We come to this restaurant every time we visit Boston. It has never disappointed. There is always a wait and they don’t accept reservations.

I was on a 4 night business trip in Boston and ate several different Lobster Rolls each day... Neptune Oyster's Lobster Roll is the BEST and BIGGEST! I opted for the warm buttery version, which is perhaps the most incredible thing I had eaten in...More

Went here for my first lobster roll and it did not disappoint. We got the hot version with butter and it was to die for. Great atmosphere and service!

Waited 45 minutes on a Friday afternoon. They take your telephone number to call when table is almost ready so we took the opportunity explore the North End. Note: It is a tiny place and you might share a table. Oysters were great. For high...More

Came here with the anticipation of trying the “non stop talked about” lobster roll. UNBELIEVABLY AMAZING! we are from Tennessee, so we don’t get to try authentic clam Chowda, every place we have gone in Boston we have tried the clam Chowda. Although, we were...More

Enjoyed a delicious seafood meal this evening at Neptune Oyster. Started off with a dozen oysters. The Katama oysters were hands down the best of the six types we had. Finally settled on the warm lobster rolls to follow the oysters. These rolls were loaded...More

We ate delicious oysters, seafood chowder and swordfish. The place is very cozy and the staff is very friendly.

Epically delicious oysters. And one of the few good customer service experiences I had in Boston too. They offer a wonderful variety of oysters, scrumptious clam chowder, and some lovely bottles of wine.

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

the restaurant does not take phone reservations, so you have to show up and put your name down. The wait can be very long - 3 hours and 20 minutes when we went. Tables are not well spaced, so the place is crowded and can be... More
