This was our first visit to the Tides, on the occasion of the husband's birthday. Spectacular! Our food was delicious; the service was professional and friendly; and the setting was delightful: both inside the restaurant and on beautiful Gooserocks Beach out front. Three of us started with the evening's "Farm to Table" special salad: heirloom tomatoes in a lovely dressing.... More

We started with drinks outside and watched a beautiful sunset. Then we went inside and had a delicious meal. I had the corn and clam chowder to start. Then the tuna poke as a main course. My wife had the half chicken. Our friends had the salmon special that arrived overdone. They apologized, brought them a replacement. Then The Tides... More

The TBC is now part of the Harrington empire and as such has been redone in a bit of a high-end, hipster vibe. I can't comment on the rooms since I've never stayed but the restaurant is very good. The mixed drinks are excellent and the buffalo shrimp appetizer is too-notch, perhaps the best dish on the menu. Most of... More

Went there with my adult daughter and her date. Impossible to get a reservation so we went early enough to sit at the bar. We were lucky to get those seats since the place draws a good sized happy hour crowd. They have a very good bar inventory and a very good happy hour small dish selection. Oysters on half... More

Our family has been dining at the Tides Inn every summer vacation for 19 years! We do miss Marie (the previous owner) and it's old beach charm (including the resident ghost). The "group" renovations are beautiful especially the bar. The food is always great and the servers are excellent! Somehow our reservation for 8 was in their book as a... More

My family and I were here for dinner a year ago and I didn't care for my dinner entree much; however we came back and had lunch (twice!) and it was terrific. Salads were delicious, lobster rolls were great and they have this cocktail called El Diablo which is AWESOME! Good Rocks Beach is directly across the street so definitely... More

Probably one of the worst experiences I have had at a Retaurant. Young people working the tables did not have a clue. They sat us down at a table near the kitchen - but that wasn't the worst part. The table BOUNCED, bounced like a Tigger. My Chair felt like a roller coaster. Every time someone walked by me, towards... More

Dear Barkingmonkey: Given the disparaging spirit in which your review was written, I am feeling challenged in finding the appropriate response.

We were here in the middle of July. We met friends and had drinks in the front room. It took a long time to get the drinks after we ordered them, but we were in no rush so were not bothered by the delay. We sat together (8 of us) and shared some plates. The food was good, but not... More

Thanks for taking the time to review your experience here at Tides Beach Club. We take a lot of pride in our cocktail menu at TBC. Our team hand juices all ingredients and we infuse watermelon vodka daily for our infamous Watermelon Cosmo. In the busy season we never compromise and we are really proud of that! We are sorry...

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
