This great seasonal seafood shanty in the Pine Point section of Scarborough is tucked away behind the Pine Point Fishermen’s Co-Op oceanside next to the boat launch and near the docks where the fishing boats offload their catch. It’s away from the crowds at OOB and at the restaurants out on Route 1. It is open May to October. It’s... More

Food and service here was very good. Went on a Friday night and the wait was about an hour. Be aware there is no area to wait inside the restaurant. You wait outside overlooking the water and fishing boats. Great view at sunset. They do have a small service bar where you can order drinks and they allow you to... More

I'm from the Midwest so I knew if I was in Maine for a day, I could not pass up a chance at a lobster. I found this restaurant on tripadvisor since everyone I talked with were no help at all. It was well worth the drive down from Portland because it was exactly what I was looking for, a... More

A no frills place to eat out on a deck and watch the boats come in. Lobster was superb! Our waitress seemed to forget about us while we watched a couple of other parties get waited on who came in after us, but all was okay.

We were staying at The Atlantic Birches Inn, Old Orchard Beach and found out about this restaurant through our inn keeper. We arrived at Rising Tide about 5:30pm and had a short 20 minute wait. Our server Adam was very friendly and even helped by taking a family photo shot of us at the table. The food was delicious and... More

Went because of reviews about how great the fresh seafood was and its great view. We found that the seafood was good, arrived crisp and hot. However, all the sides that it came with were meh. French fries and onion rings did not arrive hot and the coleslaw was flavorless. Would not go back, nothing special.

We ate there today and found the service to be unfriendly, bordering on rude. Our waitress brought us the wrong order and tried to insist we were the ones that were wrong. From that point on, we were basically ignored...our water had to be reordered twice. The food was not spectacular either. Try another restaurant in the area.

We have been going to this small seafood restaurant for years. We try to make it outside each time at one of the five tables so we can eat and watch the harbor at the same time. Since it is adjacent to the lobster fisherman's shop, lobster is always on the menu in many forms..

This place is very small so keep that in mind. We had a party of nine and it took over an hour to get seated but waiting was half of the fun! We walked to the end of the pier and watch people that were fishing. The tide was changing and it was really amazing to see how fast the... More
