Oyster Bars: Neptune Oyster is the oyster lover's oyster bar. Neptune's selection of east and west coast oysters are impressive. With sleek décor this no frills oyster bar is the perfect spot to sit and sip champagne while dozens of these fresh mollusks arrive before your eyes. The oysters may be amazing, but Neptune does not disappoint with its entrees either. An award winning lobster roll, and seasonal specialties take this oyster bar beyond basic.

Lunch: Intimate and old school cool, Neptune sports a pressed-tin ceiling, floor tiles and marble-topped tables. Located as it is on the North End, the restaurant probably doesn't shock first-timers with its Italian takes on fresh fish and seafood. That's not to say they don't leave impressed by Old Country classics like cioppino and more regionalized endeavors such lobster rolls. It's the raw bar, though, that truly sets this place apart, thanks to seasonal ditties like Ipswich clams (fried, of course) and a dozen or so varieties of oysters.
