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

I didn't have breakfast, but we tried the lunch. My recommendation would be to skip lunch and eat dessert. The peach cobbler is to die for and the blueberry pie is delicious, too. My family members kept returning there, also choosing to eat dessert rather than the full meal.

During our week's vacation in Boothbay Harbor, we had breakfast here twice and dinner once. We loved breakfast here, and the cinnamon rolls are so good! I had the ham & swiss omelet; it was delicious! The waitresses are great and my coffee cup was never empty. I recommend this place for a great breakfast. And their chowder is terrific,... More
