Yes, it's a play on words but honestly, I have to make a joke about this place because we thought it to be more upscale that it was. Yes, it has a really nice atmosphere and the outside speaks ambiance by the lake but, the...More

We visited the Oar House on Christmas Eve. We eat here several times a year, but the last 2 visits have not been up to the usual quality. The services was spotty with no offer of fresh pepper or Parmesan, which out of character. The...More

We had lunch at Oar House. The decor was intimate and relaxing. The service was excellent. The menu extensive and so hard to choose. We had the stuffed mushrooms, divinel, then the scallopini with Marsala sauce and mushrooms and risotto of the sea. Both dishes...More
