We were told to come here for dollar oysters. Sorry that was last month. Ok no worries - but decent food would have been nice. Instead we got greasy rubbery and flavorless calamari. The worst crab cakes - 90%breadcrumbs. We ran out as fast as we could and had to buy another lunch. That's how bad it was.

Across from beach, always crowded in summer, good food, a bit more affordable than the more stodgy places in town. Something for everyone on the menu. Don't miss it.

Friendly service good food and great location. Went for lunch and dinner. Kids begged to go back which is always a good sign!

We flew in to Block Island for the day and wanted to have an early dinner. We sat outside and had the fresh squeezed lemonade, the lobster roll and the fish taco special. Both meals were very good. We were surprised at the generous portion of lobster provided in the roll. I asked for a side of tartar sauce with the fish tacos as they were a little under seasoned, and the tartar sauce was just the extra touch it needed. The lemonade tasted like a mix rather than fresh squeezed, it was still good.

We loved the vibe at this beachfront restaurant. Staff was very friendly. Cocktails were good. We enjoyed the raw bar selections. One of us had a nice lobster. The swordfish for another was tasteless unfortunately. We may return but were a little let down by the fish.
