We must have been past the street the restaurant is on over a hundred times but this time we made a point to stop for lunch --- and we were not disappointed. We stopped on a Saturday around 2pm and there was quite a crowd. They have a system where they text you when your table is available -- which... More

Went with 2 friends Friday night, table by the water, excellent waitress, food was fantastic especially the local oysters and any any seafood dish on the menu. Restaurant was packed, reservations allowed at this time of year. Suggest a visit to the " Oyster Bar" either before or afterwards. Wine was very good and not too expensive.

We spend our summers in Rhode Island, and the Matunuck Oyster Bar is a must visit - especially if you love fresh shucked oysters. Once you've downed your limit of oysters the menu has an extensive listing of excellent seafood dishes. I guess there's something for non-seafood types, but don't really care! They also have an excellent selection of great... More

My husband and I have always enjoyed the fresh, plentiful food at Matunuck Oyster Bar. So, I chose to have my birthday dinner there last Friday, March 17th, St.Patrick's Day. I'm very sorry to say that we were quite disappointed. We felt that the portions were much smaller than usual and the price was very expensive. The freshness and quality... More

Lazy Sunday in March, we tried out during Restaurant Week. Service was great, sea ted quickly. Our server was wonderful. We tried the specials, swordfish and the haddock. Excellent. Very tasty, good portion size and nice and savory. The NE chowder was nice and thick, lots of clams. Price was right.

What a fun place with a view. The clam chowder is excellent. You must have the bourbon oysters and a Sam Adams. Great place for meeting friends and having a good time with great fresh oysters. Very fresh and wonderful New England food.

The good: lob bisque is insanely good and a well executed preparation. My wife's seared tuna was very good with a well balanced mustard sauce and excellent mashed. What went off the rails was jambalaya. Horrible. Basically Cajun topppng put on on wet uncle bens unseasoned instant rice. If you can't do it right get it off the menu. This... More
