    Go Early or Elsewhere

    Eaten here more times than any place in Boston. Had lobster rolls all up the coast and there is not a better place. Small, very small and only have eaten at the bar... Always have oysters, HOT lobster rolls..none better - sorry just fact. Busy always, must be some reason, the staff are great once you get seated.. my wife says the chowder is fabulous and surprised how many people order other things than the lobster roll.. the french fries can be greasy but if you go early seem to be less so....I'm getting hungry. Forgot - great deal on sparkling wine. The BEST.

    Lives up to the hype!

    I tried the cold and hot lobster rolls and they were insane. It's worth the wait.

    Great lobster rolls

    This is my choice location for hot lobster rolls in Boston. They have a good rotating selection of oysters as well. The restaurant is slightly cramped, but has a really nice new england feel. i love going here on a rainy afternoon. The seafood entrees are good, but in my opinion overpriced for the size/quality of the dishes. Bottom line, get some raw oysters a glass of wine and a hot lobster roll and you won't have anything to complain about.

    The best seafood in Boston?

    Best clam chowder in the city! Very good raw bar with excellent chucking. A true informal spot with great food and good value. May just be the best seafood rest. In our Boston!

    Great Raw Bar with a Parisian Feel

    Went to Neptune Oyster while in town for business. Hour wait at 6pm. Very small and tight room reminded me of cramped bistros in Paris, but in a good way. Neptune is maybe 30-40 seats including a long marble bar and was packed the whole time we were there. The oysters are proudly displayed up front in the window and they were as fresh as could be. Our table tried Island Creek, Wellfleet, Bee's River, and Summersides, along with cherrystone clams, crab claws, razor clams, and in shell sea urchins. Pretty amazing. We also found the wine list to be impressive for such a small place. Drank a Muscadet with the raw bar stuff. For apps we shared PEI mussels with curry-cashew broth (some of the best mussels ive had), fried ipswich clams (super light and not greasy, great tartar sauce), white anchovies with apples and manchego cheese, and the tuna ribbons salad which was excellent. Our server was very friendly and knew quite abit about the wine and menu, although he was very busy. Entrees were equally impressive. Two people at the table had maine lobster rolls at the suggestion of our server. One was hot with butter, the other cold with mayo. Both were said to be the best they have had, but looking around the hot with butter seems to be Neptune's thing. Looked much bigger than Mary's or Pearl Oyster's version in NYC. I ordered the cioppino with clams, mussels, head on shrimp, and mixed fish. Served on saffron rice with spicy garlic broth it was simple and spectacular. Cleaned the bowl. Other person in our party had the Scallops with duck confit, squash, blue cheese, and hazelnuts. Looked very good and he wiped his plate. Table had a bottle of sancerre and a bottle of cerasuola (sp?) with dinner. No dessert or coffee so finished with briccetto (also sp?) suggested by our server, a red dessert wine. The bill was pretty hefty for four people, but everything we had was very good. Thankfully it was a business meal. Overall our party had a great time at Neptune Oyster and would love to have one in NYC.
