Island Creek Oyster Bar Ratings and Reviews
raw bar was amazing. My husband had the oysters several different varieties and was noticeably impressed by the freshness. I had jumbo shrimp cocktail and have to say that it ranks in the top. We splurged on desserts and they were worth it. Boston cram donuts yummo. And banana caramel pie. The meal the staff everything was amazing.
Island Creek Oyster Bar is one my favorites in Boston. This is where I had my first taste of east coast oysters when I moved here five years ago. We definitely had to come here for our anniversary. The service and food was great! The fried oyster sliders are a must! My herb crusted cod in a saffron broth was an excellent choice. Thanks ICOB, you never disappoint!
We went to Island Creek Oyster Bar because we were trapped in Boston by the storm in Jan. 2018 and it was close to our hotel. It is difficult to judge how the restaurant might be on a normal night because when we were there the place was understandably almost empty. Still, the decor, the food, the service were all superb. A very memorable occasion.
The oyster sliders were incredible!! The wait staff was very nice and accommodating. They allowed us a last minute addition to our party. They had many people helping us as a team. It was super fun and festive for New Year’s Eve. We had a blast, the food was moth wateringly good, and the staff was amazing. We can’t wait until the next time we are Boston to come back!!
I brought the Birthday cake, because my kid’s birthday surprise gift. but we can not enjoy the cake together, your bar charged 3 dollars of each. so if I want to eat this cake 3 people together, I have to pay total 9 dollars. It is not good for us and kind of breaking the good moods.
We were very, very disappointed. The brunch menu online was very different from the one that we were presented with when we got to the restaurant, and though we'd been looking forward to trying several of the online offerings, there was basically nothing we wanted to eat (egg white omelette, tuna fish sandwich, baked beans--no thanks). We felt misled by the menu that Open Table put up, so we left without eating.
The oysters were amazing!! Definitely go for that - there are tons of choices. Both the mains were underwhelming considering the amount you pay for them - undersalted and my potatoes were undercooked. They redeemed themselves for dessert the banofee pie was delish! All in all don't think the main dishes are worth it - have cocktails, oysters and dessert!
Best oysters in town! The Island Creeks are always the best! The non-seafood specials always sound good, but I always come here to order a ton of oysters, fried oyster sliders, and fried clams. These items are always consistently delicious and keep me coming back. Service is always great and they have a good beer and wine list, too. Also, complimentary sparkling water is always a nice touch!
The food was pretty good but overpriced and not outstanding. Too much bacon in the clam chowder. The pepper on the salmon crudo was palette destroying. The fish and chips had an extremely heavy batter and were served with a cup of what seemed to be plain mayonnaise. The mignonette for the oysters was not as great as others I have had. Desserts were overpriced and underwhelming.
Tried to get into this restaurant on our last trip to Boston but it was a two hour wait. This time made a reservation one month in advance and it was worth it. Great food and close to Fenway Park. Would definitely eat here again and would recommend it highly.
