We had a family affair there over the weekend. Wait staff was excellent for a group of 30!! Drinks and food were really really good!

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.

Went here with a few friends for the first time. The food was better than expected. The beer menu was good and the service was impressive. Attached was a big liquor store that had a huge selection of craft beer and wine. I am definitely comeing back!

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

I had not been to Rips for several years, and really didn't miss it. I was re-introduced last night when my Women's Club had our annual dinner there. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it, and plan to return with my family. I ordered the fried chicken dinner and was so glad I did. The chicken was... More

We live near Rip's and dine there perhaps once a month. My husband likes their open faced turkey sandwiches, and their dinner salads are OK. The place is kind of old and tired looking, and the wait staff is kind of spotty. Sometimes, they're right on track, and sometimes you feel invisible. Sometimes the food is good and sometimes, it's... More

There is very little ambiance in the restaurant. The newly renovated, updated pub is welcoming with lots of seating choices such as a table for 2, a private booth or seats at the bar. The food is very good American fare with excellent Maryland crab soup. Enjoy!
