Riptide by the Bay has decent specials, standard decor
Riptide by the Bay seems to get lost amidst all the other Thames Street bars and pubs in Fells Point.
I've walked by Riptide plenty of times but never seen many people inside the bar/restaurant/crab shack. I've only been inside once myself, when I stopped by a couple weeks ago on a Friday evening.
Riptide's decor is largely unremarkable, aside from the nice, big wooden bar back.
The mirror behind the bar has a few bumper stickers with cliche slogans on them, such as "Breast inspection 20 feet ahead (please have 'em out). Har, har, har.
The drink specials are the real reason to hit up Riptide. On Fridays, they have $2 light beers and rail drinks from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Here's a full rundown of the specials ...
These specials are all day Mondays-Thursdays, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Fridays and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
Mondays: $5 margaritas made with 1800 Silver or Jose Cuervo Gold tequila and $2 Corona Extras and Corona Lights.
