Reviews for The Barking Crab

First, remember that this is a bar. It’s a pretty chill environment. No hoity, toity. It’s actually pretty refreshing as you sit in what appears to be a rustic setting. There is a sign that says “if you ask us to turn down the music, we will respectfully decline. This is a bar. Trust me, it wasn’t me that asked. The food! Do not hesitate. The food is fresh and delicious. Check out my pictures. This lobster roll had big chunks, in fact a whole piece of claw meat. full review

Barking Crab certainly is worth a stop while exploring the town's waterfront. I enjoyed a New England Clam Chowder and a Naked Lobster Roll along with a cold one. Very delicious all in all, even though being on the pricier side.There was a line, but went quick as some ordered to go. My waitress was very friendly and swift. Enjoyed my stay. Took home some crab cakes I will enjoy in the evening. I'm sure they're just as delicious as the food I had on site.

I fell in love with Boston Seafood Scene!I heard The Barking Crab was the quintessential spot for top tier seafood! I went there to try some of their famous lobster rolls and a dozen of clams! This place was amazing the lobster roll was decadent and full with juicy lobster meat. Their twist on “old bay” seasoning took it over the top! The clams were fresh however I did have better clams before. They still had that fishy after taste to them from not being cleaned full review
