    This place sucks! Wanted to try the food but the worst possible customer service made it impossible.

    The Spanish octopus was incredible. What a gem in the North End. Absolutely worth the wait.

    Hot lobster roll is obvi a must. I suggest going splitsies with the mussels so you can dip the fries in that scrumptious sauce!

  • Chris M.

    Surprised at how bland the lobster roll was after all the Foursquare tips suggesting otherwise. 😣

    The lobster roll with butter!

    The hot buttered lobster roll lives up to the hype

  • Jonah

    Everything is delicious, especially the Johnnycake. Also finish the meal with the light Hamachi Ceviche. Perfect place for a date. Make sure to show up at least 2 hours early to get on the wait list.

    Pretty much any dish here will blow your socks off. So good!

    It's hard to get a seat at this amazing restaurant. Go 30min before closing and grab a seat at the bar...indulge in all the awesomeness!! Lobster Rolls!

    The wait is terrible, but the food is worth it! Best oysters and lobster roll I've ever had

    Alice Eunjin · July 27
  • Carlos A.

    The most overrated place ever, 2 hrs waiting list, bad service, good oyster bar but that's it. The clam chowder couldn't be worst because is impossible, the best of the lobster roll are the fries.

    Carlos Ayala · July 25

    Great Connecticut style lobster roll (hot butter,no mayo) w/ large chunks of succulent lobster meat.Priced at $29,it's well worth the penny for the quality and portion.Clam chowder is Italian style.

    Waits can be painful. Ask your waiter for wine pairings!

    Lobster Roll!

    Matthew · July 13
  • Mayee

    The wait is always at least an hour. Go there and leave your name and cell number then go to nearby resto for some wine and calamari and wait to be called.

    The real New England lobster roll is served cold. If you like warm lobster with butter - get a lobster and enjoy it with butter (with your hands, bib and all)

    Everything we had was excellent, but the Neptune Johnnycake is next-level. An absolute must-try!

    Jay Porter · July 6
  • Kristin

    Ok! Best lobster roll! This place is very small. Avg wait according to waitress is between 1-3 hrs on non holiday weekends. Get there early to put your name down. They will call when table is ready.

  • Gabriela G.

    We had to wait for 2 hours but cheeseburger with fried oysters, garlic mayo and relish was incredible!

  • Gabriela G.

    Hot lobster roll! The best!

  • Felipe G.

    Famous for their lobster roll with warm butter. Try it here, but everything else is great, too. Prepare for a long wait!

    Overrated! Clam chowder is too watery and the lobster meat is Just chewy, nothing much

    Jia Ning · June 27
  • Gretchen S.

    Oysters, and warm lobster roll are tremendous!

    Gretchen Schramm · June 26
  • Kyle H.

    Not even a contest. Best lobster roll on planet earth. Come here to enjoy the cozy atmosphere, fresh and diverse oyster selection, but of course the LOBSTER ROLL! Butter style is my preference.

    I've never had such a simple and delicious lobster roll. It's lobster and butter on a roll. Neptune has created the Platonic ideal.

  • Shivesalive

    The lobster roll is fabulous and goes perfectly with their fries and a couple dozen oysters!

    Worth the hype. The lobster rolls looked absolutely legit, but I couldn't pass up the scallops with duck confit. Worth it.

    Chris Pollone · April 11
  • Ellen S.

    The wait is worth it. Get the sampler plate with anchovies (seriously) and a hot lobster roll.

    Ellen S. P. · March 26
  • Amanda P.

    Hands down the best lobster roll I've ever had. I made an hour detour on my back to NJ to stop here for a lobster roll. Well worth it. A little pricy but worth every penny.

    Worth the wait. Put down your name and head to Ward 8 for some cocktails. Oysters + lobster roll with butter + vino verde for the win.
