My family was looking for a place with a variety of food with good prices- we found this place on Tripadvisor. It doesn't look very good from the outside but we went in anyway. The menu had lots of different items on it. Several people ordered surf and turf with prime rib and rock shrimp. The prime rib was ok... More

They have a really laid back relaxed atmosphere in an older restaurant. The food was very good but the service was next to non existent

We have been there several times on Birthdays and anniversaries and food/service always good. Prime rib is excellent as well as fresh seafood and sometimes fun entertainment.

We had a fabulous meal at JC's Riptides. From the time we arrived and were seated by the hostess, to our waitress chatting garden do's and don't's in Central FL to good dinner suggestions and excellent service - we were impressed and very pleased! Our house chowder was delivered with 2 spoons because we were sharing - and it was... More

Have had dinner here twice with a party of 4 and party of 6. The food is outstanding, delicious. The price was right especially if you use the $5.00 off 2 dinners, and wine was good and reasonably priced.

We go for the "Black & Blue" prime rib. My wife doesn't usually like red meat but loves it here! Have never had a bad experience here. Consistently great food, great service and reasonable prices.

We just had the best meal! I had the New York strip and my hubby had the rock shrimp. Both cooked to perfection and tasted great! It was very busy due to race weekend but our waitress is a hustler! She is working her tail off and we just loved it! We didn't wait too long for anything. Definitely try... More

JC's Riptides was recommended and had positive reviews on Trip Advisor, so we tried it for the first time and were pleasantly satisfied. The setting is rustic but comfortable with both tables and booths. The menu has a good variety but plenty of seafood. The chowder was excellent. Entrees come with two sides or a salad and a side plus... More
