We love the oar house. The food is fabulous and plentiful. Our server GianLuca was so sweet, professional and prompt. The live music is just right.

I'm spoiled to live walking distance from the Oar so I have been many times. The drinks, beer and food are always outstanding. Great and friendly staff. In the summer, be prepared to wait a long time on weekends because a lot of people agree with me! But midweek is different and you can get a seat out on the... More

Went here twice. Right on the water. Bar is very friendly so very nice while you're waiting for your table. No reservations or call ahead seating so plan accordingly. A little pricey but the location makes it worthwhile. We had great service. Very experienced waitress. If you like eating on the water, nice place but you'll pay for it too.

Who doesn't want to go to sit at a restaurant on the water on a beautiful summer evening? Very nice experience, food was really good, much better than I expected! Could easily be a tourist trap with food thrown at you, but it certainly is not. Our server Brian handled our rowdy and picky group of 10 with ease, and... More

We decided to try this restaurant and arrived shortly after noon. We were seated right away and our server came quickly. He was very efficient and friendly. We all ordered different meals and each of us very much enjoyed our choices. The house special potatoes with the Montreal Seasoning were particularly good. They seemed to be having some problem running... More

Hello LIBrenda, i read your review Im sorry you didn't have a good experience. I wish you would have told one of the managers your issues or problems. I'm sorry that our food was not up to your standards, but everything is made fresh at the restaurant, the wontons are not from Costco, and I did not receive any other... More

I frequent the Oar often. Their coconut shrimp is soooo good! Also they have a nice selection of wine. It's always upbeat with music and in the summer lots of people. During the day it is kid friendly, but at night not so much. Beautiful water (river) views.

My friends treated me to a lovely birthday dinner at The Oar House yesterday. I've had their steaks and seafood, but was craving a burger. Well, I'm glad the terrific waiter gave us extra napkins, because that was one delicious and juicy burger. It had bacon, cheese and sauteed onions and was honestly one of the best hamburgers I've ever... More
