Had a great meal and great service. Really good for hotel restaurant. Had the cheese fries. It was good but the cheese was broiled and had gotten a little crunchy. Other than that everything was great. Really liked our waitress.

Since kids eat free if you stay at the Holiday Inn Resort we fully took advantage of this. Everything from shrimp Poboys and Crabcake sliders for lunches and a giant breakfast buffet for breakfast it really was a treat to have a restaurant that served high quality food where the kids could eat for free. Major bonus...one last thing TRY... More

Ate here twice while staying as guests at the hotel where it's located, mainly out of convenience. Kid meals were about average. Adult meals lacked flavor on both accounts, but was worth not having to venture far from the hotel or pool area with wet, hungry kids!

We had a 6 year old as well as an 11 month old with us. The wait staff treated us great and our food was served quickly and was yummy. I... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Resort, Pensacola Beach. No need to look else where for food. We had lunch there twice and dinner once. Awesome food! You have got to try the Close Out burger. No condiments needed! We also had the spinach artichoke dip. Try it! You will not be disappointed! If there is two of you, order... More

Riptides Sports Grill is located on the sugar white sands of Pensacola Beach inside the Holiday Inn Resort. With twenty high definition flat screen TVs (inside and outside) and continuous satellite feeds the game is always on. Quality American comfort food, great sports and good friends - it doesn't get better then this, unless you have box seats.
