our story

We are a family, so beleive us, there are plenty of stories to tell.
Delivering great food and smiles to your table, since 2002.

Family Ties Restaurant was established in 2002 at a former location along Main road in Tiverton. Situated in front of the historic Grand-Central Market, Family Ties Restaurant started out with mostly real family members working the dining room and kitchen. Dave Ferreira, the owner, spent every day at the restaurant, a tradition he still keeps.

Since that time we have moved to a much larger facility to suit the demands of our growing customer base. We really have formed a family over the years here at "Ties" and we appreciate each and every one of its members.

Our goal is to deliver a quality meal for an affordable price. We have many daily and weekly specials so be sure to browse the site for upcoming menu items or events.

  • We are known for our friendly waitstaff and old school quality service that can be hard to find these days.

  • Our facility features both a family bar-lounge, and an accessible dining environment with tables and booths for all size parties.

  • We always use the best quality ingredients to ensure that you get the best tasting meal possible.

  • The people cooking your food are family, so you can rest assured they will deliver you a fresh hot quality meal on time, every time.
