Good value

I am not a big breakfast eater, but the buffet looked good. The 'skillets' are almost enough for two!! Easy and convenient for the family to grab a bite after a long day on the water. Reasonable prices.

Me and my family recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Beach Resort and had dinner at Riptides. We had a wonderful waitress named Angela who was so sweet and thorough, not to mention she gave us awesome service! We will request her again.

We had a very pleasant experience. The Key Lime Martini was simply the best. The wait staff was attentive and all the food, including the appetizers were spot on. The manager came over and asked how everthing was and he was truly concerned that our experience was pleasurable. I'd recommend Riptides.

Riptides is the best restaurant on the island. The entire staff is awesome and the food is extraordinary. The view is the best on the Gulf Coast.

We went on a Wednesday evening and the restaurant was not busy at all. Took too long for waitress to acknowledge us, then she never came back for refills. After waiting over 30 minutes we told them we were leaving.

To say I am very sorry is an understatement. By no means is this the way we run our business, I just wish that I could have been there to make your night a great experience instead of what you received. I take responsibility for the service you did not receive and action will be taken. Again I apologize and... More
