Fresh Local Seafood
At Matunuck Oyster Bar, we are committed to providing the freshest food available, using locally sourced produce along with farm-raised and wild-caught seafood. Our signature raw bar is fully stocked with a variety of Rhode Island oysters, crisp cherrystones, littleneck clams, and jumbo shrimp. Our very own Matunuck Oysters are grown in Potter Pond, right off our waterfront patio. In addition, many of the herbs and vegetables found in our delectable meals are grown on our organic vegetable farm on the north end of Potter Pond.

Owner, Perry Raso and Executive Chef Jeff Cruff met in 1999 when Perry was scuba diving for steamers and peddling them to Newport restaurants. Jeff was then the Chef/Owner of what was then Perry’s favorite restaurant, Cheeky Monkey. The relationship grew; in 2002 when Perry started his oyster farm, Jeff was one of his first customers. Perry realized that Chef Jeff was unique not only in his personality but in his level of organization and cleanliness of his kitchen. By 2008 Perry’s oyster farm was selling oysters across the country. In order to ensure the future of the farm, he purchased the only commercial dock on Potter Pond, where his oysters are farmed. Attached to the dock was a rundown restaurant that had been closed for several years. Perry opened the restaurant on July 1, 2009 as Matunuck Oyster Bar. In 2010, Matunuck Oyster Bar’s second year of opening, Perry and Chef Jeff joined forces to become what we are today.
