Always great

Been going to this place since the 80's on our summer visits to Booth Bay. Down home great food. Just a real nice family style place with great breakfast lunch or dinner!

I was SOOOO disappointed to hear that the Ebb Tide had its last day in Dec 2014. While I wish the owners all the best with their retirement, we absolutely LOVED going to Ebb Tide for breakfast on our trips up to Boothbay. In fact, the last trip we had for a 4 day weekend, we literally had Ebb Tide... More

First ate at the Ebb Tide almost 50 years ago. Still there and still great. Small and homey. Don't make em like they used to.

A very small place in the heart of Boothbay Harbor. They are open for all 3 meals but the breakfasts are the best. Always good blueberry pancakes and vry good cinnamon rolls and blueberry muffins. It is an intimate but comfortable little place.

Visiting with friends that live in town and walked downtown looking for a place for breakfast. Most things are closed this time of year and the tourists are gone but lots of locals eat here. Breakfast was good, nothing fancy and priced right. If you want a good price, don't expect a fireworks eye popping experience and just happy with... More

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
