Loved the full breakfast. We were seated promptly and the server was very friendly and accommodating. We left full and happy!

We had a nice lunch before our boat trip - my sandwich was your typical fish sandwich but tasted fresh. My sister-in-law had an omelette that she was not happy with, and my mother-in-law loved her French toast. I've been to the Ebb Tide before, and it's always place you can count on for a good meal.

Open at 7 am with about a half dozen locals soon seated. Three egg ham and cheese omelet was very good with big chunks of ham and just the right amount of swiss cheese. Eggs cooked right. Blueberry muffin also very good. Bottomless coffee promptly refilled and friendly waitstaff. Prices reasonable. What more can you ask for breakfast?

We just stopped in for pie and coffee, the blueberry pie was delicious. Wish we had had time to return to sample others, the coffee cream looked amazing, and the ladies at Capers told us the peach shortcake is legendary! Excellent stop, old wooden booths looking out over the street, lots of fun, and good service!

Standard diner restaurant type fair. We had 1 meal here during our week stay in Boothbay. Wife had a breakfast and I did a lunch. Pancakes wife had were good, but the hamburger I had was a greasy and most likely came from the freezer. The place just seems a little lackluster

Ebb tide hasn't changed in 35 years, still puts out very good food, small but very big in personality, same wait staff as 30 + years ago

We went to Ebb Tide for the desserts and were pleased with the bread pudding, peach dessert and chocolate dessert. Fun talking with the waitress who had been in the USA from Turkey for only 4 days on an exchange program.

We came here twice in 5 days that we were in town. The cinnamon rolls were really good. The waitresses were all awesome. Kind of feels like an old fashioned diner, but not. Check it out.
