I went there tonight and ordered Malibu coconut rum shot. My servers name was Mark. The four dollar shot basically tasted like ice water. Mark was rude and dismissive and I will never go back there again.

Loved that fact that it was an open-air bar with darts, pool tables and music. We went on a Wednesday night and the regulars were friendly and the bartender was accomodating. The true bar experience - we'll see you next year!

Riptides has plenty of big screen TVs, ample room for patrons in an open air setting, prompt and friendly service, pool table, and competitive prices. Well worth your visit!

We have been going here for years, haven't left a review. Great place for a great drink at a great price. Can't beat Kettle 1 at $3. Today we came in during the rain to play some bar games. Denise was bartending and she's awesome!...More
