The National Hotel is the flagship victorian hotel on Block Island,  located in the center of downtown in Old Harbor across from the ferry landing and New England’s best beaches. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this Block Island landmark offers breath-taking ocean views from our iconic front porch and restaurant, the Tap and Grille—a favorite gathering spot for locals and visitors.
Truly a unique New England experience!
With breathtaking views overlooking the Block Island Sound, The Big  Porch, is the best spot on the island to enjoy lunch, dinner, a light snack or an evening cocktail - there's even an outside bar.
Located on our scenic porch overlooking the Old Harbor, the Tap & Grille specializes in fresh seafood and thick, juicy steaks.  The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.  We have live entertainment every weekend throughout the summer.
