We like this place as the burgers are excellent and the Lounge is frequented by locals with a penchant for hiding out. There are daily food specials. Just check the Menu which is posted inside. Friendly staff too!

I love the Riptide called the Ripper by the locals. This is were lobstermen and REAL workers go for a Beer and a Burger. the COLDEST BUD! and Pool tables. In the old days women DID not set foot in the place, not if you were a NICE girl! If you like getting to know locals, go here!!!!

This is a great place to drink and talk with your buddies. You won't be competing with bad music being blasted through a house PA system. I ordered a whiskey and the pour was generous, which was satisfying to witness. There are dart boards and 1 coin-operated pool table to keep you busy. However, as of late, this place has... More

This place is what it is. If you want to go meet real people that dont have an agenda, then the Rip Tide is for you. I love this bar and I don't drink. The food is cheap and the atmosphere is Americana. What to go to a martini bar and have a $20 cocktail, you will find plenty of... More

The only thing of value here is the Monday night burger and beer special, the state of art digital jukebox, and the $1.00 per game pool...my son and I carefully venture into this place to play pool as it is the only one in town. The owner is a cool guy too, but caters to essentially a "VFW" crowd that... More

The place is a dive bar, but it's clean, fun, and the drinks are made well and priced cheap! There's pool, darts, and fun people!

The RTL is a fun presumptuous place to go for great food and excellent drinks. Leave your American Express, MC, and Visa at home, they are not accepted here. This is a casual environment where people who work in the trades are welcome right off the job. This is a very simple, clean, and well run operation. Mostly locals are... More
