We visited on a Saturday evening around 9 PM with a group of 16 people. We were sat within 15 minutes. The service was outstanding and the food was very good. Corn beef and cabbage was exceptional… Particularly the mashed potatoes. Most beers on draft are of British origin but great selection of bottled beer. Most of our group had... More

My husband and I stopped here for dinner on a Saturday night. The restaurant was packed. We were seated in the back at a high top for two. There really isn't a bad seat in this restaurant. It is the epitome of my view of an English pub - lots of wood and a warm cozy atmosphere. They have a... More

Nice local pub atmosphere; dates from 1850s. What most local bars used to be before the advent of chains. OK menu. Wings were good. Most sandwiches in the $12 plus range. Went with next door neighbors. He loved his fish & chips ($14). Ladies got what was advertised as Caesar salad with Brussels sprouts & sausage. Salads came with no... More

We have now been to Quips several times as both a couple and with family. We were pleasantly surprise each time, but the warmth of this traditional English Pub, with very good food and a friendly staff. The traditional fare is excellent but specials such as the Irish Stew on St. Pats, was exceptional

Love this little pub. Authentic British style and feel. Cozy and warm and while they have sports on tv not at all intrusive. Highly recommend for a pint and fish & chips

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
