We enjoy the Matunuck Oyster Bar and we were excited to try the Greenwich Bay Oyster Bar. With High Anticipation we went one day and the service was excellent. The food however was just average and WAY OVERPRICED. I ordered a 2 pound lobster with the stuffing that included shrimp and scallops. The menu said "Market Price" for the lobster... More

We really enjoyed our night out at Greenwich Bay Oyster Bar, which was recommended by our innkeeper. It is a small venue which made it feel more intimate. The patrons were energized but not loud. The staff was welcoming. Our waitress, Alexis, seemed new but was very attentive and friendly. Our crab-cakes and haddock were superb. Done just right. Will... More

Excellent value for oysters at this place their famous "buck a chuck" with a glass of your favorite wine or just plain Guiness are best deal around. Always use professional advise from John "The oyster man"!

If there is a snow storm, the roads are slick and it's rush hour. Ask for the Yuengling draft. They just started offering it. Then get their scallops, asparagus and garlic infused mashed potatoes. Hopefully,Melissa will be your server. She was great company as I sat at the bar waiting for traffic to break. I can't say I've tasted better... More

The entire menu is excellent, but the added bonus is buck-a-shuck oysters in the early part of the evening. My wife and I have eaten here several times. Last week, the buck-a-shuck featured Blue Point oysters which were fabulous.

For starters, the raw bar is the best in the area. The service is attentive and all the regular menu items that I have tried have been well prepared and presented, as well as tasty. They have great specials. The interior is cozy and a great place to meet friends in a casual setting yet is perfectly suited for business... More

I had dinner last night here and cannot wait to return! This is a gem of a spot - impeccable service, great wine list. Warm and cozy atmosphere. We started with shrimp cocktail that was colossal in size, fresh and flavorful. The clams casino were prepared traditionally and were delish. The highlight was the 2 pound butter poached lobster, served... More
