I ate here frequently when I lived on long Island, but have not been to The Oar since 2003, when I moved away. But being in the area over Christmas, I decided to eat there again. The atmosphere is wonderful, sitting right on the water, although it was night and raining so we ate inside. The service was a little... More

It's not the easiest place to find unless maybe you're coming by boat. It's right on the Patchogue river with many tables available to check out the views and outside dining if the weather permits. They have a really nice bar area also. The 8 oz. Filet with red wine reduction is to die for and just melts in your... More

The Oar accommodated our party of nine on short notice on a Friday night, Thanksgiving weekend. We had first selected a different restaurant in Patchogue for "steak", not "seafood", but the management of the first restaurant failed to inform us that there would be a live auction in the adjoining bar area! Not only did we find ourselves with instantaneous... More

This is my third review of the Oar, it is still a great place for family, friends, or couples, or just stopping buy for a drink at the bar. This restaurant goes from burgers to steaks, or great seafood dishes. The only change is the building has been extended and slightly remodeled for additional dining area. Always a great choice...

This restaurant is by far one of the best seafood restaurants that I have been to. The food and service is ALWAYS Top Notch! Try the Grilled Lobster Club. It is a favorite of my wife and I. And if you are lucky you might get Stephanie as a waitress!

We visited on a lovely Wednesday for lunch. We have been to this restaurant many times and have had very pleasant experiences. Today our lunch was ok but there were a couple of things that were off. First, there were flies in the dining room. Their French doors were closed to the deck which was fine but why in November... More

The Oar is a local "go to" bar and restaurant serving quality seafood and other American fare. Always a warm and fuzzy feeling from the Ownership, management and excellent staff. Be it winter, spring, summer or fall, the Oar is always a good choice to leave your day behind.

Pretty expensive for a very small amount of food, not impressed. There are much better seafood places around.

We were 4.5 people for lunch, including a tired 3 year old and her mother, who really didn't eat with us but spent her time outside comorting her daughter. My rating reflects what it is-a casual restaurant on a marina, with good food, friendly and surprisingly good service, and a very pleasant atmosphere. They serve both seafood and meat, and... More

This is a casual and comfortable restaurant with consistent good food and service. Bartender is also good. We have enjoyed coming here with family a few times a year.
