Came twice during my week stay in Narragansett based on recommendations. The seafood was the best I ever had- no joke. And the chowder, omg. To die for. Cannot wait to go back again. They have a true gem here. Parking can be tricky as the lot is small so try to go at off times. Wanted to buy a... More

They have a wide variety of oyster offerings of course, both cooked and raw. I enjoyed the oyster po'boy. It the fried oysters were so delectable, I think I'd order the entree next time so as to appreciate the oysters... More

Main course for him was Scallops and I had Shrimp, Watermelon and Feta Salad. The salad was superb, all made with local ingredients. I can NOT say enough about... More

We are locals and often turned off by the crowds at this place but the food is always excellent. Nice kids menu. Best lobster roll around and served with a beautiful side salad with local greens. This place is a gold mine because they care about what they are presenting.

We have had lunch and dinner here and the seafood is very fresh and delicious. It is very busy and noisy. Dinner has long wait times. We prefer going there for lunch when it is less busy and there is a shorter wait time. Well worth the wait. The food is high quality.

My family owns a cottage down at the end of East Matunuck Beach, and we've gone to the Oyster Bar at least once every year since it opened. The food is excellent, and the waitstaff are very capable. The fresh bread before the meal is delicious. We always order the kalamari appetizer and the fried jalapeños that come with it... More

Whenever I am vacationing near by, I go to the Matunuck Oyster bar every chance I get. The farmed oysters are wonderful and the other food never disappoints. On recent occasions I had a lobster salad sald. Same delicious (special) lobster salad as in the lobster roll, minus the carbs and plus bacon and avacado and other delicious fresh veggies.... More
