We went to 1661 for a breakfast buffet. We were seated outside on a beautiful patio, which overlooked marshland and the water. A super view. The food was great and plentiful. Mimosas included. The staff was very attentive and helpful. Already planning on a return engagement.

My boyfriend and I went to Block Island for the 4th of July weekend, which was also his birthday weekend. We stayed at the 1661 inn in the Nicholas Ball Cottage Colfax room. It was classy and comfortable! Big shower, small bathroom, Jacuzzi tub on the upper level. I would have given a four star rating but the sound proofing... More

The all-you-can eat brunch at the 1661 Inn is not to be missed. While pricey ($20 per person; I think children are less), it really isn't that much more than a sit-down breakfast at many other restaurants on Block Island. We paid about $50 for a family of three. The star of the brunch is the giant bluefish they have... More

Fantastic spread, with ocean views. Relaxed and friendly. Very New England with baked beans and bluefish on the buffet.
