Food was Incredible, Fresh Seafood, Great Steaks. Salad was Average but the Ranch dressing was the Best I have ever had. Our waitress said the owner makes all the sauces. Prime Rib was very tender and had great flavor, they claim they use a special rub and whatever it is they use makes the Prime Rib the Best I've ever... More

This place came recommended to us before and we gave it a try. We were disappointed. The same person recommended it again tonight, so we decided maybe we caught it on an off night before, even though the surroundings leave much to desire and decided to give it another try. It honestly was Robert Irvine's worst nightmare!! (I'm sure no... More

Riptides has something few restaurants have - rock shrimp. They look like shrimp-size lobster tails, and taste very similar. They are served with melted butter. My favorite potato there is "fully dressed" baked potato. Their homemade coleslaw is made with a dressing that is not sweet, but creamy. It's a great restaurant for families and groups, too.

Had dinner twice there. Place is funky (dark and not the cleanest) and food is not great. Salads are so-so and entrees are typical frozen and heated food. Nothing great here to suggest to eat.

This restaurant came highly recommended. Couldn't wait to try it! The building was neglected on the outside but looked past that because of the recommendation. Ordered rock shrimp, my friend had the baked stuffed shrimp. Both were horrible. The rock shrimp were dry and overcooked, the. Baked potatoes tasted days old. Also the carpet in the restaurant had an odor... More

Somewhat typical seafood restaurant. Early bird starts at 4 pm -- slightly lower prices with slightly smaller entrees (e.g., 7 instead of 9 shrimp or oysters.). Early bird/senior menu from $9 to $13. Regular entrees from $10 to $24. We got the Mates Platter -- enough for two to split (18.95). No bread, crackers instead. Cole slaw cut very coarse.... More

I wasn't sure about this place from the outside but had seen good reviews on it. We got there just as it opened for dinner and were able to get their early bird specials - which were good deals. Conch fritters okay - have had better (in Key West). Clam chowder - yum, salad - basic. My husband got the... More

We visited this restaurant twice. I had seafood and a burger. My husband had more exotic seafood, calamari and also sliders. Everything was fresh, hot and beautifully prepared. The staff was pleasant and we were not rushed.

By far the BEST Steak and Seafood Restaurant in the New Smyrna Beach/Edgewater area. Seafood is fresh, cooked to perfection and plentiful. Steaks are all hand cut,top quality, melt in your mouth. Their Prime Rib is without a doubt the Best I have ever had anywhere and I am a Steak Lover. It is slow cooked with what they say... More

The food was ok, a little pricey for the ambiance, but the night was wonderful thanks to the trio who play there once a month. The music is mostly 60s and 70s, but they can do anything. Best entertainment!!!
