This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend who grew up in Baltimore and they definitely steered us in the right direction. We came here on a Friday night and luckily didn't have a problem getting a table and they had some great live music to add to the ambiance. We had a very cheerful waitress who was super friendly and helpful. The crab dip was great as was the crab cake entree I had. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Baltimore.

We stopped at Riptide by the Bay for a bite to eat and a couple drinks. While the place was quite loud (10 pm on a Saturday), our waitress was very personable and the food was good. I had the crab cake sliders and they were delicious! If you are looking for good food and a solid selection of drinks, you'll enjoy this place.

Great crab, awesome waitress super friendly, showed us how to crack the crabs. During pirate festival...try the 'grog' goes down smooth but very strong. Mac and cheese disappeared on our table it was so good, wish it came with more.

Our dinner pretty good, but a bit pricey overall. Good ice-cold beers and fish tacos! Crab dip was too thin and should have included more baguette portions. Crab bisque was creamy and delicious.

My boyfriend and I were looking for a place to sit outside, have lunch, and a drink on a Saturday. I was surprised that they only had a brunch menu going on a Saturday. We ordered bloody mary's and they were excellent! I loved the old by around the rim. My boyfriend got the crab eggs benedict and really enjoyed it, especially the rosemary potatoes. We sat outside and liked people watching. The poor bartender also doubled as the waiter for outside tables. He was nice but always seemed very frazzled. They should get him some help. I would come back here.
