If you have keen taste for oysters you must try these Potter Pond, Matunuck, Westerly all have very distinct flavors that are delicious on the half shell, fried, Rockefeller or even in the stew. Fun loving atmosphere with plenty of beer on tap. The staff is very attentive and food is consistent every visit. Scallops are sweet and fresh cooked... More

If you love oysters…you MUST go to Matunuck's Oyster Bar. Service and food are impeccable. Perry, the owner, makes it a point to visit each and every table to see if you were satisfied…if not, he WILL make it right. They harvest their own oysters. The setting is great, right on the water. It is sooo popular that there is... More

What a great restaurant located in Rhode Island. The food was excellent! We expected a slow night due to time of year but oh no... Not this restaurant. The word is out and they were busy. Fun upbeat atmosphere

Perry Rasso has established a wonderful, unique, funky vibe kind of place in the middle of nowehere. Beautiful view over a tranquil pond. Folks flock from hours away, embrace the multi-hour waits, and slurp down those Rhody oysters which are magical. Never had better oysters Rockefeller, even in NOLA. You have to be ready to wait in the summer, park... More

We loved the hominess, jovial atmosphere. Most of all, the FOOD was excellent!! Try the oysters from their local beds, lobster, bourbon oysters, Rhode Island clam (quahog) chowder, littlenecks, and extra special is the frozen key lime pop!! We will be back over and over.

Friends brought me here for a just before sunset dinner, and I thought it was a great experience. We had to wait for a table, but that was part of the fun, having a drink and chatting with fellow diners. There's a stylish crowd that reminded me of the Hamptons without the pretentiousness. Seafood was fantastic, service a bit slow.... More

What an awesome place! The food, atmosphere and service are second to none. We had a drink at the bar and watched while several orders of oysters were shucked. The place was packed but the service was phenominal. We had baked stuffed lobster and Alaskan King Crab legs and they were the best meals we ever had. GO HERE!!!!

This restaurant is by far the best oyster bar you will ever visit. Besides their own farm raised oysters, you will find numerous others to tempt your palate. Besides oysters they also offer various other seafood items which are also outstanding. Because the food is so great and reasonable, expect to experience a wait - BUT - it is well... More

While I am not an oyster lover, the people in my family that I go here with go gaga over the oysters on the half shell. There is a selection of different oysters according to where they are grown and each growing area gives them a slightly different flavor. I have always had a fresh, well prepared seafood meal here.... More
