“Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

Wonderful food and great service. The price is average but the Mahi- Mahi is outstanding and the all you can eat crab legs are the best deal in town.

We had dinner at Riptide and the food was delicious. I had a seafood casserole that was so rick it was hard to finish it. The prices was a little above average but the food was good.

“Christmas Dinner Heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

We tried for lunch on Christmas Eve, since we'd read the reviews & they were pretty bad. So we decided to give it a try for lunch; the service was excellent, the cole slaw was "okay" (had better), but the rest of the meal was pretty good. The price was a little above average for us because I noticed they really didn't have a lunch menu. They do have a sandwich menu, but I wasn't in the mood for a sandwich or salad. So we decided to make reservations for Christmas, as they were offering a $24.99 1/2 lb. snow crab/12 oz. prime rib dinner. Let me tell you, we had the same waiter, they put us in a separate room, where we had tons of privacy, and the overall experience was stupendous! Anthony was our waiter, and ever pleasant & accommodating, but the rest of the employees were very pleasant & helpful as well. The food was spectacular (we think the cut was thicker than 12 oz.!!) and we left the place quite satiated. I am so glad we did not go w/the reviews from last Christmas, as we would have missed a wonderful experience! They did tell us they learned from their mistakes last year, and it was truly evident!! Two thumbs up!

“Poor boy left feeling sick”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Emptying my wallet for poor service and mediocre food does not leave a good taste in mouth. We arrived and ordered oysters steamed, came out quick just to the wrong table. By the time our waitress realized this we had eaten crackers and hot sauce with little expectations for how our main course would fair.

“First Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

WOW! Riptides was absolutely spectacular!!! The Oysters were fresh and tasty. The salads and appetizers were delicious. my favorite part was the all you can eat snow crab legs (which were done with old bay seasoning) and butter. If you are in this area try riptides, you will not be disappointed
