The Thanksgiving Dinner Buffet was a sumptuous affair... Every thing was laid out very well. There was plenty of food. The restaurant had a wonderful view of the bay. The food was plentiful, well prepared and delicious. From talking to total strangers, we know that many people came from good distances just for the dinner. It was worth it...

The breakfast is great but if you stay here for more then a few days the menu for all meals becomes boring. No daily specials.

Staying at the marina at Tides Inn and we ate dinner here. Had oysters appetizer which were awesome! The service was excellent. The view of the creek was amazing. Had blackened tuna which was very good. The cooked greens were great. Pricey meal but would definitely recommend and eat here again

Are here alone while husband was golfing-- was very comfortable. This is poolside at The Tides Inn. Has a relaxed cruise vibe. The crabcake didn't look like much but was delicious with very little filler, and fresh local tomato slices. Drank one mai tai which was quite strong!

The Tides Inn is closed for the winter so it is always of interest when they reopen for the season. Some years it takes a few weeks to hit their stride, this year they hit it off with a home run. We had dinner there the first weekend they opened, and everything was spot on. Our meals were perfect and... More

Food ok, table service marginal. We realized that in September the season was almost over, yet this is a class act resort. I would expect when the doors are open all would be good. Will give it another try next visit. Fortunately close by are other options.

We stayed at the Tides so we dined here for several meals. The evening that we had dinner was very nice. We enjoyed everything. We thought the brunch that we had on Sunday was lacking however.
