Short and sweet - literally had one of the best French onion soups I ever had. The cheese was thick and gooey. I scrapped every last drop and the dried cheese on the side. And the burger was also one of the best. So juicy and tender. Bacon was cooked perfectly. The view to go with the meal made it... More

3 of our group ordered clam chowder, 1 ordered minestrone. All were served barely warm. The chowder was sent back and credited off our bill. The person with the minestrone made believe it was gazpacho. We had pizza which was OK tho the crust was a bit thick. The Gelato dessert was excellent, as was the service.

Went there with a group of 10 this past weekend and while the setting is fabulous the service was sub par. It took us over an hour to get seated besides the restaurant being half full. When we did get seated the hostess sat our group on a raised platform. This would not have presented a problem but about 50... More

My husband and I each ordered the pesto chicken sandwich for lunch. The chicken was thick and juicy and the fries were amazing! They grow many of their own vegetables n their grounds. The best part was the view of the ocean. We were lucky enough to see a whale breaching in the distance which was entertaining. The waiter told... More

Mixed feelings. Had two meals, one fantastic, and one really not. Lunch was so good we went for dinner the next day. The second meal, both our appetizers and entrée were under cooked. We had the lamb lolly-chops; two were good, but the third piece was rare. They were inconsistently seasoned as well. My wife's scallops were great, but my... More

Spring house bistro is the restaurant to visit if you only have time for one on Block Island. They do not take reservations but the wait is part of the experience! You can sit in Adirondack chairs atop a hill with a breathtaking view of the water or on a shady open veranda in comfy chairs with access to bar... More

Went two nights in a row it was so good. The setting and the food were awesome, and the bistro prices were very reasonable.

We had lunch and dinner here because we enjoyed it so much. The food was very good and the service was exceptional. The view is extraordinary. This is the place to go for cocktails and a sunset.

We enjoyed some beers and calamari at the outside bar while watching a sail boat regatta off the cliffs. Food and service were very good.

We were seated immediately and tended to by very friendly summer help but the food never came out. Actually it did in just under an hour. Long time to wait for a lunch!

We are sorry to hear about the slow service you received while dining with us. We hope you were able to enjoy the view in the mean time. Sometimes our kitchen is a little overwhelmed and our food takes a little longer to come out. Thank you for choosing to dine with us. We hope to serve you again soon.... More

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.
