Jaw-dropping views and fine dining in a setting of an era gone-by

We had the opportunity to enjoy dinner at the Atlantic Inn last Saturday while spending an extended weekend "on the Block". Table for 4 for indoor dining, which is a different menu than their outdoor dining (only special Tapas served outside). Our server James was very well versed in the menu, as... read more

Atlantic Inn has a beautiful lawn that overlooks the town and the water from the top of a hill. We just had drinks and watched the sunset, extremely good service from the cocktail waitresses and good bar service with appropriately fancy (and very expensive) drinks. I do not however recommend the bacon manhattan, at least not if you want to... More

We had lunch on the outside deck and the food was very good. The location was perfect and the service was friendly.

We had dinner here on our last night on block island. The food and service were excellent. After dinner, we finished our wine on the front porch taking in the view

We stopped here for Tapas, cocktails and the sunset on their front lawn. A great view of the ocean! We would recommend this spot for a relaxing evening.

Almost every year, I take my wife to the Atlantic Inn for her birthday celebration. In years past, we have had as many as 10 in attendance, but this year (2014), it was just my squeeze and yours truly. And again, like a fine watch, The Atlantic never skipped a beat from the moment we entered. Cocktails on the lawn,... More

What wonderful anticipation we had in advance of our arrival to celebrate my wife's birthday at the Atlantic Inn on Block Island! In fact, I booked the day before specifically asking that a special dessert with a birthday candle be arranged. In the end, no recognition was given at all and no birthday acknowledgment was provided. Arrival, Service and Departure... More

This was the best place. Friendly staff, wonderful low tech feel and the foods to die for. Great value. Will return (not soon enough) next year. We felt like part of the family by the time we left.

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.
