This restaurant has a very nice atmosphere, and overlooks the beach. It is good food but nothing special. Typical menu, and big portions. Good for family's and if you need a casual place to eat.

Labor Day Weekend, perfect weather, sitting next to the beach...plus, the waitress was really nice, fast, and most importantly, patient with our hungry/tired kids. And the food was great, the chowder was outstanding and the calamari was good, nice and crispy.

This a top lunch spot for us when staying in Block Island. Good chowder and tasty sandwiches and salads. The service is decent as well. You can often watch surfers and surf lessons across the street at "Kid Beach". Very relaxing spot.

I liked the atmosphere a lot but the food was so so. It might have been because we were a late dinner seating but I would have loved a little more. The stuffed clams dos rock.

The restaurant is right across from the beach. We were looking for a cool place to eat and air conditioning is hard to find on Block. We asked to sit in a cool spot as we were all overheated from shopping and they put us...More
