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.

Our second annual champion shuck is taking place this March!

Oyster Madness will begin on Tuesday March 6th at 6pm at The Bristol Oyster Bar located at 448 Hope St Bristol, RI 02809 and continue each subsequent Tuesday and Wednesday at 6pm until the “Championshuck” conclusion on Tuesday April 3rd at 6pm.

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” 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.

We are still waiting on the finalized lineup of our oysters. Once we have the complete 16, you will be able to fill out a bracket before hand to determine the best Rhode Island oyster! The best bracket can win upwards to a $400 gift certificate to the Bristol Oyster Bar!

We hope to see you there!

Let the shucking commence!
