Visited the restaurant early evening. I ordered the lobster roll which was nice but served on a cardboard try like in fast food restaurants which was a little disappointing. The restaurant had a ladies night on with live music. We felt rushed, as I think they wanted us gone so the restaurant could get on with its ladies night.

The New Beachhead Restaurant is excellent! The food is outstanding! Try the eggplant fries! Addictive! :-) Try it, you won't be sorry.

My husband and I went to BH for Happy Hour last Thursday evening. My husband went inside to tell someone we would like to sit outside. He waited in the bar area and walked to the dining area and no one acknowledged him. I went inside and we sat at a table in the bar area and were still not... More

This place was amazing. We came in for drinks and appetizers and were not disappointed! The crab cakes were AMAZING!! The calamari was great too! We loved the surprise shrimp! And the wings, they had the right amount of heat! We're glad we found this gem!

because we had a wonderful lunch with good service sitting with our granddaughter in a very comfortable booth with a view of the inlet and sound. My husband's Beachhead burger was served hot, prepared as ordered, with a pile of sweet potato fries. My granddaughter's kids menu chicken tenders and fries was such a large portion I would not have... More

First visit! So many great dishes to pick from we had trouble deciding! We settled on Stuffed Clams and Shrimp Cocktail for apps. Burger, Seafood Platter, Zuppa De Pesce and Shrimp Carbonara. One dish just as good as the other! Dominic did a great job, thank you!! We'll be back!

We went to the NEW Beachhead restaurant with great expectations this past Saturday. We had drinks on the upstairs balcony with Christin who was wonderful!! That's where the wonderful ended. We were seated downstairs where there was a large party also seated. Waitress took awhile to come over but was pleasant. We ordered a dozen oysters and fried calamari. Well... More

After a long day at work, I met my wife at the beach head for a beer and some apps. We ordered the mussels which were amazing. The crostini had spice to it and I could have had the broth alone as a soup...so great! We also had a ceasar Salad which was awesome and fish tacos that were soooooo... More
