When first making its mark as an oyster farm, Island Creek had a prominent goal in mind: “Grow the world’s finest oysters and have the best possible time doing it.” The Island Creek family has flourished and prospered since then, establishing a promising foundation and trendy oyster bar in Beantown. Although, they always stay true to their roots, living each and every day with their mission close to their hearts: “Grow. Give. Enjoy. That’s the Island Creek way.”
