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 Rundown and outdated.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

Had lunch on a cold and cloudy day. Still, views overlooking the water were great. Service was fast and very friendly. Our waiter was very attentive. Cream of crab soup had plenty of crab, but cream was just a little too thick and lacked flavor. The sandwich with crab cake was very good. The homemade chips were a treat. My... More

One of our worst meals ever food and service-wise and certainly the worst oysters we've had anywhere (and we've had a lot of oysters including many excellent specimens just previously in DC). We should have guessed that any establishment that calls itself a "grille" is either pompous or trying too hard, but we stopped off at this waterside restaurant one... More

The Tidewater Grille has an attractive entrance and beautiful location overlooking the Susquehanna. The restaurant was packed at lunchtime a few days after Christmas and we were surprised that the 2 of us were seated right away while they had a party of 12 waiting and had just seated a party of 14.There are 2 main dining areas with water...

We stopped here for lunch on a chilly, winter day and wish we'd been able to enjoy the outdoor deck in better weather. Food was good and prices were reasonable.
