    The hen of the woods is an amazingly balanced dish, on par with courses from the best restos in the world.

    Oysters and ceviche. The rest is either deep fried or comes with mayo, French fries and ketchup. A waste of good seafood in my opinion.

    Barbara Lynch is probably the best chef in Boston and definitely the most popular. Consider this South End joint her highbrow answer to an East Coast oyster bar.

    Jeff Fournier, chef of 51 Lincoln, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Oysters. Read more

    Lobster roll is small and lacks seasoning. Neptune oyster still has the best lobster rolls. Didn't enjoy how the tuna tartar was prepared. Felt like I was eating raw tuna from a bowl of soup.

    Awesome oysters and lobster rolls. Well chosen wine list, but could use a few more Chablis

    Great oyster selection and certainly fresh. Can't go wrong with any of their fried options either. I would not recommend coming here for their entrees, over priced small portions, and mine was cold.

    Get a mix of classic and seasonal everything. The servers know their stuff - ask questions. An awesome bottle list too, perfect for seafood.

    Our server was fantastic, and she was very helpful in choosing the best oysters of the night. The red snapper, swordfish, halibut and cod were cooked well, but lacked that special something.

    Seems odd to say at an Oyster bar but the mascarpone Mac n Cheese is phenomenal and a must order. Wow.

    We tried several varieties of oysters, and each were fantastic, standout being the Ninigrets from RI (of course, my home state!). Great apps and sides, my rock cod entree rocked, service was stellar.
