Perfectly prepared fish--with many options of style. Varied and yummy menu. We loved the brussel sprouts appetizer (which we chose to enjoy during our main course (steak and lobster for my friend and halibut for me). Staff was very attentive to us. We would come gladly return.

The fish and chips was heavily breaded but the calamari and Brussels sprouts were on point.

Fish was very good. Broccoli was a little undercooked. The advertised add-ins with the kale/quinoa salad were almost non-existent and the salad was one note, missing the mark and overpriced. Service was slow although there seemed to be plenty of waitstaff and not a full restaurant. Our waiter, while congenial, disappeared for long periods. Tidewater previously always seemed a good value, a known quantity for a pleasant evening, and now perhaps not so much.

Always a good experience at Tidewater. Our table was next to the kitchen which was my only complaint but we could’ve had other tables but this one was the most comfortable and I picked comfort over location.

Eli was our server and did a fabulous job explaining the specials and entrees. We shared a shrimp cocktail. My husband had the crab meatballs and creamy coleslaw. He said both were excellent. I ordered the lobster rolls and fries. The lobster was chopped finely and had a large amount of paprika. The rolls were grilled perfectly.

For a thirty dollar entree I would have expected more than two little shrimp, two little scallops and two small pieces of fish. The salmon and cod were overcooked and dry and everything was too salty.

Don't be hesitant to choose this exquisite seafood restaurant just because you are in land-locked Charleston WV. The seafood is flown in daily. The service is always great as the servers are seasoned and provide a great experience. The food is wonderful. Try the jerked shrimp appetizer. Everyone loves the Greek salad, but I always get house salad because I can't get enough of the yogurt dressing. Fresh fish fixed as you like it and a lovely wine list. Love this place. Great outdoor dining/people watching too.

Seafood quality of food was poor. I had the worst scallops ever--overcooked and tasted like they had been frozen. The shrimp and scallops dish was swimming in a 1/4 inch of very buttery sauce--terrible. The prime rib that my husband had was better. This was our second trip. The first time we ate here was several days earlier. had the lobster bites which were OK. My husband had the lobster roll which was also poor quality. So he wanted to try a beef dish and was more pleased.

Good table for our needs but even though the restaurant seemed slow our server was mostly absent. Took her time getting our drink order and food was even slower coming out. Don't remember inquiry about an appetizer. Our party was there during happy hour but happy hour is available only to those seated in the bar area. Note there is not enough bar seating especially for a larger group. For the most part the food was as expected, generally good, except the last two times we have visited this restaurant there has been an issue with raw broccoli. In years past it was always cooked perfectly, not overdone but not raw as it seems to be now. The restaurant does have a nice birthday promo which makes us want to frequent it also at other times but not on their "miss" evenings. This occasion was definitely a miss, not up to their usual, hoping it is a fluke.

My husband and I both ordered a seafood dish, and we were both very disappointed in the quality of the seafood especially the swordfish and salmon. We had eaten at Tidewater in previous years, and we had always enjoyed it. This time was very disappointing.

Food has always been good here from Calamari to salads to steaks, chicken and seafood, to their new Brussel sprouts. Service is usually good but this Day, our waiter forgot that salads come with the enteees, didn't offer more water, seemed at a loss when we said we didn't have silverware and he actually had to hunt for silverware. Maybe he was just newer there. I'll still go back though.
