Ignore my earlier review re this restaurant if it's posted - this is the right one! Our last day on Block Island. We got the ferry time wrong so to fill our time whilst waiting for the next boat we headed over to Ballard's. A very busy place with lots happening, including a live band, so our wait time wasn't painful at all! Thank you 215 Jevan M for good service.

Holy wow!!! We were at Ballard's on Sept 21 for a wedding. Everything was phenomenal! I've worked in the hospitality industry for many years, being the behind the scenes "team" to ensure the 'stars' as well as all of their guests perceived the event as perfection and.... Ballards stepped it up 100 notches! Brilliant, unique venue. Professional yet entertaining staff when approached.
If I ever considered getting married again -- lol -- I'd book Ballards!! Thank you all!
