This is our second time to this restaurant. We all had a good meal. We wanted fried clams and they didn't have any. A little disappointed. I had the fish tacos and they where very good. The lobster roll was good not a lot of lobster but very good. There pink lemonade cocktail is excellent. Service was outstanding...

Recently had a meal at the bar and although it was empty inside we felt underserved. The bar tender couldn't be bothered with us and forgot to put one of our orders in so we waited and one meal got cold by the time it came out. Seating outside looked nice but it was full. I would recommend getting a... More

We had dinner the other night. I had the stuffed shrimp and my wife the filet. Both were good. The filet was served with a mushroom sauce, mashed and Asparagus. Mine was served with a roasted veg-medley. The carrots were under cooked. That really was my only complaint. The outside dining all high tops which we don't like so we... More

On our last trip to the Kennebunks we saw this place on the main drag, but didn't have a chance to stop by. Their happy hour is 3-5pm. Half off martinis caught our attention this trip. Well worth the stop. The calamari was excellent as was the welcoming staff.

We visited this very unique location twice and though we had to wait for a dinner table, we enjoyed sitting outside around the fire pit while watching the activity in Kennebunkport. Seating for appetizers (small plates) was in the upper level patio with a great view! Drinks, Chowder, Calamari and Coconut Shrimp- YUMMY! For dinner, we ventured inside and ordered... More

Went to the top of the restaurant for happy hour and food. Between 3-5 is happy hour. They had lobster for $13.95, but I changed my mind for baked shrimp with rice and veggies, my husband had the red dragon sizzler on a stick with shrimp, scallops, swordfish, veggies and a cube of corn on the cob. Food was delicious,... More

We had 2 families vacationing in Maine for a few days over the weekend. We decided to go out for the evening and headed downtown. We had a reservation for 6:30 at Tia's. We sat out front first and enjoyed a drink on there front patio. We sat up on the 2nd floor inside for dinner. The service was a... More

We had a party of 9 with reservations. We ordered several appetizers then our meals. Apps came out speedily but the meals painfully slow - at least 35 - 40 minutes wait. Salads were mostly lettuce. Lobster mac & cheese was greasy. The $20 lobster roll was stone cold and over spiced. Seared scallops were way over spiced - too... More

We enjoyed this upscale but relaxed casual restaurant for dinner our last night visiting Kennebunkport / Kennebunk. Parked behind Alisson's (also a great place to eat!) for $3 per hour- across the bridge in Kennebunkport 0.2 miles away. (Parking otherwise very tricky!). Our food at Tia's Topside was very good and cooked to order. Burgers & fries. The menu had... More

THE place to go when you are thinking of dining at a waterfront restaurant in Kennebunk, Maine. Our customers sing our praises better and more effectively that we could. Read our Tripadvisor 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."
