Visited Rip's for sunset cocktails and appetizers with family. Enjoying the upper deck at sunset was fun!

I definitely enjoyed the food here! Everything is scrumptious from the appetizer to the entree'! The added benefit to eating here is the beautiful view of the lake if you eat on the patio! The food portion is plenteous and you will not regret dining here!

Rip's was delicious. first of all it was packed and we were concerned, but we had reservations, and they seated us quickly. Most of been homecoming or something but DANA took the best care of us. She was very over worked but she did not show it served us promptly and graciously, and food was delicious. Try this place out.

We keep going here only because family in the area keeps taking us here when we visit. Not impressed with the food quality. Fried seafood platter too salty. The soft shell crab seemed a bit old, odd, not tasty. Oysters small and not all that fresh. The Oysters Bayou Teche, allegedly the "best thing on the menu," was not the... More

Had lunch there recently and was quite disappointed. Service was slow despite being there at tail end of lunch hour. Turtle soup was least favorite of any we have tried in Louisiana; "weak" and decidedly lacking in taste. Crab cakes were tasty but mostly filler. Spinach salad with strawberries would have been very good but was overwhelmed by too much... More

Don't even consider a visit to Mandeville without stopping by to enjoy a meal and beverages at this great location...right on the beautiful shores of Lake Ponchartrain. We had buster softshell crabs with lump crab meat, so good! Great vegetables for our vegetarian friends. And the sunrise. Spectactular!

If you want a real taste of Louisiana seafood in a quaint, but beautiful restaurant, them Rips is the place. A full menu with good sized portions, your entrees are always served hot and with a smile.We only wish they served sweet tea.

Lovely premises with a panoramic view, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The staff were friendly and very professional and the food was top notch. Not cheap, this is a very nice place to go for a special occasion. We had a very nice time.

Beautiful view. Good quality bar. Outside dining on porch/deck, with ceiling fans. Usually a nice breeze from lake is enjoyed. Inside dining in two rooms. Service is acceptable/average. Food, however, is very inconsistent. Sometimes its good and sometimes its disappointing. Mostly a location where locals like to gather and socialize/be seen; location is walkable for those who lives along the... More

The building is beautiful with a great location surrounded by live oaks right on the lake. The patio was full unfortunately so we sat inside. The food is pricey and the service a bit slow but it was delicious. I had the turtle soup and shrimp cocktail. The shrimp was very fresh and yummy. It was my first turtle soup... More
