Stopped in for lunch on a quiet Sunday. I had the fish chowder (thin broth, not that flavorful) that was packed with haddock and potatoes. Served with stale saltine crackers instead of oyster crackers. Tried the fish and chips. Don't bother. Skimpy, cut up pieces of cod with a bland batter and unimpressive crinkle cut french fries. There were more... More

Stopped in the Ebb Tide Restaurant for lunch while walking around the town and so glad we did! An quaint, old-time place with great food. We had fish and fries - very good! Also had to buy one of their homemade desserts to take along - a cinnamon roll. Yummy!

We found the Ebb Tide to be a nice place to eat while visiting Boothbay Harbor for lunch on 9/7/14. The food was tasty. The table we sat at had a nice window view of the shops on the street and part of the harbor. The prices were affordable. The waitress seemed to be on her own that day with... More

We were looking for a reasonably priced restaurant for a quick supper and this place looked great from the menu we viewed outside. The food was beyond bland. My husband ordered fish and chips. The fish was cut into small pieces with a greasy batter and looked more like chicken nuggets. The fries looked like something you would purchase in... More

Food was good, but if you ordered Ice Tea they charged you for another drink if you wanted a refill.

The staff was friendly and efficient - the food was good - and they were kid friendly - the eggs seemed truly farm fresh - yummy and quick.

We tried breakfast here this past week. We were in town for a work commitment and a few of us tried out this spot on the recommendation of a local. The waitress was helpful and asked us from the get-go how we wanted to split up checks etc, which was thoughtful. We tried an assortment of food. Reasonably priced food... More

Been visiting Ebb Tide since I was a kid when we visited Boothbay Harbor (first by water, later by land). The food is just as I remember it!

The ship models are fantastic, and the wait staff is friendly. But the food is a disappointment. We have gone with our grandchildren each summer, but I doubt we'll go back.

Ebb Tide gives you decent diner-type food at a very reasonable price. Pretty tight seating area, but serves the purpose. Always worth a visit.
