So, let me start by stating - elbow room does not exist here - AT ALL! Prepare to wait a long time - but its worth it. The raw bar is tops. The oysters were schucked correctly, the oysters and clams were super clean, and the shrimp was amazing. The clam chowder - superb (albeit a little thin). The hot butter lobster rolls - to die for! The service was excllent and friendly. All in all - worth it. Make the trip.

I'd heard Neptune Oyster had the best Lobster Roll in Boston. It might be true... mine was amazing, large, hot, moist, buttery and FILLED with lobster meat. Sit at the bar to avoid the wait. Enjoy a local draft beer and delicious fries with your sandwich.

We have to come here every time we come to Boston. Me wife loves oysters and the always have a great selection of the freshest you can get. I had a bowl of PEI mussels that were incredible with sausage, fennel, garlic and pea jus. Paired with a fabulous Nebbiolo rose, fantastic!

Great seafood in the North End. Be prepared to wait. It is a very small restaurant and they don't take reservations. You give them your phone number and then go take a walk to the water or sit in a nearby bar until they call you. We had branzino and a delicious red wine that the server recommended. Was a delicious meal.

Happened on this quaint little place. Its small and packed and full of locals. The menu is very varied (with various seafood and oyster options but even offer a steak). Some of the best appetizers we have ever had with the yellowfin tuna and for a main course North End Cioppino which was out of this world. Nice and spicy too. The North End tends to have a lot of little places of character and this did not disappoint. Make sure this one gets on your list to visit. You won't forget it!
