My family came here for dinner during our Vacation Week after the 4th of July. We had rented a house, but needed a night off from cooking at home. There were 8 of us, 5 adults and 3 kids.

We were spending a day in Block Island and we wanted to have a good lunch somewhere. I checked trip advisor reviews( very helpful) and we chose this place. The service and food was good, a little bit pricey. But overall great experience!

Yes the Food is as good as the view ... But I came for the Bloody Mary ... We also had a bunch of apps like calamari, mussels and the crab and shrimp spring rolls... All Excellant ... And again the view is fantastic by the water and a great people watching spot

The clam chowder was excellent! The steak and frites were also great. The steak was cooked perfectly! The lava cake was also very good! The service was great as well.

We flew into Block Island for a day and wanted to grab lunch overlooking the water. The Tap and Grille is on a huge porch overlooking the harbor . We had the delicious award winning clam chowder and a salad. Everything was fresh and tasty . The salads took a while and the manager came to apologize - offering us... More

The patio overlooks the harbor, and is high enough off the street that you don't have hoards of people walking by your table while you're trying to enjoy a nice meal. My husband had a fish sandwich, and loved the fact it was lightly breaded.

Very good chowder and burgers, etc but it's connected to the pub so very noisy. Drink menu was fine and service was satisfactory.

We come here every year for the great view and best steak on the island. Drinks are generous too. Hotel has added a nice fire pit in the rear with a bar. Nice when the nights get chilly.

Tap & Grille is located at the National Hotel which happened to be where we were staying for the weekend. We had breakfast both mornings on the porch. It was a great place to start your morning. Good food over looking the ocean. During the day we stopped at the outside bar. The location is tough to beat. Its a... More
