Great meal...get rid of cheap head lettuce!

We heard great things about Tidewater,locally known for their Greek salad. Our meals were good, service was nice except they didn't offer me fresh pepper, which is a must. No salt or pepper was on the tables. We paid to have a Greek salad side with our meals and it was fabulous! So, our next... read more

I first ate at Tidewater in the early 80s. It was a buzzing restaurant and still seems to be. It is a disappointment. Let's start with the ambience: it is loud, boisterous and not at all romantic, if that's what you're looking for. The fish and sides are WAY overpriced and mediocre at best. For a restaurant that tries to... More

This restaurant is consistently good! My favorite is clam chowder. As the name suggests, they grill the fish, in addition to steaming, baking or broiling. The atmosphere is "old courthouse." This means that there's a lot of dark wood; it's two blocks from the county courthouse. Many professionals go there for lunch daily. The food is great, the service is... More

We used to love this place for their fried oysters. We were in today and oysters were a little soggy. Tried their corn spoon bread as a side, it was a dried out, crumbly piece of cornbread. I requested a different side. Very disappointed especially since I chose this place for my birthday.

My friend & I went into Tidewater in the Town Center Mall Charleston WV- we were greeted very kindly- serviced and attended to very quickly! The waitress was very very nice & checked on us often. The food was delicious! The bread was so so fresh & yummy! Seafood lovers paradise!

The food was very good. The calamari, prime rib and seafood specials were great. The wait staff were especially friendly despite being swamped. Would definitely recommend.

So its great food but its a bit pricey. But what you get is worth it, the salmon is excellent. One thing is defenitly wrong it gets loud in the actual restaurant so during the warmer months I would suggest eating on the patio.

Have been coming here for years usually get the same thing everytime. I got the seafood grill platter with salmon scallops and swordfish. I always substitute my salmon for scallops. When my plate came it was 4 little bay scallop sized (sea scallops) and 4 more on a skewer the size of miniature marshmallows. Usually they are the size of... More
