“Great beach bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Pull up front and the professional valets park your car in a lot that is packed with cars belonging to people that know they are getting a good meal. Walk into the fenced in area and pull up a bar stool at the bar or sit at a picnic table and be prepared to eat....you like lobster rolls???? Well they have them, hot or cold, yummy !!!! I love raw bar and this place has the freshest clams and oysters around, ice cold with all the delicious sauces/fixings. The oysters are grown right there in town, cant get any fresher. The place gets very busy so arrive early or wait in line. Loved it !!!!

“A summer evening by the sea in Rhode Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

A truly outstanding fresh oyster, clams, mussels and scallops experience prior to beautiful fish main courses. Half an hour from Newport . You must not miss but have to reserve.

“Delicious, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

Great outside dining! Even though ithe day was a little chilly, they had outdoor heaters, so we could eat outdoors and enjoy the fresh air and the location (we were very comfortable). The food was fresh and delicious. We'll definitely return.

“Freshest Oysters Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Great restaurant with perfect setting. We love sitting outside for cocktails and dinner. Food incredibly fresh. They raise their own oysters!!! Only downside is the wait for a table on summer evenings can be very long. Suggest going either offseason or an off time.

“Freshest Oysters on The Planet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

The owner of this establish has spared no expense at making this THE place to eat, see, and be seen. He farms the oysters in the adjacent pristine waters. You will sit among faithful locals, business leaders, politicos,and celebrity guests on any given day here because the valet parking says that you are truly a welcomed VIP guest at the Matunuck Oyster Bar. The oyster sampler is outstanding. I usually spring for the goat cheese and caramelized walnut salad to accompany our oysters. When there is a chill in the air it is tough to beat their creamy flavorful oyster stew. The view in any season is magical of Matunuck Cove. Be part of the hipster crowd and be at The Matunuck Oyster Bar.
