This restaurant is a great casual pub style place with great views of Nahant Beach. The bar has wrap around windows for a panoramic view. Tons of TVs for sports. We usually get the same thing, Chicken Ceasar salad pizza. It is the best.

A visit to the North Shore for us is not complete without a walk out to Nahant and a visit to Tides. Excellent fish & lobster, ice cold drinks and keno.

The location of this place is what makes it- absolutely stunning! The fact that it always seems to be busy is clearly a good sign however did mean we had to wait for a table, it was quite noisy and some food items weren't available....More

This once great restaurant from years ago has deteriorated. It was musty and dirty. The food was terrible. Nice view but uncomfortable booth and bad seating arrangements. I grew up living this restaurant and now would never go back!

Service is a little light. I really liked the raw Blue Point oysters, but the other selections were not so appealing. I got jumbo shrimp on a salad, but to go because the restaurant air conditioning was way too cold, and I'm from Alaska. 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.
