Tried to get in last weekend and there was over an hour wait so we figured it must be great! Decided to come back another time. That was last night. The variety of food we ate was pretty extensive, fried stuffed jalapenos, chicken wings, burrito, roasted brussel sprouts, pork sandwich and chicken tacos. Yup - all from the same menu.... More

We wanted to sample their beer and eat some lunch at Tipping Point! The pub fare was very good, the beer was also very good and the people were very friendly and their service was very good! Would recommend this tavern for brews and pub food while in town. Enjoy!

Enjoy eating here always. The food is consistently good. We started out to eat at another restaurant that had just relocated to Main Street and left because they were out of most of the things we wanted and went to tipping point. Service was excellent as was the food. We should have gone there first!

The server/bartender was excellent and really made us feel welcome. The food was good...nothing to get too excited about. But again the service was so good it made for a great lunch.

Wife and I spent time here and at Boojums. Both places have a good beer selection. Did not eat here so cannot comment. Has a different vibe and feel from Boojums, kind of hippyish.

We went on a date night here looking for fun and good food. The hot wings were great! We had the buffalo and it had a nice spice with a little bit of sweet flavor. Our service was a little slow but not bad. Would go again!
