“Just ok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Pretty much what you expect when you go to a resort Island. Standard menu, high prices, and staff that knows they won't ever see you again. I would go again but there are a lot of other places on the Island I would try first.

“Labor Day W/E”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

The Good: Went on Labor Day weekend and were seated for lunch immediately outside. Very nice laid back beach type atmosphere.
The portobello mushroom sandwich was phenomenal. Crunchy caramelized onions, spinach, balsamic-Excellent.

The Bad: The outside tables were not cleaned very well and were sticky from previous diners.

The Ugly: The service people (one waitress in particular) were miserable, not very attentive and seemed to be ready to leave as soon as possible. For a location that relies on tourists, they appeared to really not care at all (this included the hostess).

“Overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

The menu is overpriced, vegetarian caprese wrap is a disappoinment at $9.99, service is a bit slow, the view of the beach is terrific but I feel like you could do better elsewhere on Block Island. Chicken wigs disappointed but asparagus appetizer was good.

“Nothing fancy... GREAT for families.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Very friendly service, beautiful views, food is OK, great atmosphere for kids with a beachy feel. Definitely dine outside. Prices/portions are very good for Block Island and the wait (if any) is usually quick.

“Mussels, mussels, mussels...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

I've never had such a wonderful dinner--the mussels & linguica over linguini was incredible! Beautiful sunset views and fabulous sangria...what more could you ask for :)
