I have been hearing many things about the Tipper, both about the food and the live shows so I had to check it out. I have been twice now and I have had a good meal both times.
They have some wicked specials on Tuesdays where you get a burger with fries and a beer for ten bucks. The fries are fresh cut, and are very tasty. My friend commented three times on how much he liked the fries. The burger was also impressive. For the price, it was a great deal. For those who don't eat red meat you can sub your burger for the chicken burger (which I prefer). Because you get a burger, fries and beer for ten bucks I thought I would order a side soup ($2.99). The seafood chowder was fantastic. I know I am not alone on this but I rarely order soup because the value sucks. A small mug of liquid with vegetables, and meat that doesn't fill you up, even when its meal size, why bother. Banyan from Seinfeld was right, a soup is not a meal. Trust me, forget about how you feel about ordering soup at restaurants and order the seafood chowder here, it is definitely worth it.
Back to the Tipper. This part of Vancouver needs a place like the Tipper and the local population needs to support this establishment. There is a large backroom where they often have live theatrical performances, and live music shows. Food wise, the Tipper offers a great value and provides a great alternative for that area. The ten dollar chicken burger, fries and beer deal is fantastic.
