The Barking Crab

If you’ve been hankering to spend some time around a lot of people in Ohio State sweatshirts who will ask you to say “wicked pissah” for them, the Barking Crab in the Seaport is your spot. This might be the city’s biggest tourist trap restaurant outside of Faneuil Hall, and the seafood is just OK as a result. But the location - so close to the Fort Point Channel that some tables might get sprayed by water when a boat passes by - is excellent. If you can put your cynical side away for an hour, it’s a great place to grab a drink and a few bites.

Woods Hill Pier 4 review image

Woods Hill is a restaurant in the Seaport. It’s named after a farm, so that should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect.
