The History of The Barking Crab

Located on the edge of Boston’s historic Fort Point Channel, The Barking Crab has become one of the city’s best-loved meeting and eating spots. 2007 marks our fourteenth year of operation. Opened in May of 1994 as an outdoor summer restaurant, we were known for our first three years as Venus — Seafood in the Rough. After a successful second season, the restaurant expanded into the adjoining Neptune Lobster and Seafood Market, adding a wood-burning stove and becoming a year-round operation.

Not the “typical” Boston seafood restaurant, The Barking Crab offers the casual atmosphere of a coastal clam shack in a funky urban setting, with a marina alongside for easy access by water, and all the rich resources of Boston only a short walk away.

Our great menu concentrates on fresh seafood but there’s also plenty to delight all appetites, including the vegetarian. Our wait and bar staff are cool, friendly and knowledgeable. And we can accommodate you whether you’re dining alone or arriving with two dozen of your closest friends. Come join the fun!

Since we opened in 2008, we are and always have been committed to serving the finest selection of local seafood in a fun, festive environment with a knowledgable service team dedicated to make your dining experience special. The Barking Crab is the perfect year round dining spot with an outdoor patio that is open during the summer months and a cozy wood-burning stove to keep you warm in the winter. On behalf of the entire Barking Crab team, we hope you enjoy your meal and look forward to seeing you again!
