We had a large group and we were treated great! They seated us together. the staff was very friendly- we were the 2nd group at lunch that day. Lunch was very good. The salads and soups were delicious.

The King was famously congenial and polite. I spent 90 minutes sitting in this local watering hole without being offered a menu, a glass of water, or even "hello." The waitresses trotted around the whole time, chatting and dancing to the music. It was VERY busy (Elvis fest in town) but there was a full staff available. I was holding... More

Tipsy's is good bar food. The staff is friendly and hospitable. It might not be the place to choose if you're in a hurry but that's part of its personality. This is one of the few places in town that will actually deliver a hamburger to your table properly cooked medium rare. Over time, my visits to Tipsy's have proven... More

We stopped in for lunch during the Christmas tour of homes when they were very busy and we were treated very well. Our food arrived fresh, hot and delicious and the staff was wonderful. I would recommend anyone drop in for a delicious appetizer, salad, sandwich or entree. I have eaten here several times and have not been disappointed yet.

After a long Fat Tuesday drive from SW Florida we arrived a little after 9p. Our server (Hali) told us that the grill closed at 9p but that we could order anything from the fryer. They were open until 2a. We asked if there were other options in Brunswick for food at that late hour and she asked the owner... More

This is truely the neighborhood bar and grill. From the craft taps that don't have the regular crap to the excellent service you get from every single staff member(top to bottom). I always enjoy a fresh new cocktail or the beers of the week and never feel rushed or unwelcomed. The food is to die for I really like the... More

Bartender was very attentive and personable. Buffalo chicken chips were yummy. Drinks very good and not super crowded when we went so sat right at the bar

We have been to Tipsy McSways several times and have enjoyed the experience. The food is usually good, and although the service can be slow, we have never had a problem until our last visit. The restaurant has a couple of tables out front so that customers can eat outside if they prefer. We observed a cat eating on top... More

Friendly wait staff, beers that change often (along with the regular listing) and fresh, tasty food with daily specials.....what's not to love? Late afternoons here are fun as many locals stop by routinely...and there is happy hour pricing. Pricing overall is very reasonable. Only negative of the entire place is when there is live music and a crowd....acoustics aren't good... More
