Barking Crab Boston

Barking Crab is a landmark Boston seafood restaurant celebrating our 22nd 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.

"Good food but more of a bar than a restaurant. Service was extremely slow at first but got better. No selections of bourbon. So loud I could not hear my friends sitting across from me.
It's a one time experience for me. Not going back."

"The Barking Crab is a landmark and a place people go to visit because it's been there forever. As a foodie, I was excited to try it but severely disappointed by both the service and the food itself. Our waitress was rude and not helpful at all. The food was okay, nothing to write home about. My crab cakes were kind of cold. The crab was not described accurately by the waitress (does she know the menu?) and didn't taste particularly fresh. Only the deck was open even though the actual restaurant was empty and I was freezing during my meal because we were only surrounded by plastic tarp. All in all, I would not go back."

"I purchased a GC via e-mail and received an e-mail confirmation but did not receive a card or certificate by mail. When we went to the restaurant they did not honor the GC even though we had an e-mail from their corporate office complete with an order ID. Now we have to deal with getting a refund --- hopefully."

"Delicious seafood caught that morning. Waitress helped explain steps of first time cracking into a lobster for our sons so they could learn. Helpful and friendly!"

"I had heard great things about The Barking Crab but our party of three was underwhelmed by the food. The prices are extremely high for the environment and food quality. We each tried a different entree along with the lobster bisque which is supposed to be "award winning" and none of us thought our meals were Zagat rated."

"Although considered by Bostonians as a tourist trap the food was very good and the service excellent. We ordered the bowl with crabs, corn and cole slaw. Very fresh and delicious.
There are not many good options for those who does not like sea food. Our waiter Gabriel was very good.
