Established in 2004, Neptune Oyster is exemplary in its East Coast raw bar perfection. The simple, subway tiled interior gleams with retro charm. While many patrons focus on the raw bar, those who opt for substantial fare enjoy one of the city's most renowned lobster rolls, served hot with butter or cold with mayo. Other standouts include juicy burgers topped with fried oysters, and composed entrees like a whole Rockport mackerel served Veracruz-style. Given the cramped environs, expect to wait out the door for one of the marble-topped tables or a seat at the bar.

You'll easily pass this hole-in-the-wall-looking restaurant in the North End if you're not paying close attention. This tiny little oyster bar has some of the most amazing seafood in all of Boston, if not New England. Though it's on the pricier side, the food is beyond worth it. 


Don't let the tiny restaurant size fool you; Neptune Oyster is one of the best spots in the city!  The lobster rolls are incredible and don't forget to wash them down with their famous oysters.  The only downside is the wait to be seated, but it’s worth it!
