Our family comes to the area every year. Typically we hit the well-known restaurants in New Smyrna Beach and Daytona Beach area. Decided to try something that is off the beaten path - more local flavor. We were pleasantly rewarded for changing things up. The exterior of the restaurant looks like it is part of a roadside bar, and the... More

Went later on in the evening. Food was very good-shrimp was excellent! Simple decor- very "old school" Florida restaurant. Waitresses were very friendly. Food reasonably priced and very fresh. Great hush puppies! We will go back again.

what a surprise, when we tried Riptides for the first time. They had rock shrimp and they were just right in sie and taste and prepared just the way they should be. My wife had the sea scallops and they were large sweet and just the right amount of breading.

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
