Neptune Oyster

Small and unassuming from the outside, off the crowded tourist laden path of the North End on Salem Street. Neptune Oyster is a gem! A good selection of east and west coast oysters, reasonably priced. The entrees are a bit on the pricey side, but don’t skimp on portion size. The lobster spaghettini special is a big bowl of pasta and a generous serving of lobster (and at $38 it better be).

This is a photo of the half I brought home!

The scallops are to die for here. The menu changes seasonally, but the ones I had came with a port sauce and a fontina gratin ($26). So very very delicious.
There isn’t much seating (18 seats at the bar and 26 at tables) so come early to avoid the wait, but even if there is a wait, it’s worth it for a change of pace from the regular Italian and Seafood of the neighborhood.
The service is top-notch, and the decor is cute and a throwback to the old days of the neighborhood.
