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.

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.

There was a bit of a wait but we went to the outdoor fire pits and were able to order a cocktail and appetizer. I'm now very happy for the wait as the setting can't be beat and we loved talking with the other people...More
