“A Decent Neighborhood Spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Was told to go for breakfast here and did so. Good enough food for reasonable prices. I think if one lived there, one would be more comfortable than as a tourist. But the people try and though the food is a little thin it is convenient.

“Super food, try it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We had two breakfasts and one dinner at High Tide and we found everything very good
The staff are helpful, the other customers are fun to watch and the food and drink was easy to enjoy
We recommend a visit, be warned, at the weekend, breakfast time is busy and you might need to line up, but it is worth the effort.

“It is what it is”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

This is just a simple diner with nothing really outstanding. I had the meatloaf, which was under-seasoned and more wet than just moist.

“You'll smell like the grill and the grease.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

I have been enough times seated in different locations and everytime I come out either after a very fast snakc or cup of coffee to sitting for a bit over breakfast< I SMELL like the grease and the grill.
Food is heavy and greasy or to buttery.
Not worth going.
Donnas in Eastie or a dozen other breakfast places are much better for your after smell and also for the health.
Go if you want to have your heart clog and smell bad for a day or so after

“The best grilled cheese by the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

The High Tide is a Winthrop institution - in another location, it would be a diner, and diners are wonderful. I have only had their grilled cheese sandwich, but on a cold wintry day, with the waves high and the wind blowing, it was the best grilled cheese sandwich I'd ever had. And the counter discussions are worthy of their own cable show!
