Reviews for The Barking Crab

Cool Boston-y venue with funny, quirky signs everywhere. There were only 2 people working the room, probably due to Covid. As Boston dining is just re-opening, they were not too busy. I had the lobster bisque which was excellent, came with oyster crackers and then I had the mussels appetizer for my meal. The bisque was much better, wouldn't recommend the mussels. :( C had a lobster roll and he enjoyed it! It was a good place to come in from the cold air.

Quintessential Boston experience! Highly recommend for both residents and tourists. Especially in the spring and summertime this is delicious getaway. Hopefully things will be back to normal for the warm weather temps & more relaxed outdoor dining! Also, the surrounding Seaport District has undergone a spectacular transformation.

Loved coming here! The tables were properly distanced and everything is disposable which makes it very sanitary. The waiter was super nice and the food was amazing! The lobster was tender, juicy, and absolutely delicious. The butter wasn't even necessary because of how yummy the lobster was. Needless to say, best lobster I have ever tried!
