This place was incredible, my family shared the ribs, strip steak and the seafood over linguini and everything was delicious. Would highly recommend to anyone regardless of meat or seafood preferences!

We went on a Tuesday evening when the special was $1 oysters. After a dozen and a beer we were seated at a table and ordered dinner. We enjoyed a good meal and had a great time with the friendly staff.

A recent visit with a Groupon enabled us to eat there without spending too much. This being a seafood spot, the prices are on the higher side, so the Groupon helped. We enjoyed the food, but the prices would be a limiting factor for further visits.

This has been a regular spot for years and has always met or exceeded our expectations. The atmosphere is lively during the warmer months, but is still great this time of the year when you can't really enjoy the river location. The bar staff is always attentive and friendly, as are the staff in the restaurant, and the owner Dick... More

Place is a great place on the water. From appetizers through dessert and drinks as well, could not complain about anything. If you want to go and have a night cap, great bar with light live music to help you enjoy your drinks. As for our service, she was simply fantastic and didn't rush us one bit. Always stopping by...

Dined at the Oar nearly a dozen times in 2016. Locations varied from dining at the bar as well as outside beside the Patchogue River. Similar to any restaurant with a desirable view there is strong competition for the best location. The Oar draws a crowd - especially when the weather is pleasant. Offers a varied menu and we particularly... More

I ate here frequently when I lived on long Island, but have not been to The Oar since 2003, when I moved away. But being in the area over Christmas, I decided to eat there again. The atmosphere is wonderful, sitting right on the water, although it was night and raining so we ate inside. The service was a little... More

It's not the easiest place to find unless maybe you're coming by boat. It's right on the Patchogue river with many tables available to check out the views and outside dining if the weather permits. They have a really nice bar area also. The 8 oz. Filet with red wine reduction is to die for and just melts in your... More

The Oar accommodated our party of nine on short notice on a Friday night, Thanksgiving weekend. We had first selected a different restaurant in Patchogue for "steak", not "seafood", but the management of the first restaurant failed to inform us that there would be a live auction in the adjoining bar area! Not only did we find ourselves with instantaneous... More

This is my third review of the Oar, it is still a great place for family, friends, or couples, or just stopping buy for a drink at the bar. This restaurant goes from burgers to steaks, or great seafood dishes. The only change is the building has been extended and slightly remodeled for additional dining area. Always a great choice...
