The food was amazing...the server not so much. Space is tight so call ahead and be ready to wait for a spot, but worth it if you have the time~

Like the overall atmosphere as a small restaurant, but it's worth waiting for half an hour to enjoy the fresh oyster!

It is small. It is in the north end. The food is great. But it does not take reservations so the wait is very long. We were told two hours. We walked around and then came back to a restaurant that was so crowded it made us wonder why we had not stopped somewhere else. If you go pick an... More

Everything was wonderful; great wine/bellinis. Fantastic oyster, lobster roll and the best Clam Chowder!

This place is small but a quality seafood place, thus crowd :). I had lobster roll which was super fresh and delicious. Buttery warm is preferable. Quality of fries can be improved. Since place is crowded, just manage your time to get the place.

we got here about 5 pm on a Thurday and got in right away. If we had gotten here too much later we would have had to wait. Even though it was really busy, we never felt rushed. The waitress gave us some recommendations and suggestions as we wanted to try some new things. We enjoyed trying a variety of... More

Allow for a 1-2 hour wait. The seafood is fresh and creative. It is a very small restaurant with bar seating. They have around 20 varieties of Oysters. The Cioppino is excellent. Wide menu for such a small restaurant. Must do restaurant if you are in Boston

Got there 15 minutes before the restaurant opened and waited in line outside. Seated at the bar - extremely close seating and could barely move. It was made worth it by two amazing lobster rolls. I ordered cold, my husband ordered hot, and we shared. No crazy seasonings to overpower - just huge chunks of fresh, sweet lobster meat, which... More

We waited for over an hour to get a seat in this tiny, cozy spot. They took our phone number so we could wander in the area while we waited. The neighbourhood has some nice shops. The restaurant is not a romantic spot. It is so busy and the seating is close. However, oh my gosh, the food is excellent.... More

My wife and I met our daughter who works in the area at the Neptune for the fabled lobster roll. We left our name with hostess who called us in 15 minutes (around 1pm) and seated us at the 4top by the door. Tip..on a cold day, ask to be seated further inside as you'll encounter morons holding the door... More
