Barking Crab Boston

Barking Crab is a landmark Boston seafood restaurant celebrating our 21st Birthday. Located on the Fort Point Channel in Boston's Seaport District, The Barking Crab features fresh crabs, lobsters, and day-boat fish brought in each morning. We feature traditional New England fare served in a funky urban clam-shack setting. We have a full bar including over 15 regional micro brews, cocktails, and an approachable value-priced wine list. We are family friendly and a short 2 minute walk from the Boston Children's Museum. Other area attractions include the Institute of Contemporary Art, Harpoon Brewery, the Harbor-walk, Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, and Boston's Financial District.

"Go place to bring visitors to Boston for lobster if they don't have time to head our of the city. Always fresh perfectly prepared lobster. Great fish and chips too. Feels like a lobster shack but it's downtown Boston. Nice in the summer with the outdoor seating on the water."

"Third time I've been to Boston and Third time I've been to The Barking Crab. I would give it 6 stars if I could. We found it on Man vs Food or Guy Fiere, can't remember. Either way it was a great FIND! Fresh food, decent prices, ambiance, good service. Nearby parking garage. Water view, you feel like you are on a boat in the harbor. Very charming/romantic. No outdoor dining. I don't drink wine."

"My sister and her family and I go a late lunch reservation (1:30 pm) on New Year's Day. We were running late but placed the call and were told it wouldn't be a problem. I had forgotten that there is absolutely no parking anymore unless you pay $30 at the nearest garage for two hours! That just stinks and with the high rises and retail shops going in right on top of the restaurant, I fear for it's very existence. We were seated immediately in the indoor area but waited too long for our waitress. I believe that she was slammed with multiple parties at the same time. She finally came to take our drink order and wasn't informed of the party next to us that were seated before us. We ordered water for all and their signature margarita made very spicy with salt. She ran back with four waters when there were five of us and told me that the bartender was looking for the infused vodka (I know she meant tequila). Again, she was given yet another table. MY drink and water finally came out but there was no salt on the rim. The soups came quickly as did the rest of the food we ordered at the same time. Lucky for us because the two kids in our party were not in good moods to begin with. All was good but I think the crab cakes were overly salty. Management needs to help the hosts, waitresses and bartenders by making a plan and being sure that staffing is correctly coordinated. Since it is still a favorite, we will be back."

"We hadn't been to the Barking Crab since they gentrified the neighborhood - - wow, how the area has changed! Everything is becoming very upscale which make the Crab the place to be. As always the ambiance is sort of shabby but the restaurant is warm and cozy and always packed with people having fun. Our server was perky, friendly and very helpful in making suggestions. The chowder is excellent - we always say it's the best in Boston. Crab cakes and crab cake sliders were both very good - - maybe the buns could have been heated on the sliders? Seafood casserole was rich, hot and hearty - delicious on a cool night. They have a great beer list and are known for their Bloody Mary's. We had an excellent meal and will definitely return the next time we're in Boston."

"I met my friend who was visiting from Florida. She was taking me out for my birthday and we decided to go to the Barking Crab because i wanted her to experience the amazing New England sea food. We had a blast. The restaurant was amazing, the food was to die for and our server was so nice and funny and he really made me feel special for my birthday. I cannot wait to go back when it is warmer outside to really enjoy the view of the water!"

"Just amazing ! King Size plater -10lb WHOLE Lobster and 4 lb Crab legs was a hit ! We spent my husbands birthday with our family and we're happy as a clam ! The only minus it was pretty chilly sitting next to the door and calamity portion was to small. Besides I Highly recommend for seafood lovers ... Oh , don't forget to order oysters !"

"Food is excellent. When I walked into the patio section I would not have expected the quality and presentation I received. Only thing is the portion was small for the money. $25 for five scallops. There were a few characters at the bar that had more colorful language than I prefer. But they were not there long and the ambiance returned to normal. Service was great."
