Emperor has clothes (they’re just a little snotty)

Went to Neptune Oyster in the late afternoon on Friday and sat at the bar.

I had 12 oysters (4 different types) that were very fresh. The cocktail sauce was runny as it usually is at Neptune.

While I was eating I couldn’t help, but notice how poorly the young man behind the bar was treating people as they came in the door. He was a mix of slightly snotty with a medium dose of condescension that was consistent throughout my meal.

Next I had the fried clams that were really good. Perfectly fried fresh clams are pretty hard to beat.

Finally I had the warm lobster roll. The lobster meat was just like it was on my visit in January, ok, but not particularly tasty with a tendency to being a little mushy.

After this last visit I think I’m done with Neptune. It get expensive fast regardless of what one has and the people that work there are not very friendly either.
