Great Food

The Tides is in a quieter part of Kennebunkport along a beautiful coastline. The food was excellent and everything looked good on the menu.

My girlfriend booked us a 6.30 slot at the restaurant - a little earlier than we had hoped but only due to the fact they were full any time after which is obviously a good sign!

Sitting across the street from beautiful Goose Rocks Beach, this restaurant has lovely views. We enjoyed drinks on the deck, dinner in the dining room, and lunch as well. We enjoyed the menu for all of these occasions. All was fresh and delicious and the services was warm and friendly. We look forward to going back!

Food is a good but expensive. Service varies greatly by the server. Some days are much better than others. Inconsistent. This is an A+ location operating at a B level because of young inexperienced staff and a lack of attention to the small things that make a big difference to a guest like good service and attention to detail.
