What a nice place! If you visited this place several years ago, don't think it's still the same. New owners took over and it's a whole new world. Great food, great atmosphere, reasonable prices. On weekends, expect a wait because there aren't many decent restaurants in Chester, but it will be worth it. If it's a nice evening, eat out on the patio. It's clean, good service so sit back and enjoy the live music.
My favorite is the steamer sampler.....crab legs, clams, oysters, and shrimp. To die for! Another recommendation would be the scallops. I don't think I've ever had scallops cooked so perfectly. They're huge but they melt in your mouth.
Highly recommended. I think you'll be pleased.

Upon recommendations of friends, we stopped into this wonderful restaurant after visiting family in the area. It was a Saturday, and we did have to wait about 20 min. to get seated but it was well worth it! The food was wonderful and

This was our first visit to this restaurant, and there are many more to follow. Service was excellent. Food is so amazing and fresh. The owners are very personable and made sure that each of their customers are given a perfect experience. Cannot say enough good things about this great find in Chester. Great job to the owners and managers. Great job!!! Will be back many more times in the near future.

Pros: Brand new outdoor patio... Beautiful.

Cons: Had no room for anymore food.

We went on August 2, 2009 for lunch. The waitress dropped my silverware on the floor, and gave it back to me. If this what they do in the public eye, what are they doing in the private kitchen?

Great food and family atmosphere. The guys love the TV's. The addition of the full bar is great! I have eaten here numerous times and refer it to everyone I know. I love the linguine pescatore--absolutely the best! Even the hamburgers and homemade fries are terrific. I will definately be back with my whole family to continue to enjoy great food and great atmosphere. I like the fact that they accomodate large parties too!

My husband and I went to Riptides this past Saturday evening and we could not believe how much things had changed. We learned that they went under new ownership this past year. We could not get over how beautiful everything was. We loved the food and the service. Everything was wonderful. We live about 20 minutes away, and now we will be traveling across town to get to Riptides. We have finally found a great seafood restaurant, with people that really take note to their customers.

Food was bland, service was slow, would not recommend. Would recommend Fishbones or Red Lobster over this.

My family and I ate at Riptides last weekend and had a wonderful experience. We had a wonderful server, who catered to our children and us above and beyond. The fresh rockfish that we had was absolutely amazing. We had it stuffed with crab, and i can honestly say that it is the best that we have eaten. It is a family owned business and the owners are there throughout the evenings, working with their staff to make sure that everything falls into place. AND IT DOES!!! We had a great time!!! This is the third time of us eating there and it only seems to get better with every visit. I read below about a disgruntled customer, and i can honestly say that I have never seen a customer in there upset. Alot of our friends and family eat there on a regular basis and they only praise it. So way to go Riptides family and staff. We love your food and service. Keep doing what you are doing, because you are the best kept secret in Chester.

Our appetizers were delicious and came pretty quickly but it went down hill from there. We had to wait over an hour for our food. The waitress came to us and apologized for the wait but our dishes were being plated. 15 minutes later we finally got our food. One member of our party ordered fish broiled and got it fried. So he had to send it back. Then my mom's rockfish (the special for the evening) was way over salted and she had to send it back. The rest of our food was luke warm. One member of our party was a culinary trained chef and swears the rockfish was not rockfish. We complained to the manager and were told that she took the rockfish off the check already and there was nothing else she could do. We should have ordered our food quicker and sent back our food if it wasn't warm enough was her response. The manager never once came to the table on her own - after waiting an hour, and having to send two dishes back. We will never eat there again.

Have truly enjoyed the wonderful new look and the overall quality of the visit. Very friendly staff and good fresh made food. Wish I could go everyday. Expect it to be busy as news has spread.

We have been very pleasantly surprised at the wonderful food that Riptides has...much better than even the seafood places we've tried at VA Beach. Nice atmosphere and excellent service. The crab dip is great if you like it a little spicy. I personally like the reasonably priced fried oyster meal.

This place is one of the only places you can go to get fresh raw bar, great specials, and fast good fried or broiled seafood combos. I would even tell my mom to eat here and she is one of the best chefs I know!
