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...

  • A&B American StyleGet the oysters (duh). And, for serious, don't miss the hot lobster roll. Both go great with our Pepper Sauce (BYO)

  • John I.Best seafood in the US. Go on a weekday around 3-4PM to get seated without waiting. Get the scallops, the buttermilk johnnycake, and, of course, the lobster roll (I like it cold with mayo). Amazing.

    55555 by John I.

  • Jake S.Order the P.E.I. mussels to start. The key is to get a bite of the sausage with a bite of mussel. Plus the broth is decadently delicious.

    55555 by Jake S.

  • MollyScallop entree kills it. Clean plate club here

    55555 by Molly

  • Julia B.My favorite spot in Boston for fresh seafood -- make sure to try any of the specials, especially if they have Nantucket bay scallops

    55555 by Julia B.

  • Sae Young C.The best lobster roll in town. Put your names at 4PM to get the table around 7PM but still worth the wait.

  • Jacob S.Check in before 7 p.m. at the latest and get on the list. While it can take an hour or more to get a table, they'll call you when your table is ready so you can explore North End while you wait.

    33333 by Fèıbianė K.

    55555 by Isa L.

  • Sarah A.Lobster roll (hot with butter) is excellent. Head in around 5:15-5:30 if you want to get seated right away on a week day, otherwise wait in line you will!

    55555 by Sarah A.

  • Amelia H.Skip the crab claws, they weren't very tasty but the oysters are fantastic.

    55555 by Amelia H.

  • Todd K.It's hard to describe how good the seafood was here. From the raw clams and oysters to the scallops/duck and lobsta roll, it was fantastic!

    55555 by Todd K.

    33333 by CaraMia

  • Connor F.Be prepared to wait for a frighteningly long time, but when you finally do sit down, it'll be worth it for the hamachi ceviche, hot lobster roll, and fried Ipswich clams you order and devour.

    55555 by Connor F.

  • Kenneth T.My favorite oyster, aside from the oft-one-dimensional salty Massachusetts breeds, is the perennially-on-menu Vancouver Kusshi oysters, low salt and tasting strongly of cucumber.

    55555 by Kenneth T.

  • Bruce L.Try the lobster roll cold. With a side of butter.

    33333 by Bruce L.

  • Yee L.Very small restaurant with very friendly staff. hot lobster roll is a must, though I would suggest to get it without the roll as the roll is too buttery for my liking. Best to come with small group.

    55555 by Yee L.

  • Mateus d.Excelente Lobster Roll ! Definately coming back to try the cold one( w mayo). Big selection of Oysters, Shrimps and Crabs from the Raw Bar. The Crab Claws were really good ! Excellent wines as well !

    55555 by John C.

    55555 by Kare C.

    55555 by Bonobos

  • Matthew H.Try the Nantucket Wild Striped Bass - Insanely good. Flakey, flavorful fish with amazing ratatouille and shrimp that all work perfectly. (via @Foodspotting)

    55555 by Matthew H.

  • Wil E.This tiny Boston oyster bar is making some big waves. Neptune Oyster's raw bar and dining room seats only 44 patrons, so landing a table in this small venue will take some effort.

    55555 by Wil E.

  • Devina S.Warm lobster roll all the way...perfect for a cold New England day!

    55555 by Devina S.

  • Steve P.Johnny Cakes. Holy smokes awesome.

    55555 by Steve P.

    55555 by Steve P.

  • LaurenDefinitely worth the wait! The only place with HOT lobster rolls, which are WAY better than regular cold lobster rolls.. If you Love lobster then you MUST try one of these! Expensive but worth it!

    55555 by Lauren

  • Leo R.Order the mussels & extra bread...the broth is AMAZING.

    55555 by Leo R.

  • 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.

    22222 by Brodie R.

  • Shaun S.I can't tell you its worth the wait - its the Balthazar of Boston - but the oysters are amazing, the hot mussels a must and the staff have it down to an art. Put your name down, take a walk & enjoy

    55555 by Shaun S.

  • Justin H.Hot. Lobster. Roll. Give it a little squeeze and let the butter drip out the back.

    55555 by Justin H.

  • Connor F.The hot lobster roll is worth waiting for— delicious brioche-style bun, tender lobster covered in butter, and world-class french fries on the side. The fried clams are also great.
