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:(

The food is okay, booths are not that comfortable, and I think the prices are a little high for what you can order. Reminds me of a truck stop sort of restaurant with a cheap motel out back and a liquor store attached.

This is a local's family eatery and great truck stop before getting back on the road. Very comfy atmosphere, okay food, and great if you're in a hurry.
