Why did we dine here? – Neptune Oyster is a popular seafood restaurant in Boston’s North End. There is a wait there everyday, and a super long one during holidays and weekends. We finally got up the courage to give it a try. We had a 2 hour wait on the weekend.

Cuisine – Seafood
Location – Boston North End

Verdict – Neptune Oyster does serve up very good seafood. Fresh, reasonably priced, nothing wrong with the food.

One and done, you can get this quality seafood elsewhere without waiting this long and dining in loud cramped conditions. The tourists will keep this place full..

Neptune Oyster Food Picks:

Neptune Oyster Boston ahi tuna

Tuna Crostini ($17) was ahi tuna done right, with just the right amount of citrus. Large portion.

Neptune Oyster Boston Lobster Salad

Lobster salad with sea greens ($33) is not cheap, but its an arty dish full of lobster.

Neptune Oyster Boston Clam Chowder

Clam chowder ($13) is freshly made, a big bland, but reasonable.

Neptune Oyster Boston Lobster Roll

Lobster roll ($32) hot buttered styled. Lots of lobster although some where a bit too chopped up. Good brioche bun, lots of salad.

Neptune Oyster Boston Raw oysters clams crab

Raw Oysters – Chatham ($2.90 each), Wellfleet ($3), Little necks ($2.50). Cherrystone clams ($2.70), crab claws ($11), shrimp cocktail ($3.75). Everything was fresh as expected. Almost any real seafood place will have this.
