Swordfish was delightful, cooked perfect and amazing flavor .
The lobster roll is one of the best I have ever had. Lobster is super fresh and delicious.
This was one of the best parts of our yearly trip to the Block! We stayed at The National (out first time) in the Old Suit on the first floor. Not only was our stay amazing and the staff wonderful, but my daughter had the wine delivered to our room as a surprise birthday gift to me! What a nice surprise and the staff did a wonderful job presenting it! We will defiantly return here and have since raved time our friends and coworkers about our experience. Great job National!
Absolutely delicious!! Perfect!
we had Two drinks and Two Bistro Salads with grilled chicken for lunch it came out quick and it was Delicious, along with excellent table service would absolutely return there for dinner
A must-have! If you're a lobster, cheese and pasta lover, this is the perfect dish. Super generous portion size but I manage to practically lick the plate. I have it at least twice during our annual trip but would eat it for every meal if my family wouldn't judge. Not just my favorite National meal, my favorite BI meal for sure. Have been talking about this dish for years and can't wait until August.
Delicious Fish n Chips. Probably the best by far. Husband ordered two plates.
Nothing like enjoying the Calamari with a couple of Dark and Stormy's out on the porch to say SUMMER. This is a summer moment we look forward to each year. Delicious food, friendly service, beautiful views and grounds. Can't wait to come back.
Delicious fish and chips, gorgeous setting! Staff was friendly and breakfast was also excellent!
Enjoyed S'mores and cocktails on the back patio. My husband sipped a bourbon and I enjoyed a glass of wine recommended by the server while we roasted the marshmallows and chocolate over the fire. Perfect! .
The banana almond French toast is delicious and the perfect breakfast before a long day exploring the island. Nothing beats a breakfast on the deck overlooking the harbor!
Eating this dish on the hotel deck defines summer for me
I have been coming to The National every year for several years. My favorite part of our stay is enjoying The New England Lobster bake while dining on the porch overlooking the harbor.The 1 and 1/4 lb lobster is always fresh and delicious. It comes with roasted corn, PEI mussels and roasted potatoes. I can't wait to come back to Block Island and The National this summer! Thanks!
On my last day at The National, I enjoyed a Bloody Mary with all of the toppings. This beverage was absolutely something to write home about. If I wasn't so hungover, I probably would've enjoyed a pot of the clam chowder with it. Highly recommend dining at The National- even if it's just for a liquid lunch.
Great Chowder on the Block! Can't beat sitting on the deck on a sunny day at the National.
Whether it's your first time on The Block or you've been coming to "The Bermuda of The North" for years, no visit is complete without a visit or stay, at The National Hotel. From 'The" best porch bar on the PLANT, to the awesome rooms and service, to smores by the firepit at night. The National is the place to be! We always stay there if they are not booked (they book up quick!) and have so many fond memories of laughing with old friends, or making new friends at the porch bar. Love that the staff REMEMBERS us! It's like going to visit and stay with an old friend.
Had a wonderful time last May. Great food, close to the beach. My entire family came out to enjoy the island. looking forward for a repeat in 2020. Must say my daughter who stayed at a pricier place the prior year could not believe we had a private bathroom. She will be back to the National.
My husband and I came here for our 25th wedding anniversary. For our celebratory dinner, I select the lobster fettuccine. This dish was so delicious, I can taste it when I think of it. Mouth watering and unforgettable ! The lobster was succulent and the cheese sauce was perfectly light, and wonderful. This year we will make it back for our 30th wedding anniversary and if this dish is not on the menu, I surely will make a special request for my favorite dish at this lovely hotel.
My absolute favorite place to stay , eat , enjoy an amazing sunrise , and just people watch while sipping on a refreshing cocktail . The National Hotel has been my "got to" place every summer for over 20 years. Your experience and my experiences at the National never disappoint . They have an phenomenal wrap around porch with the most hospitable staff to enjoy a great New England meal , appetizer of just have a few cocktails and RELAX. My summer is not complete without even just an overnight visit to my most tranquil place ..... The Block ! I cant say enough compliments about this hotel. You must experience the beauty yourself , as i will again this summer again in 2020. See you soon BI ....
I have the Lobster Pasta every time I have dinner at The National! Everything else I have tried has been great, but the Lobster Pasta is unbelievable. Always just the right flavor and level of richness with nice balance from the sun dried tomatoes! I probably have this dish 6-8 times a summer. Of course everything else at The National is top notch and it is the perfect place for drinks anytime with an amazing view and great entertainment.
Creamy, flavorful and well seasoned. Clams were fresh and pasta was perfectly cooked. I had this dish the night my boyfriend (now husband) told me that he was falling in love with me. A day to remember, a dish to remember ♡
I had it two days in a row! Can't wait to go back and have it again!
The Poke always fresh and flavorful. It, along with the Chowder is our "go to" dishes. But honestly, you really can't go wrong with any selection. (Bring back the Bruschetta, please)
Sitting outside on the porch of The National Hotel having breakfast is a delight! It is especially fun to have the Banana Almond French toast. This is a yummy breakfast dish that is sweet, delicious and always perfectly prepared . I always have this breakfast every time I visit Block Island and stay at The National Hotel. The porch overlooks the beautiful harbor and it is the best place in the island to have breakfast!!
Our party sat at the front bar overlooking Old Harbor and enjoyed excellent service from bartender Jessica. We were especially impressed with the attention to detail evidenced by the plexiglas dividers along the bar between parties. Everybody has implemented dividers between bartender and patron but seeing this additional level of protection was most welcomed. Well done National!
In case you needed to hear this: Order this dish, you will not regret it. The perfect meal, in a perfect setting. When I daydream about dinners on Block Island, I think of this.
Delicious. Such a savory and sweet mix is the perfect thing for after a day at the beach! We'll be back for more!
By far my favorite appetizer at The National. I come back year after year to sit down and order this! Just perfection!
A block island must along with the National's famous Mudslide. Always pair a cup of fresh chowder with my meals. Summer favorite on Block!
My husband and I chose the National Hotel for our honeymoon and couldn't have been happier. The hot lobster roll was my favorite for lunch -- the lobster was so fresh! We can't wait to return to the the National Hotel for the food, location, and gorgeous ocean views.
What a great weekend, wind blowing so ever gently and the sun warming your spirit. We were taken away by the sights and sounds, such a relaxing and yet lively hotel. Beyond perfection, they really make your experience a happy one. Carry on national. Your number 1 in our book!
Very deliciuos breakfast Cant wait to come back this summer
BEST Bloody Marys around! Love all of the spice and you can't beat the service or the view! Can't ever leave just having one!
For the last 5/6 years my sisters/ cousin started staying at National for cousins time. This suite never disappoints as it's always top notch time after time. I know I look forward to there Breakfast daily to the start off the day on that porch.. Just Beautiful scenery Everyone from the front desk to the cleaners kitchen bartender , the staff period are just so nice an will go above an beyond for your needs if there's any to make your stay wonderful. . That fire pit in the evening always an amazing time with meeting so many friendly people from all over.Its the ATMOSPHERE at the NATIONAL that keeps us coming back year after year!
The ocean corner queen is our favorite room in the hotel. Ocean breezes and the most spectacular sunrises overlooking the Harbor. Doesn't get any better!
Best clam chowder by far.
Best chowder I've ever eaten, this is my go-to everywhere so I'm an expert. Makes you wish you could swim in it!
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.
