It's not fine dining but the lobster salad and the Bloody Marys were first rate and good value. Friendly service, and there's parking--which is a rarity on Block Island.

Large menu options. Alicia was a great waitress. Beet salad was delicious. Tender and large grilled asparagus. Grilled oysters were very good. Nice restaurant across the street from the ocean.

We had dinner here on Friday night. The Thai calamari is excellent. My husband loved the swordfish and the fried clams with fries was very good. Good margaritas and beer selection. Nice view.

Enjoyed a seafood lunch. Noisy crowd so be prepared for this. Had clam strips, mussels, a cider... Good place just out of town if you are hungry for lunch.

I hear about this from other visitors so I went. Neat outside looking at beach. Great fun with the Rhode Island clam chowder, huge shrimp appetizer and wedge salad. The waitress was great and the mudslides were to die for!!
