High Tides on the Potomac
Opening for the Season March 14, 2013
High Tides on the Potomac opened their doors on the
in Colonial Beach over seven years ago, on the site of the old Ambassador Hotel. About five years ago they opened the cool "Black Pearl" Tiki Bar next to the restaurant. It's been a great success, drawing crowds on weekends for live music and fun.
Bands used to have to play on a small corner of the restaurant's deck. The outdoor sand-floor concert area has a nice covered stage, overhead light strings, plenty of seating and a lot more room.
Beachfront dining on the patio, or inside the restaurant gives a great view of the
During cooler weather, there's a nice cozy fireplace to sit by inside the restaurant.
Also inside, you'll find a large bar area with many TV screens for your viewing pleasure.
In early 2013 an outdoor grill structure was added. Here's a picture of the building under construction.
I've tried many different dishes here, including the Commander Quesadillas and the Riverside Seafood dip from the Appetizers menu, the Sauteed Scallops from the Seafood menu, the Mushroom Swiss Burger and one of the salads. I've liked everything that I have ordered. Usually something from the appetizer menu is enough for me, as the portions are generous.
I've even been there on my birthday and gotten their cool dessert-in-a-shotglass treat. It's fun!
Some of my former co-workers and I took our Boss to dinner here for Boss' Day once and it was a great success.
During the holidays, they usually offer a Thanksgiving Buffet and at Christmastime there's "Dinner with Santa" complete with milk and cookies afterwards, and Mrs. Claus reading "Twas the Night Before Christmas" to the kids.
