“Wow, perfect dinner for 4”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

We were 2 couples. We had not been there in a while, but decided on the spur of the moment to try it. Friday 5pm, the parking lot was jammed, I was sure we would have a wait. No so, we got our choice of a table, either inside or out. We decided to eat outside, take in the view and the music. BTW, the band was Awesome, they had a fabulous female lead singer.
Our drink order and meal order was taken quickly. We all had something different. I had soup and a rare Tuna salad, very generous order and nice presentation. One person had a huge lamb chop, one had scallops with asparagus, and the last order was for swordfish, which was also huge. We all loved our dinner, everything was perfectly cooked, and presented. The price was actually reasonable, and considering, we all loved our selections, it was a home run.
Maybe we were lucky with getting a table right away, the weather was not the greatest, so I would probably make a reservation if possible.

“authentic lobster roll”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

We have frequented The Oar often, but hadn't been there for over a year. We decided to go for lunch today; chose a lovely table outside and had a delicious meal. We had originally planned to have a bowl of their very tasty bisque, but since I have been hankering for a lobster roll, we both ordered it. It is served on a New England style roll--the only acceptable vehicle for the lobster. The roll was overflowing with large chunks of lobster, very little filling and a touch of mayo. Delicious! My grandfather and father spent much of their lives lobstering in Boston, Mass., so I am very particular about my lobster. (They would come into the kitchen after a day on the water; my grandmother would have the water simmering on the stove, and the lobsters were served on the kitchen table with the plastic tablecloth and lots of butter. We filled ourselves with lobster--no sides--and I thought that's how everyone ate.) Anyway, try the lobster roll at The Oar.
Our server was delightful; smiling, chatting with us throughout.
We will definitely be back. The dinner entrees are also yummy!

“A hidden gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

On a bright and sunny day, sitting outside overlooking the Patchogue River, lunch is wonderful and plentiful. The dockside atmosphere is great and the fish tacos are wonderful. I would go back again and again!

“A longtime favorite.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

The Oar has been a restaurant destination of locals for ever. It is close to impossible to get a table in the Spring and Summer on the weekends without a reservation made at least a week in advance. We eat at this restaurant often and stop at the bar frequently. This is a lively fun place on the water with harbor views and dock space, and excellent food! From burgers to shell steaks, raw bar and delicious fish dishes, we never tire of the menu items, there are always specials on the board. I must mention that they do have entertainment on the weekends, inside when it's cool and on the dock in nicer weather. Great place to kick back and enjoy good food and drinks.

“Nice atmosphere and food”

I have been here many times. The dockside atmosphere is very nice. Food is good, and you MUST try the "salt and vinegar wings"...
