So excited to try Island Creek Oyster Bar
We will be in Boston next Friday staying over for an early flight out on Saturday and this restaurant is on our agenda!! Planning on heading over around the time they open. That will hopefully work out in getting in and getting us back into our hotel at a decent hour for that early morning alarm (4am!!!!).
We are not raw oyster eaters but the reviews of the fried clams among other items sound fantastic!!

Make a reservation, even for an early arrival. We tried to make reservations for last night and couldn't get one; thought we'd show up anyway and see what the wait was like. It was 3 hours. We went to Eastern Standard instead.

I love that we have now have a real alternative to B&G and Neptune.
The staff and service at ICOB instantly distinguishes itself from Neptune - warm, knowledgeable, welcoming, unpretentious. I really enjoyed everything we had (many oysters, cherrystones, fried clams (salty and very tasty, I liked the salty), other apps).
Why not try it and give us the benefit of your comparison?
We went on a Tuesday night, it was packed, I'd get reservations.
