Description: Tia's Topside is THE place to go when you are thinking of dining at a waterfront restaurant in Kennebuck Maine. Our customers sing our praises better and more effectively that we could. Read our Trip Advisor reviews and decide for yourself. "We decided to try someplace new during our annual trip to the Kennebunks. We were impressed right away with the beautiful water views and the friendly staff. We stopped by the patio firepit overlooking the water for a cocktail before dinner, and saw a beautiful sunset. We then moved inside to the cozy dining room. We loved the menu, including some unusual items like the sushi and the lobster flatbread, which we had as appetizers. Both were excellent and quite a bargain. Main courses were also excellent. Everything was so good that we returned for brunch (blueberry buttermilk pancakes) the next day, which were also great."

“Nice Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

Good lobster dinner and great spot to eat on the second floor outdoor patio. Sangria was ok, nothing special. I'd go back but if you haven't been to Davids KPT yet I would suggest you go there before Tia's.

“Best happy hour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

You really should take some time and stop here for happy hour after a busy day in town. The outdoor seating is in such a wonderful area! Servers are very nice and helpful. We just enjoyed drinks which were half priced and lounged while the foot traffic passed. There are many different options from which to choose and the staff doesn't hurry you at all. The drinks were outstanding and I will bet that the food is just as good.

“Consistent and great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

My husband and I live in town and go to Tia's at least three times a month. The food is very good and the service is usually fast, courteous and friendly. I usually always opt for the rare tuna entree but also love the dragon sizzler (also seafood) and the lobster flatbread.

Stopped for lunch on a day trip from Boston. Outstanding food and service, our server was Sherri. Also had the blueberry ale which was great.
