found it to be sooo disappointing ......the dinner was equal to what i could buy in my job's cafeteria.....service was mediocore at best.....the restrooms were FILTHY !!!!..... if i had gone in before dinner i would not have eaten there. the only reason it got a star is the view .....very pretty.
The Atlantic Inn is a wonderful quaint old hotel to stay at. The Victorian Decor makes it...and the meals at the Restaurant are scrumptious. The Chef is one of the best on the Island. You have to try it.
The clear attraction to the Oar is the great view of the new harbor you get from its broad deck, which features drop down plastic sides to protect guests from the wind when that becomes too much. Decorated by oars contributed by guests, it clearly has great local color, and great views.
The food is solid, though not spectacular. I would rate it slightly better than the Beachhead, which you should also consider if you are looking for a fun place with a view. The bar tends to be understaffed, and you should expect a reasonable wait at peak times. Staff is friendly but busy. We found the Beachhead wait shorter.
The Oar is located over on the New Harbor side of the island. Its a brisk but certainly doable walk from the Old Harbor side of the island. Taxi ride for 4 was $13 plus tips. Dress is very casual.
Food quality and selection is poor. The fried fish seemed underdone and perhaps frozen. The hamburger was like a thin hockey puck. The menu should really have some better fresh seafood selections.
The view and setting is spectacular but find another place to eat after enjoying a cocktail.
