Fun times at Riptide

I've been here several times for brunch, lunch, and dinner. My favorite was the all you can eat brunch they would have in special occasions such as Father's day and Mother's Day. Good price for the quantity and variety of food. I'm not sure they have those anymore. Today my daughter and I came... read more

We like the All-You-Can-Eat Sushi, Sushi Bar and Teppan. They make it fun and exciting for customers. Food is great, service is a little bit slow due to the crowd.

Went to Riptide for the first time tonight. I had herd wonderful things about this place and was anxious to give it a try. We were seated quickly and got drinks very quickly. everything was going good. I decided to try the lobster pesto and got a burrito roll, a speciality sushi roll that looks and tastes like a burrito.... More

Had to wait almost 5 minutes to be seated in a nearly empty restaurant since the hostess was also getting drinks for tables. Service was slow. Sushi rice was undercooked and there was so much sauce on some of the rolls you couldn't taste the fish. Not recommended.

Great Sushi and fun 80's vibe. I recommend the colossal ceviche, it's huge and a great start to any meal. If you ever have a chance to go to a Sunday brunch there, also very good.

I met a friend for dinner because it was a convenient location. It had a bad smell when we entered and I almost turned around. After dining, I wished I had. The sushi was sad. The cucumber salad wasn't fresh and was topped by fake lump crab. Ewww. There are lots of better choices.

Went on Sunday afternoon. Walked in at 1:00 p.m. Got seated at 1:25 p.m. Drink order was taken around 1:45 p.m. and finally food was ordered around 2:15 p.m. Thirty minutes later, the only items that were served by then, was 2nd refill to a coke, wrong sushi order, and an incomplete lunch entrée. Free refills were on fountain drinks... More

Two of my friends took me here for the very first time last Thurs 01-29-15 for "All You Can Eat Sushi". Not to be critical, we got there at 8pm and we waited. Waited. Waited. It was very crowded, so we understood but we waited quite a bit for a seat. It was nice to be seated at one of... More

this place is a combination of sushi bar and Teppanyaki (Benihanas). Lots of custom hand rolls. Some cooked, so raw. Good food, large and loud with 80-90 music. Fun date night.

Sushi bar cooks are good, but sometimes fish seems old. Brought is up to Manager and he was rude. Waitress help at Sushi bar is the worst. Not sure what they do, but they bring water late, take order late, even bring the bill late - you have to go find them. Once at a normal restaurant table at Riptide,... More
