I have to say I travel a lot and this hotel is amazing the history the beauty and the charm are to die for.. the views on the deck while eating brunch looking at.the the beautiful ocean and feeling the summer breeze and hearing people laughing and having a great time. Something about this new England charm hotel makes u feel like your living a dream.. thanks National hotel for everything u do to make us feel like we are home.

Crab & Shrimp Spring Rolls

One of the best apps we've ever had! My teens especially love them, and now we always get this when we visit. It's like sushi meets spring rolls!

Banana Almond French Toast

We recently were on Block and our spot did not serve breakfast, so we ended up at the National. The french toast was incredible, such a treat on vacation!

New England Lobster Bake

Ah, the lobster bake! This is my favorite thing on the menu at the National Hotel. The lobster is always perfect, the clams on the side are delicious, the corn, juicy and crunchy, and the potatoes, delicious. The staff are always very attentive and nice and the view is great. Looking out at the water, past the flags lining the hotel's front, it's the perfect New England spot.

Seared Diver Scallops*

This was absolutely the best scallops dish I have ever had. Added to the fantastic view from the porch while eating dinner it was an amazing time. My wife and I came over on the dinner express ferry out of New London. Made our reservations online which was a terrific feature that the National has.

Banana Almond French Toast

Treat yourself! If you haven't tried the Banana Almond French Toast you are missing out. This is one of the most delicious breakfast dishes you will ever have. If you really want to spoil it on the deck overlooking the jetty. Now that's vacation.

Baked Brie

The Baked Brie is amazing. Wrapped in flaky puff pastry and served with fruit, this dish is perfect at any time of day. I order the Baked Brie every time I visit the National Hotel.

Seared Diver Scallops*

We had the pleasure of staying at The National for a friend's wedding and enjoying exceptionally fresh seared diver scallops that had the perfect balance of sweetness and the brine of the sea. Seared just enough to have great texture and not so much to be grainy, these scallops will bring me back before too long!

When I stayed in a suite a few years ago, I absolutely loved the location! A walk away from the beach, the dock, and entire adventures! The meals I enjoyed at the National Hotel were also great.

Hot Lobster Roll

Absolutely delicious! I,VE been coming to the National Hotel for 40 years. Once my cousin flew us out. Another time got stranded on BI in Oct with my husband for 5 days...the seas were too rough for the ferry. I would love to live out there! You folks were so nice to us...Everytime!

Lobster Pasta

The lobster pasta is absolutely to die for. This is the first place we stop on our annual block island trip. The cream sauce is just light and amazing, the pasta tender and fresh and the chanterelle mushrooms and tomatoes add the perfect finish. It comes with an insane amount of lobster which is always cooked to perfection. Paired with a glass of crisp white wine or even our favorite, a mojito, and you have the perfect meal.

Banana Almond French Toast

Where do I start? The National has been our favorite hotel on Block Island for years and years. The first time we ever came, my breakfast, which I thoroughly enjoyed was the Banana Almond French Toast. Covered in bananas, chopped almonds, and whipped cream, I savored every bite of it. Breakfast always comes with a beautiful view of the glimmering Atlantic Ocean (and breeze). It was a great way to start the day. The service is wonderful. Everyone is always very nice, and I enjoy talking to them about where they came from, or why they were here this summer. Coming to the National has become a family tradition, and having the French Toast, mine. I hope to return again this year and have my favorite French Toast again, head off to the beach, bike around the island, and sleep well in one of the wonderfully appointed rooms at your hotel.

Steamers were sweet and plentiful. Great way to start off our meal. The mudslides were so refreshing on the hot afternoon!

Nice tidy room! The hotel employees were really nice. Conveniently located close to the ferry. The only drawbacks are: no a/c in the rooms & the hotel is not handicapped accessible, as it has a lot of stairs, so travel light!

Some try to imitate but can never duplicate! This plate is light, full of flavor and perfectly delicious. We visit the island once a year every year and I look forward to this particular meal every year! For our family it's not a block island trip unless we stop to eat on the deck at the national to enjoy amazing views and even better food!

Lobster Pasta

Hard to choose one! Everything on the menu is exceptional. Year after year we can count on exceptional food and service. In addition to the lobster pasta, my family always looks forward to the steak frites, swordfish, and so much more! Top shelf mudslides are best on the island too!
