“Delicious food and friendly service”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Went here for brunch and it did not disappoint. While the brunch menu isn't as extensive as the dinner menu, the raw bar still serves a good assortment of oysters and you can still order the sliders. Would recommend getting a reservation for this place as it can get pretty crowded, especially for the dinner service. As for food, the sliders are great and their biscuit is amazing. The staff at ICOB are really friendly and at times, it seems that everyone is your server at this restaurant!

“Excellent Food & Service”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Went here in a group of 6, without a reservation. Seated immediately service was good and we were given the most delicious corn bread. All our meals were great as were the oysters. Not cheap but worth it. Would definately recommend.

“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.
