Island Creek Oyster Bar Restaurant Review

Island Creek Oyster Bar
My Opinions:  What a great interior! I can't believe this is the same space Great Bay was in (RIP Great Bay). Be sure to get a close-up of the far back wall made up of all oyster shells.

The newly elongated bar was packed with a great crowd, the lounge tables were full and the dining room was running smoothly. I experienced great service at the bar and then in the dining room. The raw bar is the best around and the food is good. To be fair, the two deserts I tried were not very good, a bit dry and flavorless, so save the calories or go somewhere else. And rounding out the offerings, they have a great wine list and cocktail menu.

As long as oysters remain plentiful and fresh, I hope to see this place stay around for a long time. Go SHUCKING!
