While the decor is very dated and the room temperature was on the cold side, we quickly forgot all of that as soon as we started to eat our meal of Lobster Roll. Not only was the lobster fresh and well prepared, the roll the meal was served on tasted fabulous. We couldn't see much of the bay due to... More

If only I could remember the name of our server! She, along with the wonderful food, were what made our dining experience her exceptional. My boyfriend and I dined at the Tides Restaurant twice over our two night stay in Alma. Initially we planned to dine at a different restaurant in town each night, but because our first night's experience... More

Stopped for lunch. Restaurant in a great location, but lacked a bit of ambiance. Food good, but not outstanding. Prices fair. Service good.

Enjoyed both a lunch and dinner with a great view of the Bay of Fundy. Friendly staff who made us feel special on our anniversary.

We ate dinner here after a long day exploring the beautiful Hopewell Rocks area. We did not have a dinner reservation but we welcomed inside and the service was excellent throughout the evening. We both had the fish pie which was excellent, tasty, and a hearty portion. While my husband said the fries were OK, I really enjoyed the baked... More

Arrived at 7:20p due to unanticipated long drive from Bar Harbor,ME. Asked if we had a reservation. No, we didn't, but restaurant was not at all crowded. Manager?/host says, "We're closed. The Boathouse is open." Not 'I'm sorry' or 'Please come back tomorrow .' Obviously doesn't care. We are enjoying friendly service and good food at Alma's Boathouse right now.

Coming from the prairies this type of seafood restaurant is most welcome! The food is excellent --- the lobster and shrimp cheese dip is superb! Lobster rolls have huge chunks of local lobster meat!

We stayed at the hotel and as a highlight I wanted to eat in the restaurant. They were very busy and under a boil water advisory. Usually a combination like that will guarantee a crappy meal and a grumpy waitress. NO SO at this place. Our waitress was right on her game. She had us seated and a glass of... More

OK food and service. Great location right on the water. One of the few places in town to eat, not a lot of choice.

We could not believe that with the town under a boil water advisory they charged for bottled water. Our motel is supplying all their guests. It's in our room and we were invited to get more from the office if we need it. To add insult to the chef, they charge extra for sour cream with a baked potato, free... More
