Based on the collective take from the aforementioned food publication research, here's what '24/7 Tempo' had to say about this unique spot, Neptune Oyster, being named the best seafood restaurant in Massachusetts:

This intimate high-end oyster bar in Boston’s North End may draw long lines, but the wait is worth it. Start with a raw bar platter or perhaps a scallop crudo or johnnycake topped with honey butter, smoked bluefish, and sturgeon caviar. For an entree, choose between such offerings as spicy cioppino with shellfish saffron rice, whole mackerel with Basque pepper stew and fennel, or sea scallops with fava beans, pancetta, and kelp butter.
