The Oar

Enjoy our more casual side at The Oar, located at the Boat Basin in New Harbor on the beautiful Great Salt Pond. Serving lunch and dinner daily, The Oar offers something for everyone, including the area’s best clam chowder, New England lobster rolls, burgers, and a full sushi bar. Kick back on the back deck, featuring an unrivaled view of Great Salt Pond, as you enjoy a leisurely lunch or a sip of our famous Block Island Mudslide.

The Oar is open from mid May through mid October. Take out available.
