I really enjoyed Bethany's Diner. Went there for breakfast straight upon arrival for a Thanksgiving stay. Very nice servers. Menu is traditional diner fare and was damn tasty. Good coffee. Nice conversation and very welcoming. Went back again before leaving the island.

I was on the Block in July 2015 and tried Bethany's twice while I was there. Once I went in on July 22, 2015 while waiting for a friend's plane to land. I wanted to order breakfast sandwiches to go for my friends coming in. I tried for 10 minutes to get someone's attention at the counter inside and finally... More

Delicious. Every time. The airport diner is a must-go place on the island. Sitting outside and watching the planes take off and land is something we love to do every visit.

The New England island small airport setting brought back memories of our favorite TV series Wings. We enjoyed a mid-morning Sunday breakfast. The dining area is small with varied seating (counter & individual tables). There is additional patio seating. Our meals were a daily special and from the menu. Both delicious ample servings. The aviation decor enhanced the overall experience.... More

Enjoyed a satisfying breakfast here while watching the planes come and go on Block Island. Nothing unusual, just good food in a relaxed atmosphere.

Located in the terminal building at BI airport, you wil find this tiny gem of a diner. Prompt and courteous service by local staff (a rarity during the summer) preceded delivery of a large, hot breakfast that my wife could not finish. Come early as seating inside is very limited. Outside seating adjacent to the tarmac is available too. We... More

One of my favorite destinations for the infamour $100 breakfast is the Bethany Diner on Block Island. Besides the fine food, the service is always pleasant and attentive. I guess my only complaint would be that I wish it were larger and could accomodate more people, since it is so popular.

Crazy busy during the summer but worth the wait for the awesome breakfast. Arrive with lots of patience although very entertaining to wait adjacent to the airport runway. Food is fabulous from the omelettes, to the huge breakfast burrito. Grilled homemade corn bread is a staple and always some great specials on the board.
