Description: The Main Dining Room consists of our grand indoor dining room, as well as our ocean view patio, and provides patrons with exquisite fine dining. When available, the Spring House Hotel kitchen strives to use vegetables from our very own gardens, Many of our dish’s are created solely to utilize what we grow in our own backyard. We believe that self sustainability with organically grown herbs and vegetables is the healthiest way to cook. We strive to source all produce organically and or hormone and pesticide free if available, collaborating with Farm Fresh Rhode Island, we are able to source local farmers and purveyors throughout New England.

“Only if you are a large group”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

We used to stay at the spring house and were always treated as if we were doing them a favor. One year the staff could not find us a working fan in the middle of a heat wave. The next year we were told that we could not eat breakfast outside on their lovely patio because it was reserved for a large family reunion even though they were only using 1/2 of the patio - fortunately we wandered down to the 1661 Inn and had a lovely breakfast - that is where we now stay when we take our yearly trip to Block.

“Great dinning on the veranda”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

We had a wonderful lunch on the Spring House veranda. The service was excellent. The freshly caught tuna melt was outstanding. The salad was made with greens from the garden. The view over the bluff was beautiful. The pizza was all excellent. The grandkids were catered to. The picture the waiter took of all of us came out great. We look forward to eating there again.

“Very. good food . Priceless Views”
Reviewed July 10, 2012 via mobile

On Block Island with friends and dined at The Spring House last night. All our meals were world. class if a bit pricey. I had fresh local Striped Bass while my pals had The Swordfish special. Both were cooked to perfection . We dined outside on one of their porches , high on a bluff overlooking the ocean. Do not miss it.

“Forget Quiet and Romantic”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

Having enjoyed a very nice dinner during our visit in July 2011, my wife and I were stunned during our return visit on July 7, 2012. While the quality of the food still seemed to be acceptable, the experience was definitely not worth the price when the service and atmosphere were considered. It appears that the restaurant is understaffed since it was almost impossible to get the attention of our waiter anytime during the meal. At least 8 unsupervised children ran and shouted freely past our table until we begged the staff to close off a door. An intoxicated group of guests at an adjacent table shouted obscenities as their primary means of communication without any intervention by the staff. When we explained our disappointment to the staff upon leaving, they dismissed it as just some of the downside to hosting a corporate group for the weekend. The inn is apparently now catering to such large corporate groups and weddings. So don’t let the hefty price tag fool you into thinking you can find an elegant, romantic meal at the Spring House any longer. Forget about a restful place to stay! We were able to hear the loud, partying crowd at Spring House until 2am all the way from our room at the adjacent Rose Farm Inn which is over 300 yards away!

“A must to complete your BI stay”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

6 couples on the outdoor patio for the 4th of July...terrific food and wine! Chris, our waiter, was very patient and service orientated.. Not easy with so many needs at one table! The food was 1st rate-fresh, delicious and some was from the on-site garden. I would highly recommend.
Can't wait to return
