Good Meal

My wife and I visited this restaurant on the beautiful Chesapeake so we decided to have the Chicken Chesapeake and the Tidewater Jambalaya. Both meals were tasty and the view was just great. Will go back again.

A wonderful waterfront restaurant in small-town USA. We enjoyed a lunch there with a small committee. The restaurant filled at noon, demonstrating it's a great place to be. It's not a small restaurant, with indoor seating by the bar, and "outdoor" seating on the enclosed/heated porch. The wait staff was excellent (Thank you, Sara), the food was prepared quickly, the...

I met a friend that I had not seen for several years at this restaurant for an extended lunch. Since I have food allergies I always review the menu first to ensure that there are suitable choices for me. I was pleased to see that this restaurant seems to go out of its way to accommodate those of us with... More

Landmark eatery with a terrific view. Decent food, go for the view not the food.... Pick a day that's not windy in warm weather. They take down the umbrellas which loses ambiance for the restaurant. Food is predictable.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here on a somewhat bleak winter day. The menu was full of appealing and interesting items - my son's chicken breast melt with real bacon and crabmeat spread on a tender pretzel roll was a standout as was the creamy crab soup. Our server, Melissa, offered the perfect blend of friendliness, professionalism, and attentiveness. We'll... More

On the way to a D.C. business trip, as hunger hit us in Maryland, we had no idea of where to stop along the way. We took a gamble and took the Havre De Grace exit presuming that we would certainly find something there and boy did we ever. We found a veritable gem on Franklin Street along the Susquehanna...

Tidewater is one of our favorites for special occasions. Nice size drinks, the best lobster around. Haven't had a bad meal yet, all of the entrees are excellent. Your choice of the dining room, porch or patio (in season) all come with a great view. We fell in love with the place during a light snow storm in January as... More

We got excellent reviews from the people we talked to about where to eat but we were disappointed with the food. The crab soup was mostly cabbage and very little crab. The french fries weren't very warm or crisp. The service was very good.

Brought some family in for a lunch in the river. Small crab bites were good all crab not filler! Pretty atmosphere on the sun porch over looking the mouth of the Susquehanna and the start of the Chesapeake bay! Enjoy!
