Fresh seafood, good portions. We ate on the patio, twice. This hidden restaurant is much better than the tourist trap restaurants.

Went on a Friday night and got there right around 6p...just in time. It's a tiny place and many people were sent away by the wait. We got the last open table and I'm glad we did. The wife got the shrimp roll and I went with the lobster roll and a Shipyard. Both were excellent. Had the kids with... More

We have been going to the Rising Tide for 12+ years while visiting Pine Point. For our kids this is a must do and the vacation would be incomplete with out it! This year the food and ambiance was as good as any. Be forewarned that this is a "funky place" with a casual ambiance..... The lobster penne and the... More

Had dinner here twice on vacation. Reasonable price, good seafood, options for kids. Service was very good. The building itself is run down, but the views of the water are very nice. Eat outside if you can.

This is a busy little place, even though there is also outdoor seating. The food is fresh, the staff friendly and the service fairly fast. It's a nice local little place to eat. And the view of the bay is a bonus!

The Rising Tide is a family favorite we go to for lobster rolls every time I visit family at Old Orchard Beach. The setting is unbeatable and so very Maine, and we love the fact that you assemble your own rolls with as much or as little mayo as you want, and the coleslaw and potato salad are good, too....
