First visit in about 17 years. Have to say that food was as delicious as my last visit. Service much less so. Waitress seemed annoyed and when it was time for us to leave, there was an extra charge for a cocktail we did not order. We paid for the bill, minus the right dollar charge not ours and a... More

We stopped in for a drink and thought we could buy a tshirt. But the merchandise selection was very limited. The drink selection was neat and some original mixed drinks. When we visited it was 830 pm and we were told we couldn't sit on the deck because it was dinner time and we were only getting drinks. The porch... More

We met friends here for lunch to celebrate a birthday. Sitting out on the deck was delightful, as we watched people paddle boarding in New Harbor. The food was excellent pub fare - burgers, reubens, fish & chips, po' boy, etc. The Narragansett Del's Lemonade Shandy was a refreshing beer that goes well with anything on a hot summer day....

We sat inside because we were a large party. Very authentic "beachy" restaurant. The food was excellent and the service (Sarah) was outstanding. The New England chowder was the best I've had. The fried calamari app was enough for my entree. It's at New Harbor and we stayed at Payne's Harbor View Inn just up the hill so we walked.

I had the shrimp salad, it was great. Along with a Hendricks cucumber special cocktail which is awesome. My husband has the ahi tuna and chicken wings which he really enjoyed. Our waitress arrived with two glasses of ice water to give us. It was so hot that day, she earned her tip right then and there! She said, "yes,... More

Michael was a wonderful waiter. Very attentive! The food was delicious(lobster roll, harbor platter, salad with shrimp and pork sandwich). Everything was hot and yummy! I would eat here again. Totally worth the trip!

We had a great late evening dinner (8:45-10:00), and simple 'entrees'. The entrees consisted of the basic iceberg lettuce, NE clam chowder, coupled with the grilled shrimp and fried oyster appetizers. Very light eating, but perfect for a late affair on a foggy night. Coupled it with a bottle of pinot grigio, and we were set. Service was great and... More

I can't say I had the best seafood or best drink from Dead Eye Dick's. we had dinner and I thought it was acceptable, I have had Better seafood platter at other places. However, thumbs up for our waitress! She was awesome!!

If I was only going for Lobster Roll this restaurant would get 5 stars. I visited as a couple, my boyfriend had the NE Clam Chowder and cold Lobster Roll. He loved it and is somewhat a conasour of Clam Chowder and Lobster Rolls. I ordered the fish tacos and was highly dissapointed, there wasn't much taste other than the... More

Pedaled up and found two seats at the bar. Placed an order when waitress thoughtfully pointed out the Happy Hour Menu saving us a bundle on sushi! Fish was fresh, beer was chilled - disappointed to discover they were out of oysters but given the view - great find after a day spent pedaling the island.
