This was the second year we ate at Tia's. We returned because of our good experience a year ago. The cuisine was truly New England; well prepared with great service. We will return again next year!

Went for lunch on Labor Day weekend. First time there, but would go back. Nice variety on the menu, including sushi rolls. Corn chowder soup was excellent and I heard the lobster roll was very good also. Cocktails were prepared well but the beer choices were a little less than I would have liked. But the best reason to go... More

Had my dog with me and was happy to find that the outdoor area was dog friendly AND that we arrived in time for happy hour! We sat by the fire pit which has an awesome view and only stayed for a "Topside Pink Lemonade" which was pretty delicious and some coconut shrimp. The shrimp wasn't anything to write home... More

We typically hit Tia's Topside for after shopping beverages. This year they had some Happy Hour specials. They were hastily explained and confusing as they were a mishmash of items from their regular menu so we ended up with some regular price items and some specials however we did not know until we got our bill. This could easily be... More

Hi Cheryl: I am wondering if you confused us with another restaurant. Our happy Hour specials are Oysters for $1.50, and 50% off all drinks except for wine. There have never been any other specials. best, Lori More

My Daughter picked Tia's early in the morning when she saw the big claws. The food was really good and well priced for the adults. The only improvement I would give is having a fixed price for the kids menu. I personally thought 3.50 for a juice was abnormal. I am also use to seeing one price for drinks dinner... More

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...

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."
