History

Traditional Cape Cod Cuisine since 1959 at Ebb Tide RestaurantFor many years a small Cape Cod sea captain’s cottage existed on the shores of Nantucket Sound. In 1959, the McCormick family transformed that cottage into a small but wonderful restaurant and named it The Ebb Tide.

As the Cape grew, so did The Ebb Tide. The Topside Lounge was added in 1975, along with it came a quaint outdoor terrace. That terrace was enclosed in 1984 and renamed The Garden Room.

The McCormick family has carefully maintained the charm of the original antique cottage even as the restaurant has grown over more than five decades.  From the foyer, in which you were greeted, the original cottage can still be seen, though now surrounded by the ever improved additions still taking place.

Like the restaurant itself, The Ebb Tide menu has grown from its rather humble beginnings to such classic New England cuisine as fish caught locally and served fresh daily to prime cuts of beef.

Every change, every improvement, both in the building and in the menu, originates within the extended McCormick family. There is always a McCormick actively involved and on the scene, assuring their guests of their high standards in comfort and culinary pleasures.
