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

5 of us went on a Friday night. We did have to wait for a table for about 40 minutes. Staff was extremely accommodating and cordial. We had a drink at the bar before dinner while waiting. The atmosphere is beautiful considering it is right on the marina. The food, was just ok considering the expense of it. Way overpriced.... More

So I read the reviews and decided to try it out being it was a beautiful night for a view. Bar outside was just fair but there was a wait for a table. I expected the food to be a lot better as to what I read in the reviews. Both my partner and I had two meals that were... More

We come here because of the views and the atmosphere. You can dock a boat right there and have drinks by water. We usually get some appetizers and just sit and relax. The views are great and the ambience is wonderful. Dress code is Very casual but no bathing suits allowed.

Very good restaurant. Good food, nice waterfront views. Wait staff very good. A bit on the expensive side but you get what you pay for. Well worth the cost.

Well, I chose it, as it is rated #2 in Patchoque, and it has water and marina views. The food is very good, though not superlative. The coconut shrimp were delicious, though the Manhattan clam chowder was a bit salty.The salmon was cooked just right, though my date's chips, (he ordered the fish and chips), were inedible tooth-breakers. The mimosa... More

Average to above average food, pretty good appetizers, excellent drinks menu, but the reason you go here is to chill out. So mellow, so subtley pretty . . . just a nice, nice place to enjoy a meal.

We frequented this dockside place for years. They spent a dollar or two on the front entrance, but neglected to update the standard of food. The prices went up and the chef isn't making any waves or raves. Lobster roll, i ordered the butter poached. Nothing to brag or write home about, plain and poorly served and plated. My oar... More

We went to have some cocktails and apps and got told we would have a 2 hour wait! The inside restaurant was empty and was hungry and would have sat in there then went out to the deck, which is dangerously overcrowded, sorry I was a huge fan for years! It's getting like Montauk, out of control, what a shame!

My wife and I went with another couple to The Oar. We had never eaten there and never heard of it, I did a google search and I found it. Looked good, so we went with it. They do not take reservations during the summer, so we arrived at 6:15 and were seated right away. Our table was inside but... More
