I have eaten at The Tipper several times and the food, quality, cost, and service continues to blow me away each time I eat there. The menu is diverse, the ingredients are fresh and are bought locally, and the vegetarian owner is hands on and also concerned with the ethics of eating.
I don’t eat out often, but when I do, The Tipper often comes to mind. I really don’t think you can go wrong with anything you order off the menu.
In my opinion, the ambiance is like jazz bar meets local art gallery meets urban dining rolled into one. You have to see it to get exactly what I mean. And the irony that The Tipper is directly across the street from a MacDonald’s cannot be missed.
One thing that is unique about this restaurant is a back room which can be rented out at reasonable rates for a variety of functions.
