We did not eat here, so can't comment on the food. The restaurant opens at 11:30am. We walked in at 11:25, and approached a table to grab a menu (we have 3 kids and wanted to make sure it had simpler/less spicy options). A woman came out and said "What are you doing here!!??" I apologized and explained that I just wanted to peek at the menu. She replied "We are NOT open! You can go outside and see the menu up on the bulletin board." We left, went across the street to beachhead (that opened at 11:30, but already had a handful of customers). They greeted us properly: smiled and lead us to a table (even though it was 2 min before opening. Although there aren't a ton of dining options on BI, I won't be going back to Mexican on the Deck. It's actually my first time I received bad customer service on the island.

“Great lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

Great lunch for a reasonable price, even the drinks were moderately priced considering it is on a tourist island. We thought we would end up spending much more for lunch on Block Island!
