I agree with some of the other reviewers that this USED to be a nice place to go back in the day....I hadn't been in sooo long, tried it again yesterday, and it was horrible. The haddock sandwich was dry, the shrimp salad sandwich was tasteless, I asked for pickle, tomato and lettuce on the side, it came ON the... More

Really good seafood, pizza, onion rings. Everything we ordered was pretty good. If you ask for a table by the bar area you can have a nice view of the water too. Our server was great.

Very poor service. We came and they said it would be a 20 min wait. The wait ended up being over 45 mins. Then the waiter failed to take my order correctly and did not bring out the shrimp that I ordered. The food also came out very slow. Maybe it's because we came in the mid afternoon but the... More

We actually said "let's get coffee "and dessert, after the weak coffee and a chocolate mousse cake you could crack a tooth on , my experience last night ruined my memories as a child. I will...

The Tides is not far from our home so we had to try it for ourselves. The views are breathtaking! The food is mainly seafood, though they serve burgers and my husband raved about his steak sandwich. My husband has a seafood allergy, and be aware that anything fried in the restaurant is all fried in the same area (so... More

Great place for football in the bar. Lots of TV's. View of the ocean. Big menu. Plus the lottery and Keno if you are so inclined. There is also a restaurant side, but I've only been to the bar.

Saw some kite surfers and wanted to join them. This place is worth a trip if you are in Boston. The lobster roll was very fresh and with large pieces. Service 10/10.
