    Go here for the view. Unfortunately the main dining room was already closed for the season but ate in the parlour which is historic and charming. Attentive host who was not pushy and got us to a great table. Food was so so but so is everything on Block Island.

    Excellent! The halibut special with local garden vegetables was the best dish I've had in years! (and I'm picky) We sat on the outdoor patio and the view was stunning. We will dine here again.

    Started with drinks on the lawn in Adirondack chairs overlooking ocean. Early reservation, so first to be seated on patio. STUNNING table view on patio overlooking ocean. Romantic and perfect. Food was delicious. Service very good from waitstaff, bar servers and hostess. Can't wait to return !

    We love the atmosphere at the Spring House and have been summering on BI for 20years. Our latest visit to the Spring House left us feeling like we were being overcharged for mediocre food. When you order a $32 pork chop and then have to spend $9 to get a veggie or starch (each!) to go with it you are now paying $50 for a pork chop dinner. Really? Granted it is a great view but there are lots of spots with great views on the island. Many of the entrees seemed overly complex and perhaps a bit pretentious. A well prepared and less "fancy" option or two would have been appreciated.

    I had made a resveration here a while back for an anniversary dinner and requested a table with a view. we should have been inside by the window which was romantic for couples, however, we got stuck in the middle of the dinning room. i even called earlier in the day to confirm and make sure we had a good seat! the food was okay, but the filet was burnt to a crisp on the outside and the waiter and staff treated us like we didn't belong there. i guess because we look very young for 34 year olds, however we were dressed well and had every right to be there. it was ignored we were there on an anniversary, which was upsetting. we spent good money there but felt cheated. however, we did come back to the lawn every night for drinks.

    We sat outside to celebrate our first night of vacation. Everything was delicious as you would expect from a restaurant of this caliber. The owner has her own flower and heb gardens. The butter was delivcious with a little chipotle, thyme and garlic. We had the Oyster Rockefellar, the tomato and burrata salad. Both were delicious! I never had burrata cheese and it was delicious.We split the lobster special that the Springhouse is known for; 2lbs stuffed with crab meat and topped with 2 shrimp and 2 scallops. It was plenty for the two of us to split!. The sweet potato hash was cubed sweet potato mixed with cubed bacon and maple syrup. It was delicious and complimented the lobster beautifully! Recommend to anyone looking for fine dining!

    I really wanted to like the SH but honestly the food was not up to par. We had the tuna app to begin which was paired with a very upripe and hard tomato. Just a weird combo and if your going to make that combo make sure it's right. The scallops for my entree were cooked perfectly but the corn with them was canned. Paella lacked taste and all the mussels on the plate closed. It was very soupy for a paella at $35 you expect better. SH has more competition now on the island and I think they need to work on menu items. $17 for 4 oysters? They don't charge that in boston, at least make it a half dozen. Service was wonderful which was our saving grace I can't remember her name. I would go back for drinks but not food. I do know they have great pi

    Pricey restaurant for the quality of food you get, but then it's Block Island. Go for the view & ambiance, not the food, though that is fine. I had a lobster tail with some veggies that cost $36. Wine list was decent. Loved the Gavi. One of the best sunset views on the island!

    We had an incredible dinner at the Spring House...and they asked as they sat us if it was a special occasion and we told them it was our anniversary, and they promptly brough over 2 huge glasses of champagne on the house - it was a perfect start to an incredible meal. Amazing tuna tar tar, yellow fin tuna, lamb and the most incredible rolls that are addictive topped off by incredible martinis. It was a perfect dinner and made our anniversary memorable!

    The menu was extremely limited and the prices were outrageous. There were only two other tables, but our service was slow. The waiter barely came around, it took about an hour to bring us bread. Portions were tiny and included nothing but the main meal. We used to eat hwre every year, it is now off our list to return.

    Best to dine at this spot during the off season...or at least the off-wedding season. The place was so loud with drunken wedding attendees and martini drinking singles we left before the server arrived - not that they ever would. This is a beautiful, classic American treasure that is being run down and ruined by too much boisterous partying...really was a bummer.

    We visited the Spring House Hotel restaurant for our 1st anniversary dinner and sat outside overlooking the ocean. The food was very good and the server was friendly and accommodating. I had the seared tuna while my wife had the seafood paella. We would order both again. We started our meals with two cups of New England chowder ($5/cup, quite reasonable) and served very warm. One minor issue was that we were overcharged on our drinks. The server said that the menu had not been updated to what the computer had. The server corrected the error and charged us the correct amount.

    The waitress was totally open to asking the chef to adjust my order to combine the special entree with my substitution request for garlic mashed potatoes and vegetable. AND the chef allowed the changes and my meal was spectacular! I was there with my daughter and her friend for a late Friday night dinner. We were staying at the hotel and joining the wedding on Saturday. Thank you for an awesome dining experience, I will absolutely recommend this place because of the flexibility and the quality of the food.

    We took the ferry to Block Island and had brunch at the Spring House. The weather was a 10 and the food, service and view were also a 10. My daughter wanted her own side of bacon so the waiter had the chef write her name on the bacon plate in some pretty colored syrup. The mimosas were wonderful and we sat out on the patio after to enjoy the view. Great day and will be going to eat there in June when we head back to the Block. By the way Block Island is are favorite place to stay during the off seasons.

The service was attentive, and the atmosphere was pleasant. While the menu was not extensive, everything was top-notch. Our booth was very comfortable, and we never felt hurried. My wife and i have been here before, and we will come again regularly.

    Food was just average. They served garlic bread, but when we asked for more, they came back with small "slider" type hamburger rolls...they said they ran out of garlic bread. I ordered Oban scotch, and the waiter came back and said that they ran out of it at the last wedding they held. I had "wild boar" ribs, which were very average. I think that I am going to take a break from the Spring House for a wile.

    Dining on the outdoor patio, with friends, overlooking the ocean on Labor Day weekend was one of the best meals we've ever had on Block Island. The old thyme cocktails, and baked stuffed lobster will keep us coming back every visit. The stuffing became the main course, and the lobster meat was taken back to the boat for a lovely fresh pasta with lobster feast the following evening.

    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.

    Having read many reviews of the Spring House here, I was a bit worried when I made reservations during our recent vacation on the Island. We had a rocky start with service, but the floor manger bailed the waitress out and we had a very pleasant meal. The food was also more creative and better than expected. All in all it is a great atmosphere to have a meal at least once during a visit to the island. We will go back.

    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.....

    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.

    The lobster tails were tough and flavorless. However, the filet mignon and whipped potatoes were delicious! The ambience was poor due to the music and the banquet like setting inside. If ever I were to visit again, I would get a drink at the bar and enjoy the view. The prices were way to high for what you get! Gratuity is already included so you do not get special service, in fact, the service was rather poor. Sorry but being truthful.

    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.

    The menu is nice, the shrimp cocktail, scallops and striped bass were delicious, dessert was fair, coffee wasn't good. The service was a little uneven. Beware being seated on the upper porch. We were a party of 2 with a nice table until they seated 2 large parties behind us, leaving little room between the tables. The servers should have gone around to serve the other tables. Instead they barreled through a small gap, jostling me repeatedly. Our server's attempt to correct the other servers didn't work, and we had to request moving.

    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!

    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.
