We came in for lunch and seriously it was the closest thing to perfection! Tray took amazing care of us, it couldn’t have gone better. Buck a shuck for lunch is a must ! They had a spicy and savory poke bowl that was to die for! Overall amazing, we will absolutely be back!

Can’t say enough about this place! The food and service were exceptional! The staff went above and beyond for my husband that has some food allergies...we always feel like this puts a burden on the server and the kitchen but they didn’t bat an eye and made us feel very safe and welcome! Also the setup they have for dining in during a pandemic made us feel safe. They have partitions between tables and at the bar. We loved it and will definitely be returning soon.

First time diners and we were very impressed. Food was great, Tre was our server and was remarkable. Outstanding presence, very engaging, even sent us home with some blue cheese stuffed olives. This may seem silly, but, not many restaurants we frequent offer these any more. We told Tre this and after we paid our bill he brought over olives for the road. Tre saw an opportunity to wow a guest, with minimal effort or cost, and seized it. We will be back

With the world situation, the team at the Providence Oyster Bar provided a great night out. The food was excellent and fresh. The service was enjoyable with the most friendly waitress that made our night complete. I would highly recommend this to all who need a good night out with dinner.

We love to come to the Providence Oyster Bar for the absolute best, freshest oysters. Always a great variety too. We also had a lobster roll and the tempura shrimp tacos, both were excellent! And the French fries! I’m usually not a huge fans of fries, but these were curiously delicious. Hand cut and cooked perfectly. Mike (oyster and sushi pro) was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the oysters, where they came from, which variety would have a certain flavor profile, very helpful! Great atmosphere, this is a must visit for us!

I dine here at least once a week. The bartenders are so awesome. The food is great. I usually come for the happy hour menu which has many options and I’ve tried the brunch recently and was extremely satisfied. This is my top of the list go to places so I highly recommend this restaurant.
