We were here for lunch and it was delicious. The staff was attentive, knowledgeable about their menu. Everything was fresh, and the view was great!

This review is tough to write. Some very nice things to report, and something not so nice to report. Let's start with the bad news. The scallop dinner was rather bland. Problem is, my wife and I both ordered it, so I have no idea how to rate the other meals the Beachead offers. A sample size of n=1 is not exactly fair to the restaurant. Given the positive reviews of the food in other reviews, my advice is avoid the scallops, unless they change the recipe. Okay, on to the good news! The location is wonderful, overlooking Crescent Beach. One can smell and hear the ocean which is across the road. Small sand dunes and beach shrubs surround the restaurant. Besides the restaurant at the Surf Hotel, no other hotel on Block Island gives you the sense of being close to the ocean like the Beachead! It takes about ten minutes to walk there from the harbor front, so you get the opportunity to build up your appetite before your meal and the opportunity to walk off a large meal afterwards. Outdoor seating includes open air seating (with an open fire pit--very nice) and porch seating. The inside is very nice as well. The other feature that earns my recommendation is the service. It is quick and pleasant. My wife, who really disliked the scallops, actually complained to our waitress about the dish. Without saying what the restaurant did, we were quite satisfied with the response. Great service, great location--definitely check out the Beachead Restaurant.

This is one of our favorite places on Block Island. Their food is always good and they have a nice variety Everything on Block Island is expensive, so this is about the same price as other places. We had the lobster bisque on our last visit and it was wonderful, They are very anxious to please - we saw and appetizer that looked appealing and they happily made it into a luncheon meal for use..

We had dinner here on Friday night. The Thai calamari is excellent. My husband loved the swordfish and the fried clams with fries was very good. Good margaritas and beer selection. Nice view.

Enjoyed a seafood lunch. Noisy crowd so be prepared for this. Had clam strips, mussels, a cider... Good place just out of town if you are hungry for lunch.
