Because Tides Beach Club is so difficult to get a reservation, you might think the food is super fantastic. Well, I would say it comes really close. I had the corn and crab chowder to start and the swordfish entree. Both were outstanding. Will let you decide for yourself, but all those people who make it impossible to get into... More

Went for drinks and apps last night. The service was great, drinks were a good size and the apps were terrific. Crab cakes were awesome and the fries were good too! What a nice quaint place to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon. We are locals and we will be back!

We had dinner here during our recent stay. While presented well with potatoes and veggies, my steak was of poor quality for the price. Smaller portions. The location is beautiful, but the restaurant was hot and stuffy It would be nice if the windows could be open to enjoy the ocean breeze.

The food was good, but I wouldn't go their food. The ambience is great and they are right across the street from the beach so you have a magnificent view. Goose Rocks Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches I've seen.
