Traveling on 95S on way back to VA & stopped at Havre de Grace for lunch. Went to Tidewater grille overlooking the Susquehanna River from dining room & porch. Had Maryland Crab soup & crab cake sandwich ( without bun!). AWESOMELY DELICIOUS! Never had either with as much lumps of crab anywhere & nicely seasoned!! Was a treasure of a... More

It has been three years since we have been to this restaurant. The quality then was terrible. Charlie Lyons is now the general manager and the difference is staggering. We went to the Tidewater for a Sunday lunch. The service and food quality were absolutely perfect. This is such a great location, right on the water, that having the value... More

Thank you Tidewater Grille for always providing such a wonderful dining experience whether I'm there with sweet friends or my hubby, the 2 1/2 hour drive to the bay is worth it for such a relaxing, pampering and enjoyable time! I just love your warm and welcoming staff, the refined yet relaxed setting overlooking the water and your super yummy... More

Really like the whole idea of this place, great ambience and busy. Service a little slow but that's ok because it is understandable given how busy it is. My Chowder soup was not hot and my flat iron steak was dry and rather tasteless with lumps of cheese. No sauce or butter for baked potatoe. But I can recommend the... More

The location can't be beat, although the next door spot can be as good. Other reviewers have complained about how and where they seat, but it's just a laid back waterfront restaurant. The buffalo sauce is excellent, smoky and dark and a good chicken accompaniment. The MD crab soup was tasty. Our service was cheerful and as efficient as they... More

This restaurant has past it's prime! Many years ago it was a destination restaurant. Not so much now. It has more of a bar feeling. No ambiance what so ever. Rundown and outdated. It was cold and drafty, tables all crammed together and loud. The food was warm, not hot, and average tasting. Expensive. Service was friendly. This may be... More

As stated in several of the other reviews, their outdoor dining features fabulous views. On the several occasions we visited, the food was good, but not outstanding. There always seems to be a long wait for food, but the service seems quick once the food is prepared. It is a little pricey. The inside facilities are disappointing, the interior is... More

This is one of our favourite places to eat, mainly because the food is good and then we can walk along the boardwalk to walk it off! Because we like it so much, we usually end up with mussels followed by the shrimp salad wrap. This visit did not disappoint. The PEI mussels (about 2 dozen each), done in garlic... More

The food was good but service was a bit slow. The crab cake was my favorite. Food came out warm not hot. Still a good place in general. Outside dinning was nice
