I think I enjoyed the view from the decking & the actual atmosphere more than my food which was fine, nothing too special. Had the burger, French fries were not the best. No complaints re service. Good venue for friends for drinks & snacks.

Outdoor dining overlooking the water, spectacular at sunset. We chose Dead Eye for the seafood but couldn't resist trying the quirky Dead Eye burger, topped with fried oysters. Most incredible burger I have ever had! Great value, great service!

Dead Eye Dicks! Yummy lobster salad, decent french fries, great view - super staff. And we wandered back over saturday night and caught a great jazz trio. Same waitress and hostess working doubles - and super sweet.

It's one of those places that seems to thrive because it's "the place to go" and because of it's location in New Harbor. We had a reservation for outside but were told it would be another 45 minutes so we sat inside. No real view...More

Bad clam chowder, "medium rare" burger a hockey puck and non existent waitress. You do the math. The Oar 5x better.

We have been here everytime we have visited Block Island. The views are outstanding and the food is awesome. Service is good and even if you have to wait they have a wonderful spot to wait with great views. Awesome place to watch the sunset.

After reading glowing reviews and hearing from several folks that it was a place we shouldn't miss, we were very disappointed. 4 of our group ordered steak and requests ranged from "black & blue" to medium. All complained the steak was too tough to eat....More
