We enjoyed our lunch at the Rips on the Lake... We were able to sit on the porch and enjoy the view of Lake Pontchartrain.

We made reservations for Sunday lunch through Open Table, however, they do not take reservations for patio seating. The inside dining room was great, the table for two was a good size (unlike some that are too small for the salt & pepper and your plate) and comfortable. Our waitress was attentive but not annoying. The salad was disappointing, baby lettuce with 1 tomato, good dressing though. We were finished our salad when then entree came out. The food was very good, hot, and well seasoned and presented. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and would readily return. The menu was varied with a nice selection from which to chose.

Will be back!
Having moved to the Northshore a couple years ago, this was one of the last restaurants on our list to try. I wish we didn't wait so long to try it. If you can get a patio seat, I suggest that. Even in late May, the breeze off the lake at 7 PM kept us comfortable. The menu was big, not not too big where as you wonder how they can prepare that many quality dishes. The service was attentive and we were seated right away (had reservations). My only reason for not giving it a total 5 stars was the service was a BIT slow, but it was a Friday night, before a long holiday weekend and we were in prime time. All in all, fantastic experience and will ABSOLUTELY return. Great Northshore gem!

My wife and I enjoyed the total dining experience. Was not our first time there, and definitely will not be our last.

The restaurant is comfortable, the service was very good. The entire staff was very friendly. The food was good - we all had some type of seafood. The porch provided a lovely view of Lake Pontchartrain.

GOOD FOOD - SERVICE - BAD MAP
Good food and service - Address listing for Map feature is incorrect street name.
Should read Northshore Drive not North Shore - sent me to residential area.

no respect of Open Table
Used Open Table on my cell like you are supposed to. When we arrived, we were stuck with the table by the door and check in stand despite several other tables being available. We were told those tables were being held for those that made phone reservations, and that phone reservations trump Open Table reservations. Have not had that response before at a restaurant. Previously this was one of our 'go-to' local restaurants, but no more.

RIPPING AT RIPS
Can't beat the location and most entrees are very good. Don't go for the sweet potatoe fries--not the best!
