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....

I have to say this is one of the best places for lobster and fried clams and fried haddock! They even have chicken and burgers for the non- sea food people!! The portions are large and the view is awesome! They have a small deck over looking the marina. The restaurant is very quaint and relaxing and Nicolette our waitress... More

I grew up in OOB,so my husband and I are natives to the area. We have eaten in all of the local seafood places, except this one. Last night we decided to "try it out". the clams were way over cooked and not juicy. The scallops were very good and I would probably order them again. My husband had the... More

The crabmeat was so fresh, with mayo on the side rather than having it pre-mixed. Delicious. Another diner in our group had steamed lobster and steamed clams which he thought it was superior to many other lobster meals he's ordered at other restaurants. This restaurant has the true flavor of "Downeast Dining" right on the ocean. Super all around.

This restaurant is in a nice setting, overlooking a small harbor with a mix of motor and sail pleasure craft and fishing boats. Inside and out it's not much to look at. There is outside seating which affords a good view of the goings-on in the harbor. The inside seating area is very small, perhaps 10 or 12 tables. My... More

I brought some friends visiting from out of town to this restaurant and we all couldn't stop raving about the meal afterwards! I enjoyed the clam strips very much and my friends devoured the lobster, scallops, and steamers. The menu also has several non-seafood options (burgers, for example) so everyone is sure to find something they like. The place is... More

We found this place by complete accident. Yup. It's an older building. Sure, it could use some structural improvements but to me it added to the character of the entire experience. Short & to the point here. Best Seafood Chowder I think I've ever had. A mix of haddock, clams and shrimp. The fried haddock sandwich was great as well.... More
