An amazing restaurant! The food is always fresh and delicious. The shrimp cocktail are the best I've ever had. My wife had the short rib special which was incredibly tender and seasoned. My daughter had the fried oysters which are always the sweetest and very tender, and I had the sea bass which was great too. Farm fresh vegetables are... More

Have only been during the crazy summer months...we both had a weekday off so we thought we would avoid a crowd and take a ride there on a sunny winter day for lunch. While there was no line on Succotash red or valet, still crowded due to Valentine's Day We were seated right away on the first level ( the... More

Four of us had dinner at the Matunuck Oyster Bar on a foggy January evening in the thick of Rhode Island restaurant week. We arrived to a massive line up, even though we had reservations we still had to wait a while on our table but it was well worth it. My husband and I opted for the set menu... More

Really loved this place! If you love seafood and have your lunch by the water, this is the place to go. I had the lobster roll and it was really full of lobster. The price was average for a lobster roll, but I thought this was a better deal since you got so much lobster. Next time we go I... More

Had a lobster roll which was very good with lots of lobster. Fries were soggy though. Chowder very good as well as tuna entree. Excellent raw bar.

I came here to eat last year on Labor Day and this year with the family. I love this place because of the service and fresh seafood. The owner of the restaurant was eating with his friends while I was there and I told him that I drove from New York City just to eat at his place. Price for... More

We stopped here on our way to Newport and could not believe how busy it was in the middle of winter! Thank goodness for valet parking, and we were seated quickly even though the restaurant was packed. Great selection of oysters (plus they farm their own), oyster stew, and entrees. Would eat here again anytime!

Matunuck Oyster Bar is a must if you are a seafood lover. I have eaten there a number of times and have never been disappointed. Two days ago my husband and I sat at a table for two with a view of the inlet. My lobster roll was phenomenal ( and I consider myself a lobster roll expert). It was... More
