Although we have dined at the Spring House Hotel Restaurant several times over the years, we seem to always be underwhelmed. (If you're wondering why we go back....it's because the location and view of the Spring House is unbelievable!). The prices are high for the quality. The ingredients might be farm fresh, but the dishes are underwhelming and taste wise... More

I've been coming to the Spring House all my life. Usually, off season, there are almost no dining options on the island. This time, we went to The Barn at the Spring House for dinner. Finally a cool, contemporary restaurant! Rustic and authentic, with fresh ingredients from their own garden, the food was delicious. Staff was friendly and helpful (we... More

We were on Block Island in late March, definitely off season. This was our "one good meal out" during the trip, and it certainly was. We split roasted brussel sprouts with bacon, which were amazing! I had cod over polenta topped with red pesto, and my husband had linguini with clams in a wine/herb sauce. We both loved our meals.... More

Beautiful views from a classic outside bar on the porch, or grad a drink and sit in one of many Adirondack chairs overlooking a rolling lawn and gorgeous views of Block Island Sound. A short walk from Old Harbor, it's well worth the effort and a visit. We've had drinks here numerous times; they make iconic, and a host of... More

The review is for the restaurant only which we found to be exceptional. The four dishes we tried all were shared and without exception five star dishes. I think we agreed the short ribs took first place. The strip steak cooked perfectly with a sweet marscopane sauce and asparagus that was not as described on the menu but we were... More

We have been to the Barn on numerous occasions, food is great as is the service. The open kitchen adds to the vibrant atmosphere. Fun place to go for good food.

One Star was given because the wait with a reservation was so long, we left!!!!! We dined at The Barn on Thanksgiving Day. Food was good, so we decided to come back the next night to try their regular menu. The hostess (long blonde-haired woman) advised us that the first available reservation for Friday night would be at 8 pm.... More

We were so happy with our dining exprience. The wines were fairly priced and of generous portions. My cognac cream ravioli dish was light and flavorful and my husband enjoyed his pasta dish, too. The bread puddng dessert was amazing. The tiramisu was very good, but for $10 the portion was not adequate. We should have shared the bread pudding!... More

The Barn is a smaller dining room with a limited menu and is open when weddings close the main Spring House dining room. We had a great meal - appetizers, main, and dessert. There was limited seating so be sure to call ahead.

The Main Dining Room consists of our grand indoor dining room, as well as our ocean view patio, and provides patrons with exquisite fine dining. When available, the Spring House Hotel kitchen strives to use vegetables from our very own gardens, Many of our dish’s are created solely to utilize what we grow in our own backyard. We believe that self sustainability with organically grown herbs and vegetables is the healthiest way to cook. We strive to source all produce organically and or hormone and pesticide free if available, collaborating with Farm Fresh Rhode Island, we are able to source local farmers and purveyors throughout New England.
