Beautiful restaurant with a gorgeous view! Very romantic! Service was quick but they also weren't very busy. Although the menu wasn't very large, everything is uniquely prepared, amazingly fresh, and had phenomenal flavor! We had the best pork chop and scallops we've ever tasted! Creme brûlée and wine was excellent as well! Definitely recommend it!

Excellant - our new favorite place
Couldn't have had a better stay on Block Island. The hotel is a gem of the island. Built in the mid 1800's. Our room was clean and functional, flat screen TV, private bath (shower). This is NOT a modern hotel, in fact, there really aren't any modern hotels on Block Island - so expect an old and grand staircase instead a elevators, ocean breezes not air conditioning. But that's the charm of staying here and Block Island. There are two reasons why we're returning; Hospitality - staff was very accommodating and gracious. (Notable were Dave, Christine, Adam, Jen and Alicia. The food; stuffed lobster was the best I ever had! The view - breath taking, located on a hill overlooking the ocean. Great sun spot to watch the sun rise. D/T CT

Top of the price range for
Top of the price range for Block Island but worth it for the view and ambiance. The menu has a great deal of variety packed into a small number of selections. The dishes are excellently prepared and the plating is very good. Portions are reasonable but be prepared to spend top dollar for a full meal including drinks and wine. Arrive early and enjoy cocktails and appetizers on the deck before your dinner seeing.

Great Dining experience
The Spring House restaurant staff go to great measure to satisfy. As an extensively traveled foodie, I would recommend you not miss an opportunity to dine there wether a hotel guest or not. The steak I had was as good ( or better) than I have had anywhere on the planet and My wife's baked stuffed lobster was phenomenal. The wait staff were very, very helpful, professional and attentive, when needed. Simply fantastic. The F&B director, Frank Debiase III, went to great lengths to accommodate our requests happily and gracefully. This simply was the best anniversary dinner we've had in 31 years.
If you are willing to pay a fair price in return for excellent quality on Block Island wether it be lunch, tapas or fine dinning, go here!

Don't miss it!
A trip to Block island is not complete without a visit to the Spring House. The consistently great food is a match for the stunning views. Dine outside if you can- either the scenic veranda for more casual food or the outside dining area, also overlooking the ocean. Live the fact that it is on Open Table. I think it's the only Block Island restaurant on it.

Gorgeous View and Great Food
This was my 2nd time dining at The Spring House. It is a special restaurant with a great view and a wonderful menu. I ordered scallops which were divine! We ate indoors because we had an 830 reservation and after it gets dark this time of the summer you get dive-bombed my beetles, so we passed on the outdoor dining. The inside decor is beautiful, but it's a shame to miss the spectacular view that The Spring House offers. Before dinner, we had drinks on the lawn in big Adirondack chairs (the drink menu is fantastic!). Still, the best part of dining here is definitely sitting outdoors on the large veranda. And don't miss the fabulous pizzas!

We have gone to Spring House several times when we go to Block Island. The menu is diverse with both meat and fish dishes and even a vegan/vegetarian dish. The wait staff is attentive and the view on the patio is outstanding. We have not dined inside.

Well worth the price $$$$$
Our table for two overlooking the lawn and the ocean beyond was fantastic! We started with fried zucchini blossoms that were wonderful. Accompanied by a nice Banfi pinot grigio, we both had the 2 pound baked stuffed lobster that ran $65 each - to die for! There was so much meat that the potatoes and green beans that came as sides were mostly untouched. All evening, our waitress Candace, and the boys that helped her out, kept us relaxed, entertained, and without reason to be less than ecstatic about our experience. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. DO take note, as mentioned on their website, that as the sun goes down, the wind can pick up and cool the air quite a bit. Bring a jacket, or, as we did, have an extra glass of wine.

One word describes this location, food and view.

great food with a beautiful view
my husband and I sat outside on the veranda Dec with a beautiful view of the ocean. Service was excellent. My husband had stuff lobster and he loved it and I had scallops with lobster confetti and it was excellent. We love it there and I can't wait to go back.

All around wonderful evening
We had low expectations for a "tourist" location, or at least that the price would not match the meal (from a family of 6 foodies that eats out often at well-regarded restaurants in Fairfield County CT and occasionally, NYC and Westchester). We ordered 6 appetizers, dinners, and desserts and each was quite good. The braised little necks, clam chowder, tomato and burrata, and roasted veggie tower were excellent. Locally sourced items (from the garden a few feet away!) were very fresh and well prepared. Great dinners were the diver scallops, striped bass, and paella. All fish was fresh, prepared so that the fish was not smothered. Enjoyed fresh herbs and veggies. Service was friendly and attentive. Venue is outstanding. A special location.

no menu or price online?
I wanted to try the Spring house for awhile but had no idea what the menu was like or the prices. Well, 9.00 for a side dish is crazy when the main meal is 36.00.....yes the food was good, but I could have made those mash potatoes and grilled asparagus for much less....so i definately won't eat there again...not when I can get a 5 course meal at the Atlantic for 50.00 per person.....It was cool sitting outside on the patio, though. I also think the menu should be on line and in the Block Island dining guide.....

Always our favorite
The Spring House is always our favorite place to go on Block Island; it's easy, it's friendly and charming, and it's so nie to have drinks on the porch and then go inside for dinner. This year we were pleasantly surprised to find that the food seemed to have been taken up a level; we have never had a better meal there. Everyone was exceptionally pleased. We'll definitely go back next year.
