Dining Menu

In the warm days of summer, the ocean beckons us.  There is a certain allure to dining on the water especially in New England with such a limited time each year to sit outside on the water to drink, dine and enjoy.  

The dining menu at Ballard’s on Block Island is land-to-sea perfection and the breathtaking view doesn’t get any better than the one at Ballard’s oceanfront restaurant! 

Think New England lobster prepared 13 ways, local fish from the surrounding waters of Block Island, luscious flame-grilled steaks, chilled shellfish, the best burgers you’ve ever eaten with a side of amazing fries or enormous onion rings, steamers, stuffies, salads, sandwiches and more! 

Ballards-DiningLobster

Dine inside our restaurant, enjoy the view of the Atlantic while dining outside on our covered oceanfront deck or grab a beach chair and let our staff deliver your food right to your beach chair with ocean waves crashing on your feet.

Ballard’s is not your typical oceanfront dining….we offer phenomenal food, perfect service, and an amazing oceanfront view.
