The worse service in Boston! On a hot 4th of July weekend we went for an early dinner at Tia??s with the hopes to have a nice Seafood dinner. We opted to wait for inside seating for a cooler option and were asked to wait. Waiting for a table for two wasn??t a big deal until we realized that people that came after us are being seated. 15 minutes later we complain and are asked to sit at the bar while we wait, we politely refuse as we would like to sit at a table for dinner. The staff promised to get us a table for two as soon as they can. This is course leads to us getting a table next to a party of 8, at a broken table near the kitchen which holds 4, when a perfectly good table by the window with a view of the bay for two is being given to a couple who just walked in. Huh??? I immediately asked to be moved to something that wasn??t broken and was told no; that was all they could do. Excuse me, what about the three tables??s pushed together for a table of six? I asked for one of those and was refused, then was told I could wait for another free table if I didn??t like it. Almost 30 minutes later we still have yet to be seated and the manager on duty Chris was rude and refused to give us a table. We left after an exchange of words and will never be back to this restaurant.

Tia's isnt the best choice for seafood in Boston, but the location is great for happy hour in the summer. If you are looking for drinks with a view, this is a great place to start in the summer. Drink prices are expensive, but you are paying for the location. Get there early, as the line builds in the summer after 5pm.

Hated this place. Went there with the girls for a night out and the apps and drinks were too expensive for what you got. Not to mention we had wanted to be outside but it was like the front lawn of a frat house out there. Our waitress was unattentive and spacey. I wont be going back.

Tia's on the waterfront is a great place to dine on the water. They carry a wide variety of seafood choices, salads, sandwiches, and lobsters. Great patio!

Ate here for an early dinner one weekend in Boston. We had a great time, terrific chowder and lobster, nice wine, beautiful patio. I would highly recommend a meal at Tia's.

Tia's is a perfect summer bar. It is mostly outside and right on the water. A great place to go for cocktails after work or to stay all night. The drinks are a little more expensive that the other Fanuel Hall bars in the area, but the atmosphere is worth it.

I came to Boston on a business trip in the Fall. Out of all the places I tried Tias was the best for seafood. I went to Tias on a chilly Saturday and tried a twin lobster and chowder and it was delicious. I was still able to sit outside

We traveled to Boston this past weekend, and Tia's was our favorite place that we dined at. We came here for Mother's Day and were very impressed with the specials and the quality of food! Not to mention our service from the hostess to the management was top notch. I had the surf and turf and it was delicious, another member of my family got the Baked Stuffed and looked great. We got a chance to meet one of the managers and he was fantastic gave us advice on places to see in Boston, very nice guy and more than accommodating. I recommend Tia's to anyone looking for a great seafood with a nice view.

We went to Tia's last weekend for their opening and it was fantastic. The weather was great and the patio was packed. We tried some of their new appetizers and they were really. Our favorite still is the boneless buffalo wings! I am glad that they are reopened for the summer we always have a great time. Great food and great service and you can Tia's for anyone looking to get away from the college crowd and enjoy a beautiful outdoor patio with great drinks and food.

Our fist trip to Boston was June of 2011 and we'll be back this summer. Tia's is definitely on the list for repeat restaurants. Walk the Freedom Trail, end at the USS Constitution, take the ferry to Long Warf. Tia's is a very short walk off the ferry. Fantastic outdoor restaurant and bar. It was the perfect ending to our day walking the Freedom Trail. The setting at Tia's is relaxing and plenty of outdoor seating to enjoy the summer weather. The food and service is excellent.

I can't wait for Tia's to re-open in the Spring. This is one of my favorites in the Summer, best place for people watching! I had been coming here for years for their huge outside bar. Which is great for after work drinks and a great place or singles! A friend old me about Tia's great food and lobster specials... She was right they have the best lobster deals in town and a large variety of food on their menu. I would highly recommend Tia's for both dining and bar scene!!

I came here last weekend for my friends Bridal Shower and it was a great party. We were against poor weather, but the set up was gorgeuos! I will be reccomending Tia's to all my friends for parties and large groups.

