Riptides is located on US 1 a few miles south of New Smyrna Beach in the city of Edgewater. The unassuming building houses a large dining room and bar area. Parking is plentiful. Booths and tables are available and are spaced comfortably apart. The party of four were greeted by a pleasant server and drinks of ice tea (swee-t) and... More

Looking in from the outside, it brings you back to old time Florida restaurants. Nothing fancy, but the food is consistently good. We started out our latest meal with the house chowder which was good, lots of clams and gator tail without too many potatoes. The house salad is good - fresh and dressed with home made salad dressings. I... More

The service, although very friendly, was insanely too slow. Jenny was pleasant and apologetic when she first approached us. Even though there were only 10 tables occupied and 8 were already eating, once seated, we were left alone for 10 minutes. After politely blaming it on someone else we were ready to move on. The stuffed shrimp and coleslaw were... More

Hands down THE best prime rib, rock shrimp, shrimp scampi, gator tail, salad dressings, and hush puppies I have ever had and I have eaten at restaurants all over Volusia County. I have not had anything that I have not loved on their menu and all visitors I bring are always impressed. It is family owned and has a very... More

I could go on and on about this experience. I read the reviews almost giving it a 90 %. I cannot believe it. The resturant is in very ill repair. From the parking lot to the dirty menus. Extremely dirty floors and ceilings. While we were waiting for our pricey early bird menu we we're serve packaged crackers in a... More

The place is a dump. No air condition in the restrooms. Food was ok at best. Out of a lot of menu choices by later evening. High prices for nothing great. Go to Blackbirds down the street instead.

The owner makes all of the sauces and salad dressings daily. I never liked blue cheese until I tried it here. You must try their prime rib, slow roasted via an auto-clave oven and rubbed with a secret recipe. And if the season allows Rock Shrimp are a definite at the top of the TO EAT list. And for dessert........Homemade... More

The Rock Shrimp was excellent, as they were big and came off the shell so easy! My one friend had the prime rib and said it is better than "Black Beards". The guys both had fish and said it was so good. Will be back soon!
