not fancy, just good food

My wife and I were there last night and were very satisfied with our experience. If you are looking for a swanky seafood place, this ain't the place to go. The exterior is a little rough, as is the interior. The plates, forks and knives are from The Christmas Tree Shoppe, but the food is very good... read more

I have eaten here numerous times after spending the morning on the water fishing. It is located right next to the boat ramp making it a great place for a beer and seafood after trailering your boat.

Very casual and pleasant by the water...lovely views of the lobster boats...away from the crowds. Delicious seafood, especially the steamers, fried haddock, and the amazing fresh salad with lobster (lots of large pieces). Lots of tourists and locals alike makes for a lively and friendly environment in this seasonal venue. You can sit inside (all seating with water views) or... More

Sometimes we gamble on small restaurants just to find one like this - a true "hidden gem". We passed on the huge Clambake restaurant in favor of the very small Rising Tide and we ended up with a truly memorable meal. I debated on a 5 star rating, but this is really not a "5-star type" super-elegant place - just... More

My husband and I have been to Rising Tide three times in the last couple of months. First time, I wanted some steamed clams...we had gone to another local spot where they were asking 22 dollars for two pounds of clams...being local we knew how much of a mark up that was and just couldn't do it. We just happened... More

We return year after year for their outstanding seafood chowder. Don't ignore their other offerings as their crab and lobster rolls are quite tasty as well. Rustic setting right on a working harbor of Pine Point.

The Rising Tide is a wonderful little restaurant with beautiful views of the Saco harbor and what we've been calling the poop deck since childhood. Always a wonderful meal with excellent service!

It wasn't opening time yet but there were 22 of us waiting for them to open up for lunch. Not sure how it is on a normal day but the wait staff, chefs and the hostess were up for the crowd. Everyone was pleasant and professional and brought drinks, flatware etc. as they took everyone's order. After looking at all... More

This is a beach restaurant. Nothing fancy but the food is fabulous. The portions are large for the money and well prepared. Would recommend to all who are in the area. I make it a point to go there a few times each summer.

I have been here twice in the past few weeks. Both times we waited 15-30 min. The food is worth the wait and prices are right. The young wait staff is upbeat and they move fast to cover several tables each (but were we never felt rushed). The lobster and steamers ($19.99) were cooked perfectly and the steamers were sweet....
