Grew up in the Covington/ Mandeville area, moved away 25 years ago. It is always fun to go back and visit a place that you went to as a child. The original building is not raised up off the ground and is beautiful. The service and food was wonderful. Better than I remember!!

We love eating out on the front porch. However in the heat of the summer with the sun beating down its less than desirable. Inside is a normal feeling place. Good food. nice people. Good wine.

Went to join friends for lunch. Our waitress, Kayla, provided exceptional service. She was friendly, good natured, helpful, efficient. Each of our seafood lunches were excellent and the bread pudding was outstanding. The view across the lake was beautiful and the breeze was perfect.

I can tell you right now, you are a liar, first of all, Rips always uses fresh ingredients and the seafood is delivered fresh daily. Second, neither of the owners or management drink, so how could they be drunk? The owners and staff regularly go out of their way to see that guest are treated with utmost importance, and if... More

She was too lazy to write my order down, didn't get a refill from 25 minutes when she was at our table with an empty glass I had to deliver my husband's side salad, she didn't even OFFER a refill to me in that 25 minutes until our entrées arrived and wasn't even in...

My husband became very ill after eating smelly fish here. We tried to speak with management about the smell of the fish. But in the VERY DRUNK OWNER CAME OVER! He then told us to pay up and leave all awhile falling over my daughter. There are other places on the lake with views. Never again!!!!'

After reading the negative reviews, we were reluctant to go here but decided to give it a try. Glad we did because the food was great. The service was very good too. I think on a busy night it would be very crowded because the tables are very close to each other. I'm glad we gave it a try.

Stopped in for a late lunch. No wait as it wasn't very busy. Had a dozen oysters on the half shell and a cup of crab and brie soup. The oysters were good. Not the best I've ever had, but they were fresh. The soup however was fantastic! I would come back just for the soup. Overall a good experience.