It was cold so we were sitting outside under heaters, it was more than comfortable. The service and food was outstanding. Our waitresses were very attentive and all smiles! The bartender also made great bloody marys. All around it was a great party!

I am so glad that Tia's is open for the summer. You will find me on their patio all summer long. I have always meet friends hear after work because the have such a large patio, with great views. This is defiantly the place to be when the weather is nice.

Last week we came to Tia's a for dinner and it was awesome. I Usually just hang out at the bar, but I will be back for dinner for sure. I had heard they have the best baked stuffed lobster in town and that is true. It is the best ia have had and I have lived in New England my whole life.

In the past I have always recommended Tia's for their bar, I also want to recommend Tia's for lunch/dinner.. Try the baked stuffed lobster you'll love it!

I can't wait for Tia's to open for the season! After a long cold snowy winter I am looking forward to having dinner and drinks on their patio! Me and my friends always meet here for drinks after work. The place gets packed but it is worth it! Me and my boyfriend also come here for dinner and are never disapointed with the meal or service. I can see why Tia's has been so popular in Boston for such a long time!

I've lived in Boston for a few years now and this HAS to be the largest outdoor patio I've seen! And the food was awesome! Boston itself is expensive but the quality is great for what you're paying for. And their lobster menu? cant beat it...they go from a single 1 lb to a baked stuffed! Service and staff are friendly and outgoing and are pretty helpful with suggestions. the bar seems packed at night, but seems like a chill nightlife scene...will definitely be back and recommending

After a LONG, COLD winter there are only 8 weeks before we can get to the waterfront and enjoy Tia's again. Can't wait to sit outside and enjoy a cocktail while eating some great food. My taste buds are craving a baked stuffed lobster. Welcome Back Tia's for another season.

Every summer I look forward to going into the city and having dinner at Tia's. The food there is fantastic (extremely delicious I might add) and the service is great. From the moment you walk in, the hostess greets you with a smile and the waiters are very attentive. I've made sure that any friend or family member that comes to visit me, goes to Tia's and tries out their delicious food. So far, none of them have had anything bad to say about it except that I made a great choice in bringing them there. Definitely can't wait for this winter season to end so I can go back there!

every year at this time, i get thru the bitter cold winter with the thought that Tia's is only 3 months from re-opening......it's nice to have the option to sit outside or inside, get great service, enjoy the many options of food, and definate people watch.....the crowd is dressed nice and makes you want to mingle......i find it fun to be in a restaurant that is busy and has a great bar scene, so you get the best of both worlds.

For many years my friends and I have been going to the bar at Tia's, mostly because ""it's the place to be"". Come April ,what is better than a drink ouside by the water. A few years ago my friends and I decided to check out the restaurant. We always thought that it was a ""bar"". \r
\r
We had dinner outside on the dining room side, away from the busy bar. To our surprise, the meal was amazing. We started out with the incredible buffalo wings. They were the best we ever had. For dinner we had a seafood sizzler, twin lobster special and the salmon. The food was so delicious we were trying figure out when our next trip back would be. My friends and I were all in agreement that the restaurant at Tia's is a hidden gem. People always think of Tia's as one of the best bars in Boston............you have to try the dining room. You will not leave disappointed.\r

I can't wait for April for them to re-open!!!!!!

which speaks volumes to my experiences there. Boston is so rich with options, and I love the waterfront. However, as most of Boston can offer you places on the waterfront, there really is nothing special about Tia's that makes me want to come back.

I have tried the after work drink crowd, and where I can agree with the people watching, I find it weird that no one integrates with each other. People watching is one thing, but I like to mingle, and socialize. If I wanted to only people watch, I could go sit at a restaurant or watch reality television.

I have tried their menu for lunch - and the prices for New England food are just too much for only an average meal.

I believe Tia's gets a lot of hype for its location, but in all reality it is too far from most of the Boston nightlife that makes going out on the town worth it.

