This place has everything you could possibly want in the adult beverage world, and the service was top shelf didn't have to wait long to be served by one of the most polite men I have ever encountered. Enjoy your drinks.

I went to lunch with friends after church and ordered the seafood platter and it was absolutely horrible. The crab cake was terrible. The fish and onion rings were just completely flavorless. They gave us cold corn bread with cold butter - you could not enjoy the corn bread. The prices are not commensurate with the atmosphere. The prices are... More

Excellent selection of wines and assorted liquids. And to top it off, Rips also has a very good restaurant attached to the liquor store if you like down home cooking.

I have written reviews on Rip's Country Inn before, but just had to mention their exemplary service and delicious food once again. After another visit to Six Flags, we stopped at Rip's for dinner. I have to say the Hurricane Salmon is the best salmon dish I've ever had in my life! It's a huge portion served with a side... More

Would love this to be our local go to restaurant/bar. But the staff and service is so inconsistent I don't get excited about going there even though the food is good and you can buy a bottle of wine from the adjacent liqueur store and have it uncorked. They just can't seem to keep decent staff:(
