Rips is known for its ties to local community for the past 60 years. Restaurant, Wine and Spirits Store, and Deli all come together to give each customer a taste of what family means. Bowie lies close to Annapolis, Baltimore, and Washington D.C. so our facility offers people a central meeting place with a friendly atmosphere.

Not only unique in location, the restaurant is unique in décor- remembering the days when Bowie was central to the horse racing circuit. Booths look like horse stalls and the exterior resembles a barn. Many customers love requesting their favorite booth, such as Seabiscuit or Man O' War.

Family owned and operated, the restaurant personifies "home away from home..." Customers are greeted with smiles and welcomed with opened arms. All customers are treated as family- from the customers that dine with us regularly to the first time customers. No one is ever turned away from our table.

We pride ourselves on fresh and home-made food. Everything is cooked from scratch. We offer comfort with a kick- those homemade favorites that have just a little something more. We also offer an array of steaks and seafood dishes that entice the palate. Our food is meant to be enjoyed and we thoroughly hope you do. The uniqueness of our facility doesn't end with smiling faces and home cooked food.

Having the Wine and Spirits Store attached we are uniquely able to offer wines at retail price. You can buy bottles of wine from our restaurant for the same price as the Wine and Spirits Store.

Our family strives to make your dining experience with us as special as possible. Come in and let us WOW you.
