We were passing through this area and stopped in for lunch and were really impressed with the establishment, the service and food. We had a tuna salad sandwich and a Ruben, one with homemade chips and the other with fries. Really impressed with the freshness of the sandwiches. Great service, very friendly waitress. The prices were a little on the... More

I eat here all the time and they are great. Food is excellent and wait staff is friendly and efficient. They are known for their Sunday brunch. It has an attached liquor store and deli. The wine shop is extensive.

Rip's is a local landmark. The food is consistently delicious. Many home-style recipes in a private booth style restaurant. We have been coming to Rip's for the 25 years we've lived near there.

After being overcharged for a bottle of Scotch by the guy with the small liquor store not far from Rip's, the last time I was in town, I went looking for another place. This is how I found Rip's. From the outside, it doesn't look all that inviting - kinda shacky-ish. I visited the liquor store, which was fantastic with... More

Have been eating at Rip's for 30 years and it is always reliable. A very relaxed ambience in the booth area. The Reuben is delicious. I recommend it.

Ok, this review is for take-out only. I eat there all the time and about 99.9% of the time the food is great, however the wait staff is hit or miss. As for the take-out, the guy that took the order over the phone was short with me and rude. I know it's the guy at the bar that always... More
