This restaurant is slightly pricey, but it’s worth it. First, it sits on the Atlantic Ocean shore. The view is spectacular. We started with beet salad and New England clam chowder. The chowder was thick and, unlike so many clam chowders, actually tasted like clams. Then we ordered artichoke and goat cheese flat bread and a scallops entree. The scallops... More

We had a great table with a sweeping view of the ocean which was nice. The service from our waitress was not great but the manager stepped up and made it much better. The food is however way overpriced for what you got and it was not the best. I would recommend for drinks and the view.

We were looking for this Inn, specifically to enjoy the feeling of being back in the 1880's on Block Island. That's when this building was opened. The staff was very friendly and we found ourselves drawn to the outside bar on the veranda, which was practically the epitome of our extended weekend "on the Block". I ordered a specialty drink...

I travel by boat to Block Island every summer. The wife and I always make the Spring House our special night. Five years ago we celebrates my wife's birthday with the whole family, ten people, one of the Lobster diners was small and the claws were meatless. The restaurant manager refused to remove it from the bill. I have not... More

It's a tough act to follow after dining at Eli's. We waited too late to get into the formal dining room and had to settle for the gloomy, utterly pedestrian bistro next door. The room is dark and the feng shui all wrong. Never again. The food was average at best. Pricey, too. The same price as Eli's. The service... More

The ambiance and service were great. Nothing beats the views from the Spring House. We ate in the dining room, though i liked the decor of the Tap room better. Wanted the dining room menu, though. The food overall was good, except for my entree. Someone needs to remind the chef that there is supposed to be saffron in paella.... More

After some gorgeous meals at the Atlantic Inn and Eli's and lunch at Dead Eye Dicks this came as a big let down. The view over the ocean from the side porch, where we dined was very appealing. We ordered some cocktails - they were very watery and came in plastic cups. A far cry form the Atlantic Inn and... More

This our second summer at Spring House. The setting is lovely. The room was pretty and spacious. A very relaxing place to be. It's out of town so it's quiet but only a half mile to the center of town. The prices are fair. I recommend it for a relaxing beach vacation.
