We had the opportunity to enjoy dinner at the Atlantic Inn last Saturday while spending an extended weekend "on the Block". Table for 4 for indoor dining, which is a different menu than their outdoor dining (only special Tapas served outside). Our server James was very well versed in the menu, as we had 1 Gluten-free diner among us, and he was quite helpful to answer everyone's questions regarding dining selections, wine selections, and even portion sizes as the Tapas are very tasty and should be portion-shareable. Everyone seemed quite pleased with their selections, and timing of each course was perfect.
Had I known better, we would have arrived earlier for sunset, as they have this jaw-dropping front lawn with seating to view the gloriousness of Block Island sunsets (not into the ocean, but on the horizon). There are water views however. For those of you reading this and intend on visiting during a season where you can be seated outdoors, call the Inn and inquire about making reservations for front lawn seating. You will truly feel like you've stepped back in time.
Bring your wallet, as it's a tad pricier than other places on the island, but worth a treat every now and again.
