Beautiful view

The view of lake Pontchatrain is beautiful. The food is good not greasy but you do pay about $2 more than the average per dish for the view. No boiled seafood or grilled strictly fried or w pasta. The shrimp were tasty and not greasy as was the catfish.

Several locals recommended Rip's and we were not disappointed. The lunch specials were wonderful. We ate inside but the view of the Lake for outside diners was terrific. The food was delicious and our waiter kindly split orders for us without charge. A delightful experience.

Five ladies on a girls' trip searching for a lovely restaurant on the lake in Mandeville, La. We chose Rips and what a great choice it was. Our server was so personable, offering suggestions on his favorite food items, the food was delicious, and the ambiance was lovely. I have recommended Rips to all of my friends. Try it! You... More

Love coming here. The food is delicious and the service is consistently good. View is lovely and if the weather permits, I'd recommend sitting on the porch. There are elevators if the climb up the stairs to the restaurant is too much. Great separate bar area. Only complaint is that the tables are a little too close together. Otherwise, great... 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

Ripp's faces Lake Pontchartrain and has outdoor seating with an unobstructed view of the lake and the lights of New Orleans roughly 25 miles south, across the lake. The interior is white tablecloths and beautiful decor, but still a relaxed and comfortable feel. The decor is upscale and they have a beautiful full bar. It has a relatively small number... 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...
