“not worth it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

yes this place may beautiful but the food and staff are not good. overpriced food and staff that could care less about their guests. this is the only place in kennebunkport that is never busy...so that is a sign. doubt it will last long.

“Can't wait to go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

Tia's Topside was a great spot to dine with our family. This restaurant is family friendly,and had a great atmosphere for adults as well. We went up to Kennebunk on Vacation this past fall and this was our favorite spot. The first time we came we had a delicious prime rib special, best I have had in a long time! We had also sushi and a bottle of wine, lots of variety we love that. We also came back for cocktails and sat out on the deck near a fire pit under the stars, it was amazing. Our whole family was impressed by Tia's Topside and can't wait to try it again. We live in Boston and frequent Tia's on the Long Wharf and highly recommend both!

“Great new addition to Kennebunk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

All this warm weather is getting me excited to visit Tia's Topside in the Spring! Me and a group of girlfriends came during Prelude. The place was gorgeous, heated patios, tiki torches and firepit, so pretty. We got a few appetizers and a few specialty drinks and all were delicious and not bad in price. I know this will be the hot spot this summer. I can't wait for Tia's to re-open.

“Tia's Topside is "Tops"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

My husband and I were in Kennebunkport for the Christmas Prelude and came across this amazing new restaurant just before we were to go over the bridge to Kennebunkport. We decided it was a "must do". We went to dinner there that night and were "blown away" by what had been done with this big old house. We sat down for a dining experience that was so incredible that even now when I think about it my mouth waters. The seafood sizzler was the best I ever had. My husband had scrod like he has never had before.

The service was warm and friendly and the owner/manager stopped by to make us feel welcome and to make sure our experience was a positive one. Tia's Topside is now a destination for us.

The weather did not allow us to take advantage of their outdoor patio, but we certainly will this spring.
