Last summer I visited Block Island and brought my new son-in-law and his parents out to Block Island for a beautiful summer day. They had never been and want to come back again this year.

PPP is one of my favorite Block Island dining establishments! You can go after a long day of work and enjoy a few laughs with the bartender and some friends, or take your family visiting from out of town. There is something for everyone on the menu, and chef Ross' creations are always delicious! I would highly recommend PPP to... More

We come to the island with family and friends every Ground hog Day and always stop here for food and drinks. The food is great, something for all ages. The atmosphere is also great.

PPP offers something for everyone - my favorite is their amazing Veggie Burger... moist, flavorful and super generous. My carnivorous husband goes for the pulled pork or one of the juicy beef specials. A relaxed and friendly, down-to-earth atmosphere. Big tables accommodate big families or celebratory friends but you won't feel wierd eating at the bar solo; a few small... More
