Island Creek Oyster Bar, Burlington 

What’s Unique: No pancakes or French toast. The seafood-heavy menu includes popular lunch favorites like fish & chips and Ethel’s Lobster Roll, alongside an oyster slider, an oyster banh mi, and a yellowfin tuna roll. But they also serve some of the traditional brunch items such as maple sage sausage eggs Bennedict, scrambled eggs, and omelets. 

Insider tip: Order a buttermilk biscuit for the table, and don’t miss the pastry basket heaped with treats like strawberry rhubarb coffee cake, bear claws, mocha brioche, cranberry almond scones, and chocolate berry muffins.

What’s New: The restaurant just unveiled a new outdoor patio.

300 District Ave., Burlington, 781-761-6500,
