Matunuck Oyster Bar

Have you ever eaten oysters fished directly from the bay and shucked directly onto your dinner plate? The Matunuck Oyster Bar in Kingstown, Rhode Island actually farms its oysters right in front of the restaurant. You can enjoy a cocktail and an ocean breeze as they shuck your oysters straight out of the bay.

A fantastic raw shellfish sampler. This is the perfect match with an icy cold dry martini. The clams were briny, the oysters were ice cold and tasted like the deepest ocean water, the shrimp cocktail was perfectly tender.
