The Beachead is a long time Block Island institution! Fabulous straight-forward food, stunning water views from both inside and out. Efficient, friendly staff and top notch bartenders- particularly the indomitable Hanna! $1 Buck-a-shuck oysters are not to be missed! Can’t say enough positive things about...More

Great Bar/Pub/ Restaurant. Food is good and fresh. All of the Staff are Super Friendly. Location is easy and it’s in the general vicinity of all the other hot spots. We come here often. Worth the wait if there is one.

Had a great meal!! I had Sirloin in a rich delish gravy and my husband had lobster. We both very much enjoyed our meals. Beautiful view of the beach across the street. We will be returning!

Across the street from the beach, this restaurant offers outdoor seating, along with covered outdoor tables. We happened upon it on a rainy day so it was packed and we gladly took a table inside. Server was friendly and very helpful with our selections and...More

Hanna makes the best mudslides on Block Island, and is always a friendly face. In addition, the food is extraordinary. Especially Good is the chili and the clam strips. Both Kelsey and Kelsea provide wonderful service. In addition to being extremely attentive, both provide great...More

This looks like the absolute version of a beachside restaurant, but the food was just ok. A chicken sandwich was leathery, a lobster roll, while well-filled, was not quite as fresh as expected, and green salads were tough and carelessly made, with some wilted greens....More
