We were travelling and stopped for an evening meal. We weren't sure what to expect when we went into the restaurant. The food was very good and very tasty and the server was very friendly but not over the top. Would definitely recommend Tiptop restaurant.

This was our first time visiting this restaurant. My son lives in Charlottesville and we came up from Hickory, NC to help him move in to his new townhouse. He had heard that Tip Top was a great place to eat, so we decided to have breakfast there. The reviews from his friends were accurate! This was a WONDERFUL place... More

During a business engagement, I ate lunch at Tip Top twice. The service was excellent and FAST. The food was very good comfort food. I cleaned my plate!! Based on the lunch and the menu, I think they would be a great breakfast choice as well. The only challenge was turning left onto Richmond road to get back to the... More

Visited this restaurant for breakfast during a business trip. The service was perfect! The western omelet I had was full of flavor. Excellent experience.

Great family owned and run diner with American and Greek inspired food. Come early to get a table as it's one of the busiest restaurants in town. They do a good job getting you seated and served. Breakfast served all day long.

Every time we visit Charlottesville we always make it a point to eat at Tip Top. It's not fancy, for sure. The service and decor are basic in every way. But, the food is usually very good, and the prices are outstanding. They have a nice selection of pasta dishes, and I usually get one of the baked pasta dishes.... More

Some friends and I dined here on Sunday at the recommendation of a local shop owner. When we arrived at 1:45, the restaurant was extremely busy, so we figured we picked the right spot. We were seated quickly, and our waitress seemed pretty rushed when she blew passed our table and asked what we'd like to drink, never allowing us... More

We stopped by for dinner to visit a local restaurant on our way thru town. Food was very good, service was excellent, price wasn't bad. I'd stop here again.

Large Greek Diner menu. Just about anything you would want. We ordered a variety to take out. All was good. Calamari often gets soggy as a takeout. But theirs was about the most tender I've had. It was quite busy on Friday night, but those waiting didn't seem to wait long, but parking seemed almost full.

But they don't just have Greek food, they serve breakfast all day and have great pizza as well! I used to work close to Tip Top, so I haven't eaten there much lately, but it is great!

Thank PSJohnston
