Description: 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."

“Enjoyed opening night”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

We visited Tia's last night on our way to another restaurant. We had planned to stop in for a drink. The waiter Brian was so fun and friendly we stayed for 2 drinks and an appetizer. Then not able to tear ourselves away after seeing some fabulous looking dinner plates go by, we stayed for dinner. Food and drinks were good, but we enjoyed the porch atmosphere and waitstaff the most. Since it was opening night- it was not crazy busy like it can be in the summer months.

“Great addition to Dock Square!”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

We loved Tia's. We found this gem on the first day of our honeymoon last summer (June 2013). They had 1/2 price drinks (except wine) all afternoon. We made it a daily stop. :) The service was impeccable. Honestly, my husband enjoyed the male staff just as much; the server we had was an avid fisher, and they talked alot of fishing during that time. It was a great place, with a killer Bloody Mary.

“Good dinner”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We decided to try it on a whim and were very pleased. We dined inside as it was chilly. The decor was very nice. The pub type menu was very good and my burger was very good. Best of all was the bread pudding for dessert. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. It was a very nice meal and I would recommend it highly.
