Matunuck Oyster Bar review (RI)

Heard great things about MOB so went there for dinner Saturday night. Gorgeous view, nicely setup outdoor seating and bar area over looking an inlet (which the sun sets over). Valet parking is a nice touch when it is as crowded as it was Saturday. Had a 45 minute wait for a table, but easily got drinks at the inside bar.

The food itself was good, but not amazing. Got the clam chowder (entirely too thick, which is too bad because the underlieing flavor was nice) and the little neck clams, chourico and white beans dish (very good, although a bit too salty). My wife got a lobster which was large and tasty.

Service was lacking - but given how packed it was, this was not shocking. Forgot the claw-cracker for the lobster, and then forgot again when we asked for one. But she was nice and tried hard.

Would absolutely go back again for the great location and good food.
