The Barking Crab Restaurant Review

: This Boston fixture is not exactly a typical seafood eatery; the former summer-only restaurant has evolved into a year-round favorite. In the summer months, grab a seat at a picnic table on the back deck and enjoy the view. This is one spot you won’t feel out of place when you get down and dirty ripping apart a lobster (with a requisite bib around your neck, of course) and noshing on fried scallops from a cardboard box. The Barking Crab offers a full menu of fried, seared and grilled items from the sea as well as lobster rolls, scampis, and even a 12-ounce fire-grilled rib-eye. Feeling up to a challenge? Order the King platter, which comes complete with a ten-pound lobster and a four-pound mixed crab bowl. End the visit right with the “crabby” cannolis filled with ricotta cheese. There is a second location in Newport in the Brick Market Place.
