SIZZLIN' SUMMER SPOTS: DEAD EYE DICK'S ON BLOCK ISLAND

Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer, which means it's time for Eat Up New England to kick up another season of Sizzlin' Summer Spots! These are restaurants near the beach where you can kick back, have a drink or two and relax the night away. This year, let's start off on Block Island, with a wonderful place called Dead Eye Dick's.

This seafood hot spot is right on the ocean in New Harbor. There's tons of seating inside and on their covered back porch, but it's not too early to grab a spot outside on their deck. I enjoyed lunch here on Memorial Day and it was warm enough to sit outside.

First up, drinks. Dead Eye Dick's has a full bar offering beer and cocktails. My girlfriend and I enjoyed the "Sun-Kissed Lemonade" with Stoli strawberry. It was the perfect beach drink. For lunch, I loved their hot lobster roll with big pieces of lobster meat. It's served with just enough hot butter for dunking. You can get fries, cheese fries or a salad for a side. We loved the cheesy fries made with Vermont cheddar. There are also plenty of vegetarian options here including a veggie ciabatta sandwich. Eating all of this delicious food outside by the ocean with cool summer breezes was just perfect.

Other lunch options include a swordfish reuben, fish tacos, po' boys and a lobster avocado BLT. You can start off your meal with Rhode Island or New England clam chowder or lobster bisque. Other apps include steamed mussels, crab cakes, salt & pepper calamari and a trio of wings. They also have raw bar options. Dead Eye Dick's is also open for dinner. Their dinner menu looks unbelievable. Dinners include salmon, shrimp & grits, New England lobster bake and surf & turf.  There's a lobster truffle fettuccine on their dinner menu that I'm dying to try the next time. Dead Eye Dick's is the perfect Sizzlin Summer Spot! We'll be back....
