Island Creek Oyster Bar- must eats besides oysters?

Everyone seems to rave that the oysters here are great. How about the other dishes?

Any "must try" entrees or appetizers?

How do they compare to B and G or Neptune? Again, not talking about the oysters.

Thanks!

  1. We had a killer fluke tartar, and enjoyed the oyster slider very much as well.

      Fluke (Hirame) is a classic sushi fish. It is great in New England this time of year.

    2. Loved my lobster roll (though not as good as Neptune's warm one) and fried clams. Desserts were just amazing.

      1. Last night we had the day boat cod and the swordfish. Both were fabulous.

        1. The lobster roe noodles are incredible. If you don't mind eating fish whole (on the bone, whatever), try the whole black bass with buckwheat noodles in a lobster broth. Wow.

          The cider donuts sound pretty ordinary but they're anything but. Get them. Pumpkin cheesecake is pretty awesome too.

            Both of those desserts were great, and the chocolate pudding was AMAZING. Sounds pedestrian, but it wasn't.

          2. Another vote for the fluke crudo and the cider donuts. The lobster roll is good, but no match for Neptune's hot buttered one IMO.
