Soft shelled blue crabs with a gorgeous view

Good service, beautiful location, fairly average food. Plenty of parking, nice people. The bar is rowdy and loud (fun!)but the inside dining room was cool, serene, and the view still spectacular. The staff are friendly, accommodating, and efficient. The food is quickly forgettable.

To begin this review, I should mention I'm biased. I've been a seafood fan all of my life. My favorite dishes are shrimp, crab, lobster, and the like. Done properly, they're heaven on a plate. Having said that, I went to Havre de Grace this morning for a trip to the Concord lighthouse. I'd never been to one but love... More

We stopped here on Friday for lunch. We sat outside. The day was hot but the umbrella provided the needed shade. We split the crab dip as an appetizer! This is a must! It was fabulous. I had the steamed shrimp appetizer as my lunch. My husband had the crab cake sandwich. Lots of crab, little filler, just as it... More

The Tidewater is right on the water on the river side. there is outdoors seating but the wait was very long, about 60 minutes. They do not take reservations for the outdoors seating. I had the little neck claims and the sea food, both were very good. My wife is Vegan and they did not have much for her, only... More

My friend and I stopped by to grab some drinks and sit outside on the deck. It was a Tuesday afternoon, and very slow. The hostess informed us the outside seating was for customers who wish to order food. I understand this rationale during peak hours, but it was unnecessary when business is slow. We were offered a dumpy concrete... More

I had eaten here with a very good friend 15 or 20 years and the memory of a good meal and exceptional view stayed with me. So last week I was travelling with friends from New York to North Carolina and persuaded the others to stop for lunch. The view of the Susquehanna meeting the Chesapeake was awesome with the...

We have enjoyed this restaurant for at least 15 years. The view of the Susquehanna River and Chesapeake Bay is fantastic. The food is always good to excellent. Our favorites are the Crab Cakes, Pulled Pork with coleslaw and the seafood specials. Now for the reasons we will think twice about driving 45 minutes for dinner at The Tidewater. We... More

We were in town for a family wedding and the staff was very accommodating to all of us by pushing tables together and seating us outside for brunch

Eight friends met here to celebrate a birthday. This was our first brunch and third time at the Tidewater Grille. The food and service were great. The eggs benedict with black fores ham and crabmeat was wonderful!

On a recent visit with family in Maryland, a MUST stop was for seafood - specifically Maryland crab cakes. We were not disappointed with our visit to this lovely restaurant. The food was great - several in the party got the crab cakes while others dug into other seafood musts - shrimp, etc. We had several appetizers that included a... More
