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.

Haddock sandwich was great and the crab roll was pretty good. Mac and cheese was flavorless and the noodles were a little overlooked. Clam chowder was the worst I ever had. I was so disappointed. It was like warm and the clams were shredded and minimal. Peach shortcake was good.

We were drawn to the bright colorful awning outside so we gave it a try. It is like a diner from a,few decades ago, simple basic food at prices more reasonable than most of Boothbay Harbor. Portions were just ok and the waitress was attentive. If we ever went back I think we would opt for just dessert since the... More

diner looked like something out of the 60's - was expecting a little bit more. A simple lunch that i couldn't even eat (burger was undercooked). Decor was dated and so was the service. I don't think i would ever go back.

Good house cooking, just like at grandma. The chowder is very good and chunky. The restaurant It needs a little cleanup. Very small seating area, not for large group or person. It is a charming little place, Julia Child's type. It's our 3rd visit but the 1st time we get a chance to come in. I suggest you go early... More
