Honestly, we didn't try the food. We stopped to grab some drinks before boarding the ferry back to the mainland. The raw bar looks terrific. Had we not just finished lunch, we would have loaded up on some oysters. Try the strawberry daiquiri or the Pina Colada. Both have the proper amount of rum and neither are overly sweet. Too... More

Arrived with a large party, with reservations made ahead of time. We were promptly seated and out servers were fast, friendly and courteous. We ate dinner here and they had our group of 26 plus a wedding rehearsal dinner going on, and there were no delays in our meals due to the other large party! The adults enjoyed local seafood...

Not having been to the Island for a few years - we were unsure as to how and where to host our family party celebrating several birthdays and anniversaries. We were a group of 15 people, and trying to plan it in advance from long distance was challenging. But dealing with Becky (the owner) thru emails and phone calls was... More

Visited block island for the weekend and came here every afternoon! Delicious food in a relaxed environment! Prices were reasonable and the staff was very friendly. We sat outside and there is a great view of the water! Definitely out favorite place to visit!

After a rigorous 2 hour bike ride, my friend and I were looking forward to a hearty lunch, instead we got a free Mother's Day buffet which included an amazing raw bar, crepes made by the head chef, and the best salmon we ever had, which was smoked in house. It was so flavorful and moist, simple sublime! To top... More

This place was buzzing with people this late Oct. saturday. My salmon sandwich was delicious and my husbands fish sandwich was O.K. We sure appreciated the freshly brewed coffee! The service was good even though they were so busy. The B.H. with it's gorgeous view is always fun to visit.

The Beachhead is a great restaurant with an active bar. The food is consistently good to excellent, the beer choices are diverse and the view is terrific. I have been there as a party of two and a party of 30 (reservations needed for large groups). Staff is friendly and attentive.
