    5 Star Service

    My husband and I had our ceremony and reception at The Tidewater Inn on 11/16/18. From the very beginning Melanie answered all of our questions and made us feel at ease. Our wedding went smooth and exceeded our expectations! We are still hearing reviews from our guest about the food- they loved the mini crab balls, filet, and lamb lollipops best! Our wedding was the best ever and it was thanks to Melanie and her team at The Tidewater!
