    This is always one of my favorite restaurants in the East Valley. The food was excellent as usual and I feel that the prices reflect fair value for the quality of their meals. My only slight mark downs after this visit were that the service was a bit off and the booth we sat at is my least favorite. It’s the first one on the left immediately after you pass the hostess station. But we were a party of five, so we did need the space. Which was great.

    We are fairly regular customers here and always pleased with the meals and service. I like observing the demeanor of other diners in the restaurants I patronize. You can usually pick up signals that speak to the products and service. The clientele I see in High Tide are always in a good mood and seem happy to be there. As a transplanted Long Islander and an unapologetic Blue Point Oyster snob, I can assure you that the Blue Point Oysters at High Tide are legit. Not something else from someplace other than the Great South Bay masquerading as Blue Points. After leaving the east for Arizona I was resigned that I would never have another Blue Point so you can imagine that I consider the oysters to be the star of the show at High Tide. They are fresh, cold, crisp, sweet and delicious. If raw oysters are not your thing, there are plenty of other seafood options to enjoy as well as beef short ribs, pork chops or chicken wings. I've enjoyed the crab cake, the steamed black mussels, the Yellow Fin tuna and the calamari. Never disappointed. The bartender introduced me to a really good Hendricks Martini with cucumber...something else for me to be a snob about now. Make a reservation and enjoy....Recommended!

    Nice variety on menu. Wine too expensive. Linguini and clams were in a thick cream sauce which was quite fishy tasting and six clams were unopened. Last time clams were in garlic butter sauce/broth which I much preferred.

    The food at High Tide does not disappoint. The Chilean Sea Bass was excellent! The other three diners has: Seared Ahi Tuna, Salmon and chopped salad with shrimp. All were happy with their meals. Save two bucks on draft beer if you are there during happy hour. Our server was extra attentive and very personable. For those that normally avoid San Tan because of density, the restaurant has lots of nearby parking and the restaurant is easily accessible. We will definitely return.

    Food was good, no salads came with the meal. Margarita was yeech. And the scallop dish was a little on the salty side. Crab cakes were the best part of the meal. Sea bass meal was a little scippy, lots of room on the plate.

    High Tide did an exceptional job with their 10th Year celebration. The special on oysters on the half shell was awesome and the serves performed by John make it a super night. We invited a guest who required assistance with breaking a one pound lobster apart to properly eat the entree.

    Our server Dan made this a special visit today. It was High Tide's 10th Anniversary, so was very crowded. Dan was friendly, super efficient, and very informative as he warned us how far back in the oyster line we were as we waited for our 20 oysters for $20 -yeah! Dan never rushed us as we leisurely went through drinks, oysters and entree's, making for a simply wonderful day. Thanks Dan, shuckers and kitchen staff! p.s doggy bagged seafood enchiladas make for the best breakfast you have ever had!

    We were excited to go for the 10th anniversary celebratiion and were looking forward to the "Food & Drink specials" they advertised. Well, there were no food & drink specials when we got there. They just had their regular happy hour that didn't start until 3pm and no food specials except the oysters that they listed as a separate special, which we weren't interested in. My husband & I both tried something different this time & were a little disappointed. I ordered the seafood enchilada & it was served in sort of a bowl & had red beans & rice on the side. The enchilada tasted good but was hard to eat out of a bowl. I like spicy food, but the red beans were the spiciest I had ever eaten. They left a very hot after taste that kept getting hotter. My husband got the liguini with clams & the clams tasted a bit fishy, but was pretty good overall. The pasta didn't come with bread or anything on the side, which we thought was unusual. Next time we will go back to the sea bass, fish & chips or strawberry salad that have always been very good.

    Our waiter was very good. But the time it took from the kitchen was horrible. It took 50 minutes to get our appetizer. It took another 45 minutes to get our meal. We got a tier tower. It smelt as soon as it was placed on the table. Fresh seafood should never smell. (Even raw) The shrimp on the tier was bad. It had my stomach up set the rest of the day. My fried oysters were good. But for our anniversary it was not a good experience.
