To celebrate our anniversary, we vacationed on Block Island. On the actual day of our anniversary, we chose Dead Eye Dick's for our dinner celebration. Its overall high rating and positive reviews on TripAdvisor, online menu and website, and proximity to our accommodations helped us decide. We couldn't have made a better choice. Indoor and outdoor seating is available overlooking... More

I had dinner on the patio, which overlooks the harbor, on a slow night. Serene ambience and attentive service. The RI clam chowder was chock full of tender clams in a tasty broth. The appetizer I ordered to go along with it was good but skimpy for the price. Three scallops seared and artfully presented but at $15 Or $5... More

Had dinner inside. The noise level was very loud. Service mediocre but food good. Did not enjoy dinner, hi prices, because of the noise and bad service.

We have been here before and enjoyed the view and food so we decided to come one late afternoon for some happy hour drinks and apps. The hostess was a bit sour about providing us with a table outside for apps and drinks. We ordered oysters and some hot appetizers and a round of martinis. We were served our hot... More

Dead Eye Dick's was perfect for a family meal. My husband had all sorts of seafood and oysters and loved every bite. My lobster roll was delicious and the kids enjoyed their pasta and shrimp. The atmosphere is great - quiet, on the water, very peaceful.

My husband and I had dinner at this restaurant. We went during off peak hours, so table availability was easy. I have some dietary restrictions but didn't have any problem finding items on the menu, like gluten and dairy free, to choose from. I ordered a salad with grilled shrimp, which I enjoyed eating. The dressing was too sweet for... More

Our party of two stopped by for a midweek dinner and immediately noted it was a more lay back, less hectic atmosphere than on weekends at this Island favorite. We were seated outside on the porch, offering great views and gentle breezes. We shared an appetizer of fried oysters which were melt in your mouth excellent, although we felt the... More

Best tomatoes I have ever had, and I grew up in New Jersey. Hanger steak cooked perfectly to order and friendly and professial staff. A surprisingly great place walking distance from our boat slip.
