Island Creek Oyster Bar

Island Creek Oyster Bar

A New England original designed to celebrate and educate diners about oysters and the bounty of the sea, ICOB is also a celebration of community. A collaboration of a farmer (Skip Bennett), a chef (Jeremy Sewall) and a restaurateur (Garrett Harker), a deep sense of community and connection lie at its core. Taking inspiration from the Island Creek Oyster farm in Duxbury, the restaurant was designed by famed restaurant architect Peter Bentel, of Bentel & Bentel in New York. Various elements, such as Gabion cages filled with tens of thousands of Island Creek oyster shells, reclaimed Wyoming snow fence used to create window shutters and an oversized photograph of Duxbury Bay, come together to create a slice of Duxbury in Boston's Back Bay. The centerpiece of the room is a 25 seat bar that is divided by a daily-changing grand raw bar display that features an extensive list of 12-18 oysters, as well as lobsters, clams, shrimp and other specialties. In addition to extensive seafood offerings, our menu also features selections "from the land" for our non-seafood eating friends.


Monday - Saturday: 4:00 p.m. - 1:00 a.m.
Sunday: 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 a.m.
