My husband chose Quips for his birthday dinner with friends because we love the food, drinks and service. My husband and I got the fish tacos which are made with their famous beer battered fish, served in a large flour tortilla with a delicious spicy sauce, pickled onions, lettuce, and cheese with salsa on the side. An order comes with... More

I had to convince my wife to give Quips a try, but she really enjoyed it once we got inside. The Fish & Chips were at least as good as what we had in London. My wife loved the decor., and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. She raved about the tea mugs.

We had good dinner and drinks here. This place is steep for food and drinks. There is table and bar seating. This is such a quaint little place. It has pictures and posters on the walls and definitely checkout the ceiling. There are British signs all around which are humorous. We even played darts. My husband enjoyed his beer and... More

We got here and couldn't find a parking place. We went in and stood in the doorway for 20 minutes before a hostess noticed us. There were tables all over that were empty, yet she told us she had to clean some before she seated us.. We waited for our waitress to take our drink orders for another 10 minutes... More

It's located in a beautiful historic house and the inside is an authentic British pub. The food is very good and the service is attentive. We've been here a couple of times and hope to return!

Great custom cocktails and British pub ambience. But Yikes! While the food was exquisite,tasty and priced right, the service was slow slow slow. Our nacho appetizers were in the broiler/ oven way longer than need be. Entrees came finally and in stages. Second round of drinks was eventually offered long after we finished eating. I was thinking that during Restaurant... More
