Let’s chat real quick about our favorite Block Island restaurants. Having worked on island for 3 years, and visited the island for 30, I think I know a thing or two about the island restaurants and food.
Casual Sushi Block Island Restaurants: Sushi Bob at the Beachead
Sushi Bob at the Beachead is a longstanding Sunday night tradition in our Block Island restaurant culture. It’s not a trip to the island without something (sometimes anything, Bob does sell out fast some nights) from Sushi Bob.
Fresh sushi with big portions meets a creative twist from Bob — you can’t go wrong with what you’re ordering and will be supporting island locals in the process.
Favorite Sandwiches on Block Island at Three Sisters
Three Sisters is the perfect beach-trip sandwich shop. Snag a Twisted Sister or a salad for the beach, and head out to the perfect hidden spot on Block Island.
If you’re coming out for an elopement or a weekend with your friends before the big wedding day, snagging sandwiches for the group at Three Sisters before a beach hang is a perfect way to feed a large group. Just always call ahead for larger orders.
Persephone’s for Block Island coffee
I live through the fuel that is Persephone’s coffee. Block Island has had a coffee shop in this location as long as I’ve been alive, and Persephone’s twist on it couldn’t have been more welcomed. Sustainability, environment and health as priorities, Persephone opened the shop a few years ago and it has been pure success since.
The line is always out the door — so again, if you have a larger order, call ahead or order online. If you’re looking for a quiet place to retreat and work, this is a perfect spot too.
I’m all about the sushi, so yes, the Oar has sushi and it’s a solid spot if you’re craving sushi and Sushi Bob’s isn’t open. That said, it’s also great for large groups, mudslides and harbor views. The perfect spot for a casual rehearsal dinner, going away lunch or welcome dinner, the Oar is located in New Harbor overlooking the Boat Basin.
