A very lively restaurant! We tried a number of different oysters but all were very heavy metallic taste. Menu have many different choices, such as fish and pasta. Services was super friendly. Ambiance was great for friends gathering. Valet parking is available.

Because the owner has a direction connection to the oyster farms, I have never been disappointed with the selection and quality of the raw oysters. Or, if you want cooked, get an oyster slider. They have a great menu of beers, wines, whiskeys, etc. This...More

I know that they have a Sunday brunch menu and they open at 10:30 AM on Sundays. I don't know what time their brunch runs until. Sorry.

I echo the VICKING comment above- just say you're going to the hotel, joining guests for dinner, whatever. Commonwealth Hotel is attached to Island Creek Oyster Bar.
