Bristol Oyster Bar is a testament to seafood as it was meant to be.

Peter Sebring has cultivated his vision for this restaurant since he was 14 years old. He has spent most of his time since then in the bay, fishing, and raising oysters. His many years on the bay has built an incredible awareness and love of local seafood. The idea behind Bristol Oyster Bar  is simple, create the ultimate fisherman to table dining experience using the highest level of care and craft.

Our mantra is:

“Everything from scratch using only the finest local ingredients”

Our Hand crafted menu items will change daily, and offer patrons the very best seafood delicacies to be found in the Narraganset Bay.

The Bristol Oyster Bar “The Home of Rhode Island’s Finest Oysters” in partnership with The Ocean State Shellfish Cooperative, and MS WALKER RI are proud to announce “Oyster Madness.” Bristol Oyster Bar has set up a tournament style bracket pitting oyster farms from across the Ocean State against one another. Oyster Madness will begin on Tuesday March 7th at 6 pm at The Bristol Oyster Bar located at 448 Hope St Bristol, RI 02809 and continue each subsequent Tuesday at 6 pm until the “Championshuck” conclusion on Tuesday April 4th at 6 pm.

The tournament is made up of 16 oyster farms and it’s played one-and-done style. The farms are seeded 1 through 8 and sorted into 2 regions. Each round the numbers shrink, going from the “Briny & Sweet 16” all the way to the “Championshuck”. The oysters will be served at the Bristol Oyster Bar in a blind tasting format. Participants that partake in the blind tasting will be required to fill out a scorecard selecting which oysters they prefer. All of the votes will be tallied each week until a final champion is selected.

There are two ways to participate. The first way is to fill out a bracket (available below) and email it to mailto:scott@bristoloysterbar.com or come and drop it off at the Bristol Oyster Bar. The second way is to fill out a bracket (available below) and to come and participate in the blind tastings. There will be weekly prizes for a best brackets and 2 grand prizes for top score.
