My 4th or 5th time at this lovely restaurant did not disappoint. The cucumber oysters were a delectable treat combining the tasty little fried oysters atop a farm-fresh cucumber slice with a dab of remoulade sauce and topped with fresh tiny sprouts... definitely radish sprouts among them. Just a fabulous little appetizer... and doesn't spoil the appetite... Couldn't resist the... More

Matunuck Oyster Bar is a wonderful restaurant to bring friends and family to. The sunset views are amazing year round. Food is always fresh -something on the menu for everyone. From seafood to steaks to pasta. The restaurant is usually very busy, however, valet parking takes the stress out of finding a spot in the rather small parking area. In... More

Arrived at an apparently busy time on a Thursday night in September advised there would be a 20 minute wait and seated in that time frame. GREAT! We were a party of five, sat indoors but comfy. Food was great, but the only negative was the runner who brought us the wrong food and a waitress who was not at... More

What you see is what you get from the atmosphere. Right on the inlet, great sunsets and the patio has been expanded and is happening. The food and drinks and vibe will further surprise. Maybe because I left the East Coast for the Midwest 25 yrs ago, but to enjoy great shellfish is an annual pilgrimage. And Mantunuck Oyster Bar... More

The Oysters are always the very best. The service is always great. The variety on the menu will satisfy everyone. The location is perfect especially to view a beautiful sunset. Outside seating is great during the summer days or early fall with heaters outside. Do not let the crowds scare you away as the food is just the best.

The owner literally farms the oysters from the pond the restaurant overlooks! Talk about "farm to table" dining. Many other local and not-so-local oyster options too. The other menu items are fresh and well prepared, but why eat anything more than oysters? That is why you came in the first place, right???

We frequent the Matunuck Oyster Bar as often as possible, on a sunny day sitting outside is the only way to dine! The oysters are as fresh as you will ever get and the variety is wide. The owner is constantly milling about checking on patrons while bussing tables, this is a hands on operation and what has made it... More

If you love raw oysters, you MUST eat them at Matunuck. The owner literally farms them from the pond the restaurant overlooks! Talk about "farm to table"! Many local and not-so-local options also available. All super fresh. It's an oyster sampler's heaven. BTW, all the other menu items are great too, but why eat anything other than the oysters???

Very disappointed! The fried Oyster Po' Boy which I ordered was tasteless and instead of whole oysters consisted of oyster strips. The French fries were burnt and when we ordered coffee we were told that they ran out. This was the worst meal I ever had.

What is all of the hype about? The food was NOT very good. The server was average. The atmosphere was loud. No screens on the windows so the bees and flies flitted and landed on food, drinks, and customers. Our table was near the restroom, with people lined up. The smells were not inviting. So, as the flies flitted, the... More
