Trout almandine and trout audry, both excellent! Best to go when the weather is nice and sit outside to watch an amazing sunset.

My husband and I discovered Rips about 2 years ago and make it a point to visit every time we are in the area. We sit at the bar and interact with the owner, bartender and regular patrons. The food is fantastic, service never disappoints.

We have been to Rips many times and each time the food gets better and better. Love their Seafood and steaks. Highly recommend this to anyone wanting a great meal in Mandeville especially on the lakefront.

The view was absolutely amazing. Food wasn't bad. They have absolutely nothing Vegan. Even the vegan fall backs weren't vegan here. The fries are cooked in animal fat and all of their dressings have milk, cheese, anchovies, or honey in them. The non-vegan foods were good but a dry salad is not a good memory one wants to have leaving... More

Took my two favorite girls to lunch, my wife and daughter. Decided to take them across the lake to Mandeville for lunch on the lake front at Rip's, for the first time ever. Pleasantly surprised with the variety on the menu. We had the fried crab fingers, cups of turtle soup for appetizers. Then we had the jumbo lump crab... More

Rips has really good food but the best part of all has got to be the amazing views you get of lake Pontchartrain from there patio.

Best seafood in town. Fried green tomatoes are highly recommended. Onion rings are huge and fabulous (but not served on Sunday). Friendly staff and fast service.

My cousins who live locally say this is their favorite restaurant. Our party of five ate on the veranda over looking the lake. We each had a seafood entree, lots to choose from. Given previous reviews, it may be hit or miss, but our lunches were good. I think it may be difficult to keep a top quality chef given... More
