Since it was too cold to venture out on the beach, i preferred enjoying the view from TIdes while sipping on some warm rum infused coffee & Nachos

Tides remains the best you can get on the island. It's simple and not upscale, but the food is solid as well as the service.

I enjoyed a juicy burger and a cold beverage. The view of the ocean is great, it feels like your in a far off place. A great place just outside of Boston.

You wouldn't drive to Nahant for the food here. The food is ok with lots of choices; location and view are the reasons for coming...as long as you get a booth by the window. Service is cordial; even though there are lots of 'locals', the...More

I don't think so, moves fast. They have an attendant in the parking lot for customers, no beach parking.

Not sure if they take reservations. I usually check in at the restaurant. FYI there are 3 wait lists.. Dining room, bar, and outside deck... I usually like the deck and go for a walk on the beach to kill time.
