Comfortable outdoor dining. We passed on the tapas and went for regular menu, which was a good choice. Solid food choices, well prepared, ok service, wonderful sunset views.

The Halibut and the Lobster dinners were FANTASTIC! I have never had such luscious seafood! And we did the Chef's tasting menu dinner on our first night...it was a wonderful way to sample many bites of choices on the menu. In addition, the tapas on the porch, daily, was excellent! The shrimp and the cheese plates were Superb!

After about a 20 year hiatus, I dined at the Atlantic Inn with 9 family members which resulted in a wide sampling of the menu selections. Most of the party chose the chef's sampling menu ($54) with up charges for lobster, etc. I had two very good plates - the Korean style short ribs appetizer and the deserts. The oysters... More

We just had another stellar meal at The Atlantic Inn. I went earlier in the season for the beer vs. wine tasting paired with dinner and was blown away by the creativity in food by their new Chef Brian. Each course incorporated either the wine or beer we were drinking with it, and the pairings were incredibly well-integrated and delicious.... More

Our meals were great, especially the Seared Scallops "BLT" and Caprese Redux Salad apps, the Grilled Filet Mignon (N'duja demi glace and accompaniments tasty and attractive), and Seared Local Halibut as our "mains", topped off by the Milk Chocolate Semifreddo (hot peanut sauce and Pretzel Tuile yummy toppers) and Vanilla Cheesecake. We hosted a 35th reunion for 21 on the... More

From the beautiful porch with sweeping views, to the graceful calm front dining room, The Atlantic is still the most romantic place to dine on the island. Each season is likely to bring a new chef and menu, so make sure you know the menu because there is much variation. As of now it is a very eclectic menu with... More

I wish we had discovered this location earlier. The Inn is on a quiet street and much calmer than the busier Spring House nearby. The views are incredible and we had a wonderful time sitting on the lawn with a couple of drinks watching the sunset. After the sun went down we went inside for dinner and loved the decorations...

26 years ago my wife and I were engaged on Block Island. Dinner at the Atlantic Inn was part of our day then, and we had dinner there again recently. The staff was friendly, the meal was terrific, and the desert was out of this world (I had the brûlée). Among the different options for places to eat on the... More
