This is one of those places you have to visit at least once when in Boston. I will go back everytime I’m there. The Oyster/Clam/Lobster bar is awesome! They have descrptions of each and every individual item on the Raw Bar, super helpful. The staff was knowledgeable and very friendly and the food was excellent. I had a few things from the Raw Bar and then a Lobster Roll with a Salad. The Salad was as good as the Lobster Roll, hard to believe but true. The only negative would be its only beer and wine, no cocktails! But not enough to change my thoughts on this place….Awesome Spot!

You will probably have to wait, but it is worth it. If you have never been here before, definitely try the lobster roll and some fresh oysters. I had the clam chowder, Lobster roll, 6 fresh oysters and two guiness. This was probably the only meal I have spent around $70 and thought it was worth it.

Arrived at 11:15am for 11:30am opening and there was already a line. Got in though. Place not big so go early.
Oysters were delicious but the lobster rolls were fantastic. Best lobster roll I ever had. Worth the wait and the price!

I have enjoyed the Neptune several times and the oysters are spot on ever time. Great selection of cold water gems from around the globe. Went early and sat at the bar this trip,great wine selections and the server was excellent. Don't let the line waiting outside turn you away, just give hostess your cell number and hit the nearby pubs next door. They text you when your table is ready. It's the best raw bar I've ever visited. While in Boston, it's a must if your a oyster fan.
Ps, not one shell spur in the 4 dozen we enjoyed!

Hands down, this was a superb choice for seafood. Went first with a local for the oysters (expansive menu) and the lobster roll (hot with melted butter is the way to go); and came back for a second meal of . . . . what else? Lobster roll and the anchovies cocktail. Yum, yum, yum. Everything is so fresh and delicate tasting. Sit at the bar, talk up the staff and enjoy a great meal!
