I arranged with Lori to hold a family reunion dinner here. Lori was very pleasant and helpful in making the arrangements. She typed out a special menu to personalize our dinner.

We stopped in for a late lunch as they do not open till 3pm. We did not have a reservation so we had to eat on the front porch area which had a great breeze. The food was very good as was the service.

My 73 year-old mother had never eaten lobster before. No worries! Anya, our waitress sat down with a pair of gloves and proceeded to teach my mother (and refresh my memory)! Anya even mixed up her own favorite spicy butter for us. The lobster was smallish (Anya told us she would usually eat two this size), but enough for us.... More

You can not beat the Happy Hour here for drink and food selection and prices. They have cheap oysters too. The view from the patio and roof decks is excellent for people watching!

We had a great dinner at Tia's. Kids shared the lobster mac and cheese and it was plenty--they loved it! We all enjoyed oysters too. Great menu and breezy view from the porch.

They took our reservation for 6 at 6 pm with only a 30 minute notice. We were greeted with a smile by all! Our waiter (Evan ) was spot on accommodating. Food was hot and delicious and did not break the bank. Highly recommend the Mediterranean vegetable medley on kabobs!

Great view of downtown Kennebunkport from the top deck. 2 hour happy hour with half price drinks and beer (not wine). Drinks were ok. Servers were quick and friendly.

Everything was fantastic! Best service and atmosphere! Ahi Tuna and Fish & Chips were delicious! We will definitely visit Tia's on our next visit to Kennebunk!

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."