After dining at Tia's I couldn't wait to share my experience with the world, ok maybe just Boston. I recently had the pleasure of experiencing this amazing restaurant for the first time. I had always heard stories about Tia's and how fabulous the location is, and how it's a great after work place to go but never really appreciated all the stories I'd heard until I saw for myself. I visited Tia's late in July with my boyfirend, it was a great night so we sat outside. The hostess was great and freindly. Our server, Toby, was truely amazing. She recommended that we have the boneless buffalo wings to start, which I loved and so did my boyfriend! Then I had the baked stuffed lobster, no other can compare to this! And my boyfriend had the seafood sizzler which he also raved about. After dinner we walked over to the outdoor (bar area) patio, it was very busy and a fun place to spend our evening. We went into the City for a night on the town and got it all at one place...... Tia's! Now I know what I have been missing and the stories I heard were absolutely true. So if you're looking for a great atmosphere, waterfront view, great service, good music, and fun than I recommend Tia's!

I have been to Tia's about 4 times. The first time was 5 years ago when I was interning with WEEI and doing promotions. Since then I have been to Tia's a few more times and have enjoyed myself. Living and working outside of Boston, I am not in Boston as often as I would like as it is a beautiful city with a lot to offer. It seems like every time I go into Boston, whether it is for a girl?s night out, a play, or an afternoon shopping spree in the city, Tia's always ends up being part of my trip. I never anticipate it, but I always end up there enjoying a nice frozen drink with my friends to end my day before leaving the city. I just wanted to let you know that the atmosphere and welcoming staff make every trip I make to the city an enjoyable one!!! Keep up the good work!!!

I absolutely LOVE Tia's. It's great during the day and it has an amazing night life as well. The atmosphere is fantastic and it's an excellent place to meet people. Also, the staff is very friendly and the food there is great. The seafood is especially good because it's so fresh. I may even say it's Legal Seafood's competition! Definitely check it out if you haven't yet...

Tia's is known so well as a bar that the great food is often overlooked. We heard that it is a great scene on sunny afternoons, and that's why we went. We were having such a great time that we decided to stay for dinner and had some of the best seafood we've eaten anywhere.\r
This is REALLY a great place to hang out on the waterfront on a warm day or evening, and a great place for a casual lunch or dinner.

I cant wait for tia's to open back up. When Tia's opens up thats a sure sign that spring is here. I go there almost every thursday or friday afternoon for a few drinks and food. The place is usually busy when the weather is nice, its always a good crowd too. Try to get thier somewhat early on nicer days. If you're going to have food you have to try the calamari! Should only be another week or so before spring is here, aka Tia's opens up.

Everytime I go to Tia's I've had a good time. Whether it has been just for drinks after work or spending a friday night there, I've never had a bad experience. Sitting outside on the deck after work is the perfect way to relax after a long day. The food is good and the staff is friendly. One of my favorite bars in Boston.

1. The service was HORRIBLE!! Our waitress was not personable at all, we only saw her to put in the order, drop off our food and pay the bill - we weren't even offered drink refills. When we had a problem it took us quite a while to hunt her down, and she handled it very badly.\r
2. My daughter got a kids meal (she's 5), her burger was burnt and she wouldn't eat it. Any of you who have kids know that once the food is ranked as bad by a child there's no redeeming it. She didn't want anything else at this point & she certainly didn't want another burger. Our waitress seemed to care less that she was leaving the restaurant hungry AND they didn't take it off the bill - she took ONE bite!! Who does that?\r
3. OVERPRICED - I had lobster roll & clam chowder - while it was pretty good, the portion was TINY and it was very expensive for what I got.\r
4. DH had lobster (when in Boston, eat lobster). It was poorly prepared (chewy) and when it came out it was cold - when you're paying market price it had better be done right - how hard is it to boil a lobster!\r
\r
I worked in restaurants for a lot of years in the past and my minimum tip is usually 20-22% for average service- I tend to overtip a lot if the service is good - this is the first time I left 8% and regretted it later thinking that was too much for how bad the service was - she could have played a part in fixing our food issues but obviously she couldn't be bothered. How hard is it to get a child a new meal if hers is bad or to take care of a lobster dinner that was obviously cooked too long! $80 for lunch and 2 out of 3 of us left hungry!

