In a week of dining, my best meal was at Dead Eye Dick's. The Shrimp and Grits was inventive and very appealing. However, the boozy, boisterous crowd on a Saturday night severely detracted from the experience. Dick's needs to decide whether it is a fine restaurant or a rip-roaring beer joint.

Dead Eye Dick's overlooks New Harbor with a great view. The outdoor seating is comfortable and the food and drink is very good. We went early and the place was not crowded. The price was also reasonable. We would dine there again.

We stopped on our bike ride for lunch and were not disappointed. The staff is very friendly and the view is relaxing. We had the hot and cold lobster roll which were DELICIOUS! You definitely get a good share of lobster chunks in each.

We had a wonderful lunch here at a table overlooking the harbor. My husband had Caesar salad and I had the lobster roll which was heaped with lobster. One of the biggest and best lobster rolls I've ever had! If you're in the New Harbor area, definitely stop at Dead Eye Dick's!

Lots of good restaurants on BI, but this one offered the best meal for the price, in an attractive setting with friendly staff. Parents, teens and pre-teens all satisfied. Afterwards, enjoyed walking down among all the yachts in New Harbor -- a fun, different vibe from the scene in Old Harbor.

My husband and I went to Dead Eye Dick’s for dinner. I ordered the “surf and turf” and my husband ordered the lobster bake. Traditionally, surf and turf is a filet and baked, stuffed shrimp or lobster. Here, it was grilled shrimp and they were the same size as the shrimp cocktail. Only one was a bit larger, they must...

Great atmosphere and food. Just a short bike ride from the village great views and food they open at five so if you are catching the last ferry back get there close to 5 so you can relax and enjoy the setting and food.

The food was OK, and the service was OK, but I expected a lot more. Dead Eye Dick's was fine, but not "special".
