Great food, location and service!!!

If you want amazing fresh seafood, great view of lake Ponchartrain, and great service, then Rips is the place to go. Never had a bad meal, and they give generous portions. But one of my favorite things is to sit at the bar eating and watching football. Ask for Chase, who serves a very generous... read more

We've been here at least 20 times, and today was a disappointment. I was ok that we couldn't get a table for 2 outside even though there were tables available (I can appreciate they were saving the large tables git larger groups) although I totally disagree with the thought process. We decided to sit at the bar. At the time... More

If you want a nice place on the lakefront to get seafood and drinks at affordable prices, this is your place. The food is tasty (especially the desserts) and the drinks are generous.

Rip's is always first to mind as a great place to eat on a beautiful day. Such was the case on a recent beautiful Sunday afternoon. Rips does a very good job with fried seafood, a good appetizer menu and a few good specials. Nothing overly creative or exceptional but a good reliable place with an exceptional view of Lake...

Great bar, awesome location and great local food fare. We love this place as an outside dining experience, and you can walk off the shrimp and grits afterwards with a stroll on the lakefront.

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.
