A beach bar, a pub, a surf shop, a coffee truck, a pizza place, and vacation rentals. Basically we’re the Breakfast Club of the hospitality industry. A rag-tag group of misfits with the common goal to build Matunuck into a village where people want to live, work, and have a good time. Join our crew and become part of our village.


We are growing into so much more than ‘just a beach bar’.

We’re not just looking for bartenders and line cooks -- although we are looking for those too! The Matunuck Group encompasses a variety of businesses from hospitality to retail. There is also a big team behind the scenes that works hard to support and grow those businesses. We’re focusing on turning jobs into careers and we’re looking for people with a long-term mindset.

We offer health insurance and a retirement plan (with company match!) for all positions -- whether you wash dishes or work in the office. There are also a number of other fun perks like employee discounts across the businesses, concert tickets, and lots of opportunities to choose your own career adventure. You can be an accountant by day and bartend at night. Part time or full time. Seasonal or year-round. Come see what our village has to offer.


We simply want good people with good attitudes. No experience is necessary for many of our positions. Preference will be given to those available to work holidays and weekends. Bring your skills and good vibes to Matunuck. Become part of our village.


Fill out an application online on Indeed or in person at the Ocean Mist (for all businesses) at 895 Matunuck Beach Road, Matunuck, RI 02879. Please include your resume and a cover letter describing your strengths, what role(s) you are interested in applying for, and why you think you’d be a good fit. Once you submit an application it will be sent directly to our hiring team. They will review your qualifications and experience. You will be contacted by phone and/or email should there be a match.


The “Ocean Mist – Just a beach bar!” was once known as Carpenters Café having been built by the Carpenter family in 1928. The building originally operated as a local watering hole that served as a snack bar for beach patrons.

Throughout the history of the Ocean Mist, the building has weathered many storms including the hurricane of 1938. But in 1983, the perfect storm hit the coast and the entire kitchen, deck and a third of the building was lost.

In 1988, Kevin Finnegan purchased the building with a commitment to preserving the building’s history and providing a live music venue for South County. In 2018, The Mist celebrated its 30th anniversary. Throughout the years, the Ocean Mist has become a place of community and visitors alike. A place for the community to come and celebrate the good times and mourn the losses. A place that welcomes visitors worldwide to come and relax by the soothing sound of the Atlantic Ocean.

Over three decades later, Kevin Finnegan has kept true to his word by preserving the nostalgic way of life in Matunuck while focusing on the revitalization of the village. By acquiring the businesses adjacent to the Ocean Mist, he has been able to maintain the thriving businesses rather than watch them be replaced by oceanfront homes. The Pub, Matunuck Pizza Pie Co., Matunuck Surf Shop, Point Break Cottages, Surfside Café, and Block Island Pizza Pie Co. are the results of Finnegan’s core values of placing his community and people first. With each new venture, Kevin has created job opportunities for people from near and far. For many, they come to understand, though the work may be hard at times, it is fun and rewarding. Many summer jobs become lifetime careers.

Welcome to the Village of Matunuck…we hope you stay.
