I would not recommend The Tidewater Grille for a special occasion; such as my husband's 70th birthday party. I invited my entire family; even had quests fly in from Florida. Even though I reserved this table months ago and requested a table on the porch for the view of the water; we were put in the main restaurant pushed against a wall. The food was just okay, the mashed potatoes were cold and we couldn't eat them; possibly because we only had 1 waitress for 13 people. She was very pleasant and did her best considering every she had to do by herself. By no way did they help make the day special for my husband; couldn't even put a candle on his dessert? After reading reviews of the Liberatories restaurant in Bel Air and how people were made to feel so special and what wonderful service they received, I am so sorry we didn't go there.
