“Excellent tasting food”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

The Island Creek Oyster Bar has amazingly delicious food. I enjoyed the Lobster Roll and my colleagues inhaled the lobster noodle combination. I would recommend the iced tea which had a good minty taste. Get there early as it gets crowded.

“One of the best Oyster Restaurants in Boston”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

This place consistently serves up some of the the freshest and best oysters in Boston. It is larger than some of it's competition making it a little easier to get a reservation. If you love oysters, give this place a try!

“Pub food, restaurant prices.”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

Reasonable service but the woefully overcooked halibut ( what a crime), tasteless oyster sliders and fried clams served in a basket with a selection of shop-bought sauces all amounted to a disappointing meal. Reminiscent of UK pub food circa 1990. A shame because this restaurant's reputation is as good as it's fabulous decor and buzzy ambience.

“Friendly, relaxed and delicious!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

We sat at the bar before our dinner reservation and ordered a cocktail and oysters. The bartender helped us chose which oysters to order and made us incredible drinks. Our waitress at our table was friendly and brought us an order of fried oysters on the house when they ran out of fried clams. Very knowledgable of wine as well. Able to taste a couple of wines before ordering just a glass. We will return!
