The Oar is one of our favorite restaurants on the island. The view is fantastic, you literally can watch the world go by you and leave all of your mainland worries behind. The food is quite good and the management very good.
The only reason I don't vote it as "excellent" is the service. A couple of the wait staff are amazing and have been there for many years - these are the folks you want to find. However, the Oar depends on summer help which are mostly college kids and frankly many of them aren't very good. The Oar has begun serving a limited menu on the lawn, however we have found that there is never adequate servers out there to meet the demand.
Eat on the porch, the wait is worth it. The sushi is very, very good.
