About Us

Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

Welcome to Tip Top Tavern, a historical establishment with a rich legacy in San Lorenzo!


Established in 1949, our roots trace back to a humble fish market that transformed into a beloved bar in the 1940s known as the Usher Inn. In 2016, under new ownership and management, we embarked on an exciting journey to revitalize this iconic spot. This transformation not only involved a change in name but also a complete interior makeover, including the reintroduction of a kitchen for serving hot and delicious foods.


Our History

The story of Tip Top is one of evolution and adaptation. What once began as a place to buy fresh fish has evolved into a cherished local institution where people gather to celebrate sports, savor delectable dishes, and enjoy each other's company. Over the years, we've retained the charm and character of our historical roots while embracing the modern amenities that make us a premier destination for sports enthusiasts and food lovers alike.
