Solid place

Good food. Local place that does it well. I go about once a month. Good comfort food. No complaints about anything. Plus you can go to their wine and liquor store which has a knowledgeable staff

If you are looking for consistent home cooking without the clean up, then come to Rip's Country Inn. The food is good but not remarkable. You see a lot of regular customers there and you are treated like and honored family guest. If you are looking for the flash and dash and bland food of a chain store, then this... More

The restaurant itself was quaint, warm and inviting. The management was willing to accommodate our large group and my daughter and my special dietary needs. The waitress however was a joke. We waited quite a while after being seated to receive our menus. When the waitress finally came, we all said we were ready to order right away. She promptly... More

I've recently eaten here on my way to and from BWI..once with my hubby and once with my 17 favorite people. Both experiences were great! Good food and plenty of it, a wonderful atmosphere, both romantic enough for a couple's dinner and accommodating for a crowd that included kids. We were made to feel very welcome in both circumstances. If... More

During a family reunion weekend we had our Sunday brunch at RIPS. We had never been there previously so we were not sure what to expect. RIPS was great! The food was fabulous and worth every penny. The staff were welcoming and accommodating if all our needs as well. We had a nice size private room that met our family... More

Lots of choices and they did not rush our group so we were able to sit and visit with all our out of town friends. Also did a wedding day breakfast there years ago and they gave us a private room . Good service and nice people!

My wife and I went to dinner after a meeting at UMUC 22Oct 2014. When we arrived at the restaurant wait time to be seated was less then 3 minutes, host was very polite as well as professional, that made us happy. When you are hungry the last thing you want to do is wait or have an unprofessional hostess.... More

This is a nice place for lunch. The booths are intimate and quiet. We had a very good server who could make interesting suggestions. The salads are great. It's a good spot for local atmosphere.

My wife and I use to come to this restaurant every Sunday. The food and service was good. We notice a change about the time they went to the corn bread before the meal. The portions became smaller and the price went up. We continue to frequent because we liked the servers. Finally some months back we stopped coming all... More
