ICOB is one of my favorite restaurants. Oysters are great and many choices. Lobster roll, Ipswich clams and fish are well prepared and not overpriced. Service is great too. Don't forget the desserts.

We had a wonderful experience there when we were there in 2015! The atmosphere and food was amazing, and the service was impeccable. The lobster roll was great and the oyster selection was out of this world. I would highly recommend it!!!
