We visit Riptide's a minimum of once a month if not more, and you just cannot beat the flavor, quality, and value of food! The service is excellent and the owner is always present, walking around making sure everything is satisfactory for her patrons! They just went thru a nice remodel and the atmosphere is fresh, coastal, and clean. It's... More

We really enjoyed our dinner there. We asked for a local restaurant with fresh seafood and ripe tides delivered! They got our food out fast. The salads were big and yummy. My mahi mahi was cooked perfectly. The hush puppies were awesome. Fully recommend.

This is a place I go to often. Sometimes for dinner and some times for appetizers and a drink. They have early bird special along with the regular menu. They are famous for Rock Shrimp. My favorite is clams casino, She makes all her own salad dessings and they are delicious.

We took the quick trip from New Smyrna Beach to Edgewater and were thrilled with our choice. JC's Riptides doesn't boast an impressive appearance from the street (or inside for that matter), but it is definitely worth stopping in, or making the quick 10 minute trip from the beach. The place is a family run establishment, and operated by a... More

Good atmosphere if you like a bar scene. Rock shrimp was recommended but found it to be overcooked. Okay service. Good place if you do not care about quality of food but like atmosphere.

My family was looking for a place with a variety of food with good prices- we found this place on Tripadvisor. It doesn't look very good from the outside but we went in anyway. The menu had lots of different items on it. Several people ordered surf and turf with prime rib and rock shrimp. The prime rib was ok... More
