“Tia's is known so well as a bar that the great food is often overlooked.”
“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.”
“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.”
“It is a great place for a nice dinner or to enjoy drinks with friends.”
“From the moment you walk in, the hostess greets you with a smile and the waiters are very attentive.”

Read what the Improper Bostonian had to say about us last year when we received their Boston's Best award.
"The waterfront view is certainly terrific, but that's not what draw's singles to Tia's, open April through October. Every year, Tia's makes good on their reputation as the best summer pickup scene in Boston. It's hot and crowded in all the right ways.(857) 400-7787" …
Great Atmosphere, Fabulous Service. 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!
Cool atmosphere. 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!!!
Great experience. I went to tia's the other night for dinner and drinks, the food was so amazing we sat out on the patio, and had a bunch of apps, that were so good. I recommend the spinach dip. The service was also really good, our server was jen, and she was just so pleasent. I would recommend this place to everyone i know
If you haven't been, it's a must! If you have, you're probably a regular!. 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.
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.
Cant wait for afternoons on Tia's patio. 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.
always a good time. 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.
Can I get my money back??.
We were only in Boston for a day & we were really looking to find a great meal while we were there. Boy was this the wrong place!
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.
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?
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.
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!
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!
Underated. 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.
Large outdoor patio entices after-work drones and searching singles with a magnificent waterfront view..
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; the trade-show contingent dissects lobster at clustered tables; and footsore tourists wrestle their Faneuil Hall shopping bags. Weekends, it's a rambunctious pickup den.
Tia's serves some basic seafood staples, but it's the view that brings the crowds. With more than 20 tables facing the harbor, it has one of Boston's best waterfront views, but snagging one of these tables on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday night can be a feat. But once you're down, cocktail waitresses keep you from having to get up each time you're empty. There's also an outdoor bar.
