Went at 3:30 pm on a Monday recently and the place was real busy. Sat on the outside deck and started with drinks enjoying the beautiful day. Was seated at table #51 and it was the perfect spot. Our server, Sophia, was a sweetheart and told us that "buck a shuck" started at 4:00 pm. For you novices, that's $1.00... More

Had a softie that was outstanding. Corn was delicious, but overpriced. Slaw was bland,not marinated long enough and overpriced. But, the lobster - WOW! And after all that's why I was there.

We found this by chance and loved it equally as much each time we returned. The food is fresh and delicious, the outdoor bar so fun and the setting amazing.

While a bit pricey (but what do you expect for an oyster bar) this restaurant has it all: Location (literally on an oyster bed), selection (choices included three different types of raw oysters and cooked options such as Rockefeller and with Bourbon sauce), and quality. Don’t sleep on the other items on the menu however… the calamari appetizer is fantastic!

Every time I visit my friend in RI we make our pilgrimage to the Matunuck Oyster Bar for a serving of Oysters Rockefeller, a basket of their very flavorful rolls, and a glass of Prosecco for lunch. I have had dishes called by the name Oysters Rockefeller all over the US but nothing as fine as this version. It may... More
