  • The Barking Crab has some of the best -- and biggest -- seafood dishes Boston has to offer. -Adam Richman, Man v Food Nation
  • There may be no place in Boston better to be on a warm Summer night with someone you love. Or even someone you might someday.
  • Order some clams and a bucket of beers and enjoy the outdoors.
  • The food is great but I waited 90 minutes for a table for 3. The staff didn't seemed concerned. It's a total tourist spot and don't expect silverware either.
  • I spent a lot of money here. I eat a ton of food. I regret nothing. It tasted that good.
  • For some great seafood, get over to the Barking Crab. The Fried Fish sandwich is yummy!
  • If using malt vinegar for fries/fried fish, make sure the "shaker top" is on the bottle; otherwise you'll have drowned your food in the liquid. If available on draught, try the Barking Crab White.
  • Definitely a tourist spot but with great food. The naked lobster roll is awesome. Lots of lobster without all the work. Beware of the bathrooms, though. They're tiny and scary.
  • With outdoor dining overlooking Fort Port Channel, it's a great gathering place for a celebration, and boasts thick clam chowder and a selection of fresh fish daily.
  • Oysters + Lobster. Wow.
  • Good food, but way over-priced tourist trap. Check out other seafood places before considering Barking Crab.
  • Portions are HUGE! Fabulous!!!
  • The line moves very fast
  • Check out the 10 pound lobsters in the tank. I bet you can't eat them!
  • Denemeye degerrr
  • Really popular place! We'd have to wait for 15 minutes to get in! But is really costed it, because the dishes was delicious, staff very friendly. Sure to come again.
  • Huge lobster roll. They also have a HUGE lobster you can eat....if you can afford it. Decent beer selection, but order at the bar if you can, it gets busy!
  • Located on the edge of Bostons historic Fort Point Channel, The Barking Crab has become one of the citys best-loved meeting and eating spots.
  • Finally good seafood in Boston
  • Have the naked lobster roll! YUMMY!
