Barking Crab is known for good local seafood in an outdoor, casual setting. Seating overlooks the channel. The restaurant has a loyal following, some of whom would assert it's the best seafood in Boston. While that's a steep claim in the seafood-crazy market of Boston, most would agree it's tasty, local and fresh. Certainly a classic clambake menu.
When to go: Tops in the summer but open year-round.
Reservations/Waiting times: Waits can get long on summer nights, particularly on the weekends so either plan to go early or ask about reservations if you're coming with a large crowd.
: None. Everybody's casual. One tip, particularly early or late in the summer season, you may want to bring a light jacket to wear after dark when it can get a cool.
Oh, and prepare to wear a bib and STILL make a mess.
