    No trip to Boston is complete without a stop at this South End staple. Don’t let the $29 price tag deter you--this meaty roll is topped with lemon and chive-spiked mayo and a touch of celery. Read more

    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.

    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.
