Set right on Boston Harbor, this red-shingled seafood shack and open-air tent is party central all summer long for locals and tourists. Join the crowds at the picnic tables beneath lamps made of Christmas light-strung lobster traps. Plastic buckets of fried clams or peel-and-eat shrimp help keep the beer-fueled festivities going. Summer is peak season, but The Barking Crab draws fans year-round to the Seaport for a clam shake vibe in the heart of the city.
