A Garifuno drum group with dancers ranging in age from... More

You're going to this bar for the atmosphere which has a fun margaritaville vibe. I think they have a DJ at night though. The food was meh and my pina colada was less than delicious for a place that specializes in them.

Tipsy Tuna is a great spot for lunch. Good food. Good drinks. Great view! If you don't like loud music, don't go in the evenings. Late morning/early afternoon is a great time for those of us who like a beautiful space to visit with good friends.

The Tipsy Tuna is a fun place to hang out, have some dollar wings (50 US cents) and enjoy Garifuna Drummers on Wednesdays. It's a colorful place that attracts some colorful people. We met some friends with kids, so we left early in the evening as it gets a bit wild for kids... Being a bar, and all.

Have visited multiple times over the past 3 years, and we keep coming back. Service is quick and attentive, food quality and value is good, usually some pretty good people watching too. Always enjoy a laid back meal and drinks here. Will keep coming back for years to come.

My boyfriend and I went to the Tipsy Tuna to watch the Super Bowl. Thankfully we got there as early as we did because it was a packed house before we knew it. We stayed up until halftime so we were able to try quite a few drinks, the chicken nachos (I totally recommend) and an order of chicken tenders.... More
