Blogger Reviews of Neptune Oyster

  • Serial Eclectic on Jul 01, 2013

    The Lobster Roll par excellence can be found in Bostons North End. Generous chunks of fresh Lobster. Melted butter. Grilled and buttered roll. Simple and righteous. Note: worth the wait in line; get there early...

  • HachikaoruGreat oysters here. Long wait on weekends.

    55555 by Hachikaoru

  • المهره الصعبه ماهي لأي خيال SVery popular, thus crowded tiny seafood place. But it is so worth waiting for! Start with chowder and move on to octopus, before you get lost in the amazing oyster selection and enjoy the lobster roll

    55555 by المهره الصعبه ماهي لأي خيال S

  • Neel B.Worth it. Go

    55555 by Neel B.

  • Foxxy BGet here at least an hr before opening. The wait gets INSANE (like min 2 hr for 2 on the weekend). Oyster selection is to die for. Tons of Maine lobster on that hot roll. Service is delightful.

    55555 by Lee Simpson

  • Elena FOrder the damariscotta and wellfleet, and duxbury oysters. The mussels were delicious with crispy bread to enjoy the sauce. Heaven!

    55555 by Elena F

  • Elspeth M.Expensive. But delicious. A+ lobster roll. The sauce in the PEI mussels was also amazing.

    55555 by Elspeth M.

  • Ricky E.Delicious but just don't think worth the wait in a city with so much seafood. Saying that Johnnycakes w Caviar are ridiculous as is the clam chowder. Lobster roll is obviously good.

  • Mike L.Unreal warm lobster roll. And fried Ipswich clams are a home run

    55555 by Mike L.

  • Emilio O.This place sucks! Wanted to try the food but the worst possible customer service made it impossible.

    22222 by Emilio O.

  • Cristina RuizHot lobster roll is obvi a must. I suggest going splitsies with the mussels so you can dip the fries in that scrumptious sauce!

    55555 by Cristina Ruiz

  • Leach MOysters, unsurprisingly.

    55555 by Leach M

  • Kelly A.It's hard to get a seat at this amazing restaurant. Go 30min before closing and grab a seat at the bar...indulge in all the awesomeness!! Lobster Rolls!

    55555 by Kelly A.

  • Alice Eunjin EThe wait is terrible, but the food is worth it! Best oysters and lobster roll I've ever had

    55555 by Alice Eunjin E

  • Carlos A.The most overrated place ever, 2 hrs waiting list, bad service, good oyster bar but that's it. The clam chowder couldn't be worst because is impossible, the best of the lobster roll are the fries.

    33333 by Carlos A.

  • Ting IGreat Connecticut style lobster roll (hot butter,no mayo) w/ large chunks of succulent lobster meat.Priced at $29,it's well worth the penny for the quality and portion.Clam chowder is Italian style.

    55555 by Ting I

  • Howard SWaits can be painful. Ask your waiter for wine pairings!

    55555 by Howard S

  • MayeeMust try their lobster rolls!

    55555 by Mayee

  • MatthewLobster Roll!

    55555 by Matthew

  • MayeeThe real New England lobster roll is served cold. If you like warm lobster with butter - get a lobster and enjoy it with butter (with your hands, bib and all)

    55555 by Mayee

  • MayeeThe wait is always at least an hour. Go there and leave your name and cell number then go to nearby resto for some wine and calamari and wait to be called.

    33333 by Mayee

  • Jay P.Everything we had was excellent, but the Neptune Johnnycake is next-level. An absolute must-try!

  • Jia Ning LOverrated! Clam chowder is too watery and the lobster meat is Just chewy, nothing much

    33333 by Jia Ning L

  • Kyle H.Not even a contest. Best lobster roll on planet earth. Come here to enjoy the cozy atmosphere, fresh and diverse oyster selection, but of course the LOBSTER ROLL! Butter style is my preference.

    55555 by Kyle H.

    55555 by Ellen S.

  • Brodie R.This place is a joke. Supposed 1.5 hour wait = 3 hours. Worst fish tacos ever. 23 bucks and they were tasteless. The clam chowder broth was thin and bland, plus the potatoes were under cooked.
