Heard great things about Dead Eye's so we decided to give it a shot. Sure glad we did, we had the Lobster Rolls for lunch and they were "A #1". Highly recommend it, our service was great and the atmosphere was wonderful-ask for a seat outside when you go.

We had a nice lunch here the day we rented a moped and traveled around the whole island back in mid-August. It's a pretty long walk from the main harbor area so we decided that since we had the moped we would eat at some places too far to walk. We were seated out on the nice scenic deck where... More

You must sit out on the deck at this restaurant. The views are beautiful. The food is good especially the burgers. The food is fresh and the service depending on who you get is fantastic.

Food here resembles what a talented home chef envisions his own creations will taste like; yet, let's be honest, the home chef never really accomplishes that. It fits in the wonderful niche of food where you feel like you are getting your money's worth, but you aren't sold down the river by fancy gimmicks to make you feel esteemed or... More

lots of mixed reviews for this place, but we just loved it for lunch. Best of all - the shrimp in the Bloody Mary !!

I'm not a connoisseur of lobster rolls but I do know good food when I taste it. The hot buttered lobster roll was off the charts for me. Sweet, tender, moist lobster claw meat in a butter toasted brioche roll. I would go back just for that. I will be returning shortly to try the cold one. We had the... More

We stopped in to have a drink and appetizer. Complimentary bread was provided while we waited for our steamers. The drinks were good and the view of the marina was great. The server was very friendly and willing to take our picture. Overall a place to add to the list when you visit Block Island.

Title says it all. Food was mostly ordinary. Fish and chips was heavily battered. The portobello mushroom dish was mostly olive tapenade. The latter was the size of a burger on the plate next to a small but tasty grilled mushroom under a stack of grilled vegetables and cheese. It should have been listed as Olive tapenade with a portobello... More

This was our favorite restaurant on Block Island. We had a table outside which overlooked New Harbor and we watched a beautiful sunset. Our two young children were able to order off a kids' menu though my seven year old ordered the Hanger steak off the regular menu which was very good. My husband had the surf and turf -... More

Don't let the name fool you. This is the perfect place for a wedding. My aunt goes to 10 weddings a year, and she said this is her new gold standard for weddings. This definitely won't be a fine dining wedding, but it is a beautiful location with spectacular views, wonderful staff, and the BEST food. We had about 140... More
