I went on Sunday night with 8 others and it was solid! Great views, excellent service and good food. The lobster mac and cheese was to die for. I will definitley be back next summer.

Starting with the positives: good service, awesome location where you can park easily and look at the beach, nice fire out, good dark and stormys. Food was fine but when we return next year it will be for drinks only. Got a salad, chicken focaccia, and white fish meal.

This is the second time my friends and I have eaten at Beachhead, and we will go back next summer. Great drinks, good food & service, and a nice walk from the ferry.

Our family came here for lunch. Seated right before us was a group of 12 people and another group of 16. We realized we would be waiting a LONG time for service and food. But as soon as we were seated, our waitress was there, food was ordered and then quickly served. The seafood nachos and calamari were hot and... More

Best spot on the island for good food with an incredible view - the new menu and outside deck have made it even better than I remembered!

We had heard that the Beachhead had excellent clam strips. I am not a fan of strips, but prefer whole belly but the group went for lunch to give them a try. I can tell you that we were all impressed by them. The clamstrips were tender and the batter was very light. Very good sized portion. Across the road... More

Not only was I greeted by welcoming service, I was very impressed with the staff. Within minutes of sitting down I had water on the table and my drink was ordered, a mudslide obviously. My food came out in the perfect amount of time and the staff was very attentive. MUST try to classic New England clam chowder and the... More

Apparently this restaurant is under new ownership and has stepped it up a notch. The food is incredible. Highly recommend the clams casino, swordfish, and cod. One of the best meals we've ever had on the island! The bartender has a generous poor and I always appreciate that. :) The bonus is the HOT servers. Someone across from us was... More

We have come here for years, but I never ordered a lobster roll. We had just arrived and generally like this cute place, but I ordered the lobster roll & splurged! It was just awful. A thick heavy brioche (as explained) hot dog roll with lobster. The ratio of bread to lobster was out of proportion. It was a gluey... More
