My first visit to the Tides restaurant was in 1956. The food and service has always been great! The design has changed over the years and while I liked the old world charm with the boats unloading, fish cleaning, etc. that they used to do at the pier, the current restaurant is a very nice place to take the family. My family recently had a reunion and we went there. We were very pleased with the food and service. We were not rushed and the waitress even offered to take pictures with several of our cameras. They made every effort to make our evening wonderful starting with insuring we had nice seats with a wonderful view. One member of our family has to ride a scooter and they went out of their way to insure he got around OK. The restaurant has large windows around most of the restaurant revealing a wonderful view with plenty of light. I no longer live in that part of the state, but vacation in the area often. I always arrange a meal there at least once during my trip.
So fresh you pick it yourself and it has not changed the great flavor in all these years. This restaurant/sea food mart/ tourist area gets it's seafood fresh from the docks behind it. Maybe not all as it used to when the crab boats ran full during every season but still the BEST clam chowder and Crab Louis around. I used to think Lou LaBonte's in Auburn was arival but since the've removed Crab Lous from the menu... Also can't beat the extra sour dough. Only the fresh crab Bear Bouchalocki used to cook in his front yard after docking at the Tides even beats it in my memory. I consider it a treasure that ages timelessly. BTW-- The Birds was filmed there too.!!!
The worst restaurant I have been to in a very long time. The food was below dog food quality and the Waiter was snooty. Do not waste your time here you are better off with a can of spam on the beach in the rain then wasting your time or money here.
it was the most terrible dining experience ever! i went with all my girlfriends and we were treated horribly i felt like everyone was staring at us because we were young and we probably couldn't afford to eat there, and the waitress was so rude to us she was trying to hurry us as we were trying to get situated we felt she didn't bother to ask my friend if she needed a baby seat.. honestly shes a young mother so people might see that as something bad but we were just trying to get some burgers.. she got mad and told the manager and they said that everyone at the table had to have a 9.50 minimum.. i was appalled we told the manager and he was even more rude.. so we left her a tip for the bread and left, even though we shouldn't even have tipped them, she told us she didn't even bother to put in our order anyway so we left.. so if you are a young mother or a young adult don't bother going to this snooty restaurant! go to diekmans grocery they have normal people food like pizza and sandwiches! for less than half the price of the tides, trust me you will feel so uncomfortable and people will treat you like crap..!
Per usual, we always start off with Calamari appetizers. Luckily for us they served warm sourdough bread, otherwise we would have eaten our napkins because the Calamari was awful. Pieces were slightly on the rubbery side but slightly sweet and the breading was just plain dull (flour and water). I ordered the special which was a seafood cioppino and my wife ordered the pertrale sole. The clams and mussels were plump and tasted very fresh but the crab didn't taste sweet nor fresh. On the other hand, I thought the soup had a lot of tomato, lemon, parsley tany sweetness. This dish went very well with the garlic bread that it came with. Mmmm...I could still taste the spicyness of the garlic and herbs on a crusty slice of sourdough. By the time I got around to tasting my wife's dish of Petrale Sole I was stuffed. From what I can remember, this dish was excellent in that the fish was very mild tasting and flaky (very fresh) with a light batter. The sauce that was poured over the fish was buttery with a lemony finish. Again, we always like to finish off our meals with coffee and dessert. If we have known better, we should of just skipped the chocalate truffle wedge and the coffee was gas station quality.
