I dislike themed restaurants and so was very concerned about this place when I walked in to make a booking for later that evening. The location and the friendly staff is what made me decide to eat there later that day. It was the right decision. All the food was exactly what was described and was thoroughly enjoyable. The theme may be more to others' liking but teh food will certainly be enjoyed vy everyone who wants an easy, delicious meal

We've been to the Riptide several times over the past few years. This may not be the best restaurant in the area and certainly isn't haute cuisine. But: difficult to beat the location - right at the beach, sound of the ocean. This is off-season so no problem to find a table with great view. Friendly service and after ordering we took a stroll on the beach. Food was better than expected, cajun chicken / feta salad doesn't come with much green salad but the chicken is juicy and great taste, the feta is nice and creamy. Other dishes were good as well and we had a good time. Will be back again.

We recently spent a pleasent evening in May dining at the Riptide. This is not high season in Southbroom so speedy service. This is a beachside eatery and is very "no shoes - no news" however the beer was cold and the chicken and calimari curry was excellent!
This is not an up market establishment however and the staff can take a little time to warm to you but we found if you smile at them they will respond warmly. The location is fantastic - if you were closer to the Indian Ocean you would need a life raft. We really enjoyed it, but in high season may be another story.

Sit right on the place where a lazy river runs through the white sandy beach of Southbroom into the sea, have a good wine or beer, listen to the music of the ocean and have some simple food.
Nice place for a casual lunch.

Beautiful setting but the food was not well cooked. Based on other reviews of this restaurant we were expecting better quality than we received.
