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.

The food was disappointing. Tuna in the tower had a lot of nerves in it and was a very low quality. Baked potatoe was served cold... How is the butter supposed to melt? At least the clams on the half shell were good.
8 beer taps... Not one of them was an interesting choice. That's what happens when the beer distributor chooses what is served... No craft breweries allowed... Thanks ingen.

A spectacular night out with friends. The service was top notch and everything we ordered was cooked to perfection and delicious. We started with the lobster wontons and then 3 delicious and mouthwatering steaks.

I took my mom to Oar Steak and Seafood for restaurant week and it was absolutely delicious. Normally I feel so rushed at restaurant week that I only get to enjoy the atmosphere for an hour or so but The Oar was great! We had drinks, waited between courses and overall spent 2 hours loving the dining experience. I enjoyed the grilled octopus, lamb chops and cheesecake. I would recommend going back, it was gorgeous on the water and reasonably priced.

I had the swordfish with coconut rice it was spectacular, just delicious. Even the micro greens sprinkled on top were popping with flavor. The Oar is always a favorite.

The food was amazing, as it usually is. Our waitress was very pleasant an attentive. We dined on a Wednesday night, which happens to be half price wine bottle night. It's a great deal! We were seated at a table VERY close to the bar and the noise level was pretty loud, at some points hard to hear my husband who was just on the other side of the table from me. Other than that, dinner was ideal. Will definitely eat here again, but just know that Wednesday night can get a little louder than other nights.

When we first got there no one came over to the table for a bit and a waiter, who wasn't suppose to be in our section, came over and was the nicest server I have ever met. He took care of us and sent our server over who was just as great! Food was awesome as usual!

After the restaurant was highly recommended by a fried , Made a reservation and requested outside seating, was told by a not nice receptionist that it would be an additional 45 minute wait despite our reservation , and we continued to see multiple people walk in and be seated outside. Did not appreciate it. While the food was extremely good, I do not think we will be returning.

The BEST restaurant in Suffolk County, New York. Beautiful scenery and atmosphere right on the Patchogue River. Nestled in a love and quaint neighborhood south of busy Patchogue Village. The chef and food are outstanding! From St. Patrick's day specials like the corn beef dish and Oktoberfest specials like the saurerbraten, the Oar delivers consistently amazing food. The seafood dishes are fresh and delicious as well. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the south shore of Suffolk, Long Island. The owner is a class act too. Very friendly, humble and welcoming. I love this place!!! I've been going over a decade.
