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

We really enjoyed our buffet breakfast and our happy hour on the terrace! The food was amazing and the view overlooking the water was so special. Just an amazing time overall.

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

Wonderful brunch every day with our room. Not just a continental breakfast many places offer - this was a breakfast buffet with made to order omelets, thick toast, cinnamon rolls, and a full lay out of meats, fish, fruit and yogurt, etc.

The setting is picture-book, the view glorious, and if setting is your priority, then you cannot do better for breakfast than 1661 (or "Iggi's" as those who know the story like to call it). But the buffet breakfast is seriously ordinary or less than ordinary, everything baked is made from a mix, and the selection is far ore limited than... More

Do not miss the opportunity to have the most extensive, delicious breakfast buffet on Block Island. Fresh fruit, smoked bluefish, eggs, corned beef hash, pancakes, bacon, bagels, muffins...I could go on forever. Omelets made to order and Mimosas! All this with a glorious scenic view. The buffet is complimentary for Inn/hotel guests but welcomes the public.
