Diner Reviews
  • "I've eaten here several time and up until this past evening have really loved it. This past experience was very difficult because our waiter kept disappearing and it took over 90 minutes for us to receive our main course, while other tables around us came and went with other servers. So, I am not sure what the real reason was, but it caused me stress."

  • "The Fried Green Tomato appetizer was very good. I was really wanting a seafood pasta, I had tried there in the past, but was not on the menu, the only seafood pasta was a Crawfish Monica with fried eggplant, sounded delish, but was told after I finally decided to order it, that I could not because they WERE taking it off the menu. The seafood platter was small and seafood was not crispy and just ok in my opinion. Our server was not very accommodating. She never refilled our drinks and was found feeding the birds by the lake at one point. We were never offered an additional refill on our alcohol beverages either. We will be back for the atmosphere, not so much the food or service!"

  • "As always, the food was great. Service was very slow but we weren't in a real hurry. Bread offered because service was slow which would be offered for all new tables, then the bread wasn't even warm. Can't beat the views though and food is outstanding with a great, affordable lunch menu!!!!"

  • "Seated at a round table in the corner, a feeling of being squeezed in when people were waiting at the bar. Their backside was much to close to us while they were standing at the bar. Noise level is Bad."

  • "I had to call and change my reservations twice and the hostess was sooo accommodating. We had a great dinner and the food, staff and location was perfect for the group. I will definitely consider going back to Rips on the Lake for a regular dinner night out and special occasions."

  • "I entered the restaurant with a beautiful view of the lake and a pleasant hostess. That is where the good experience entered. Our waitress would ask if we needed anything and I said yes she would say ok and roll her eyes. It was like she hated helping people and was just going through the motions. "Glad to help" or "Surely" would have been kinder responses. She was mad I believe because we shared a meal. I wasn't that hungry so it was the best. My mom ordered oysters and said they were great. Our salad came and it was fresh and the dressing was good. Then, the food arrived. The spinach lacked seasoning, the fish (Mahi Mahi) tasted extremely fishy. The shrimp and sauce added no flavor. As a whole was extremely disappointing."

  • "We loved our food, the atmosphere, and our server. She was a lovely lady from Ireland named Elizabeth and she completely made the experience extra special. It was my 50th bday dinner and they placed us in a wonderul area, with view of lake, in room with gorgeous fireplace and made my might amazing. In the end - the food was what was the best! The food was far better than hoped, priced extemely well and overall **** experience by all."
