We were seated out on what I assume is the “sunroom.” It was cold and drafty. We enjoyed the meal but didn’t feel anything was exceptional. I’d give it a neutral recommendation, not overly great but nothing outstandingly bad.

Enjoyable ‘date night’ dinner. Chili calamari quite nice as was Caesar salad. Entrées were surprisingly generous. Modest wine list, a bit on the high side, but acceptable.

Lovely restaurant. But noise level was a bit high. Open bar which meant that noise and music traveled through our. Staff was very courteous. Food was excellent. Wine by glass selection was small but well designed.

Food was better than in the past. Drinks were excellent. Very beach bar noisy! If you don’t have a table on the porch with an ocean view, I would pass.

Such a unique, cozy atmosphere! Charming & all things east coast. Prepare for slower pace & relaxed dining. Our server, Anna was delightful. Preferred a tad more seasonings on cuisine. Meal of for 4 $250 (no drinks)

***First of all, the street number given on Opentable is incorrect! Should be 930 Kings Highway.
- Super bummed because we came for the lobster roll, only to learn it is served at lunch only.
- I ordered the burrata and pesto app for my entree instead. It was cold— would have been much more enjoyable if at room temp, or even better, if pesto was warm. But, more important, it came with only 2 small slices of toasted baguette . For $16. I asked for more and they did bring.
-My husband’s swordfish with squash and risotto was good.

The menu was very limited, with very ordinary selections. Food was disappointing for the money. Common food with uncommon prices. The service was mediocre with us having to ask for water & no flatware served with dessert. The dessert (apple crisp) was undercooked and too sweet with no real oat topping. The noise level was outrageous. Overall, a disappointing experience and embarrassing since we invited guests to join us for dinner. We will not return.

Excellent lunch served in a porch setting overlooking the beach. My wife's watermelon martini was perfect. I had the fried haddock sandwich with vinegar fries, very good. My only feedback is to go a bit lighter on the salt on the fries. We'll be returning to try their dinner menu in the near future.

After enjoying cocktails on the porch overlooking the Atlantic our foursome enjoyed a three-course dinner that was superbly served. Appetizers, entrees, and desserts were all delectable and appealingly presented. We’d dined at Tides in the past and very much look forward to returning.

It’s pricey but we love location, ambience and the bartender. Service and drinks are always great. Some items were good, others just ok. Mussels not that good. We’ve been wowed by the food on other visits there, but not this time.
