Food too greasy. Service slow. Entertainment is fun. Bar is good. Location is close to the beach. More for bar than food

Went last night for drinks n apps. Sat outside asked bartender for service...twenty minutes later, we left. She never came out and the restaurant was not busy! Sad that a place once so well known n enjoyed is off our list for good.

I believe the "Beach Head" restaurant closed it doors forever. The next place i strongly recommend is Donavans Reef in Branford, Ct They have great food, atmosphere is great, and the staff as well. I hope this helps you.
