Our dinner was delicious and the service was great, it has been a couple of years since we have been here, a lot has changed as to the menu, but we were very happy with our haddock and halibut dinners. You cannot beat the view!

While my last visit to the Tides was exceptional, last night was disappointing. Our waiter was very blasé and either ignored us or just kinda dropped things off without a nice word. No feeling of hospitality. My halibut was not as good as my other visit. I must say, the watermelon cosmos are divine and my friend loved her meal- though not the service. Most annoyingly, it was only 9 and they started cleaning, putting stuff away, making lots of clanging noise and yet ignoring us.
Burrata salad was amazing!

Our waiter Dave was great, the food was great except for the dessert pan a cotta which was rubbery. We had a great time but didn’t like sitting across from the stairs and bathrooms.

Our server, Dave M, was fantastic. Such a better experience than earlier this summer because Dave M was our server. We’d/we’ll specifically request one of his tables next time. Still miss some of last year’s menu items, but Dave was a delightful part of our experience.

We were very disappointed in this visit. We come to the Tides every summer and usually have a great meal. The menu has changed and isn’t as good as it used to be but worse than that was the service. It was very poor. Have two other upcoming reservations at the Tides that I’m going to cancel given how poor our experience was. Too bad as we love being able to walk to dinner.

The food was delicious but is you are going there for lunch plan ahead since there is no parking at the restaurant so the only parking is street parking. If you can find a space (we had to park at least a mile away), it’s $25.

Wonderful service and food was very good.

Dealing with parking is a hassle and requires permit bought ahead at Kennebunkport Town Office or at machine at beach itself (unless you are overnight guest at the Inn) for $20 for the day. We changed our timing to be there before they opened at 11 to enable getting one of us to airport with comfort. Feels like the intent is more towards walk-in from homes or summer rentals or Inn guests. But, we made it work.

Great to be there early and staff is uniformly wonderful. Food and drinks also wonderful. Sitting outside was great.

The location and the food are excellent. We had to wait a very long time before our server came over to take our order. One member of our party was already seated and had ordered a cocktail about 20 minutes before the rest of us arrived - he still hadn’t got his drink and it was probably another 15-20 more before he did. Our waiter was very nice, but forgot some of our drinks and dropped cutlery on is a couple times. We would have also appreciated an umbrella over our table - it was a beautiful day and very full indoors, so we were at an outside table in full sun throughout our meal. Only two umbrellas for all of the seating areas in the garden seems a little stingy. Overall I’d go back, but hopefully we’ll get lucky and find seats on the porch next time!

We enjoyed the drinks and ambience. However, the menu changes were a disappointment. Lobster spring rolls and the previous years’ entrees are the reason we return. We have the new menu a try, but it is not something we are racing to do again.
