Very consistent

We have been going to the Oar for 20+ years back when it was The Oar House! And to this day, the food is always delish and the servers have gotten even better over the years! Love summer and drinks down at the Oar!

Being gluten free this is a great place for me to eat and its local which makes it even better. Wonderful in the summer. You can sit outside on the water and enjoy the sun. The food is delicious. The reason I gave the service a 4 instead of a 5 is because many of the staff members are not... More

Fresh fish, great menu options and prime beef. What else could you ask for. The service was friendly and prompt. They have a great wine list to top it all off. My steak was cooked perfectly and my Tuna Tataki was excellent. The wife's lobsetr dumplings were awesome and her salad was delicious. The place also has great waterfront dining... More

The food was delicious and plentiful - the atmosphere was beautiful as it had just been decorated for the Christmas holiday. We were greeted warmly and also bid a goodnight by staff and owner. My only complaint is that service was very slow, I think they may have been understaffed. With that exception if you're not in a rush I... More

We went to this restaurant for restaurant week. The menu was exciting. Definitely delicious and interesting, but very little food. The corn chowder was rich and creamy, but the pumpkin ravioli appetizer had 2 raviolis... not horrible for an appetizer, but the scallop dinner had 3 scallops! They were wonderfully prepared but skimpy portions. Same for desserts.. Not sure if... More

The restaurant is situated on the East Side of the river Patchogue, just off Mulford Street and West Avenue on Long Island. There is a car park on site. The outside decking is directly onto the river where the boats are moored: it is a great location in the summer months to dine outside. The food is good quality, generous... More

Returned again and always pleased. Food, ambiance, hostess, waitress and the busboys as well. Not often that the entire team at a restaurant makes you feel at home. Saw the comment about the hostess and can only conclude this is someone in love with their own sense of worth. Hostesses have always been polite and welcoming and most importantly, told... More

Just finished a miserable experience at the Oar. If you plan on going here understand that they don't take reservations but the hostesses and managers do accept bribes. Yes your half hour wait will be two hours unless you take care of the hostess. Your name will be on a list and when they take care of their freinds and... More

A unique and very comfortable place to relax on the canal. I live on the North Shore but love to come here. I feel like I'm on vacation! Love the old seaside feel and the bar. Ate outside twice, you do need a good day. Great club sandwich and excellent sliced tuna. Sangria! Friendly service. Want to go every week!... More
