Winter time treasure, always good!

We visited the Tidewater for lunch on a cold February afternoon. The soup of the day was alligator gumbo, so of course someone had to try it! My husband and friend both thought it was perfect. I choose French onion soup, which I enjoyed immensely. We can recommend the crab cake, blackened salmon... read more

We often come here for lunch or dinner since my son enjoys their burgers when he's home from college. I enjoy eating on the patio when the weather is nice. My favorite is the crab cake or shrimp salad

Crab dishes were especially excellent. Crab hash, crabcakes and crab salad all were perfect. There was a good overview for lunch and breakfast and even brunch. a great location for us and our guests from Phila and 'Washington,DC So perfectly situated equidistant from both of us. Have returned severl times and always good and consistent.

My brother wants to go here everytime he is in town. They have the best food and awesome view of the water. The cobb salad is the best!

We were looking for a location between Philadelphia and Baltimore to get together with my wife's college roomates. We selected the Tidewater and what a great place. We had a great meal and the atmosphere and service were outstanding. We will be back again to enjoy the view.

I was here for lunch on a Saturday after Christmas and ordered from the lunch menu. The service was extremely slow. They seemed overwhelmed perhaps by a large party. It was so slow that it was recognized by the server who took off the cost of the soup (which was very good). But the long wait for a sandwich course... More

Have been going here for over 15 years. It is a little hard to find but worth it. Especially appreciated it this year when we were able to sneak away from the the Ripkin Tournaments for a few hours to enjoy a quiet all adult lunch. It is so peaceful here and the food is consistently good. The beauty, quiet,... More

Tidewater Grille in Havre de Grace is situated at the head of the Chesapeake Bay and the Susquehanna river. The atmosphere is charming and the food is fresh and delicious. Servers are very friendly and accommodating. It is not fancy. As a matter of fact, it is a vintage waterfront bar and restaurant frequented by tourists and locals alike.

Overpriced food served cold. Slow service. We were here on a Sunday night and I suspect the kitchen was very understaffed. Food had to be sent back because it was cold. The place was recommended for their crab cakes which were very expensive and had to be microwaved. What a rip-off! Would definitely not go back or recommend to others.

Stopped here on the way to Waldorf, MD. Too late to see the water but still worth it. Food and service were great, and the wine list was decent, too. We enjoyed salads and crab cakes and were not disappointed.
