Everyone in my group got the lobster roll as it's highly recommended and it did not disappoint. The lobster roll is $29, so it's definitely on the expensive end, but it's full of warm lobster and you can get it with butter or mayo. The...More

We made sure to come early for the oysters. I love that they described each oyster and that we could just write down the number of oysters we wanted in this "oyster tally sheet." The oysters were delicious! I would have wanted to try the...More

Get there early and don't look at the pricing. Everything here is a must try. We had a full selection of oysters and the warm (with butter) lobster rolls. I was also lucky to pickup one of the local ciders while I visited. Space is...More

Reason enough to come to Boston. I had the Maine lobster roll buttered with house Chardonnay it was wonderful. This meal was the best in my life delicious. Oysters were the freshest I've ever had. Vast variety.

Neptune Oyster is by far one of my favorite places in the North End. The wait for lunch was about an hour but definitely worth it. We went on a Monday and got the Lobster Spaghetti special which was absolutely amazing. The service was great...More

I was afraid to even try to get in this place given the reported wait times. We arrived at 2 and were seated immediately on a Tuesday afternoon. The menu is limited (which is usually a good sign) and the food is good. The burger...More

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

the restaurant does not take phone reservations, so you have to show up and put your name down. The wait can be very long - 3 hours and 20 minutes when we went. Tables are not well spaced, so the place is crowded and can be... More
