We loved Tia's. We found this gem on the first day of our honeymoon last summer (June 2013). They had 1/2 price drinks (except wine) all afternoon. We made it a daily stop. :) The service was impeccable. Honestly, my husband enjoyed the male staff just as much; the server we had was an avid fisher, and they talked alot... More

We decided to try someplace new during our annual trip to the Kennebunks. We were impressed right away with the beautiful water views and the friendly staff. We stopped first by the patio firepit overlooking the waterfor a cocktail before dinner, and saw a beautiful sunset. We then moved inside to the cozy dining room. We loved the menu, including...

We decided to try it on a whim and were very pleased. We dined inside as it was chilly. The decor was very nice. The pub type menu was very good and my burger was very good. Best of all was the bread pudding for dessert. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. It was a very nice meal... More

If you can get a spot on the deck, by all means do! except for the extra hot Bloody Mary I couldn't drink - they agreed and brought me another thankfully, they service was tops, and the homefries were the best I've ever had!

This restaurant started off really well a year or so ago. What happened since is a mystery. It`s now no more than a roadhouse in a fairly pricey décor.

Tia's is a great addition to the area. Great place to sit outside on their patio or porches with friends and a cocktail. Prices are a bit steep for the food but they have a nice happy hour from 3-6 pm. Loved the tuna burger and the staff were very friendly. Will definitely go back. Bruch is great as well... More

This restaurant is technically in Kennebunk not Kennebunkport but it is not important. We ate here twice while visiting the area. Lunch was fabulous - had the Lobster flatbread, very good. We returned on Sunday and they had brunch menu's - I had Frangelica infused french toast - OMG and my wife had a Lobster Omelet - both were outstanding.... More

We had a great evening at Tia's Topside that included a bottle of wine and excellent steak and swordfish entrees. The Service was also very good. Too bad the weather was bad because Tia's has really nice outdoor seating...but they are prepared for Inclimate weather. Indoor seating was a problem when there is a party going on upstairs...very loud and... More

We were touring this lovely town and looked up and saw a most inviting site. There was an outdoor patio with highboys and lounge chairs just beckoning to us. It was their happy hour and our 1/2 price martinis were fantastic. We ordered the fried green beans (can't be unhealthy, right?) which were delish. We sat and people-watched and had... More
