This is a lovely restaurant in the North End. We went simply to have some oysters, but also had the lobster roll. It was well worth the wait for the food. We did not expect to get a table without reservations but we were seated...More

This place may be one of my favorite places on the entire planet. Having grown up in the North East, I'm very picky about my seafood and lobster rolls, but YUM. I cannot say enough good things about the hot lobster roll. While a bit...More

I went here with some work colleagues and we all had the lobster rolls and shared an order of fried clams. The food was so good I think we were silent for about the first ten minutes after our food came. I can’t wait to...More

Had the lobster rolls, but honestly it was the apps - the johnnycake and Spanish octopus that blew me away! The wait it ridiculous and the seating is tight. They don't take reservations but they will take down your name and number and call you...More

The Neptune Oyster restaurant in Salem Street is renowned for its fresh seafood. It does not take reservations so if you go, go there before it opens or be prepared for a long wait. We went there at shortly after 5 pm and were told...More

Had the Lobster Rolls here after this restaurant was suggested. Arrived at 4pm and the wait was approximately an hour. However, they call when your table is available; and the wait was worth it. Loved the food and the small but loud space. You’re sat...More

The reastaurant is very small and the line is very long if you want to eat there you have to wait at least an hour. I had a loboster roll...it was very good! It is a little bit expensive but the dish was very abudant.

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

Check out Vito's Tavern on the very next block. Very nice, large selection, great ambiance, though a bit deafening. They get a lot of waiting traffic from Neptune. Neptune calls your cell about 10 minutes or so ahead of your... More
