My wife and I were in the mood for fresh seafood. Several friends had mentioned Riptides to us. The seafood was as good as it gets. My wife had Red Grouper, I had pan seared Scallops. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed our entrees. The baked potato and coleslaw were great. The french fries were unremarkable big bag frozen crinkle cuts... More

This place is not fancy and you should check ahead to make sure they aren't having karaoke or a live band with lots of dancing going on unless you like that sort of thing. Always clean and have never had a bad meal there.

We were returning from a car show in New Smyrna Beach, and at the suggestion of friends from Oak Hill we stopped here with friends for dinner. It was crowded and noisy, and the servers were very, very busy. The menu was quite impressive with lots of choices. They were out of a few of the specials, but my wife... More

It's a very busy place! Four of us arrived at 6:40 on a Friday night; with reservations. We all had a different cooked seafood dish and we were all happy with our choices. The owner was our server and very friendly & helpful. Casual FL dining. Looking forward to trying their steaks next time.

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
