This Maine gem is not one to be passed on! This little hole in the wall is located behind the local fisherman's co-op so don't over look it! The prices are cheaper then all the other seafood joints around and the view makes the already fresh and delicious food taste even better! You can sit back and watch the clam diggers dig up the steamers that will be served that night or watch the lobster men bring in their daily catch. You might have a wait at dinner time but get a beverage and enjoy the beach. The wait is worth it! We had dinner out on the deck and experienced on of the most beautiful sunsets my husband and I have ever seen! This little hidden treasure scores 5 stars for service, food, value, and atmosphere! Don't pass it up!
Great food, great prices, great views!! The atmosphere is nothing fancy, but this local gem earns all 5 stars for hospitality & amazing food!
Exceedingly fresh seafood in a quintessentially Maine type of place makes Rising Tide one of my favorite stops when I'm Down east (even though I go Northeast to get there). This place ain't pretty but it serves up some of the tastiest and freshest crustaceans and mollusks around. Don't forget loads of clarified butter, a few bibs and a mound of napkins. If there is a wait, and there usually is, grab a beverage inside and take a stroll on the dock.
This is a wonderful place. I can't imagine anyone not liking it! The views are amazing and the atmosphere is wonderful. It is hard to describe how relaxed I felt there as I had my steamers and lobster roll, both of which were delicious. The service was very good. Our waitress was friendly and attentive.
The Rising Tide restaurant is a slightly hidden treasure on the water with intensely fresh fish...right off the boat. This is no snooty on the water kinda place...the lemonade is served in a Mason jar and the dress code is shorts and a t-shirt. Prices are half what is just down the at the mega tourist spots. The actual restaurant is behind the retail fish store so don't think you are lost when you don't see it when pulling into the drive way.
Open every day 11:30AM-8PM
