Matunuck Oyster Bar, South Kingstown, RI
Wonderful seafood restaurant. Oyster bar, fresh fish and clam dinners..I had the special of scallops, shrimp, and seafood pot pie. Open Thursday thru Sunday during the winter. Take US 1 to the Snug Harbor East Matunuck exit, and follow Succotash Rd. for about a mile and a half.
I was hoping this place would have it together by now. They do have great food and you can't beat a fresh oyster (and great location), but the service is still horrendous. We stood at the front for about 5 minutes, as the waitress walked by us twice without even acknowledging us. Not even a "Hi, one minute please." Feeling invisible is fun! Then after we ordered our oysters & drinks, we waited about 20-25 minutes before they were brought to us. I have to say the food was good -- I had fish & chips, friend had lobster roll which had huge chunks of lobster.
I just wish they'd hire more competent waitstaff who actually LIKE their jobs... these girls seemed miserable...
