It was a dark and rainy night in January. We could hear the pounding of the surf off Point Judith as we entered Matunuck Oyster Bar, setting the perfect atmosphere for our experience. Diners were seated under the plastic tent outside, comfortably warmed and lighted, the tent sides billowing and snapping under a gusty wind. It was the night of... More

We have been here so many times over the last couple of years, but loved coming here several times in late December/early January. No crowds, great views and we love the food. The oysters, calamari, lobster roll and beet/goat cheese salad are so delicious, I could eat these dishes several times a week! Try to get here in the winter... More

This is always on our list when we are back in RI visiting family. The food is exceptional! In the summer there will be a wait.. But it is well worth it. You can still outside and have a few drinks while you wait for your table to become available. We just went recently for our New Years Eve Dinner,... More

I came for the oysters. When we arrived the oyster bar was very crowded so we just asked for a table. It was early for dinner but it was already busy. I enjoyed a lobster roll and some RI style clam chowder. It was so good I didn't have room for oysters!

Went there before New Years, the upstairs was not yet open, but with the downstairs renovations done and the expanded kitchen in full swing, the menu has expanded to include so any more oyster dishes. Love how they added to the salad menu, so you can top a salad off with many things, including fried oysters! Yum! The kitchen staff... More

My wife and I were on a day trip to the Rhode Island shore, trying to forget about winter for a while, when we asked a local where to eat. Her name was Honey and her dogs name was Noah so we knew we could trust her (lol). Anyway, she told us to go to the Matunuck Oyster Bar. It's... More

Sat outside in heated tent area, great view of the cove. Oyster sampler, one dozen for 3 varieties, all local, $22.00. Best time of year for oysters on the half shell - cold water. Lobster roll overflowing with lobster meat, very little filler / mayo. Never had a better one. Nice atmosphere. Very popular so may have to wait for... More

You know a place is popular when you have to wait in a line of cars to park, then wait in a line to put your name in for a table! My fiancé and I went at the peak of summer, and waited for an outdoor table for about 1.5 hours at the bar. It was nice to see the... More

Had Christmas Eve lunch there with the family. Sat outside in the heated "tent" area and we were very comfortable. Everything we ordered was first rate and the service was excellent. Highly recommend the Matunuck Oyster Bar!

If my family and I are in this area, we have to stop here. This place never lets us down. The food and the service is outstanding. I'm sorry I forgot the waiter's name but thank you for the great service. We always look forward to going there and trying something new on the menu. The one thing we order... More
