Dropped in for brunch at Big Tide. We enjoy sitting in the corner and noted the much needed new chairs. We had good drink (Copper and White), good food and good service. The breakfast was great as was the veggie burger. Always seems a bit short staffed, but our waitress was good, if busy!

A brew with dinner always goes well! Cozy, kind of basement, right in the middle of town. Locals came in to play trivia which kind of took over ... but also gave it some character. Whistlepig stout ... that's a groundhog/marmot!

Chris, the owner who also tended the bar, was awesome! We tried a few different beers, Hemp, IPA and pumpkin, and they were all quite good. We went there before our dinner reservations and ended up going back after because we had such a great experience. This is definitely the place to go to sample pure Saint-John beer and to... More

Normally I'd have nothing but praise for Big Tide but last evening the service was terrible. Our waitress was pleasant but although we asked for water many times she kept forgetting it. Two of the six entrees came - sans cutlery and we all sat and watched the food get cold before our waitress returned a good 5 minutes. Finally... More

Stopped in for some drinks when out Saturday night. Really enjoyed it. Saint John has come a long way in its craft beer scene.

My husband & I went out to take part in""Chop Chop" dining tonight. We chose Big Tide because they offered frogs legs as an appetizer, crab stuffed peppers and banana foster bread pudding. Unfortunately they separated the frogs legs, AND, then deep fried them. So, when you bit into them, through the batter, you unsuspecting bit onto bone. The crab... More

Enjoyed our lunch here--the food and atmosphere were great and the beers delicious! If you want more information about the beer brewed here, or beer in general, the brewmaster is full of things to share about both.

I always make time to visit Big Tide with friends while visiting Saint John. The beer is amazing! Brewed on spot so there's always new selections to choose from. The food is also delicious! Perogies are a must try.

My husband and I decided on Big Tide for our date night and glad we did! We both had the sasuage with sauerkraut and perogies with bacon, which came with sour cream on the side and mustards (plain and honey mustard). First we enjoyed the soft pretzels. Perfect for sharing, it came with two good sized soft delicious pretzels that... More
