We dined at the Block island Oyster bar and Grill in their outside Lovely Garden setting at the manisees hotel. Service was excellent even at the end of the season. Food was beautifully presented but disappointing in terms of flavor. Both dinners were bland (scallops and the blackened chicken Mac and cheese. )
Although called the block island oyster bar they only offered 1 type of oysters. Expensive for very bland food.
Our favorite restaurant on Block Island! Love the oysters thermidor, the swordfish, the cioppino - truly everything is outstanding!! Great service and beautiful ambiance and location as well.
Great staff and great food. Highly recommended!
Great food … really delicious!!! Great service!!
Block Island Oyster Bar and Grill is now hard to find, cleverly concealed in the Hotel Manisses on Block Island. The restaurant - especially the gardens and grounds, are mesmerizing yet exquisite. The service is sweet, stunning, professional, and friendly. The FOOD is excellent; ask for your risotto to be cooked another minute and creamier. Do go, so beautiful!
We had the most beautiful View at our table outside. Excellent food, excellent service, I would definitely recommend this restaurant. I can’t wait to go back.
Don't miss this restaurant. We sat at the inside bar and enjoyed the "vibe". My wife and I chatted it up with our fellow bar patrons, who were most entertaining and so easy to talk with. The raw oysters were fabulous. In had one Lobster Thermidor Oyster that a fellow bar patron offered me and it was an "OMG". My wife thoroughly enjoyed the NY Sirloin steak. I had the Miso Glazed Cod that was so good! The wine was plentiful!
Food, service and ambiance were excellent!
Pretty venue, but a little noisy indoors. Outside looked wonderful.
Very enjoyable evening all the way around-service, food, ambience.
Kim was awesome making us feel at home
Service was great to
I missed the old days when they have white tablecloth outside dinning. now the restaurant doesn't look fancy anymore. I wish they could bring more the white tablecloth. thank you.
What a perfect evening! A wonderful outdoors setting, attentive/friendly waitstaff and outstanding menu that presents delectable offering from appetizers through the entree on even on to dessert. Our food was delicious and beautifully presented. We had a superb experience and look forward to returning---soon. I can see this becoming my new favorite Island restaurant. Thank you to Kimerbly and all her staff for an exceptional evening.
food was awesome, service by tyler was spot on! Best experience of the weekend
Don't miss dinner outside at The Manisees. It's a special treat.
If you’re looking for a place to celebrate a special occasion on the island, consider Block Island Ouster Bar & Grill. We were here on our honeymoon and our server (Julia) helped make our experience special! The food was delicious - the lobster mashed potatoes are a must!! We will absolutely come back here the next time we are on the island.
Decent place. No where near our favorite on the island. Food was mediocre for the prices. Everything lacked seasoning. The lamb chops were ordered medium and arrived beyond well done. The service and the bar were above average. I described a cocktail and was brought pretty much what I asked for. That was the highlight. Noisy family ruined the outdoor setting. Would not go back.
They have a beautiful garden area for dining. Food was great and they were very accommodating.
Lovely experience: relaxing atmosphere,great food, excellent service.
Totally overpriced mediocre food. Really not worth the money. Setting is beautiful. Come for drinks. Go somewhere else to eat
Excellent food and service. We enjoyed the small and watermelon salads and ciopino and Clam and linguine main dishes. All were excellent, and our service was flawless.
Probably our favorite restaurant on BI. Beautiful outdoor garden.
Love this place so quaint. The food was excellent. We sat outdoors, it was just lovely.
We had a fantastic meal. Perhaps best on Block Island. The grilled parmesan oysters were amazing, followed by a super fresh and large strawberry and field green salad. The warm bread with a delicious lemony honey butter was terrific. The perfectly cooked swordfish served with lobster mashed potatoes was the BEST EVER! Can't wait to return.
Excellent service and quality food. Wonderful dining experience.
The food is amazing. Very good service. Overall, great evening
Restaurant services now run by Kimberly and she and her team are doing an excellent job. Menu, service, food presentation and quality all outstanding. Garden and patio ambiance also charming. Highly recommend.
Phenomenal food & gorgeous gardens. Would highly recommend!
The ambiance cannot be beat and isn’t replicated anywhere on the island. Sometimes a great venue doesn’t translate to a great meal. Not the case at Block Island oyster Bar. All six of our meals were outstanding. Service was attentive and friendly. Highly recommend!
Lovely ambience and a wonderful waitress added to the wonderful food. A truly lovely experience/
Absolutely wonderful food! We had the grilled Parmesan oyster appetizer, which was delicious. The halibut was the best I’ve ever had. My husband had salmon, and our daughter had the seafood cippiano -both dishes were marvelous. The service was both friendly and efficient, and the indoor ambiance and outdoor gardens are beautiful!
Vacation birthday dinners
The portions were small, lacked flavor, and were over priced.
Well we have been to BI for many years and have never had the opportunity to dine at the restaurant. Made a 5:30 reservation which was fine for us. Got there early and had a drink at the outside bar by the street. Lovely. Went downstairs at 5:30. The lady led us outside to our table which was nice. In the garden patio area. From there it was interesting. Orders lobster bisque and spring rolls. Lobster bisque didn’t have any substantial lobster in it. But it still was tasty. Just no discernible meat. Spring rolls were good. Not oily and crispy. Next was a split Caesar salad. It was served prior to the appetizers being finished. Now if you see your customers finishing their appetizers would you not wait until they were finished? A salad doesn’t get cold. Just wait until they are done. The Caesar salad was good. Enough dressing and Parmesan cheese. Good. Then came the entrees. A NY Strip and the blackened chicken Mac and cheese. Both were adequate. The strip was I thought a little thin but cooked the way I ordered medium rare. The Mac and cheese was not over done and I did my best to help out with the eating. In the middle of eating my steak they asked if my wife wanted a box for hers. Now that’s a major mistake for a restaurant that prides itself the way this one does. I was still eating. Obviously eating my steak and the request came. To be honest with everything that has gone on and severs being in high demand I can forgive and understand some of the issues. Still left an over 20 percent tip. Lastly the next time a sever after hearing thank you says no problem. I’m going to flip. Really I won’t. I’ll just forget it and chalk it up to the new kids!!! Won’t give the restaurant the top rating that many do but it was ok in my book.
Ran out of items such as oysters and lobster
The meal was delicious and the setting/ambience was beautiful! The staff and service was excellent! We will look forward to returning!
Very good food, very friendly service would happily go again, a must go for sure
We were celebrating an engagement so outside dining was perfect. Staff was extremely friendly & knowledgeable. Food was presented beautifully & absolutely delicious. I had heard the portions were small & I totally disagree. We were 7 people…7 different appetizers & meals…all plentiful(& we’re big eaters)
Our outdoor dinner was wonderful. We ate at sunset, the garden setting is beautiful. Food was very good with several creative options to choose from. Service was friendly and attentive. It was a romantic and quiet dinner, nice after a long day at tue beach.
