We walked to the restaurant and had a great meal of lobster rolls, fish & chips, burgers, crab tacos and ahi tuna. Great cocktail selection and wines that are reasonably priced. Very good, efficient and prompt service. The only reason the entire experience wasn't "excellent" is that we were unfortunately seated close to the bar at the back of the... More

We enjoyed two excellent dinners at The Tides. The atmosphere is relaxed, the service and food very good, the wine list allowed us to discover a couple of very good, well-priced white wines. The food is a fabulous combination of local and Asian inspired, with top quality locally-sourced ingredients. I would absolutely recommend this spot, and make your reservations before... More

Our crew tried all of the restaurants in Kennebunkport over the past few years - and can say that our best dinners have been at the Tides! The seating areas are not large and gets noisy, but the food cant be beat.

All their lobster dishes were great - the lobster roll, or even the caesar salad with lobster on top. Their tuna was a bit overcooked but overall was a great dining experience (we went twice) and a lovely option by the sea

Lovely setting as we watched the moon rise. Food was full of flavor and martinis were huge! Chocolate Martini was a great way to end the evening.

We had lunch here twice while we were staying at Hidden Pond. It's in a great location, across the street from the beach. Our goal during our trip to Maine was to eat lobster everyday. We had lobster rolls in four different restaurants and the hot lobster roll at Tides was absolutely the BEST!

We ate at this restaurant yesterday. I swear my lobster had been pulled from the ocean that day. It was sweet and easy to eat (lazy-man's lobster). The watermelon martini was also a hit. My daughter enjoyed the shrimp cocktail and the turkey club my husband had included real turkey meat- not luncheon meat. Very fresh food, great wait staff... More

We frequent the sister restaurant, Earth, in Kennebunkport but had not been to the Tides until a Saturday evening. Made a reservation for a window seat via OpenTable and sure enough when we arrived we were sat in the patio area.
