Reviewed July 23, 2011

The specialty drinks are fun, but $15 - in Maine. The food is good - but pricey and very small portions. The service is friendly and accommodating. Want to LOVE this place because of the beautiful staff and lovely decor right by the beach, but it misses the mark for wonderful food and value.

“Absolutely amazing way to finish another beautiful Maine day!”
Reviewed July 20, 2011

I have to admit I was skeptical making a reservation for 12 people in the first week or two of the Tides opening (typically some bugs need to be worked out) BUT I am happy to report that they had everything absolutely dialed in.; from timely service, amazing food and being able to accomodate such a large group over the fourth of July weekend. They had a great vision with the Tides and am excited to get back there for another round of their outstanding cocktails!!

Always on the lookout for good restaurants in the area (there are so many bad ones) ; we were pleased with our meal here. The restaurant - actually just a part of the lobby with a small porch area - was attractive enough. Not sure I would call it South Beach - it was beachy and more modern than the usual local restaurants. The service - despite the servers being mostly college kids on break - was great, and far superior to other local restaurants. We all enjoyed the food, and while it was on the expensive side, it was in line with similar area restaurants. We especially appreciated that you could order off the bar menu in the restaurant and have a less espensive meal. Despite the address the restaurant is a 10 minute drive from Kennebunkport -but don't let that disuade you, it is on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world (limited views from the restaurant). We will be back.

“Hip, fun and delicious”
Reviewed June 15, 2011

Words can't describe the beautiful renovation at the Tides Beach Club - light, comfortable and chic....And even though they had just opened, I dined with a friend and my sister and the food was five star! I had a cod dish and my dining companions each got the lobster...My only complaint is that their Lobster Fried Rice I had heard about wasn't on the menu that night. The bar is breathtaking and you can't beat the view. I would highly recommend this restaurant to any one visiting Kennebunkport...as it is one of a kind.
