  • Great view !
  • Great views from the porch!
  • Lemon ice on a hot afternoon is a must (RI Dell's plus vodka)
  • A bit of a tourist trap with a great view. Shrimp and crab spring roll sounded delicious but was made with fake crab.
  • One of the few (outdoor) restaurants on Block Island that lets you bring your dog
  • No elevator so if you have limited mobility ask for the ground floor room. It's enormous and has the only a/c too
  • Lobster salad salad is delicious
  • The scallop entree was killer, and everything else was near-perfect too.
  • Disappointing. Clam chowder had no clam and the bill turned out more expensive than the prices on the menu. Bad practice I would say.
  • They need some work on their body Mary
  • Ask for Emily as your server she's the bee's Knees;)
  • Wednesday night mojito night
  • View wonderful. Grilled Cheese outstanding. So is salmon
  • I agree with previous post, don't get the spring rolls. Though the mussels are great!
