About

At The Spring House Hotel, the kitchen utilizes produce picked from our very own gardens overlooking The Atlantic Ocean. Many of our dishes are created solely to utilize what is growing in our own backyard. We believe that simple, fresh ingredients create the best taste. Collaborating with Farm Fresh Rhode Island, we are able to source from local farmers and purveyors throughout New England. Whether you are joining us for a martini on the lawn, pizza on the veranda, or baked stuffed lobster on the patio, we look forward to providing you with a memorable experience.

Service was slow. Waited 15 minutes for a glass of wine. Overpriced and limited entree choices. Food was tasty though.

I thought the food was excellent. The service was excellent as well. I particularly enjoyed the Brussel sprouts. We both had fish (salmon and halibut), cooked perfectly. I will go back.

The food was great! And the ambience was incredible! We sat on the patio and had a 180 degree view of the ocean. We saw deers running by during our meal. It was magical. I would highly recommend!!!

The food and service are excellent at the Spring house. As we are now in the fall they have a limited menu but it does not disappoint. We will continue to visit there on our Block Island visits.

Absolutely stunning location for dining in Block Island. Easy walk from ferry to hotel. I haven been there many times and never had a bad meal. Unfortunately we had to eat in the bar room but it was still enjoyable. Great Onion soup and pizza. The Spring House is the oldest hotel on the island with great views.

Food was amazing but we were seated in outside room that was tented. Next time I would specify main doing room. For the price the room we were in was very loud, brightly lit and not at all cozy. For the price and quality of the meal the ambiance was terrible.

Another great dinner experience at the Spring House. Emily was our server and she was fantastic. The food was delicious, my husband said it was the best osso buco he has ever had. We had drinks at the bar after and the service was great and the drinks were perfect!

The quality of the chicken dishes we ordered was not worth the price charged. The setting is beautiful, which is really what you are paying for.

We ate outdoors (on a patio with a canopy) on a Monday evening. Even though it was cooler than normal for mid-September, it was toasty once the heaters came on.

The view was fantastic (it was right around sunset), and the servers were outstanding. I had the salmon, and it was among the best I've ever had, if not the best. My wife, who doesn't eat meat, had the "Duck Duo without the duck", which was excellent, and they adjusted the price to reflect that the meal was only the side dishes.

This is a great spot for a romantic dinner!

Upon arriving to the restaurant at 6:55pm, we were told to wait for our 7pm reservation in the lobby. The hostess did not ask us if we wanted to sit outside or inside when a table became available, although when I did ask to be seated inside, she stated she gave up the last table to someone that had a reservation later than ours. We were then led to our table at 7:15 to the outside patio that was enclosed with plastic walls and small ceiling heaters. It was really windy and very cold and the small ceiling heaters did not warm our area up at all. Adding to that was the metal table and chairs we had to sit on, which retained the cold. We ordered a pizza and because of the wind and cold, the pizza stayed hot for about 3 minutes. So we only ate 1 piece each, asked for our check and left because we were freezing. Would not recommend this place to anyone unless they improve their customer service at the hostess stand and offer to everyone coming in whether they want to sit indoors or outdoors.

The space has a wonderful view. When the view goes away due to darkness, the place has lovely lighting and heaters in the tented (clear) space. The space literally glows. Great job fir a COVID19 accommodation! The food was superb (new fall menu). I had the mushroom toast app (fabulous and full of flavor) and the Osso Bucco pork - fantastic! The polenta and zucchini great additions. My date had the French onion soup which he thoroughly enjoyed and the Pappardelle Bolognese entree was hearty and flavorful. Great experience all the way around! Will definitely go back!

Expectations for island dining aren’t high, but the Spring House is a notable exception. Perfect cocktails, a delicious burrata salad and pork osso bucco was followed by a light, warm bread pudding. All superb. The filet was perfectly cooked, and the glazed heirloom carrots were just sweet enough to let the carrots’ flavor to shine through. We asked for marinara to accompany our calamari, and were served a cold marinara bursting with freshness. This was a memorable meal the kind that only comes around once in a great while.

It was our 5 year anniversary. We had a gorgeous view from our table. While expensive the food was good. The water service was also great. Our waitress - eh... after we ordered we heard another waitress telling her table the specials ... one of which was Twin lobster tails… Which I probably would’ve ordered had I known about them. So that was disappointing.

Two tables next to us of ten drunken extremely loud men, screaming, roaring. Manager did not care, dismissive when we asked for help.

Very mediocre. Better options on the island for food and hospitality. In major need of renovations; it’s not “charming”, the owners just refuse to spend any money on the place and it’s evident.

Ok, so this not so great review reflects summer dining outside under the tent. Generally, inside dining is lovely- quiet-sophisticated. During our visit this year inside dining was not available, though later in the night they did open up tables due to a storm. We did not enjoy our meal under the tent. The acoustics are terrible, my parents were unable to hear our conversation. There were families with small children which added to the noise level. The servings were generous, we had the burrata salad, Brussels sprouts, steak, grilled fish. The food was good, as were the drinks. We enjoyed the "dessert tray" which is always a nice preview, and had great desserts. We will return, but likely only in dine indoors.
