Food was great. Bock Chou was a little spicy but the scallops and tuna were cooked to perfection.

The lighting in the main dining room was a little too bright, but the bar was perfect and cozy. The steak was unreal! Couldn't get enough!

I have never had a bad meal at The Barn. Had a steak that would melt in your mouth. Best cut of meat I have ever had.

We had outdoor dining reservations and it was cold and windy but they have it heated and sectioned off and decorated so cute. The food was excellent and very well presented, the plates were beautiful and the sauces all to die for. The staff from front of the house back were all very friendly and pleasant. It was a Great Experience!! We actually went back the following evening.

A great evening. We began with the scallop appetizer. Delicious. . Two of us had the rack of lamb special. Sublime. Perfectly cooked. Scrumptious sauce.

So enjoyable

My wife and I went to Block Island for her birthday. We stayed at the magnificent 1661 Inn and had dinner at The Barn at Springhouse. From the welcome from our hostess to the table service from Emily, to the wine list and finally our appetizers and meals, everything was excellent!! We look forward to going back again.

We actually have never been to the island off season so this was a totally different experience!! We did have to wait unusually long even with the reservation but it was worth it!! We had an amazing waitress, and we even got awarded most “patient” couple of the night . Including free dessert!!! We will definitely go back again!

Pre Valentines day dinner. Atmosphere is terrific, tables enclosed in plexi but it's very well done, does not take away from ambiance. Wait staff was terrific, personable, a real plus! We shared appetizers including baked gnocchi special that was perfection, I opted for Eggplant that was a variation like I've never had and was incredible. This place delivers on a special night out in every way.

Terrific off-season visit to The Barn....two nights in a row. Emily and Justin were outstanding in providing everything that we would need and the Kitchen produced a welcome and excellent mid-Winter dinner. Such a comfortable and cozy spot. Can't wait to go back.

For New Year’s Eve. Rating would have been higher were it not for fair service. Wait person may have been new and seemed nervous. No discourse with the customers. Loved the Sole. Potatoes were too salty. Ambiance was great. Could have been made more “special” for the clientele, given the Holiday, and the cost of boating to the Island. Despite this, I would dine there again. A great Island gem.

My wife and I ate at The Barn on New Year's Eve and it was fantastic as always. I had an excellent piece of steak and my wife had Salmon. Sarah was our server and she was professional and pleasant. Covid precautions were taken seriously and dividers were in place. We actually ate in the closed-in outside area and it was an unexpected treat. The heaters kept us plenty warm and I actually preferred it to the inside, even in the winter.

The Barn is a Block Island gem. Great food and good service all packed into an intimate setting. Having said that, they have taken great care in separating tables with plexiglass panels and space to address the COVID 19 requirements. If you’re not comfortable with inside, the patio is tented, heated and has good airflow. Enjoy!

Dining at the Barn is so special to us. We are quiet season regulars and this is our favorite place, hands down. Chef Brian and the entire team never disappoint. Every course is delicious and the ambiance, even with social distancing, is cozy and welcoming. I adore this place so much. Thank you for another wonderful experience.

We were sat on the outside deck, that has been tented in with heaters. I would have preferred the option to sit inside, but we were comfortable temperature wise, until the end of our meal. I cannot imagine guests dining after us would have been comfortable.
Our server was adequate and friendly. Certainly not the most polished of service; dirty plates left on the table, empty wine glasses etc.
Our meal was very good. We started with a grilled romaine Caesar (outstanding!) and the clams casino (mushy, and under flavored) my date had the papperdelle bolognese, and myself the haddock. Both were delicious & perfectly cooked, presented.
We will definitely return !

Once again, The Barn did not disappoint. Even though there are only a few places to eat out at in the quiet months here, I would chose The Barn if there were 20. Brian and Tom do an amazing job.

In the present circumstances and in the time of Covid, it is especially appreciated to have a safe and comfortable place where we can go out to eat. Despite the rainy weather and the limitations of space and the situation, the evening spent earlier this week at The Barn was extremely pleasant and warm, with friendly service and choices that were appealing and delicious. Thank you for the opportunity to eat out!
