Lively atmosphere and great view of Lake Pontchartrain on the front porch. Enjoyed the parmesan and almond tilapia and Clay's favorite. No room for dessert, but the bread pudding looked delicious. Attentive and friendly waitstaff.

Sitting on the porch at Rip's looking out over Lake Ponchartrain and eating their signature seafood dishes is one of our favorite things to do on the Northshore. The food is very good, the atmosphere is really excellent, and the servers are knowledgable and experienced (and friendly!).

Always a Pleasant Evening!

We have chosen Rip's for two special occasions and have been very happy with them. Both times we have sat on the front porch overlooking the lake and it is beautiful. Same waiter - both times excellent. Relaxed atmosphere, but dressing nicely fits in perfectly too.

We had a wonderful experience with friends on Friday evening. Located in old Mandeville in an old house over looking the lake, it is beautiful. Our table was ready when we arrived - our waitress Elizabeth (from Ireland) was delightful.
The food - from the appetizers to entrees were great. Everyone ordered something different and all looked great - we had ruby red trout, blackened fish, oysters with a shrimp stuffed potato, fried shrimp. My blackened fish entree with a basil cream sauce was terrific. The only disappointment - no ice cream for dessert ( my husband likes his ice cream). :)
We will be returning so we can sit on the porch and look at the lake in the daytime.

Great 2nd floor balcony with view of Lake Ponchartrain. Beautiful sunsets. Food adequate but could be better. Service fast and friendly especially at bar where you can eat and watch sports on big screen tv
