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.

This is the best place to have breakfast on the Block all year round. The staff is so nice and efficient but the food is the best. Never had a bad meal here and it's great fun to watch the planes landing.

Very popular place, service was okay and food was too. Problem was the bathrooms. Both were disgusting and everyone denied it was their responsibility. Doubt I will return.
