The Lobster Roll and a salad… that's what you NEED to order and you will enjoy. We lived in Boston for 2 years and tried a dozen places for their lobster roll. This continues to be our favorite in Boston.

We took a chance and ate here while waiting for North Station train. Had lobster tacos (special that day and had quite a bit if kick-too much spice for me) and clam chowder (this was bland and needed salt and pepper). Place was very crowded...More

My husband typically does the research and picks our places to eat- he does an amazing job and the Neptune Oyster was no different- yummmm! Everything we had was delicious- oysters and clams, but my favorite was the uni toast!!!

Really great oyster bar that is definitely worth your time. We went at ~4pm for a (super) late lunch and didn't have a wait, the place was almost empty. The oysters were great, and the ability to order different types and compare them was really...More

We went at an off peak hour and waited about 15 minutes, which was not too long compared to some of the stories we'd heard from friends. Like everyone else says, you leave a number and they call you back, then they seat you in...More

Took a walking tour of Boston and ended up here. It came across to me as a neighborhood place (I mean that positively). Crowded, bustling, a line at the door (we arrived before 4, so we didn't have to wait). It was my first lobster...More

I waited at first about 30 minutes to get seated. Unfortunately I think now it was neither worth the waiting time nor the price. I had a lot better food and drinks in Boston so far – and this has been the most expensive.

Food was good, but the service was not great as they were constantly too busy. They also do not accept reservations. if packed, you have to leave your phone number and stay close...however, they won't call back an international phone number and we were from...More

We thought we were being smart and going early. At 5:30, we stood outside in a line to simply put in our name. It was a 2 hour wait--in the cold. We walked around, had a drink elsewhere, and finally were seated at the bar!...More

I've lived in Boston for 19 years and finally had the chance to visit Neptune. What a treat it was...Oysters and Octopus Cocktail Apps were perfect. Though the highlight of the meal was the Cioppino and I must say it's the best I've had. Perfect...More

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

They say they can not accommodate to go orders. Even if you eat there and ask for an extra to take home, they won’t. They say their kitchen does not accommodate the ability to do so.

I don't know for sure, but it is a very tightly squeezed space, and I really cannot imagine how a high chair could fit.
