We ate here for my birthday last week. It was wonderful. The appetizers were delicious. My boyfriend got the fish topped with crawfish, artichokes and a lemon cream sauce and it was great. I got the filet steak, not so great, overcooked. Stick to the seafood folks, guess that's why its in the name :) I will surely return for... More

Took my sons (13 and 8) to dinner tonight and had a fabulous experience. Craig, our waiter, greeted us warmly and was very attentive throughout the meal. I ordered a cup of the crab and brie soup and it was absolutely superb! My sons, the pickiest eaters in town, loved it! It was creamy, flavorful, and fresh. I split the... More

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
