"The bar area was active and loud; a good sign. Our table was ready and we were seated promptly when we arrived. Our server seemed overwhelmed throughout our stay, and we are a very easy going group, not demanding. But it seemed a party of 9 was a bit much for him, although he did ok. There was confusion with one appetizer order, and one appetizer order arrived really late. Dinner order of seafood (crab legs and 1/2 steamed shrimp) evidently comes from a different kitchen and arrived well before the other entrees. Kid's chicken fingers were almost burnt; a hamburger had cheese that was melted almost to nonexistence. Not enough to complain about. The "Birthday Boy" was pleased with his meal, as were others in our party. Didn't ruin the birthday lunch, and the "Birthday Boy" was happy, so that's all that mattered. Only big complaint is that the music was a little too loud."

"Went to Riptide for Saturday brunch with a group. They obviously were not staffed or capable of handling a group of 8. We received our food approx 2 hours after sitting down. Waiter apologized about having a large group upstairs. Once the food arrived it was mediocre at best. We never received our appetizer. There are better run restaurants in the area than Riptide."

"Took visitors while waiting to go to BWI ... One visitor ordered steamed crab for the very first time and we all felt it was a wonderful introduction to that particular type of eating. The wait staff were helpful and instructive. The rest of our lunches were excellent and we will definitely find a reason to return"

"We love this new find! Brian and Nicole took great care of our group of 10, including 2 pre-teens. It was friendly-neighborhood loud, and the first floor bar is good for people watching. The upper floors offer waterfront views from the front windows. They offer seafood combos, which we chose. The food was better than any chain stores like Red Lobster, but a step behind top places like Mo's. We will be back!"

"the only thing this place has going for it, is the location at Fells Point. Don't waste your money. Our waiter (wait, was there a waiter there?) was never around. the food was ok, not worthy of going back. the music WAS REALLY LOUD! Not heading back for food."

"We arrived early for a reservation for a large group and the amazing staff worked to seat us quickly. While we were sad that the crabs were not available, we were grateful that the owner and chef refused to compromise by serving less than the Maryland Blue Crabs. We had several children in our party and the staff helped them to enjoy seafood too. Overall, we had a wonderful time and I would recommend Riptide to anyone visiting Baltimore."

"I received a phone call immediately after I left the restaurant at 11:30pm from one of the servers rudely accusing my party of shorting the bill which was completely untrue. We paid the bill in full and left a tip too. It was extremely inappropriate. I called the next day and complained to Ronald, the manager, and was told the same thing. I have never been treated this way. I will NEVER eat there AGAIN!"

"I usually get seafood but was in the mood for red meat. I should have stayed with what they are good at... that is, seafood dishes. The steak was good but for the price, I expected something better than what I can grill myself. I would still recommend the restaurant for again... seafood."

"Service was slow and erratic. Food was delivered before the condiments. By the time condiments arrived the food was cold. If you order the Md Crab Bisque, check to make certain there is crab in the soup. We had to send our's back.
Over all the staff was friendly."

"We went for crabs on a Friday night. "Jumbo" were $10 each, and we ordered a dozen. They were "extra large" at best, and a couple weren't even that. Two had gray, runny meat. The others were dry and not at all sweet. Very disappointing, especially for $120."
