Decided to try Riptides after reading all the favorable reviews posted. It lived up to its reputation. Red (Taylor) our server was very attentive and did a great job taking care of us. We started our meal with the seafood oysters. They were delicious. We had the fish tacos (very messy) but good as well as the jumbo shrimp (fried) and a side of crab legs. The onion rings were huge and very tasty as well as the french fries. Would definitely come back here.

This was a great restaurant! We like to go out for special dinners on vacation, and Riptides delivered. The atmosphere is casual while still feeling upscale and modern. We used to go to Barnicles (the restuarant that was previously in the building), and were amazed by the physical transformation of the space. The staff were all very friendly and knowledgeable. The food was delicious. The surf and turf bisque is a must try, as is the stuffed grouper. We wish we had gone there earlier in our trip so we could go back again and plan to return the next time we are in the area!

Family friendly, food is fantastic...especially the fish tacos and shrimp pasta. Didn't try the oysters, but the bartender said they were huge. This is a great place to take the kids. My only complaint is that their drinks are a bit weak--if I'm paying beach prices, I want to taste the alcohol!

Best oysters ever - prepared every way you can imagine and they were great - staff was great - we went there twice in a five day period. Can't get oysters much in upstate NY so this was a real treat! They also have all other types of seafood and food!
Highly recommend and will definitely go back when we are there.

Riptides was recommended by our hotel and it was a good choice. My husband had the shrimp po boy which was overflowing with shrimp. I had the fish tacos which were excellent. Only complaint was that my water never got refilled. All in all it was a pretty good experience.
