“The best seafood I've ever eaten!!!!!”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Oh my, the Oysters were the most wonderful! The best Shrimp cocktail ever! And those Lobster rolls and french fries, sooo good! Our waitress could not have been more friendly and sweet. Be sure to make a reservation, this is a happening spot.

“Deliciously simple”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

The restaurant has a great friendly vibe, good for couples or a group of friends. The oyster selection is fantastic, and the produce is nice and fresh. The staff were very friendly and accomodating to our needs. Definitely recommend trying most of the oysters on the menu, you will not be disappointed! The mains were simple and good, but not outstanding.

“Highly recommend”
Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

It is a little pricier but awesome atmosphere and food. $16 valet is worth it. Staff is helpful to newbies at an oyster bar. Also have a list of different wines and beers.

“Great Oyster Selection and Perfect for a Special Occasion”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

I took my husband here for his birthday, and we had a wonderful meal. The entire staff was great, and really cared about our dining experience, they even printed 'Happy Birthday' on our menus. We started with the oyster sliders and 1/2 dozen oysters that the waitress suggested, the sliders were awesome and it was fun to try different oysters from the east and west coast. We then had a small basket of fried clams, which were my husbands favorite. For dinner we ordered the Lobster Roe Noodles and the Scallops, both dishes were delicious, I really enjoyed the pasta dish. We didn't order dessert, but our waitress brought out a small birthday treat - sorbet, which was refreshing. ICOB gets pretty busy, so I would make a reservation (even for a week night). Also, the earlier you are there the better, as they tend to run out of specials as the night goes on.

“Fresh seafood... Locally sourced”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

If locally sourced food is what you love, this is a fantastic place to eat. Great food, with a menu that changes daily, and a wonderful drink menu.
