Fodor's Expert Review Barking Crab Restaurant
Decked out in cheery colors of yellow, red, and green, this is, believe it or not, a real seaside clam shack located smack dab in the middle of Boston with stunning views of the financial district (and prices to match). An outdoor patio and lobster tent in summer, in winter it retreats indoors to a warmhearted version of a waterfront dive, where you'll encounter a classic New England clambake—chowder, Maine lobster, steamed Cape Cod clams, corn on the cob—or oysters and littlenecks from the raw bar, followed by meaty, golden crab cakes. The "all things local" motto even includes drinks, like unique quaffs from nearby Harpoon Brewery.
