A bar w some bar food, not really a restaurant. Intended more for drinkers than diners but gets a lot of local patronage and by all accounts not too shabby. A popular spot during downtown Brunswick First Friday celebrations.

A really neat place to get a beer and a different type of sandwich. But they do have the old standbys too. Music on the weekend. In the historic district and a neat old building itself

6 of us decided to visit Tipsy's and had a great evening. Susan was a delight, the food and drink delicious. The atmosphere is fun and casual... well worth the drive from St Simons back to the mainland for the evening.

Ordered burger and fries; nothing special; not sure why service was slow; parking good; atmosphere ok; I guess it's always good to give it another try; not sure when.

This is the lunch spot when I am in downtown Brunswick. Nice atmosphere, great service, very good bar, and cold drinks. You cannot ask for much more.

Food, drink and staff are all excellent in a beautiful area of downtown Brunswick, GA. The Tipsy Burger is the best around, worth leaving Saint Simons or Jekyll Islands for lunch or dinner! Walk the exciting vibe happening on Newcastle St. Shops, galleries and coming...More
