“Enjoy a drink while you wait for a table”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

This is a prime location to watch the ferries dock while sipping on a drink. Half the porch is set up with dining tables and the other half accommodates wicker couches and chairs that beckon you to sit and enjoy a drink before dinner. The food here is fresh and prepared well. The best part here is the service and view. All the wait staff are happy and they serve you with a smile. The cosmo martini was excellent!

“Good View, don't go for the Food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

Great place to sit. Server was very pleasant but totally clueless. Server Tried to open a screw top bottle of wine with a corkscrew. Salad bar was best part. We got up to get our salad bar, came back to the table and dinners were brought before we even sat down with our salads. Food was poor and not inexpensive. Fried Calamari was mush served in a pool of grease. go for a beer or maybe a burger and skip the rest.

“Decent food with a noce harbor view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

We had dinner here on 8/19/12. Steamed Lobster and fish and Chips.
The lobster platter was very nice and the fish fillet on the fish and chips was a very nice size. This is a casual place to enjoy your food and a nice beverage while you watch the ferry and people traffic of Block Island's main drag

“High Quality Service, Exceptional Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

This may have been one of the more enjoyable dining experiences of our lives. My husband and I sat down for a relaxing dinner and that is exactly what we got. Our server was actually the same girl that checked us into our hotel that morning and she knew so much about the Island, the Hotel, and the Menu. She suggested some of her favorite things on the menu and we tried her suggestions. The Chef had created a dish she our server raved about called Seafood Pot Pie. It may have been one of the best things I have ever tasted. My Husband ordered the Louie Saute which was another dish created by the chef. It was also delicious.

Our server was busy but took the time to talk to us and help us answer our questions. She helped us really maximize our vacation on the island by suggesting places to visit and things to do. We really appreciate a server that is willing to do their best to help out their guests. We will be coming back here again.
