner expecting the same experience, you might... More

Yes, it's busy. Yes, you likely need a reservation. Yes, the staff can appear harried when it's crowded. Is it the best food on the island? Debatable, but it's worth the wait and your time. The menu is varied, so there's something for everyone, even the kids. It's the seafood where Tippy's really shines. They're not afraid of bold flavors... More

Right across the street from Pineapple Fields hotel and condos, where we highly recommend that you stay. But Tippy's is a destination unto itself. Great food and drink, and right on a gorgeous pink sand beach. Can't get much better than that. Don't forget to get reservations though. Like any great place, it fills up quickly, every day of the...

The staff were nice but the owner (large Austrian man) was so incredibly unfriendly and rude that it made us write this review...food was ok, can't beat the views, live music was great, but unbelievably expensive and an owner that I never want to give another dollar to.

First of all the location of Tippys is wonderful! The beach alone is worth going, but when you get hungry from all your fun in the sun this is the place to go! My only issue is it is a bit expensive, I had the hummus pits and it was $18.50...so know you will spend a fair bit to get... More

We had dinner at Tippy's for our last night on the island. We ordered: chicken salad, grouper dinner, fish and chips(grouper) and pasta for my son. The pasta was undercooked and removed from our bill(we didn't even have to ask for this and this was greatly appreciated). The selection of food was great as well. The server didn't seem to... More

Typical restaurant which has a great chef, Eric, with a nice location, which attracts lots of people, but with very poor service. The bar tender as well as most waitresses must change their job. We have really regreted to come there twice. The design is now really updated. It is really time for change...

The beach setting can't be beat and the food is amazing. The prices are high, but the food is unlike any other beach fare on the island. Special combinations and beautiful presentation of each plate makes this an extraordinary stop on your next vacation.
