Go for the food, not the atmosphere.

Rock shrimp is the best ever here. The place is dated but for what they lack in decor, they make up for with terrific food and service. Prices are very reasonable.

JC's Riptides was recommended and had positive reviews on Trip Advisor, so we tried it for the first time and were pleasantly satisfied. The setting is rustic but comfortable with both tables and booths. The menu has a good variety but plenty of seafood. The chowder was excellent. Entrees come with two sides or a salad and a side plus... More

We stopped here based on Trip Advisor reviews and we're not disappointed. Great service and food was excellent. Definitely try the rock shrimp. Also key lime tart for dessert is a great choice. Would definitely recommend.

A group of us (6 adults) wanted a great local place to eat. These folks are only open for dinner. The food is excellent. The place is clean. They even make all their own salad dressings. Lots of great sea food and prime rib too. A good size diner salad with way more than just lettuce. Tuesday is Italian night.... More

I had the prime rib and my face had the fried shrimp. The prime rib was a bad piece of meat, but it was tough as leather. The shrimp reminded me of that frozen stuff you get pre-breaded in the grocery store, not good. We took one for the team here, bens from our experience.
