Riptides is great for breakfast and lunch. I ate there three times and every time, the food was great with very good flavor. Service was good but a tad slow...but you're on the beach so that goes with the relaxed feeling. Beverages were pricey and not spectacular...but go for the food...best bacon cheeseburger and omlette on the island!

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Resort(where the restaurant is located), and we honestly loved this place more than every other restaurant in the area. They have great service, great food, great prices, and an awesome atmosphere. I definitely recommend this amazing place,

The staff and food are both excellent. You can't ask for a better hotel restaurant. Kids eat free. Breakfast buffet.

First, our server Brittany was on top of her game as she was one of the BEST servers we have encountered in the area and extremely friendly. A must try is the Skye's the Limit Party Platter: beer battered gulf shrimp, calamari,buffalo chicken wings and BBQ ribs. This was an appetizer and could have been a meal for us both.... More

My husband and 2 kids ate here several times while staying at the Holiday Inn Resort. The smiley sandwich and sweet potato tots were great! My husband had their crawfish special they do on Sundays and said they were very good and the prices are right. Our seafood dinner was a tad over cooked but nothing we would complain about;... More

We were there for five days . Service on some days was good ,others not at all! Food was good, but not really anything for light eaters. Price was the same for small meals and appetizers as it was for a large meal. We went to the bar which for some reason closed at 10:00. What kind of bar closes... More

This is the little cafe in our Holiday Inn hotel. It was ok. Convenience was certainly the benefit. We had omelets which were good, but service slow. Just being honest.

The waitress was very polite and nice. I got the mahi mahi tacos and seeet potato tots, both were awesome. We probably won't be back to Pensacola but if we were, we'd come back.
