Food options on Pensacola Beach on a holiday are limited. Riptides was great though! They offered their regular menu and had we waited a bit longer, they also offered a special Thanksgiving buffet which sounded fantastic. The food from the menu was good (nothing fancy or signature) and the service was not bad. We left with our bellies full. :)

We went in late October and had the best time! My hubby had the spam omelette and liked it pretty well. I had the fish tacos which were great. Gorgeous view, fun lazy river and plus the monarch butterfly migration was going on and it was enchanting to sit there and eat while they landed on your chair!

Nice place. Good breakfast! The food is priced too high. Staff is friendly and pleasant. We always get burgers out on the pool deck. Pretty quick service.

We took advantage of the breakfast for guests of Holiday Inn Resort offered here, and it was great every morning. Also dined at the bar outside a couple of times, and food and drinks were delicious and reasonably priced. The service was exceptional!

We arrived around 12:30 to check in and were hungry so we tried out the restaurant. The bacon cheeseburger was juicy. My husband loved the tomato soup and the toddler loved the pizza from the kids meal that came with fresh fruit. Kids eat free!

Have eaten there twice now for lunch in the past month. Both times I have had the chicken wings and so far they are the best on the beach. My wife had crab cakes and they were also very good.

I was wanting a specific drink and the waitress (I don't remember her name but she was blonde and pregnant, we went on 8/18) made sure that I got exactly what I wanted. She was very knowledgeable of the food and... More

My server was Olivia Perry. Olivia had an awesome ability to natural connect with the customer and provide excellent customer service. She was able to upsell the breakfast buffet and products on the menu without even trying. She was a true promoter of the Holiday Inn Resort. She went above and beyond the call of duty to assist us with... More
