Will never go back

Thier fried seafood platter is mostly pre frozen foods not local seafood as they claimed it is. It was awful. Its like being in a cave inside this place. I would never go back if the food was free

Riptides has always been one of my favorite Seafood restaurants in town, but its not in the heart of the restaurant area so I think travelers tend to over look it. I am a seafood lover, and my boyfriend isn't, and he loved the shrimp he got. As far as I'm concerned they have HANDS DOWN, the best scallops in... More

JC's Riptides is a solid restaurant where you can be sure to get a great meal at a fair price. I think the prime rib is awesome (although it is primarily a seafood restaurant). The atmosphere isn't anything to write home about, but it is always clean, the staff friendly and courteous, and the food never disappoints. The best option... More

JC's is one of the best-kept secrets in Southeast Volusia. This restaurant features seafood and prime-rib dinners, usually at about $5 less than all the other restaurants in the area. It also is the only one I know of that sells broiled split rock shrimp, a delicacy that taste likes langostino! Their rock shrimps are big, too! You can get... More

Took my wife & another couple to dinner on Saturday evening & enjoyed some if the most delicious Seafood we've had in ages!!! The service was very attentive and knowledgeable. The quality & taste of our food was perfect. All 4 of us had this fantastic dinner for a total of $65 including taxes. We would highly recommend this Restaurant.... More

I had the prime rib cooked to perfection and my guy had the seafood platter. The food was GREAT! This family owned and run place is worth the trip south of Daytona. The senior special runs 4-6pm. Those prices can't be beat. We had a Groupon for $25 and had a hard time spending it 😊

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
