“farm-to-table oyster bar”

We opened the Island Creek Oyster Bar to bring the restaurant to the farmer. It's a collaboration joining farmer, chef, and diner in one space. We welcome guests to get to know their oyster grower, harvester, winemaker, distiller, brewer, and fisherman. One meal at a time.  A hybrid of New England shore food and creative, seasonally influenced seafood, our menu reflects our sensibility, printed just before service to ensure that we’re presenting the freshest ingredients possible. Our fish selections and oyster list change daily depending on what’s coming off the water while our New England classics, like steamed lobster caught by chef’s cousin Mark in Maine, and Mrs. Bennett’s seafood casserole, can be found here regularly. For a sampling of plates to share, look to the left or, settle in with a couple of substantial entree selections from the right. Because owners Jeremy Sewall and Skip Bennett maintain close, personal relationships with many of our purveyors, you’ll find their names sprinkled throughout the menu along with the names of those who have inspired us (we’re looking at you, Ethel and Nancy). We hope you enjoy getting to know these personalities and their contributions as much as we have.

I wish that I could live in this restaurant — it's absolutely perfect. Everything that I have had here is amazing and to make it all the better, they have seasonally rotating items, so you could never possibly get bored with the menu. I could go on and on. As a special treat, the restaurant is perfectly designed and every detail from the decor all the way to the pens that the servers use is considered and executed wonderfully — bravo, Oat Creative.

Briny-sweet Island Creek oysters factor big into the menu at this seafood stalwart, of course, but a dozen of them on the half-shell provide the mere starting point for an excellent sea-themed meal. Try the rosemary-bunned lobster roll, fried clams and lobster roe-infused noodles.
