Riptides Sports Grill on Pensacola Beach #TravelReview

Riptides Restaurant Review Crew

If you are looking for a great place to eat on Pensacola Beach, then you need to stop in Riptides Sports Grill. My husband just celebrated his 35th birthday in March, to celebrate I wanted to take him to one of his favorite restaurants, Riptides Sports Grill, located in the Pensacola Beach Holiday Inn Resort. With a big family it can get a little pricey so that’s why I love!

Restaurant Gift certificate

With, I was able to get a $50 certificate, off $100 or more purchase, for only $20. That’s like earning $30 to go out to eat. They offered from $10 up to $100 off. While you do have to make the minimum purchase, it works out for us. If we are going to go eat somewhere we easily meet the minimum, so we loved the savings.

Family birthday lunch

We all looked over the Riptides Sports Grill menu and, of course, could barely decide what we wanted. With offerings like wipeout nachos and beer cheese soup (our favorite) for appetizers, burgers, salads, sandwiches, desserts, and even a kids meal, Riptides definitely has something for everyone. If you are more of likes to eat out in the morning kind of person, no worries, they have breakfast too. Because their burgers sounded delish, that is what most of us went for, but we had some chicken wings, fish tacos, and shrimp thrown into the mix.

Burgers at riptides

While we waited for our meals, we stared off with the Griddle Fries, which are crispy fries tossed on the griddle with three cheeses & topped with bacon bits, jalapeños, sour cream & green onions! If you like spicy, this is for you, it was packed with jalapeños! My husband, the birthday boy, went with the Riptides Amber Tacos. The shells were grilled flour tortillas and came with lettuce, tomato, shredded cheese, salsa, Cilantro sour cream.  You then got to choose your meat which was either fried mahi, gilled chicken, or pulled pork! They were so good!

Several of us got the Kim Joy’s custom burger which is grilled black angus beef burger with cheese and your choice of 4 toppings. I went with a fried egg, onions, and bacon of course! My kids shared a basket of buffalo wings, while they get them in mild you get a choice of: hot, medium, mild, BBQ, honey BBQ, Teriyaki, sweet Thai chili, lemon pepper, Italian or Cajun roasted garlic.

I have to admit, we did have a few hiccups, but our server was very kind and patient and even ended up giving us a discount because the food took quite sometime to make it out to us. We didn’t mind, though, because of March Madness we were able to sit and enjoy the games that were on. I love the feel of Riptides Sports Grill, very beachy. If the weather is nice they even offer outdoor seating (we will be taking advantage of that this summer for sure). Each booth has it’s own television, so you can turn it to a kids channel to keep them entertained if the food is taking a bit of time, like ours did. Overall, our experience there was great and it’s definitely a restaurant we will be visiting again (and again). Next time you are in the Pensacola Beach area, I highly suggest stopping in to enjoy a meal at Riptides Sports Grill. But first, make sure you

So, head over to to get the discounted price!
