Lovely ambiance and good food

The interior is white tablecloths and beautiful decor, but still a relaxed and comfortable feel. The decor is upscale and they have... read more

We recently brought 14 of our friends, some local and some from out of town for a friends and family get together at Rips. Our experience was wonderful. Because we had such a large group we were seated inside, which was wonderful since it was hot and humid on the porch. Our server was excellent, right on top of everything... More

We were surprised that the porch is now enclosed. This makes enjoying the scenery when it is hot, cold or raining much more likely & really increases the tables available. The service was very good. The waiter we had was very knowledgeable about the menu & took great care of us. The pompano is new to the menu & is... More

On a recent trip to NOLA, we stayed at a Timeshare in Mandeville. This restaurant was super yummy and right on the Lake so had beautiful surroundings. Food was fresh and service was good. If you're in the area, you should definitely check it out.

Sara's 18th birthday dinner was perfect tonight at Rip's. We sat on the deck with a gorgeous view of Lake Pontchartrain. Wife had Spinach Salad w/ fruit, nuts, and grilled shrimp. Son had Crawfish Monica topped w/ fried eggplant. Sara had a 9 oz filet w/ grilled shrimp, scallops, pepper jack cream sauce and grilled asparagus (pictured). I wasn't too... More

I took my girlfriend her Aunt and my grandson to Rips for a nice lunch, or so I thought.The waiter was overtaxxed and under trained. First inkling of this was when the salad course was served there was a rotten cherry tomato in Auntie's salad, when we were finally able to flag down our non-existant waiter to refill our tea...

Very nice view of the lake from outside elevated porch. Parking not too bad but a little congested. Inside view of lake is mostly obstructed.Atmosphere inside is nice but very noisy. Outside is also noisy but not nearly as bad.Now for the good part, food was very good and service was also quit good especially considering the number of tables... More

The appetizer was cold and the service was poor. The waiter never hardly came to the table, never got refills or coffee or water. Never asked if we wanted desert or how was our meal.

If you go, order fresh fish...best salmon I've ever had! My son ordered fried shrimp and catfish and it was good but nothing like the fresh fish. Do not wear a tank top...they don't like that and will ask you to put on your coat or sweatshirt. I give it 5 stars for the food and view of the lake...would... More
