“Our inn keeper's recommendation”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

We were staying at The Atlantic Birches Inn, Old Orchard Beach and found out about this restaurant through our inn keeper. We arrived at Rising Tide about 5:30pm and had a short 20 minute wait. Our server Adam was very friendly and even helped by taking a family photo shot of us at the table. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. We got the lobster and steamers special along with fried Maine shrimp and scallops. We shared bites of every thing all around the table. We had a very good time at Rising tide and the view of the sun setting over the area really made the whole event memorable.

“try someplace else”
Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

We ate there today and found the service to be unfriendly, bordering on rude. Our waitress brought us the wrong order and tried to insist we were the ones that were wrong. From that point on, we were basically ignored...our water had to be reordered twice. The food was not spectacular either. Try another restaurant in the area.

“Hidden charm”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We have been going to this small seafood restaurant for years. We try to make it outside each time at one of the five tables so we can eat and watch the harbor at the same time. Since it is adjacent to the lobster fisherman's shop, lobster is always on the menu in many forms..

“Worth the wait”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

This place is very small so keep that in mind. We had a party of nine and it took over an hour to get seated but waiting was half of the fun! We walked to the end of the pier and watch people that were fishing. The tide was changing and it was really amazing to see how fast the water level changes. We also walked along the beach next to the restaurant. Once we got inside the food was awesome, we loved the feel of being right off the pier. After dinner we went back to the pier and watched an amazing sunset. I would make this a part of your trip for a quiet relaxing dinner.
