I've have had a few good wedding meals here, but not to miss is sunset overlooking the Old Harbor rocking on the porch with oysters and a drink.

It would be excusable when dining at this historic grand hotel perched high on the hill overlooking with great views day and night above the New Shoreham Village if the food was just passable. That is how it often is at scenic, tourist destinations. But this is a serious restaurant which would fit well in Manhattan or any other great... More

We stumbled to to the lawn after dropping off our rental bikes and we were not disappointed. The view was beautiful, the atmosphere was relaxed, and we were away of the town's hustle and bustle. The service was a little slow, but we didn't care, we needed to rest after a full day of biking. My two children and I... More

Second time coming here for a drink/appetizer before going somewhere else for dinner. We started with sitting on the lawn in lawn chairs and a small table. We are on a bad incline. Ordered some oysters and wine. Had to hold the wine to prevent it from tipping over. The oysters were plopped on our table without any forks or... More

A wonderful place to sit for pre-dinner cocktails. Sit on the veranda overlooking the town and the bay. Do NOT order the Heirloom Tomato Carpaccio - it was a big disappointment. However, the Artisan Cheese Plate was lovely.

We have eaten a few dozen times, great wait staff and good food. Good drinks and the porch is the best part! We love going here. I especially love having breakfast on the porch.

To match the panoramic sweeping view of the sea from here, one needs only to visit another of the island's grand small hotels a short stroll away, but nowhere else in New England. The decor is magnificent, ambience incredible and food delicious. It is truly a magical place, day or night.

Loved it. This is the best hotel and restaurant in Block Island. Rooms are great, service is impeccable and the food stunning. The best part is not having to go to the Spring house which has turned into a bar.
