My wife and I enjoyed our anniversary with the fabulous staff serving the most wonderful swordfish and lobster dinners. The food was plentiful as it was delicious. The fish was cooked to perfection and the sides of herb potatoes paired with healthy amounts of vegetables finished off with some of the best desserts on the Block. We couldn't have asked for better time or meal because when staff caught wind of our anniversary they brought dessert with candles to congratulate us. Best location and accommodation on the Island. Can't wait to go back.

We have stayed at the National every year for at least the last 10 years. We love it! The staff are warm and welcoming. Julie the GM especially goes above and beyond. The hotel's location, restaurant, firepits, along with one of the few onsite parking lots if you bring your car, make it a great choice. Highly recommend!

Fresh Catch

The National Hotel is the best place to stay on Block Island. I love having the Fresh Catch of fish on the porch overlooking the harbor. The view of the ferry coming into the harbor while having this yummy lunch or dinner can not be beat. Great hotel, restaurant and wonderful friendly service!

Old Harbor Suite

My husband and I visited back in July 2020. We had to book a room last minute because other plans fell through. Guest services were so very helpful and pleasant to deal with. This was my first visit to Block Island and they certainly left a positive feeling. We spent the night there and truthfully will definitely go back.

Local Clams

Favorite dishes are the whole bellied clams and clam chowder without a doubt. Because we travel form the West Coast each year my mouth starts to drool come late June when I know I will be able to enjoy these dishes. Last time we had the clams we must have ordered it 10 times during our two week stay. They are that good. Fried perfectly and not over battered so you can enjoy the actual flavor of the sea. Also we have tried every clam chowder the island has to offer and always make our way back to enjoy it at The National. They do not skimp on the clams or the flavor at all. So creamy and just the right thing you want when inevitably there is rainy day on the island.

Lobster Pasta

Lobster Pasta, the name says it all. HUGE chunks of lobster in a creamy sauce that's to die for! It's by far my favorite dish!

Buttermilk Pancakes

These are truly THE best pancakes I've ever eaten! We stay here almost every year and our mouths are always watering on the ferry for the pancakes. It's such a beautiful view on the porch. Once I left my wallet on the table after breakfast and ran back from the beach to find that a kind, honest patron had given it to the hostess. The people are as sweet as the pancakes!
