Dead Eyes is back

Very good food and reasonable. This place is off and on a good stop and it is now good. The sword fish was excellent as were the crab cakes. The drinks were generous.

I'll admit we were a little put off by the name of this place and hesitant to venture away from our beloved Oar for a sunset dinner, but we were thrilled and will definitely return! Waitress was excellent and food WAY exceeded our expectations! The calamari was amazing. Be sure to sit out on the deck!

The Lobster Avocado BLT was one of the highlights of our meal...so good, we returned two days later for a repeat performance. The fries that accompany the sandwich are equally superb. The location overlooking New Harbor can't help but remind you that you are on vacation. Dead Eye Dick's staff were very nice and efficient. I wish their T-shirts were... More

I heard so many things about this place. It was just okay for me. We sat outside. There is a good view of the pond, lots of boats, etc. I had the calimari which was good, but I did not like my dinner which was the tuna.

For our last night on Block Island we booked a table at Dead Eye Dicks. The lobster rolls were great and the atmosphere was better. It was the perfect ending to a wonderful trip.

This was not out first time here. We went for lunch. Very minimal wait time for a table outside but under a cover. It was nice to feel like we were outside but out of the direct sun. The view of New Harbor is very relaxing. Service was good and friendly, we never felt rushed. Had a few appetizers then... More

To long a wait to get into the OAR so we decided to give DED a try. We got right in. Main dining room was empty on a busy Friday night. That's because you want to eat on the deck that has a beautiful view of the harbor and the boats. It was a nice evening to sit outside and... More

Dead Eye Dick's has a good location but only so so food and service. And, of course, this being Block Island is overpriced. There are definitely better restaurants on the island.
