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.

We have been here at least 5 times and each time they have a pretty inventive menu, including desserts, that are very well executed. The Atlantic Inn has gone heavily towards a prix fixe menu that includes 2 appetizers which means there is not much room for cocktails and appetizers on the front yard with absolutely amazing views. We would... More

We started with a cocktail outside. ( If nothing else, you must visit for tapas and the sunset one evening. Outside is very family friendly. Your kids can literally roll down the hill whole you sip your martini.) The Inn has one of the best views on the Island. We then enjoyed the price fixe menu, with 2 apps, an... More

Wow! We enjoyed the Price Fixe menu which included 2 appetizers, an entree and a dessert for $52. Every single dish was amazing. The chef also sent out an additional starter for us to try. Scallops were cooked perfectly as was the rack of lamb. The creme brulee was unbelievably good. Tip: go early, have a cocktail on the lawn.... More
