“Excellent Food & Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

I really enjoyed dining at Eli's! The food was very delicious and the service was great. The place is small; but the hospitality is gigantic! If you go to Block Island, then one of your dinners or maybe more should be at Eli's. My daughter lives on BI; and she thinks that Eli's is the best restaurant on the whole island. I have to agree.

“Gourmet all the way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

This is a must for all who travel to Block Island. It's an intimate restaurant with top quality cuisine. We had a party of ten and every meal was beautifully presented and amazingly delicious. We all loved it!

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Sat at the cozy bar and ate an amazing meal. Not a good bar scene because it's small and most are waiting for a table but really great bartender and very friendly people. Highly recommend it!

“REALLY?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Recommended by the hotel we were staying in. Nice place--nice ambiance and service was very good. The FOOD?? My wife had the salmon and she loves salmon. Sat on a bed of some type of creamed veggies? She said it was good but strange.
I had the tuna nachos. Interesting mix. The nachos were homemade and the sushi grade tuna, though very spicy was fresh and good.
The prices? Ridiculous--but I have to remember we are on Block Island--the Bermuda of the North!
Wouldn't rush back.
