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.

We went for dinner at Tides the first evening that we arrived in Kennebunkport. It's tricky finding the way to Tides, so make sure you have good driving directions. The restaurant overlooks the beach and has a very relaxed atmosphere. Great seafood selections and friendly service.

Being going there for the last 30 years and although the inn has been renovated and the food transformed it is still a lovely place to enjoy drinks on the porch overlooking Goose Rock beach and good, fresh crab and lobster dishes. The service by friendly students could be more focused but nevertheless they aim to please.

As kennebunkport locals, we look forward to the tides opening every year. The cocktails are always amazing, best margarita ever, and lunch is to die for.
