The crab basket and crab boil
The crab basket and crab boil were great. One in our party has shellfish allergies, so she ordered the hanger steak. That was the only dish that lacked flavor, but the mashed potatoes that came with the steak was delicious. Rule of thumb...don't go to a crab place for steak!

We liked the location in Newport near the waterfront where we were staying. The server was friendly and efficient, and she offered helpful recommendations. The chowder was thick and flavorful, seafood casserole moist and plentiful, and the grilled mahi mahi with pineapple salsa was cooked to.perfection with the slightly smokey taste of an open fire. We had the almond cake for dessert, and it was light and delicious. Prices were reasonable, and the atmosphere sort of like a seafood shanty. I would definitely return .

It was a great restaurant. Our server was friendly and gave us suggestions for places to go. The food was all really yummy. We went as a group of 4 for a bachelorette and the drinks were also really good! I had the sparkle martini! very good. Also over head were lights and it was a really good ambiance to the restaurant.

Great gluten free dinner in Newport
Needing to eat gluten free, I was so impressed with the knowledge of the staff. The waitress had the manager come over and he let me know I could have the meal I had ordered. Everything was double checked and I had NO reaction or problems from eating there!!! Would highly recommend it to anyone, bug especially if you have celiac or need gf food!! Will be going back next visit to Newport!!!

Crabs are best
We come here for crabs! The fried clams are great too but the crab legs are awesome. We ordered a couple pounds of the Bairdi and snow crab legs and there cooked perfectly, and so sweet and tasty. We had the buffalo scallop app and it was out of this world! They were spicy, with a little tang and melt in your mouth delicious!

Seafood by the sea
Took a group of foreign exchange students for lunch. Great time. Waitress was very patient with questions. Drinks constantly filled. Lots of attention paid to us. Ate outside on a lovely day. Food was plentiful and tasty.

great for kids
TheBarking Crab was great! Food was fantastic, especially if you are looking for fried seafood. The restaurant was not busy so we had great service and they were very accomodating to the young child we had with us. Would definitely visit again for a family lunch or dinner.

Good, basic food and Service
The variety of fish options is great and there is something for everyone, including those who do not like fish. The service was quick and the managers paid close attention to dinners needs. Portions are large so appetizers may not be needed for small eaters. Wonderful friendly atmosphere.

Loved the food
We were there during the winter season so there were not a lot of people there. That meant we had very individualized attention from our server. He took some time to stop and chat about the area and gave us his favorite picks off the menu. The fried clams were very good. Nice and sweet. Great meal. Also had the clam chowder, was also good. The wedge salad was amazing. There were huge chunks of blue cheese. I found out the dressing is made home made on premises. Desserts were very tempting but didn't have any room to eat any. My husband had a hot apple cider with bourbon and he said it was very good. He had the seafood casserole that he said was also very good. All in all a great meal. Definitely recommend and will return.
