We are a young couple and were looking for good food with good atmosphere but we also have high food standards. We planned to walk through k.port and decide on a restaurant but an unexpected downpour forced us to drive and we found a spot across from Tia's. What a pleasant surprise- from the moment we walked in the staff... More

We had Sunday brunch there - Maine steamers (steamed long necked clams) and PEI mussels with chorizo and tomatoes fennel broth. Both were very good. We sat outside on the deck and enjoyed the view of Kennebunkport. Then as we were nearly done our salad (we ate it at the end if the meal) the sky opened. Even then the... More

We heard about happy hour from reviewers on TripAdvisor. My husband and I never shared happy hour together. We had drinks, oysters and some other appetizers including Tuna Tartare and Deviled eggs. It was a great place to unwind and enjoy the people as they walked around Kennebunk. Would definitely return for lunch/dinner!

I ate on the upper porch area and had a delicious swordfish and a very potent expresso martini. Yum!

We dined here on a weeknight and were seated pretty promptly. Our meal was outstanding: drinks, appetizers, and main course. Lobster very well prepared. We sat outside and had a nice view of Western Avenue. Highly recommended! Extra tip: our waitress recommended a close by parking location; parking in Kennebunkport is very limited!

The location was great, right on the main street in Kennebunkport. From the top deck, you have a great view of the river. The food is really good, they have great lobster specials :-) A must for dinner when you are in Kennebunkport.

We have been traveling to Maine for years and this was the first time we went to Tia's. I was driving by and noticed a sign for $1 oysters during happy hour. Maine has some of the best oysters. We stopped for happy hour and it was half priced drinks and of course dollar oysers. We ordered a dozen and... More

We go to this place every time we are in KB, and often multiple times. The location, the view, the service, and the food are all wonderful. It is a very inviting place, with lovely staff, and a perfect set-up. The whole operation is so perfectly set-up with many levels of seating including much outside. We've been here both in... More

My husband and I had dinner here twice, outdoors and indoors. I recommend the daily specials, our lobster and seafood pasta were excellent, also well priced. Good wine selection, friendly service and outdoor fireplace, great center of town location.

I must first say the view is great! Wait staff were good & the place is beautiful. But, we went there because we liked the menu on this site. Nothing like the one we had there which was disappointing. We did have an apetizer. Enjoyed it. They also would do No substitutions on the dinners. The menu should be changed... More
