The Barking Crab

Welcome to The Barking Crab

Located on Boston’s historic Fort Point Channel at the gateway to the Seaport District, The Barking Crab has become one of the city’s best-loved meeting and eating spots. The Barking Crab opened in 1994 as an outdoor summer restaurant. After proven success the restaurant expanded into the adjoining Neptune Lobster and Seafood Market, featuring a wood-burning stove for cozy winter nights and becoming a Boston landmark restaurant all-year-round.
