As good as any breakfast in the world. Perfect. Cute setting and nice people. There are more great classic posters and pictures of aircraft than you would believe. Block Island is great and this restaurant is the best.

We had Janelle as a waitress a few days ago and she was the worst waitress my wife and I have ever had. She was rude, didn't offer refills, through the check at us, didn't ask if we enjoyed our food, and was downright offensive....More

Our 7th time on the island, but first visit to Bethany's. Locals told us to give it a try. Cozy place with home cooked diner food, friendly service, lots of yesteryear airplane memorabilia and a Harrison Ford story!

Iconic breakfast dinner at the local airport on Block island. It's less than a mile walk from the Boat Basin. If you've come by boat, leave you dinghy at the Boat Basin, head past the Oar and turn right on the road; it's well worth...More

Very friendly service. Nice breakfast selection. Also open for lunch. Clam chowder good, so is grilled cheese. Good coffee. Watch the planes come and go.

We always stop at Bethany's before we catch the ferry home. Love the atmosphere, the view of the airport, the service and the food. A lot of throw back memorabilia and old Block Island photos. The menu is great. The food is terrific.

The breakfast fare here is the average stuff. It's the little island airport charm of it all. The staff has been there forever and the are BI natives through and through - just like most of the customers. It can get crowded. I love the...More
