Never disappointed.

The Oar is a reliable restaurant with great outdoor seating in the summer and cozy indoor seating in the winter. Service is always good. The change in menu a few years back really improved the place. But, that sizzling steak with all the smoke - what is up with that!?

The food was excellent. Service was very good and attentive. There were only a few guests at the restaurant the night we were there. Its a little difficult in the dark to tell where the entrance is, but it was worth the drive. I would go back again.

Oar House, that's what it used to be called. That was a pretty awesome name! We've been there several times. The food, service, atmosphere have always been good. We will go back. By the way, it's on the water.

The Oar is located on the Patchogue River with boat dockage available for summer dinner visits by boat. Always decorated beautifully for every holiday. Although this placed is packed all summer long, a winter visit is just as enjoyable. Spent last Valentines Day there which turned out to be a snow storm night! We thoroughly enjoyed every item we ordered,... More

We were looking for a lunch spot in Patchogue and stumbled across this little gem. When we first drove up, it was a little confusing, as you don't realize the restaurant is behind another building. But after finding the entrance, and walking in the restaurant, we got a delightful surprise. Charming atmosphere, perfectly decorated and right on the water. The... More

The Oar is a wonderful restaurant with great outdoor patio right on the on the water in the summer and an attractive indoor restaurant for all seasons. They serve my favorite lobster roll - and I've tried many. In fact I find it difficult to order anything else when I go. The house Oar Fries are yummy too. The Oar... More

Had dinner here twice, both times were great. Though we stuck to seafood both times so I can't comment on the meats! Service was excellent.

In a town that has reinvented itself with many upscale, trendy, NYC type of restaurants, this hidden away gem, on the canal has seafood in a comfortable setting. Appetizers, oysters with assorted toppings, and a jumbo shrimp cocktail started the meal. Terrific French onion soup and a seasonal pumpkin soup followed. House salad with a wonderful secret dressing prepared us... More
