Barking Crab: "Great Food... Bad Parking!" Barking Crab Tip by MatthewMetcalfe

Barking Crab, Boston: 8 reviews and 5 photos

  Outside the Barking Crab
by MatthewMetcalfe

The Barking Crab serves up a variety of seafood. An excellent selection of draft beers make it even better.

The location right on the river overlooking downtown is nice but the view is a little rundown given all teh work going on in Boston.

Parking was difficult around 1:00 on a Monday and we ended up making a couple of go arounds until a spot was available. Still it was worth the wait.

Favorite Dish: The Clam Chowder was outstanding. Nice and Creamy with plenty of Clam and Potatoes. Some have complained of too many onions but I didn't notice it (and I don't dig on onions)

Also try the Fried Scallops or a bucket of steamers.

Draft Harpoon makes a great side dish.
