2023 Best Lobster Roll

Neptune Oyster

Nineteen years in, Neptune still draws lines of eager diners daily, most seeking the lobster roll. It’s no mystery why: The generous portion of meat, served hot with butter (our pick) or cold with mayo, spills over the sides of a toasted brioche roll that’s sturdy enough to contain the meat but mild enough to let the lobster shine.
