The Atlantic Inn is the best place to be for a Block Island sunset! The appetizers are yummy and cocktails delish. There's something for everyone. Kids are welcome too! Ask to set up croquet! The kids will thank you! Sit in your adirondack chair, relax, watch the view and everyone will have a good time!

This is by far the best food we had on Block Island. Everything is finely prepared. The wine list is excellent and fairly priced. The service was excellent. The only negative is that the choices are limited. We tryptophan eat there often when we visit Block Island.

Had a lovely dinner here. James was an excellent server and was friendly as well. Dinner was quite good, but extremely expensive. It is a good place to watch the sunset.

We met friends for dinner at the Atlantic Inn and do not regret our selection. We all ordered different entrees and we all enjoyed our meal. The food was beautifully prepared, beautifully presented and delicious. The service was excellent. The views are lovely and overall this was a positive experience.

We had a cocktail on the veranda overlooking a rolling vista with the ocean in the distance, and then sat down to a delicious dinner. I had scallops to start, which were light and cooked to perfection, followed by a colorful carrot salad (purple carrots!), and then fluke for an entree. I had no complaints and would definitely go back.

We planned our aniversary dinner there and were surprised to find the food to be below average but the price was high. We spoke to the inkeeper/owner about the problem, and he was condesending and almost hostile. It was in fact a memorable experience but not what we had hoped for. We will never return and suggest you do the... More

Watching the sunset and drinking cocktails on the west facing lawn of the Atlantic is a Block Island classic. Adirondack chairs and cozy blanket are provided by the Inn.

For the most part, food and service were very good, although a bit pricey and portions on the "small" side. However, what stood out the most (and will forever define this establishment for us) was the miniscule portion of the Fried Block Island Oyster appetizer. Literally, the entire oyster part of this dish was about the size of a quarter.... More

My wife and I choose the Inn for dinner on our last night on the Island with our adult children and their significant others. We also celebrated a special anniversary. Never again........... It all stared when I went to make a reservation. I was told that if we cancelled within 2 hours of our reservation we would be charged half... More

Perfect way to end the day, sitting on the porch drinking a beer. The food was good, not great. We had the lobster rolls, calamari, scallops and a salad.
