Tia's is fantastic for outdoor dining. One of the best locations in downtown Kennebunkport for people watching from a distance. Atmosphere really goes a long way here. All the servers were extremely friendly and very helpful. Overall the meals in our party of ten ranged from excellent to average with more than half of the meals being average. I would... More

We stopped by Tia's twice around lunch time during our stay in Kennebunk. We sat at the bar both times. The bartenders were happy to share their thoughts on the drinks, and we got great beverages as a result! The staff was also very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. The food was tasty and the seafood... More

We sat outside on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in August, on comfortable rocking chairs looking at the scenic Kennebunkport River. This is a milkshake like drink which includes Bailey's Irish Cream, Kahula, ice cream, chocolate swirl (Hershey' syrup?) and whipped cream. The best part--1/2 price at Happy Hour. This was a large drink well worth the $4.75 they charged.

We found this restaurant to be well worth the trip. For a great value, we had twin lobsters that were fresh with delicious clam chowder. The staff was terrific. The reservation was made with helpful ease. The waitress was lovely and warm. The inside of the restaurant has beautiful seating everywhere with attention to detail without being pretentious. We sat... More

My wife and I ordered Oysters and Lobsters. The food was really good. The 1 lb 1/4 lobster was so fresh and sweet.

We stopped here thinking it would be too expensive by the looks of it, but found it affordably priced. Loved the view of the town from the third floor deck. Beer good. Food average or below, but we only shared a turkey club.

Good location, and always appeared busy. Our dinner was just fine, but not memorable. Portions were generous and the service was adequate. I have to remind myself that eating anywhere in tourist time that I shouldn't set my expectations too high. The prices were fair. Wished we had held out for an outside table. Like to make it 3 1/2...

My son got the twin lobsters and was in heaven. Only $20! Great fresh Maine seafood, a lovely outdoor dining area (but had to move inside when a storm came) and very friendly waitstaff. Nice convenient downtown location.
