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

Fried oysters for hubby and beet and goat cheese salad for me. Awesome! Lunch here whenever we're in RI. Beautiful view and wonderful service. Always look forward to the beaches and our favorite lunch venue.

People travel far and wide to eat at MOB and it's no surprise why. The food is fresh out of the garden/pond, the ambiance is casual yet sophisticated and the view is spectacular!

Finally got to enjoy this place without the long lines of the summer visitors. While a bit cool, it was still enjoyable view. I enjoyed the Matunuck oysters (sweet) while my wife had the delicious oyster stew. She had the out-of-sight lobster roll, and I tried a menu item (smoked salmon). Quite different but enjoyable. (Of course, get the Dr... More

After several unsuccessful attempts to dine here, we finally made it. This place is busy (that's why the previous attempts were a no-go). If you are in that category, or think it's too far away, don't give up. You won't be disappointed. So much to try, we could return weekly for months and not exhaust the menu.

Stopped in on a sunny September day and sat outside. Pretty views. The parking is a bit of a production but I'm glad that they have valet parking. We enjoyed the chowders ..white and clear and the calamari appetizer. FUll belly clams were okay but lacked the crispy crunch that makes them great. The goat cheese salad was very good.... More
