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.

We consider Dead Eyes as old reliable. The drinks are generous and not overpriced. The snapper and the swordfish presentation was good and the fish delicious. Clam chowder loaded with clams. Two of us had the lobster rolls one hot and one cold. Both were very good with generous portions of lobster. It's a busy place as most good Block... More

We have eaten here several times this summer. Inside can be noisy, outside is nice unless you are right next to the speaker. We have had the lobster salad added to a wedge, which come with yummy prosciutto, the steak and frites, fish and chips, burgers. Always good. Waitstaff is adequate, some great, others soso, as happens anywhere.

Dear Eye Dicks is a nice restaurant that is located down the street from the New Harbor Marina. The views from the deck of New Harbor were amazing, especially in the evening/night.

We had a very enjoyable dinner there where everything went perfectly. The seafood was fresh, salads were crisp, and the view was amazing on their patio/deck. If you start feeling that a lot of the restaurants are decor-focused but lack in substance, give Dead Eye Dick's a try. It saved my BI trip.

Walked to restaurant from champlains marina. We had reservation so we were able to be seated indoors immediately. Limited menu for non-seafood eaters. The lobster, salmon and burger were really good. I had a vegetable curry with jasmine rice which I really enjoyed. Our waiter, Mark was a very attentive, energetic & friendly waiter. Great views from the outside back... More

We had dinner here. Waited a bit for a table but not overly long. The atmosphere is relaxed and the view is what you come to Block Island for. We had the lobster bake and lobster linguine both were good. I'd come back.

After a long morning of hiking and riding scooters, this was a nice spot to take a breath, enjoy the scenery and endure in a nice meal. Huge patio deck to accommodate a large amount of people.

We had dinner here after walking over from Champlin's and the Oar. The food was good (calamari and lobster linguini). The atmosphere is fun and front porch has a nice view. We'll be back next year.
