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

Our waitress wasn't wearing a bra & was difficult 2 order w/ her hanging out. She paid no attention 2 our needs. I had a green tea drink included peach schnapps & whiskey. It was the worst drink I ever had. My husband said his signature drink was awful as well.

Great evening! Great value! Beautiful sunset! We were warmly welcomed by Becky, hilariously served by Ian, the surfer dude and even treated to a magic show from Rob the bartender. They all made our birthday/anniversary celebration a memorable one! We will definitely come back to the Beachhead.

This restaurant has a true Island feel, the view of the ocean is second to none, the service is charming and personal. I highly recommend the seafood nachos, yum!

We went for the $1 Oysters during Taste of Block Island. Most of my party swore they hated oysters but once they tried Beachead's super fresh batch, they were hooked! Even stayed after the $1 promo was over and paid full-price. They're that good. Can't say enough about the amazingly friendly and knowledgeable staff. The owner herself took a picture... More