Pros: Location was nice

Cons: Service was horrible, food was bad and overpriced

Even though every time I've been to Tia's it's been busy, I still feel like it's an underrated bar in the city. Right on the harbor, Tia's offers good food and a cool place to have a few drinks. It's one of my favorite bars to go to during the summer because you can stay outside the entire time with their outdoor bar. Nothing too flashy here, but has good beer selection.

This place is great. My wife and I had some company come to visit and we asked some friends where to take them and Tia's came highly reccomended. We went on a nice afternoon and sat outside on the patio. The food was great, and the service was exceptional. Our server was so nice and was constantly asking if we needed anything. Our company loved it and requested we go back there next time they are in town.

I've been to Tia's a bunch of times. Boston's young professionals wait for this place to open back up in the offseason. The patio is right on the water and always full of fun people. The after work crowd is very friendly because we all just got off our 9 - 5 job and need a drink to relax. The food is great, I've been to a couple events at Tia's that are catered. They always put out a good spread. The seafood here is great as well, nothing like eating seafood and being able to see the ocean.

This place is a clown show. I saw a bunch of roid freaks start a fight with some kids over a chair (luckily they ended up with the chair, although it was over the side of their head, good for them!) Otherwise, if you enjoy overpriced drinks and the suburban crowd that comes into Boston to get wasted and start fights with people, this is your place.

Pros: its close to the water

Cons: everything else

The food was so bad I couldn't bear to stay for drinks at the bar. The calamari was not only gross, but there was hardly enough for one person even if you did want to eat it. The waitress left no impression and the martinis stunk. The only thing worse than the ridiculous bill was the turkey club. Not only do they not tell you want is on it (warning there is a massive avacado right in the middle) but they put (no exaggeration) 20 times more mayo on it than there should have been. No one at our table left satisfied. I guess if you haven't had seafood you wouldn't know how poor the quality was, but please don't have this be your impression of Boston. Go for drinks, but avoid all food.

Pros: waterfront, outdoor, nice area

Cons: food, service

I was in town (yes, a tourist) and my friends in Boston highly touted Tia's for drinks and dinner. We had the worst service I have ever encountered at a restaurant. The restaurant was dead and we were her only table: I not only had to approach the bartender for water but also our drink order. The food was poorly prepared and cold when it arrived to our table. Just a terrible experience.

This is my favorite bar in the summer. The summer only lasts so long so I like to be outside as much as possible when the weather permits. This bar has great drinks, great views, and a great crowd (especially after work). Whenever someone new comes into town to visit this is the first place that comes to mind. This is what Boston is all about.

meathead stockbrokers flexing for the ladies while swilling Mich Ultra out of plastic cups served by bigger meathead bartenders who somehow couldn't get into the stock biz. Ugly environment!

Our experience at Tia's was quite pleasant, the food was excellent, quite possibly the best stuffed lobster I've ever had, and being from the Caribbean, I've had lots! We were seated promptly, and although service was just average, the ambiance was quite pleasant. I'm going back soon!

Went there for dinner last night.
1. Overpriced drinks (8$ for a beer)
2. Food stunk (The Calarmari app. was cold and not as advertised on the menu)
3. Seating (they tried to put 8 people at a 4top next to us, essentially forcing us to move so that we weren't being sat upon by the 4-too-many people next door)
4. Service (slow, lackluster, inattentive, only chatted with us when serving the bill [for tip purposes probably])
5. Atmosphere (crowded and overly trying to be trendy)

I recommend everyone avoid Tia's unless they go through a major revision.

I completely agree w/the rating on Tia's, have only been a couple of times & obviously it is best enjoyed in the summertime, when you can really appreciate the scenery, water & people ;-)

This place is for the just turned 21 crowd. Filled with cheesey girls and guys especially Wednesdays and Thursdays in the summer. The drinks are overpriced and the food isn't that great. Definitely not worth the expenses!!!!!

We started the night at Tia's. Had an awesome waitress named Amy. 12-14 people just hanging out having drinks for like 2 hours from like 10pm-12 on a beautiful august night outdoors --- can't beat that.

The Scene
Most nights at Tia's are calm, pretty and prime for people-watching. The after-work crowd drinks in both the waterfront view and a cocktail (or eight); young moms from suburbia check their watches over chardonnay; theā€¦
