“A Block Island Tradition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

We had a great time hanging out on the lawn at Spring House and sipping cocktails. It's almost a requirement of any trip to BI to go at least once. Our kids loved rolling down the giant hill, so everyone was happy. We had dinner here one night. The place is very expensive, but all of the food was excellent and the service was good. It was a nice treat for a night out.

“Spring House Gets a Bad Rap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

I have to say the place is spectacular! The outside atmosphere and inside bar is full of excitement, fun and energy. Food and service was great. Now the negative. The dining room is beautiful and the terrace dining is most spectacular as well, but there is a major problem here I believe. The menu is very, very expensive. Combine this with young families with young children dining with you. Yes, I have kids, but it's difficult to create a romantic, sophisticated atmosphere with the little ones. We sat at a table looking outside at dusk and there were mainly families with small children and it became a little chilly. The bus boys were running back and forth pushing the heaters from table to table which prevented them from servicing the tables. We waited a good thirty minutes before our table was cleared. The server was most apologetic and the bus boy was not quite getting the etiquette required for a the so called dining experience one expected with the high price tag. I would go back, but not for the dining room.

“Outstanding Service, Food, and View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

The Spring House overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and a rolling terrace of lawn that makes dining on the porch a visual feast. Our server was very personable, gave good advice on the menu items, and promptly refilled water and drink orders. The food was excellent, served hot, and ample portions. We took leftovers home. 24 years after our first meal here, following our wedding, we still recommend the Spring House for a delightful dinner.

“Birthday disaster!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012 via mobile

My wife had made reservations mid week for Saturday the 18th(my birthday) at the Spring House. We had a glass of wine at the Atlantic Inn(excellent) and then went over to the Spring House. I noticed a very festive atmosphere going on. Not paying much mind we went to host and inquired about our reservation. He chuckled at our request and said "not tonight we have a wedding". My wife could have messed it up (has never happened) but the lack of concern is what really bothered me. We have eaten here before and would only say positive things.. but this was not good and could have handled more professionally.
