A word from The Oar Steak and Seafood Grill
Casual waterfront dining right on the docks of the Patchogue River, The Oar serves up fresh and delicious steaks and seafood.  Chefs prepare specialties like coconut shrimp, 36 oz sizzling prime porterhouse, lobster quesadillas and fresh Bluepoint oysters and little clams which are delivered daily.  Two dining rooms are decorated in traditional nautical style.  The front wall in made up of French doors that open onto the water, providing dockside open air seating in warm months and picturesque views of the marina year-round.  The rear dining room is elegant with raise panel mahogany, white table clothes and blue and white nautical stripe wall paper.  We look forward to accommodating your special occasion in the separate catering room.  The restaurant stocks full indoor and outdoor bars so you'll never miss a beautiful night at this fun and entertaining spot.

Diner Reviews
  • "The waitress made our dining experience outstanding, and the food was terrific! Making the reservation online was easy and quick."

  • "It is nice to see an updated menu with lots of fish and interesting accompaniments. However, the sizzling steak for 2 they serve is ridiculous - it fills the room with smoke and is very off-putting. that should only be served outside!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Clearly the chef knows what he/she is doing....the plates that come out are beautiful, creative, & delicious! The space is extremely tight & noisy, but the food is delicious! The skillet mussels is a creative dish....never seen it before. Anxiously waiting for warm weather when dining on the dock is fun."

  • "I know that sounds a little exaggerated but my husband and I always go out to eat, I mean like every night and we've been to so many restaurants. The Oar has never let us down. Winter or summer, the food is always great and if you want them to do something different (always dieting in the winter) they always accommodate you. The atmosphere is always so lively and fun and the owner always makes his rounds and makes you feel like a friend. The only disappointment is trying to get a table in the summer time. Everyone wants to be there so we either go early or much later. Its a great restaurant, give it try and you'll become a regular."

  • "We took my BF's mom to the Oar for her birthday. She was craving seafood and ordered the sea bass while her son (my BF) ordered the Mako special. I opted for lamb chops, because I always get lamb chops. All three entrees were delicious, well-prepared and beautifully presented. Service was great and substitutions (like rice instead of wasabi mashed potatoes) were graciously honored with nary a smirk. We live 10 minutes from the Oar, and while I've been there a couple of times, neither of my dinner guests had. They were appropriately impressed and I know we'll be back, probably many times. Well done, Oar! (By the way, the pre-dinner cocktails were mmmmmm - yummy.)"

  • "I've been to the Oar before and it was wonderful, so this time I returned with old friends and they loved it! They wanted to know how did you find this place?? Not only was the food & drinks delicious, and the service great but there was a jazz band for dinner! Pure Gold! It's tucked away in Patchogue."

  • "Menu has been updated and it's good - the food was very fresh, and bountiful portions. Specialty drinks were VERY expensive. We were in the corner table, which was a nice size for our group of 9, but we were neglected a bit by the waitress. Then, when a table that was 4 away from us order the porterhouse steaks, the waitress set up the sizzling and smoking plates near our table and walked the dishes over the the table that ordered them, leaving us sitting there in smoke. VERY disturbing and NOT SMART."

  • "Always a nice time eating out on the Southshore. The nicer the weather the more crowded you will find this place. Tons of locals dine here and they do have valet parking on the weekends. Seafood selection is nice and they are moderately priced."

  • "As always, the Oar was the best choice for my niece's graduation celebration. We always go in the summer when the bands are playing to have a great time and great food, but winter time is special at the Oar also because they can be alot more attentive to you, which they were. My niece couldn't thank me enough for leading her here for the first time and she plans on coming back again and again. Thank you Oar for making our celebration special and as usual the food was fantastic!"

  • "Had a great time. Live music great. Table seating could have been better. We were in a hi traffic area. Only negative of the whole dining experience. I especially favored the Tiramisu. Don't change it. Service second to none. Thanks so much."

  • "Excellent food but sitting in front of glass doors to the outside it was freezing. I mentioned it to maitre d who said she would put on the heat but she never did. I sat the entire night with my winter coat on"
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "Love this place. Food is always good but maybe a bit overpriced. Outdoor seating in the summer, so not so big in the winter. Music from the bar area was a little loud where we sat but not overpowering. Service was excellent."

  • "This was our first visit to the Oar Steak and Seafood in Patchogue. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. It is a generally older crowd with an adjacent bar...so it was friendly, but.....lets say hearty. I would definitely recommend this place. I have tried to try this restaurant several times but it is always packed w people, so be prepared to come and have a drink @ the bar while waiting."

  • "Food and service were exceptional. One of the best steaks I ever had. Chilean sea bass with wasabi mashed potatoes was spectacular. Strong beer selection and an out of the ordinary wine list. A bit noisy, but that's the only negative. Can't wait for summer so we can dine outside on the water"

  • "Good food. Nice setting. Excellent service. We happened to go Restaurant Week, so while we could have ordered from the main menu, the special menu proved fine. Our appetizers were a bacon-wrapped scallop, with just a touch of heat--very good, and a burrata salad-- excellent cheese, firm outer shell, creamy inside, with flavorful garden supplements. The lobster ravioli came in a light, sweet red sauce that matched beautifully, and my mahi-mahi was cooked spot-on. The apple crisp ala mode for dessert was a little disappointing, as by the time we got it the ice cream had pretty much melted into an apply mush--but the taste was there. Order the ice cream on the side and you'll be fine. Probably a dynamite view in good weather. We'd go again."
