My wife received a $100 gift card last Christmas good at The Tides restaurant. We got dressed and paid them a visit. We were out for a good time. Usually we don't order appetizers but this time we did. We usually don't have more than one cocktail but this time we did. We almost never order deserts but this time... More

Always I ask myself "why don't I come here more often?" When dining at the Tides! We dined outside; unbeatable weather: 80F with a breeze; (on November 12th!) we had the specials: curried carrot soup: marvelous; Pompano: outstanding, cooked to perfection; tuna: delightful. Too satiated to have desert.... Feeling blessed to have been able to enjoy this wonderful meal in... More

The Tides lived up to every five star review we read about it. The staff was very knowledgeable friendly and helpful. But more importantly we just couldn't get enough of every bite. We ordered fish and lamb and it was expertly prepared.

Great service, great food, wonderful atmosphere in our beautiful town! My husband and I have lived in VB since 2003. This was our first visit to The Tides and we loved it! We were under the impression that it would be stuffy and pretentious, but we were happily surprised by this cozy restaurant with a friendly staff.

Very interesting and homey set-up. Our mea,l soup of the moment, grouper special, macadamia nut crusted yellowtail snapper was perfectly seasoned, cooked, and the presentation was very well done. The desserts, a trio of creme brulee and toffee bread pudding was a delight. A definite must try and must return to dining destination. We got an excellent service ... our... More

We have visited the Tides many times and we thought we would try their "Sunset Menu" before it was suspended for the season, Nov. 1- Mothers Day. This was not the usual "Early Bird Special" The menu was varied, it included specials, and it met all the superlative expectations that brings us back to The Tides time and again. The... More
